Join our new SubReddit for The Card Swap. Lloyd is going to be helping grow the Sub and provide another place for the community to chat cards.

 

As someone with an actual Uncle Larry, I had make sure to stash some of these in the PC. Plus I like players on their rental teams.

 

Ever wonder why Lou Piniella had multiple rookie cards? I did, so I went to do some research, only to find out he has 3! He also has dual rookie cad with Mike Brumley in 1964. Not Pictured :-( But I did find a great blog that explains it. Plus he does a good project with them. Check out Cards That Never Were!

 

When Topps did Football. Check out this BASE card of two HOFers! Don't mind the dust. Pulling cards like this is what made me always stick with collecting.

 

This is a new addition that I found this week, but just look at this. I'll be trying to get Drew Bledsoe and Barry Sanders in this set.

 

NEW BREAK MATS!

Not happy with the design when it comes to how it shows up on camera so I'll be ordering another one for breaks. They are really awesome though and I can't wait to get it the way I want it. I went through Inked Gaming and I would recommend them for sure!


Should I print a few and have them available on the site?

 

A great write up from MLB.com talking about the new balanced schedule for the 2023 season. He uses a lot of numbers, but it's really good for what to expect from the new schedule.

 

What MLB rule change are looking forward to the most?

  • Pitch Clock

  • Shift Ban

  • Bigger Bases

  • Balanced Schedule

The Vinyl Swap is now offering Pre-Orders!

 

Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you haven't already. Likes are always appreciated. Here's some playlists if you want to check all the non-break videos. THANK YOU!

 

Here's some stuff to check out and watch on eBay! Photos take you to current listings.


Sapphire Update is here, and gives you a chance to get a Julio RC in Sapphire without paying for the Chrome version.

 

There's others rookies this year too. How about checking out some Bobby Witt Jr in Topps Finest?

 

He just keeps winning. Do the 49ers have their guy?

 

Curious about Lou Piniella Rookies now?

 

One more favor to ask, if you use eBay for purchasing singles and stuff. Please book mark this link for when you search and I will get a small commission from eBay. Doesn't charge anything extra for your purchase but will be an easy way to support the site. THANK YOU!

 

Check out all of our Highlights from Topps Finest, but here's a peak...

 

I leave you with some fun stuff from Instagram. Do you follow me?

I have to say, I’m a fan of the show and tell each week with the giveaway. Any excuse to show off some cards, right?


I also like the random card stories or whatever you usually add, Aaron. Like the Pinella cards this week for example.
