    Wrigley Field banned from World Series?

    Just read this on MLB.Com. I never knew this was an issue at the time, but considering how close they came in 84, I can understand where they were coming from. https://www.mlb.com/news/featured/wrigley-field-lights-night-games

    Considering starting a 1972 set.

    Allen and Ginter at Walmart's

    Was at a local Walmart today to see if they had anything to satisfy the pack craving and found 4 value packs of Allen and Ginter. Decided for once that I would be "that guy" and buy the last 4. Glad that I did. Pulled a Gavin Lux autographed mini. The rest was unimpressive but the first pack...

    Thoughts on what you would like to see in a card set

    Just some random thoughts on some things that I would like to see in upcoming sets/inserts For the Topps flagship, one year I would like to see maybe the Managers listed by highest career win total or career winning percentage. It seems like in the 2000's, specifically 02 to 09 they were placed...

    just letting off some frustrations

    So I have been furloughed since Saint Patrick's Day when the casino I work at shutdown due to the Pandemic, and SE Wisconsin was hit pretty hard. Figured that it would be a month or two, but as the spring turned into summer and now we are half way through July, I have been getting antsy to get...

    Is it just me?

    So maybe this is my "Back in my day we walked uphill to school both ways" rant but this has been bugging me for a little over a year. Back when I was a teen and in my collecting glory, I thought it would be cool to have the Topps, Fleer, Donruss sets in 2 or 3 series like they did up until...

    Daughter wants to start TTM collection

    Was talking to my youngest daughter yesterday, and is somewhat excited to start sending out TTM requests. But instead of ballplayers, she wants to do actors, specifically Broadway actors. I know I used to get Autograph Collector Magazine, and they would publish all kinds of Celeb addresses. My...

    60 Years of Twins Baseball

    Hard to believe, but the Minnesota Twins are going into their age 60 season. I thought it would be fun to come up with an all-time roster (60 man) and see who had the 60 best hitting and pitching seasons. I am using stats from Retrosheet.org, and assigning a MVP type scoring system to each...
