Join me live Tonight at 8est while I recap all new singles that are available and will be the next singles to hit the site. Lots of stuff to check out and it's all sorted and ready to go. I'll also go through a dollar bin of singles. Lots of this stuff I can toss in to your break cards. It's not stuff good enough for the site, but I think there's stuff people will think is cool. Should be a fun night with lots to chat about!



Saved up some Maildays from the week and opened them live. Get a peak at the next batch of singles available. Plus a special shipment from Robert that was a total surprise. Thanks so much, sir!

Bowman Draft is also set to arrive on Wednesday. We'll check out a jumbo box and see how we do!


Found some cool stuff while browsing Instagram this past week and thought you'd appreciate the stats, too. Maddux and Gwynn stats are usually my favorite. The Aaron Nola one just made me laugh!

Oh, how did that sweatshirt get in there...

Lots of nice stuff out there right now that I may not have at the moment. Here's some stuff to check for on eBay. Images take you to current eBay listings.

Rookie Parallels are always a fun chase from Triple Threads.

Wanted to find this game to show you all, and was elated to find that Jomboy has done a video on it!


Here's some stuff that's heading to my PC boxes. I'm sure it's all been shown in videos but it gives me more time with them before they are box-bound.

Is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?

  • No

  • No

  • Yes

  • It's a Baseball Movie



For a chance to win a sealed Topps Holiday Mega Box...

Comment below with, What's your favorite Baseball Movie?

Major League or Field of Dreams for me. I tend to lean towards Field of Dreams because it was a favorite movie of mine when I was younger. I was a bit older before I got a true appreciation of Major League.

I'll randomize everyone that comments an answer before the next News Swap issue. The winner will receive a free Topps Holiday Mega Box


That's it for this week's News Swap! Thanks everyone for reading and continuing to support the newsletter, website, and channel!

I'll jump in here. Another vote for Sandlot. Will always remind me of being young, trying to gather enough guys to go to local school and playing baseball all day.

But I'll always watch Moneyball, Field of Dreams, Major League, A League of their Own, and The Natural when I run across them


Sandlot edges out Field of Dreams for me. My hot take is that Major League 2 was better than the original.

This is a tough one for sure, I hadn't realized how many great baseball movies they're are. I'll go with sandlot, but next week it could be major league or the natural lol.

People in the know understand my bias toward the Major League movies but excluding those my all time fav is probably Mr. Baseball.

It probably speaks a lot more to my age when I saw it than anything but I loved the movie. Seeing the Japanese baseball league represented really spoke to me at an age when I was trying to digest all the baseball I could and I was fascinated by any league that was not directly MLB.

Combine that with the best mustache to ever live being in the movie (fight me), the baseball being shown being pretty good and Selleck being a baseball nut; it just felt like he actually wanted to be in the movie rather…

This is a tough one, although I do enjoy Moneyball as my favorite serious baseball movie, I think my favorite as a fan of comedy would have to be The Benchwarmers. Now I'm going to have to go watch both again lol
