If you aren’t familiar with YouTube user “allenmp” apparently they are a few guys in the Philippines that open numerous  amounts of high priced products. Earlier this year they opened over 50 cases of Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball 2008-2009. So it’s good to know that all those great cards that most of us are chasing are probably sitting over in the Philippines. Check out the video, it’s pretty good and by the way Upper Deck said they will replace the empty box.

Panini America unveiled another short-printed Rookie Card from its 2009 Prestige Basketball set, something Pacers fans will be excited about. Card No. 163 of Tyler Hansbrough. TH, was the 2008 ACC Player of the Year at North Carolina and is the the Tar Heels’ all-time leading scorer.

FavreBrett Favre rookie cards were among the hottest in the marketplace in the mid-1990s. Then he approached the NFL’s touchdown pass record in 2007 and they spiked again, but a year in New York didn’t really impact sales much, but now that Favre has the Minnesota Vikings off to a 4-0 start and seems to have not lost a thing, is it time to buy? Check out Sports Collectors Daily’s Favre Rookie Card Resurgence.

Eight Men Out

Posted: October 1, 2009 in Baseball Cards, beckett, Black Sox, Chris Olds

JoeThere are plenty of scandals for baseball through the years but today is the day, October 1st, 90 years ago that one of the darkest days in baseball officially began. The throwing of the 1919 World Series by the Chicago White Sox, which lead to eight players  being banned from the game for life. Chris Olds of Beckett takes a look at why we don’t see many cards of “The Black Sox” and why that might all change. Check out the story here.
