Any Hockey Autograph Experts Out There?

I got this program signed by twenty-some players last year at the AHL All Star Game. I know Luke Adam, Alex Giroux, Mark Wotton, Viatcheslav Voynov, Jerome Samson, are all on here, but I cant figure the rest. Can you, or do you know anyone who can?

It would be a huge help. Thanks!!

By the Way, THanks for the 50 followers! I never believed my blog would become this popular!!!

Top 100 Cards in My Collection #1

Im going to make this a one a day segment, we will go through , in no particular order, to count down my favorite 100 cards. Our first one should speak for itself.

What it is:

This is a 2007 Topps CoSigners Dual Autograph of Matt Kemp and Chris Iannetta.

Why do I like it?

I have always liked Kemp, so to get this auto out of a pack was fantastic. Also helps that Iannetta isn't a scrub, either.

Where did I get it?

I got this card out of a hobby pack that I got from Dave and Adams a couple months ago.

Is it available?

For the right offer, of course. :)

That's all for now!!

Random Thing I have That May or May Not Be Available (RTIHTMOMNBA) 11/26

For today's Random Thing I have, I have an authentic DJ King autographed puck. DJ has spent time in the Washington Capitals organization, and was up with Washington all last year. He started the year in Washington, but was recently sent down to the Hershey Bears.

Speaking of the Bears, Im going to the game tonight to see them hopefully destroy the Lake Erie Monsters. That's all for now!

An Interesting Edition to my collection

Hey there- Im in for a quick post. I picked this up for five bucks at the local antique shop. Think I got a pretty good deal as it's a piece of history, even if I'm not a Phillies fan.

For those that cant see, Its a ticket to the 1980 World Series Game 1, between Philadelphia and Kansas City. I think it's cool, what do you think?

Thats all for now!

Two packs, Two Relics

Hey guys- Was out at Target looking for some Black Friday deals and decided to pick up two 99 cent packs of 2009 Donruss Americana. I always thought the set looked cool and Im really in to Celebrity stuff so I thought it would be cool to try these out. Boy was I happy I did :) Pack one yielded a Movie Poster materials card of A costume worn by Vivien leigh in "A Streetcar Named Desire" numbered 58/500. Pretty epic. I was already freaking out about this because I LOVE Streetcar when i opened the second pack, which held a Proof Relic numbered 58(again) out of 100 of Tracy Lawrence. Pretty nice for 2 bucks.
These two cards are for trade, although the Leigh is HTG. Im up for trading for other cards in the set if you have any. I know some blogger (I don't recall who) has a wife that collects this stuff, if you know, let me know so I can shoot them an email.

Also up for any sort of trading, you know what I collect. Shoot me an email!

Jose! Jose Jose Jose!

I feel like I'm the only person who has ever heard of Jose Altuve. But yesterday, He accomplished something that I hope will make him more well known among Astros fans. Jose completed a leadoff inside the park home run, the first home run of his career. I actually have collected him since early this season and amassed a great collection of... two cards. So make me some trades for some more :D Anyway, thats all for now, remember to sign up for my contest!

Well, That was quick. CONTEST!

I was in the 4900's and expected it to take a day or two to get to 5000 page views. It took about 3 minutes. Anyway, Im having a contest. Leave a comment telling me what your best ccard in your collection is and why. Pimping will get you another entry. I will random everything next Wednesday night. There will be 5 winners. The Prize? Ill let ya know in a couple days. For now, get entering!

PS: Keep on the look out. There will be extra entry oppurtunities posted throughout the next couple days.

Cam Out

If you look to your right..

You will see that my blog views are nearing 5000. Be on the lookout for a contest in the near future. Also if you noticed, I did not mention the stupidity of Ed Wade. I didnt mention how getting rid of Pence AND Bourn was a dumb move. I didn't mention that it was dumb to send Chris Johnson, Brett Wallace, and JA Happ to the minors. THIS picture doesnt work for me.

I better go before I scream.

Question of the Day

I'm an OCDish guy. Everything has to be sorted and in it's place. My cards used to be sorted by this "System"
Player (All Sports, Alphabetical by Last Name)
However, I got bugged looking for baseball cards and having hockey mixed in. Then, I went sorting by sports. All the baseball in the same boxes, all the football in others, etc. This again, made me angry. What if I was trading and needed to find a certain player? I would have to go through 8 5000 count boxes to find 2 or 3 cards of some Erubiel Durazo-esque player. Then I went by sets. I found it fun to see all the same cards together, but I had the same problem before. What about the player collectors? So I finally came up with the following "system"
Sort by sport. (Say it 5 times fast :D )
When all sorted by sport, sort by team.
When sorted by sport and team, sort by player.
When sorted by sport, team, and player, sort by year.
When sorted by sport, team, player, and year, sort by set.
When sorted by sport, team, player, year, and set, go in numerical order.

I still have doubts on if my system works. So the question is...
How do you sort your cards?

