3 Weeks Of Christmas Giveaways!

It's that time of year where you give back to others, not that I haven't done that all year long, but it's a main focus this time of year.

So I wanted to do a three week giveaway with a few cards up each week you can win. Entries will be simple and winners will be random. These contests start Sunday November 29th and will run til December 20th with each winner chosen weekly.

Here are the offering of prizes along with maybe some bonuses each week. Depends on turnout.

Week 1:

Week 2:

Week 3:

Good Luck to everyone that enters! And Merry Christmas!

ODELL What A Mail Day Part 1


Were the exact words that came out of my mouth when my wife dropped a big-mail-day-early-Christmas-gift-bomb in front of me. I can finally take an Odell Beckham autographed card off my want list. Actually, I could take it off twice because she picked me up two! She got one amazing deal on them so knowing that it was on top of my Christmas list, she picked them up.

And here is card number one. The double zero jerseys always bother me, but other than that, a nice looking card.

And here is card number 2.....well...not yet. I will save that one for tomorrow.

My 2014 Black Friday Steal!

Last year on Twitter, someone sent me a link to Amazon letting me know that there was something on there I would really want. Normally I don't check out links like that, but knowing who sent it, I was fine looking and glad that I did.

Normally I am not a big memorabilia person as I prefer everything in card form, but looking at it and knowing the $20 price tag, I left a quick subtle hint to my wife and in ten minutes it was mine. Grabbed it just in time to as only two were remaining at that point.

Super Bowl 46 Autograph mini helmet of Ahmad Bradshaw.
If you don't recall, he was the winning TD in that game. Technically he should had stopped before the goal line lining the Giants up for a last second game winning FG but fell in by mistake. Which I didn't mind, but the Giants barely held on after Tom Brady's Hail Mary attempt at the end. But, they still won and I still cheer on Ahmad because of his big role in the win.

This was by far the best Black Friday pick up for me in terms of my collection. Not sure if I will look again this year or not.

What's the best steal you have gotten on Black Friday for your collection whether it's cards or memorabilia?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Spend today being thankful for everything in your life. Even the smallest things deserve a thanks.

I know I am thankful for God, family, house over my head, food on the table, this blog, you guys, the hobby and life in general.

If we were just talking about the hobby in terms of thankfulness, I would say I am most thankful for this card:

It doesn't seem like much, but this is the very first card I posted on here (same pic too) that kicked off Sport Card Collectors. Without this blog I wouldn't have been able to see the hobby in a new way that has expanded my interest in it even more.

What's the one card you are most thankful for and why?

Topps Redemption Mail Day

My patience with redemptions is very thin, I can usually only make it the four months before I require a replacement no matter what the card is. I would rather have something in hand than nothing.

So I replaced my 2014 Topps Five Star Auto parallel of Rashad Jennings, yes I didn't want that to go because it was a Giant, but I did anyways and go this in the mail....

A 2012 Topps Five Star rookie autograph of Michael Floyd.

It's a fair replacement in my opinion. I miss out on a Giants auto, but I get a rookie auto for the PC. 50/50 to me.

Thoughts on this mail day or your Topps redemptions you know where to leave em!
