2009 Topps Tribute Ruth & Robinson Cuts Pulled

The funny part of the story is that the cards were pulled in the same shop in Dallas, by two different collectors, on the same day.

Nick's Sports Cards in Dallas ordered 3 cases of 2009 Topps Tribute baseball, and the two best cut signature cards in the set were in 2 of them. The Babe Ruth Cut, and a Jackie Robinson Cut. Be sure to read the entire story here at Dallas News.

Chris Olds, editor of Dallas-based Beckett Baseball, considered a leading guide to the sport's collectibles, agrees: "It's pretty outrageous."

    Early Look 2010 Press Pass Football

    2010 Press Pass Football is set to release on March 31, 2010. There are 28 Packs per box and 4 Cards per pack. There are at least 5 Autograph Cards in each box including chances at Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, Jimmy Claussen and many more.

    The 2010 NFL Combine is February 24 – March 2 and by the time this product comes out most will have had the work-out hype train in full gear. With several top QB's in this years draft who all have large followings carrying over from college, the 2010 Football Card season should be an exciting one.

    Tristar & Kurt Warner to do Private Signing

    Recently retired Arizona Cardinals Kurt Warner is already settling into his post-retirement mode by agreeing to a private with the TriStar Company in March 2010

    It is a Mail-In program where you can either buy items that TriStar Supplies or Mail-In your own...either way it gives you a chance to get an authentic signed piece from an athlete that hasn't signed much over the years.

    If you mail in your football, Kurt will sign it for $99.

    See the full item list at Tri-Star here.

    White Sox Cards takes a look at a 1993 Score Select Rookie/Traded #3T - Tim Belcher.

    Rob over at VOTC reminisces about one of his favorite former players Matt Shuey.

    MLBPA Vice President of Business Public Relations responded to Upper Deck's usage of logos on trading cards made after 1/1/10. It's an interesting read over at Field Level View

    More good Upper Deck legal problems being discussed over in this thread at the Freedom Card Board forum. FCB is on a mission to uncover just how much UD will have to fork over to Konami in the recently settled counterfeit Yu-Gi-Oh lawsuit. 

    Tim Alderson - Pirates Prospect - Online Chat

    As a Giants fan, I sometimes cringe at the trade that sent 2007 1st Round Pink Tim Alderson to the Pirates, for oft-injured 2B Freddy Sanchez.  Tim did a chat with fans today for Baseball America. Here is a question he got about signing autographs.

    Charlie (Charlestown): I like to collect autographed baseball cards, so I was wondering how long does it take to sign all the cards you're featured on?
    Tim Alderson: It takes a long but I enjoy doing it. It's something that I think is important, I want to do, and is an honor. 

    Here is a complete checklist of Alderson Rookie Cards

    2010 Topps Allen & Ginter News?

    Topps has been doing a fantastic job this year putting out product previews and information for their 2010 baseball products.  Even products that are months away from being released are getting attention.  

    The heated discussion about 2010 Topps National Chicle lit up the popular card blogs across the web, even though the set isn't slated for release until late April 2010. In an email from a Topps Marketing Official though, a short "not yet" was the response to Sports Card Report's request for any information regarding the highly anticipated 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball set.

    Sports Card Report will continue to hound Topps for any word on 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter. 

    Canada Buzzing About UD Hockey Card Day

    Tomorrow is National Hockey Card Day, and Upper Deck has produced a 15 card set to be distributed around stores in Canada.

    Backmandy Collectibles located in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island is gearing up for the 2nd year of Upper Deck's promotion.

    The 15-card set consists of some of the top Canadian-born rookies, current stars and legends with a special National Hockey Card Day logo-stamp adorning each card front.
    In addition, the card backs will be printed in both English and French. The five rookies featured include John Tavares, Matt Duchene, Jamie Benn, Evander Kane and Logan Couture. The Pride of Canada active stars include Sidney Crosby, Vincent Lecavalier, Martin Brodeur, Mike Richards and Rick Nash.

    2009 Playoff National Treasures Football Rookie Card Prices

    2009 Playoff National Treasures Football went live over at Blowoutcards this week and the Autograph Patch Rookie Cards #/99 are already hitting the single card market.

    2009 Mark Sanchez National Treasures Rookies have been popping up on eBay. It appears that most are in the $200+ range as they move toward ending stage. Sanchez took the Jets on an incredible run that ended just short in the AFC Championship. We'll see how much confidence collectors have in Mark Sanchez to repeat his great performance in 2010.

