Collecting baseball cards for me has been a big part of my life. It has always been a way for me to get closer to the sports and players I enjoy. I quit collecting in high school out of pure frustration of the hobby and did not return for quite a while.
Topps Chrome products are my all time favorite. I love refractors and the chromium card stock. The 2017 Topps Chrome Baseball release was going to be a big one with the Aaron Judge frenzy that is currently taking over the card world. Thankfully, I was able to get my hand on a hobby box.
Summer has been busy. Very busy. My son is a year older and is far more active outside this year. My wife and I decided to tackle the landscaping this summer too. This has led me to be very tired at night; Too tired to keep up with my blog. However, an awesome mail day gave me some much needed motivation.
The NBA Hoops basketball products have always been a nostalgic favorite of mine. A basketball product born during the junk wax era, it still commands a low price point, large checklist (for today’s standard), and a sprinkle of inserts.
I was working up in my office last Thursday when my wife just walked in and dropped a box on my desk. What was this? I wasn’t expecting any cards. Well… I am always expecting cards, but not a full 200 count box.
