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!

Anyone Else play APBA card game?

I do. I have since I was little. No, Not the American Power Boat Association. APBA is a sports card game. I just play the baseball version, but they have all four major sports. To read more about it, go to APBAGAMES.COM

Anyway, I have been in the process of playing a 16 team tournament based on where players were born. I had been playing for a month or so, and last night, I finished.

Question of the Day

Hey guys. Cam Here. I have noticed that every year has different sets and things that make you like certain years more than others. The question is, what is your favorite year of cards? Any sets, any specific cards, anything. I like 2007 Because there are so many Pence RC'S to chase. Let me know what you guys think.
