  1. 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." ...

  2. Upper Deck Finally Makes a Good Card Set...

    Well, I opened just three packs of cards today. I'm saving up for the Bowman Draft and Bowman Sterling issues along with Donruss Elite Extra Edition (yeah, I want to find out who's in it) and Topps '52 Rookies (say everything you want about stale set design...it will literally have every MLBPA "Rookie" as part of the base set and has three autographs per box). I'm difficult to impress regarding Upper Deck's offerings aside from their base set, but Upper Deck Masterpieces is quite different. ...

    People laugh when "East Coast Bias" is cried out, but I really believe that's true. You don't ever see ESPN doing backflips about sports teams in St. Louis, Kansas ...

    Well, some major news has spread across Cincinnati in the past couple of days concerning many key aspects to Reds' baseball.

    First, the resignation of COO John Allen. Allen kept this team alive during the '90s and during this decade. He has been a key component in Reds' baseball and will be missed.

    The second and much more important story is of the Ol' Left-Hander Joe Nuxhall. Joe is currently hospitalized and will have a pacemaker inserted during a surgery operation. ...

  5. 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 ...
