  1. Beckett Changed Their Minds About Donruss! Head For the Hills!

    This was actually about a month ago Beckett flip-flopped on the decision to make 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition a Major League prospect set, thus almost certainly guaranteeing XRC status. I haven't gotten a chance to sit and post until now, though.

    The first thing I'm going to guarantee you is that the baseball card arm of the MLBPA attempts to wipe Donruss off the map. They may do, they may not. Really, only time will tell. But Donruss might have one out, though oddly enough, it ...

  2. An Update on Donruss And a Modest Proposal...

    Well, it would seem the Donruss Elite Extra Edition saga is finally behind us. Beckett classified the set as a Minor League set despite having no exemption or mention of a Minor League team. This could be because Donruss made one hasty, last-minute change to the set. While at first the cards merely stated the city name the player played in, this was changed to "Drafted by [whatever team drafted the player]." But Donruss did it so hastily that they made a few errors. For example, David ...

  3. Donruss Reportedly In Hot Water With MLBPA...

    My very first post to this blog was that Donruss would catch heat for its Elite Extra Edition baseball (and "basketball"...I put that in quotes because it features over 70 baseball players and 10 basketball players) set. It seems the heat is already being turned up, and the MLBPA is basically waiting for the set to come out. Strangely enough, they're focusing their rage on just two cards: those of Luke Hochevar and Ross Detwiler. Why? Because from everything I've heard, Donruss' set finally ...

  4. Why you shouldn't sell your Barry Bonds rookie cards/somewhat valuable cards now...

    When you first read the title of this blog entry, you probably either thought me insane or merely that I made a typo. Don't sell your Bonds cards? Dalkowski, are you a a beer can short of a six pack? No, I'm not. And the value of Barry Bonds cards going into freefall is exactly why you should hang onto them (if you missed the boat in 2001, anyway).

    About a week ago, a friend of mine sold a 1986 Topps Traded Tiffany Barry Bonds XRC for $25 on eBay. Go there now and you're lucky if ...

  5. A New Concept...The "Hobbyist Rookie Card"...

    With all the new rules in place regarding rookie cards and what they constitute, it's often difficult to find out what a rookie card is to a hobbyist. What those two words mean to him or her. While I don't (and won't) often quote anything put out by Donruss, I must say I have to agree with them here. A Donruss rep told I think it was Beckett in an interview for the upcoming release of Elite Extra Edition..."We believe that the hobbyist should determine what constitutes a rookie card." ...