    One of the biggest deals I saw was Shonn Greene. To me that seems like a great deal for a rookie running back that had a great back-end of 2009 that helped the Jets win games. You can see current Shonn Greene 2009 Treasures Rookies at auction now and most are at modest prices.

    Matthew Stafford cards are getting big time money for a guy that threw a boat load of balls to the other team in 2009. A few copies of his 2009 Playoff National Treasures Patch/Auto RC have sold in the low $200 range. There aren't many at auction but you can see what they are selling for here.

    I was also surprised by the prices for a Donald Brown 09 National Treasures Rookie. Hey, in a week this guy will be playing in the Super Bowl! Looks like you can get one of these cards for less than $100 on eBay and that may be a great steal depending on what happens in next weeks Super Bowl (Just make sure the seller ships the card before the game)

    Thankful His Mom Didn't Throw His Cards Away.

    Jeff Figler of the St. Louis Today, is going to be running a colum about collecting sports memorabilia.  Be sure to check back for updates.

    In his piece today, Figler gives thanks to his mother who didn't throw away the cards he had when he was a kid.

    Card Shop Owner Living The High Life Thanks To MillerCoors

    A small baseball card store in Chicago is getting the promotion of a lifetime thanks to the MillerCoors company.

    Tim's Baseball Card Shop will be one of  four small businesses featured in a Miller High Life Super Bowl commercial.

    “Tim is going to need his whole family to help him deal with the business after this because he is going to be inundated,” says Herb Ritchell, a marketing professor at Loyola University. “This is also an innovative approach for the brand, and really gets at its goal of being a beer for the everyman.”

    Upper Deck Pays Off Konami

    The civil damages trail pitting Konami v. Upper Deck was supposed to begin Tuesday, but was canceled because the two parties have reached a settlement in the case.

    No $$$$ amount has been reported.

    The terms of the settlement are confidential. Konami had indicated it would ask the jury for "hundreds of millions of dollars" in damages. Upper Deck's first payment to Konami is due Friday. Its last is due March 31.

    Sports Collectors Daily gets the nod on the scoop. Here is our first write up on the story from Jan. 12.

    Collectible Business Flying High In Chicago

    Some interesting hobby quotes cam out of the Jan. 15-17 Cubs Convention in downtown Chicago. Be sure to read the article by George Castle that appeared in the Wallet Pop blog.

    Chicago's Mike Gomez, who runs a collectibles business that bears his name, has been operating for a quarter-century, just like the Cubs Convention. He has manned his booth at the convention for at least 12 years.

    "I've come down on my prices a little bit to aid the economy," Gomez said of a typical 10 percent cut. "But it hasn't had that big of an effect on the memorabilia business as people would think. I believed September 11 would hurt it, too, but it held up through that."

    Twins Pitcher Will Trade His Autograph For Your Cards

    Minnesota Twins Pitcher Pat Neshek has a great interview that appeared in the The Minnesota Star Tribune blog. Anyone interested in trading cards with Neshek should check out his website neshek.com.

    "The whole trading idea started in 2005. I was never on a prospect list thus the card companies refused to make baseball cards of me. The only cards I got were ones put out by the minor league team I was on. Each day I would get letters from people having me sign pieces of paper saying that they wished they had my card. I decided to write to the card company and they agreed to sell me a ton of my cards. Now that I had cards of myself I told people if they ever needed a signed card of me to send me a card of anyone that played baseball or hockey. Currently I have 9 binders filled with trades from the past couple years."

    Lawsuit Could Cause Financial Disaster At Upper Deck

    A lawsuit that stems over Upper Deck making fake Yu-Gi-Oh cards is about to be decided and the results could cripple the company. One has to think that loosing the Baseball and Basketball license, Tiger Woods image falling off a cliff and now a pending multi-million dollar lawsuit Upper Decks financial status may not be spectacular. On top of that, the country is climbing out of a recession that has hurt all businesses, including Upper Deck.

    "This could be the end of Upper Deck," said Joshua Leland Evans, chairman of memorabilia shop Leland's Auction House in Bohemia, NY. "I'm not sure they can survive this. We are hearing big rumors of financial trouble at Upper Deck. It could only be a matter of time before they go out of business."

    Who knows if the financial rumors are true, but if UD looses this one...better hope your redemptions are redeemed before they have to send the check to Konami.