Bigger and Better game! PLEASE READ I NEED YOUR HELP Ever hear this story? This man traded a paperclip for a pen, a pen for a doorknob, a door knob for a grill, and so on until he had a HOUSE! I decided to try this game of trading with cards. I've never had a 1 of 1 card in my life. So, I am going to go the "One Red Paperclip" Route. I am starting with one 2010 Bowman Platinum #22 Alfonzo Soriano card. Interested in it? Trade me a card that is slightly better than this (A low end rookie, perhaps?) I dont even need to collect it because I am going to trade it. Let me know, please!

Wax busting here at the Bullpen

Hey there everyone. I can't scan today as I'm on a tight schedule, but today I ran by Target to look for some Heritage. No dice. However, the value pack box was on steriods. They had Ginter, Goodwin, Heritage, Bowman,etc. I grabbed 13 packs. I got a 2009 Topps Heritage Chrome of Felix Hernandez /1960. I also got a Blue Parallel of Alexi Ramirez /2011 out of the new Opening Day. The great stuff was in the pack of 2005 UD All Star Classics. In that pack, I got rookies of Jake Peavy and Tadhito Iguchi. I also got a hit, a GU of Frank Thomas. Nice hit from a future HOFer is always welcome. As I was on the way home, I saw my LCS. I hadn't been there in almost a month and I thought 'What the Heck' and grabbed a box of 2008 UD Masterpieces. This was my 3rd box of it. Out of here, I got within 5 cards of my Masterpieces set. My hits were... A green parallel /75 of Felix Hernandez. A GU of Cole Hamels. and my 6th auto of the set in Bill Hall. A current Astro is always nice. If you are a fan of King Felix , you should email me as those cards are for trade along with almost everything else.
Sorry for the lack of posting, I've been busy with school testing and stuff. I will be back to daily posting by Opening Day. That's all for now.

I guess I'll join the fun!

Hey guys. I recently fell in love with these nice little cards called Diamond Parallels. I have a grand total of....1. Ryan Kalish. 2011 Topps hasn't been good to me. (Except for the huge Berra relic /60 with over 1 in a thousand odds, but thats a post for the future. ) Anyway, I know there are tons of people collecting them, but I'll make it worth your while. I got some other bait goodness burning a hole in my pocket. So anyway, shoot me some emails if you have any non-Kalish parallels. Seriously. I want to trade. I have some good posts coming up including the recent Dave and Adams purchase. See ya!

Mail Day! Clear Cut Cards Edition

Hey guys. I have been getting tons of packages in the mail, so if you have done a trade with me, I'll have a Mail Day post for you within a week.

Anyway, Jason over at Clear Cut Cards made a post a couple weeks back about his Mets team set needs for Chicle, so because I recently busted a box of that stuff, I had one of the cards he needed. So after so negotiations, I ended up sending a Jason Bay Chicle and 10 other 2010 Mets cards. In return, I got rookies of two no name Astros and, the one I wanted most.

This is a rookie of awesome fielder Edwin Maysonet. He made it up with the Astros last year to play some infield as a backup. I was extremely impressed with what I saw. Sadly, my least favorite team the Brewers picked him up in the offseason. I'm still excited to have a card of him from his days with the Astros. Thanks for the trade Jason, and if any of you would like to trade with me, email me. Thanks!

Hey everyone. After a couple hours of opening and sorting the cards, I found the winners of the contest!

My best hit of the Year! What's yours?

Hey everyone. Cam here. My parents got me a hobby box of 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces for Christmas, and the results were great! Ill just highlight the big hit. The pack started out like normal, with this:

But then, as I started to pass that card aside, I noticed that the game used was the next card. I also noticed it was one full card. A two card pack. The Beltran was slid aside to reveal...

The best card I've ever pulled. A Hanley Ramirez multicolor patch 20/25! I was ecstatic! This is my first patch. and the lowest numbered card I've ever pulled out of a pack. So the question is....
What's the best card you pulled in 2010? Let me know!

Does anyone else keep getting offered this card?

I know Topps Million is great, but I get online to the site and have 10 offers all from different people featuring this card.

A 2001 Topps Ivan Rodriguez. Why does everyone have this card and insist on trying to trade it for 1960's vintage? It isn't going to happen. Does anyone know why everyone has this card? Tomorrow I'll post showing my Christmas loot, and it includes the best hit of my year!

Who I am

Hello Everyone! This is Cam, formerly the owner of Collectable Cards. I started this blog because of lack of viewers, and Yola, the site I used to blog, sucked. Here is a little about me.

Who I collect: I am a huge collector of Hunter Pence, Michael Bourn, JR Towles, Carlos Lee, and Nick Markakis, along with any Astros. I also have side collections of Joe Mauer, Evan Longoria, Derek Jeter, BJ Upton, and Ian Desmond. I also collect cards featuring players signing autographs in the photo, Celebrating, and players in odd places.

What I enjoy: I enjoy trading and meeting new people through blogging.

What I enjoy outside of sports: I love music. I play the guitar, and my favorite band is the Beatles. I also enjoy swimming, and playing video games.

If you want to trade, be on my blogroll, or just want to talk email me! I have tons of things for trade, hopefully I will post them later.
