Soliciting Readers


OK, So time to get back into blogging full time. I am going to be discussing another passion of mine. LEGO. Lego is a timeless toy. I really enjoy building with Lego blocks (No Megablocks Knockoffs please). Here’s a few custom creations I have made,




So if you like Lego, Sports Cards, Non-Sports Cards, Old Toys and Games, stay tuned.

Back Where it all began AKA Blocked again.

So when I started on twitter and this blog 2 years ago, my very first post was about being blocked on Twitter. My First Twitter Block

Well, it’s happened again. And by the same person. and this time my account was temporarily suspended. I’ve been a Beckett subscriber for over 20 years to multiple magazines. I have thousands of Beckett graded cards that I have submitted. 

It’s sad that their employees can’t take a joke. 

By the way, the tweet that got me suspended?

@chrisolds2009 hasn’t posted in a while. Was there a free AYCE buffet today?

I’m Back

Well, it’s been two long years since I’ve been able to blog, tweet, or even facebook. But I am back online. I haven’t busted any product in two years. I haven’t even seen many new products. I did get into a group break of some Heritage a few months ago. Not even sure what year Heritage it is. I’ve missed you all. I have some reading, research, and more to do. I look forward to talking to you all again.

Card of the Day: 1/21/11

1909-11 Colgan’s Chips Tin Jim Thorpe SGC 92 from the Skydash Collection

A few years ago someone showed up on Net54 claiming to have Approximately 1200 T206 cards and 157 Colgan “Tin Tops”. He was initially ridiculed by several posters. Ultimately, the poster sold his collection thru an Auction House and made a very nice sum of money. So remember the story of Skydash next time someone shows up on a message board claiming to have an ungodly find.
