Let's Talk About Sets Volume 62:2022 Donruss Rookie Sweater Dual Sweaters

Let's talk about sets baby, let's talk about them with me, let's talk about sets!

It's starting to get colder, sure you hope have your sweater out. Or if you are talking sets, I sure hope you have it off....and put into a Panini card.

For the past three years, I have been collecting sets of player's ugly sweaters and have done pretty well with chasing these down.

I have collected both the base and dual sets.

I have completed the 2020 base set, down to two on the dual, missing all of 2021s duals and have only three left for the  base. Then last years I am under ten for the base and down to just to two on the duals after snagging this latest one.

Aidan and Williams on this dual sweater.

All that remains now is Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson dual and the Kenny Pickett and George Pickens dual for me to complete that set.

Then the single ones.

Sets is harder for the single ones since there are so many.

In comments today, let me know if you can lend a hand with my sets needs (yes, that came out totally wrong and on purpose) by messaging me on Twitter or emailing me at 

You can find all of my needs for the 2022 Donruss Rookie Sweaters HERE.

Thanks for any help!!

Giant's Sunday: Brent Sent These

It's Sunday and another Game Day for the boys in Blue. Today, the Gmen are on the road after their home beatdown by the Seahawks.

It doesn't get any easier today on the road either as they face one of the league's best teams in the Miami Dolphins.

It could get ugly fast with both sides of the ball playing terrible.
All I can hope is that this guy can get healthy and play this week. They will need him.

I keep waiting for the guys from last year to step up their game as well. Kayvon had a sack last week but otherwise wasn't around. WanDale was probably the best receiver last week but that's not saying much.

It's almost like they forgot about this guy as well. He is a speedster who has decent hands that hasn't even been apart of the offense this season. 

Well, what offense they have had.

Okay, enough with my disappointing rant about this season.

Let's just look at some cards.

Always been fond of Landon Collins. Last year's Pick 6 that pretty much secured the Giants playoff spot against the Colts will always stick in my mind as the biggest play for this team since the Manningham catch in Super Bowl 46.

My third Darnay Holmes autograph.

Two relics I didn't have in my Darius Slayton PC. I am thinking some days maybe I need to put my Slayton PC on TCDB as well and see where I rank.

Julian Love autographs. I think Panini liked using this photo a few times.

Another Love autograph, but with a different photo this time.

The X-man is on the roster, but on the practice squad. He hasn't lived up to the hype that was around him for a while. I kept hoping he was going to help this pass rush that needs it.

Well, I am sure I will be watching today's game, maybe covering my eyes by the beginning of the second quarter.

Thanks again to Brent (@Brent3323) for the Giants cards. Even with a lost season, I at least have these cards to enjoy.

I must also note that Brent also sent me some stuff to help me build up a Christmas gift. Great guy!

I Enjoyed These

I wonder with it being Columbus Day, if Christopher Columbus ever discovered wrestling cards?

I know I did last week.

Usually, I am not a fan at all of wrestling, but when one of my mail days last week included some wrestling cards they caught my eye. 

There was something appealing about them.

First off, these Revolution cards look superb. Brings me back to the 90's Revolution days and the image for Macho Man used on the Revolution design also is outstanding.


I have never watched John Cena wrestle, but have seen him in a few movies. Select always looks great no matter the sport, but this image also brings this card out with a 3D appeal.

And finally, this image with my past history of enjoying horror movies, works well. I have no idea what this entrance is or was, but it's crazy scary and I am aboard.

It's a perfect card for October.

Before I finish up this post, I just wanted to point out I don't plan on collecting wrestling cards. I already have too much I collect.

Though, I may add a couple more Prizmatic Entrance cards of Bliss, that card is just cool.

Let's Talk About Sets Volume 61: 2022 Upper Deck Marvel Allure Base Set

Let's talk about sets baby, lets talk about sets with me. Let's collect them all and complete it to, let's talk about sets.

Today as I sit down with you and discuss sets, I am thinking about all of the sets I need still. I am not sure if they will ever all be completed, but maybe.

The last time I put up one of these posts it was for the 1991 Pro Set Musicards that I still need to complete along with the second series.

Today is the only other non-sport set I am chasing, and it comes along with my new addiction to Marvel movies.

My set chase for this one started off with a blaster box break then expanded to some trading to help narrow my list down some.

Which got me down to these out of the 150-card checklist. 100 is the base set, 50 are Sp's.

I hope I can finish up this one and the Musicards set.

If you have any set help for this one or either, just drop me an email at and let me know. I always genuinely appreciate all help!

