Inside 2009 Upper Deck Series One UD Predl products, the Upper Deck company released a nine-card insert set entitled: “Historic First Predictors.” Theses cards made nine bold predictions for 2009 and stated that if any of them came true during the course of the year that it would do “something big.” Well one of those cards was Chicago being named host city for the 2016 Summer Games, and on October 2nd, that might just happen. Check Upper Deck’s site for more on the Historic First Predictor cards.

Hobby In Trouble?

Posted: February 3, 2009 in General Card News

Burn out might be a better way of putting it. I started this blog to write some great stories about the hobby. I have the experience, the connections, and many more great outlets for hobby info plus more. But over the last few months, I just can’t get into it. It seems like the card compaines are a joke, Beckett’s web site has went no where but down since changing their site, the few card shops around here have closed, and just the money I dumped into this hobby has became a waste. I collect mostly to collect, but I do sell some to make alittle cash for more cards, but if it’s not signed or maybe game used, you can count on not making a thing. I think it’s time to step back and see if it’s really worth it.

Each year I always put the Topps set together, and I do have two boxes of 2009 Topps on their way, but after that I’m not sure what’s to come. Have fun collecting, until next time… I’m out
