    Sports Cards Mania

    I get frustrated with the crazy markup on current cards, so I decided to go nostalgic and go back to my youth with a box of 1991-1992 Skybox basketball on eBay. Get to scratch the itch of opening packs with one of my favorite card designs and only paid $50.

    GMA. Costs him $8 per card to get graded in the quantities he is getting graded (100+). He knows it isn't as good as PSA, Beckett, or SGC, but he doesn't want to pay their exorbitant fees and have to wait forever to get his cards back.

    This is what my father in law does. He is retired and scours eBay for deals on cards (especially Tom Bradys) that he can flip on eBay or sell at our local auction house. If it is a higher value card he gets a deal on, he uses an inexpensive grading service to both protect the card and add some...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I agree with this 100%. My family is too used to YTTV to switch away now. Instead, I purchased the MLB At Bat audio option for $20/season. This will allow me to listen to all MLB games, which for me makes more sense. I have 2 kids and busy evenings, so it is easier to listen to games than...

    Adam Schefter: SJH will carry his water. Or will he?

    No disrespect intended, but shouldn't a reporter just provide the facts and let the consumer of news make their own opinion? I think Dan Snyder is a dirtbag, but I struggle that so much of the news nowadays has to force a perspective/opinion instead of providing facts and relying on the...