Single Card Mail Day:2022 Select Autograph Matt Breida

Anytime I can add a Giants autograph I don't have yet, I am going to.

Last year Panini added two Giants to their Select product I didn't expect to make a product in a Giants uniform, but I was excited that they did.

The first one was Jaylon Smith who I added a few months ago, the other was Matt Breida. Both players the Giants added to their roster a year ago with Breida being the only one of the two still on the roster. For some reason or another, Breida was overpriced until I found a cheaper one and snagged it.

The bonus for the card is the fact that it's also a nice-looking card.

I will be sure to watch the checklists again to see if any new Giants make the Panini roster for this season.

Tradin' With Dion Again!

My trading has cut back a lot and definitely has cut back when it comes to trading with bloggers. It's hard to be a football and non-sport collector in a world of baseball card bloggers. Luckily, there are still a few bloggers left that collect or have cards that I need which is what led me to another trade with  Dion's Autograph Collection blog.

It gets harder to land Giants cards I don't have from the past, but last year and this year with my lack of funds, it will make it easier on people to trade with me as I don't have much.

But, sometimes there are exceptions to older cards (by older I am talking early 90's and 2008 til 2021) like this Sterling Shepard Prizm silver. 

However, when it comes to Allen and Ginter, I don't mind duplicates.

Or these First Pitch cards. At some point, I really need to see what I need to finish all of the sets for the First Pitch series. I still think this is one of Topps most creative inserts in their base products in a while. Much better than those 86 and 87 reprint inserts I hate.

Thanks again to Dion for the trade and I know we are already working on the next which should be another good one.

Hopefully I can make a few more trades after this one so I can continue to put up new posts.

Cardboard Review:BCW LaserWeld 9-Pocket Pages

I had thought about posting some new Giants cards I have in drafts today, but after last night's embarrassing game topped off with the entire start of this season, I said, nah. Let's go to something else.

Instead, let's do a product review instead.

BCW announced not too long ago, that they had created a new 9-Pocket Page that is supposed to be top notch among all other pages.
And I tend to agree.

The pages are done by laser welding, which helps strengthen the page and keep if flat without bending. The heavy gauge polypropylene helps with that as well.

Upon first glance, the page is crystal clear and when you pick it up you can definitely tell the difference in thickness of the page.

Here are the pages side by side, the laserweld on the left and the regular on the right. I think you can see the difference in the pages immediately.

And when you add cards, the clarity stands out first. But what you guys can't see is how easy the cards slide in and it's not something I can show you, so you will have to take my word for.

Sometimes it's a struggle with some pages I have found to slide the cards in without causing some corner damage.

I know this is a short review as it's really hard to show much more when it comes to pages.

So, I thought I would include this video by BCW about these pages. Watch it here,

Overall, I really like this upgrade to the pages. Not just for the storage of cards, but I really think these will upgrade my PWE shipping as well because of the thickness.

My Other Articles

Two posts in a row on this blog and this is a late nighter. No, I am not turning into Night Owl Card Blog, I am just watching my NY Giants get shredded by Seattle.

This is going to be a long season.

What won’t be long though is this post. I just wanted to share some links to other articles I have written for other companies the last couple of years hoping you all would enjoy a late night or morning read depending on when you read this.

First article was one I had published in Beckett a couple years ago that they also put on their website. Link for that one is here:

Second article link I am sharing is a post I did about cheap shipping method for BCW. You can read that one here:

And finally a second article I wrote for BCW about how I number my binders and how that helps me locate cards faster is here:

I hope you guys enjoy these more than I am enjoying this game….if not, I am in for a long writing season.

Sunday's Giants: Goal Line Graph

It's Sunday and it's been a while since I posted a Giants card on Sunday.

Sundays on Sport Card Collectors used to mean Rodney's Cardboard, but with the lack of Rodney's out there that I need, I may need to do some rearranging.

Over the past year, I have maybe added three new Rodney Hamptons if that tells you how tough things have been. Two of which I have shown off with one that I haven't. Stay tuned next Sunday for that unique piece (notice how I didn't say card).

In the meantime, let's check out this Sunday's Giants card.

This is a 2020 Playbook Goal Line Graphs of Darius Slayton.

Normally I try to aim for Giant's players I don't have autographs of, but I have always fallen for cards with great photography and this one has it.

This is the second one of these I own, except the other is a blue parallel patch numbered to 49 as opposed to this base one being numbered to 199.

I am not sure how many parallels there are to these, but I don't plan on adding anymore at least anytime soon. We all know how collectors like myself can be sometimes :)

Here's hoping for a Giants win tomorrow night vs the Seahawks!!
