Recent Findings: Our Sport Card Finds

Last week, we were given 2 boxes of random cards from a relative. The boxes contained opened and unopened cards mostly non-sport from a variety of years. We thought we would break down our findings and share them with our fans!!

We are almost to the end of our recent finds segment. One more after this one..and we saved what we believe was the best find for last!



Shaq's Mcdonalds rookie

Alonzo Mourning Rookie

2001 Topps baseball and gallery of cards with it




Tino Martinez Topps Gold Label

The infamous "Fat Toad" Hideki Irabu Topps Gold Label rookie
 Really liked the Mcdonalds set find...there was actually 2 of them. The Topps packs were still in there wrappers and opened. We were hoping for a Ichiro find but none was found. There were only four packs also.

What do you guys think?

Recent Findings: Wheaties Boxes

Last week, we were given 2 boxes of random cards from a relative. The boxes contained opened and unopened cards mostly non-sport from a variety of years. We thought we would break down our findings and share them with our fans!!



Wheaties boxes are always fun..didn't know they made such a thing as Jeter Flakes..great additons.

We used to collect them with Ken Griffey Jr. on the front and they were always kept sealed. These were flat but are in great shape and we plan on using them to frame and display.

Do any of you collect boxes?

Sport Card Collectors Week 4 NFL Picks

Well, here they are..week four. I don't know about the rest of you, but its been a weekly struggle with getting picks right. Last week had a horrible week going 6-10. Hopefully this week will be much improved!

THURSDAY NIGHT

Browns @ Ravens:  Plain and simple...the Ravens are the better team and will win but this game will be closer than most think..Ravens 28-16

SUNDAY

Carolina @ Atlanta: Been wanting to pick this game as an upset but Hotlanta is playing so well and Cam looked lost last Thursday against the Giants...Falcons 28-17

New England @ Buffalo: I want to pick Buffalo..but the last two weeks have been heartbreakers for the Pats. And I can't at all see them starting out their season 1-3. For some reason I think this may turn into a possible blowout by the Pats...35-21

Minnesota @ Detroit: The Lions come in after a high scoring affair with the Titans. We know they can score points, but can they stop anyone. Adrian Peterson seems to like to show up when the Lions are around and this team was impressive against the 49ers...but I still think the Lions are a better team...Lions 31-14

San Diego @ Kansas City: Phillip Rivers and the Chargers did not show up last week against Atlanta. Kansas City pulled out a road comeback against the Saints. I wanna say San Diego..but I am going with the upset here...Kansas City 27-24

Seattle @ St.Louis: Another start for rookie Wilson of the Seahawks but this time on the road in St. Louis where another top pick lost already there this year. St. Louis has been a tough out for some teams such as Detroit and Chicago..I am thinking Rams here...St.Louis 24-17

San Fran @ NYJ: The 49ers stay on the road after a dismal performance against the Vikings but they are facing a team with some injuries and a lack of offense. I think the 49ers get it done on the road and the Jets should start thinking about more Tebow Time...49ers 27-10

Tennessee @ Houston: The Titans come in after a great week by QB Jake Locker but still another bad game for CJ2K. Where did he go??? The Texans are the best team in the NFL..thats right...I said it and should be able to beat a one sided offense in Tennessee.. Houston 30-13

Miami @ Arizona: Miami should be 2-1 going into this game against 3-0 Arizona but a missed FG cost them a game against the Jets. Tannehill is getting better with each start but so isn't Kolb..Arizona heading to 4-0 with a 20-13 win.

Cincy @ Jacksonville: The Jags showed heart and Gabbert made a nice throw in their comeback against the Colts but the Bengals are looking good on offense as they are firing on all cylinders. The Jags might keep is close if MJD can have another big game but I think Cincy wins on the road...Bengals 21-10

Oakland @ Denver: Peyton still searching for win number two for the Broncos while the Raiders go to Denver a place they have success in on a huge high beating the Steelers. I think Denver is underachieving. This is almost a must win for them and I think they will get it barely...Broncos 27-24

New Orleans @ Green Bay: This matchup is much different than the last. Green Bay is impressive. New Orleans is not. After 3 straight disappointing defeats and now a team that is much better than them..I expect a Packer win 35-17

Washington @ Tampa Bay: RG3 continues to impress, especially me, but Washington now has lost two straight like Tampa Bay who looked much better against Dallas than they did in NY. Tampa's got a tough coach and a good D. Washington has big time injuries on defense and it showed last week. I expect this to come down to the fourth quarter and a late TD gives Tampa Bay a boost with a 21-17 win.

SUNDAY NIGHT

NY Giants @ Philadelphia: We see what the Giants can do when turnovers come their way and thats what Philly does best..turn the ball over. This is a NFC beast of a matchup and will be close throughout. If Philly can cut down on the turnovers and block the Giants from getting to Vick they will win. For some reason, after seeing that team not improve on those parts for the last three weeks I expect the Giants to squeak out a big road division win..Giants 23-17

MONDAY NIGHT

Chicago @ Dallas: The Cowboys stay home after a not impressive win over the Bucs last week. Chicago has looked good at times and bad at others. I think both are equal in talent but will give the home team the slight advantage...Cowboys 24-21
