  1. How to be a confident baseball player in 20 min!

    How to increase confidence in 20 min

    Confidence. Just say that word in your head. What does it mean to you? For me it means believing that I am able to perform up to my expectations toward the task at hand. Now for baseball, confidence is as valuable as gold....no forget gold. Its as valuable as a diamond because in the beginning, for a lot of players, our confidence is about as shiny as black coal. It takes a lot of refinement for the coal to turn into diamonds. The other reason ...

  2. My thoughts on players who charge a fee for ttm

    I have been doing ttm requests for more than 20 yrs now. I started to notice a trend about 5 yrs ago or so. Players started to send price lists with your cards UN signed back to you. They used to just keep the cards and that was it. Keeping you guessing whether or not they would sign them or not. I do not recall who's price list that I ever received first. I used to always get ticked off... John Doe wants me to PAY for his autograph!?!? WHATEVER!!!! I used to put the UN signed cards back in ...

  3. Donruss Elite Extra Edition...The MLBPA's Worst Baseball Card Nightmare?

    For two years now, the 2006 and 2007 seasons, the Major League Baseball Players' Association has done something very odd. They defined what a rookie card constituted. Yes, a baseball player's first baseball card. Now you have to qualify for a rookie card. I have a thread sticky'ed in the Baseball Card Forum about it...I invite you to look at it...for the whole situation, which is too long to discuss in this blog entry. However, I will say that had these idiotic rules (which have been strangely championed ...

  4. More "Errors" from Topps...

    In 2006, Topps released a baseball card...a true rookie card...of Alex Gordon in their series one set. Just one problem...according to the then-new MLBPA rules, Gordon wasn't eligible for a rookie card. At the time, the general feeling was that Topps wanted to see just how serious the MLBPA was. A little later on in 2006, this time in Series 2, a Cuban defector by the name of Alay Soler earned rookie status after debuting with the New York Mets. Topps scrambled to get out a card of Soler, but couldn't ...

  5. 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 ...
