Upper Deck gave collectors a peak at the new big Jordan sneaker cards, but in reading the message boards a lot of collectors had the same question. ARE THESE GAME USED? Well according to collectors on the boards, they claimed UD wouldn’t answer that question. They did come forward and answered that later on Twitter.


The show “A Piece of the Game” is back, and now you may be able to be part of an upcoming show.  APOTG will be at Baseball Card Exchange in Schererville,IN on November 24th, from 10-5 filming segments of #Whaddayagot. Looking how you can watch the show, Click Here.



CCCThe National wrapped up in Cleveland last week with plenty of big news breaking on a number of topics, but for collectors in Indianapolis, there was one more piece of news that was released on Wednesday. We give you Circle City Collectibles. Check out the announcement here. (Skip to 22:22, or watch the Manning Lovefest before hand). Good Luck to CCC.


Plus while were talking collecting in INDY, if your looking for something to do Friday night the 8th, Baseball Card Exchange will be also doing a “GRAND CASE BREAK” on Friday at 5PM that will include 3 sealed cases of 2013 Bowman FB, 2013 Prestige FB, and 2014 Inception FB.

I recently grabbed 2 boxes of the 2014 Topps Turkey Red Online Exclusive, and I don’t expect to hit the Golden Ticket or even walk away with some HUGE auto but I shouldn’t have to open the same pack twice, twice.

Michael Sam 2While Michael Sam is in Indianapolis this week for the NFL Combine, Press Pass Inc. is hard at work putting together the incoming 2014 Draft Class set and that will include autograph cards of Michael Sam.

Earlier this week Press Pass Inc. announced “in conjunction with the return of its Press Pass Football product line, the first on-cards autographs of the incoming 2014 draft class. Collectors will have the opportunity to receive a free autograph card of ground-breaking rookie, Michael Sam.”  The release goes on to say that each hobby box will contain 6 autos from players like Johnny Manziel, Jadeveon Clowney, Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles along with many others.

That’s great you say but how do you grab that Sam auto? According to Press Pass Inc. collectors can claim their free auto, by sending the Hobby Box UPC Code, along with a 3″ x 5″ card with their name and complete address along with email address to:

 Press Pass Rookie Football 2014 – Michael Sam

9805 NorthCross Center Ct, Suite H

Huntersville, NC 28078

Also found this little item for dealers to spend alittle more on this product.

2014 Topps

With temps around -10 to -15 here in the Midwest, 2014 Topps baseball couldn’t come at a better time. Hopefully this release in a few days will help warm things up. So until we are able to rip packs we’ll have to settle for just checking out the checklist. Here’s a link to the full 2014 checklist that Beckett has released.
