A New Blog, A farewell most likely

January 9, 2011
Hello everyone. This is most likely the last post you will see on this blog. I lasted 9 months, and over 70 posts. The site that I use to blog , Yola, Is terrible compared to Blogspot. So, I now have a blog on Blogspot called the Bullpen Cardboard. thebullpencardboard.blogspot.com     Check it out and add it to your blogrolls, because this will most likely be the last you see of me on this blog. Goodbye.

Cam Out.
 

My Black Friday 4 Box Break. MOJO!

December 1, 2010
Hello All! Cam here with some boxes I broke that I got off the amazing Dave and Adams Card World when they had Black Friday deals. I had recently gotten some money, and decided it was going towards some boxes. After hours of searching the web, I decided the money would have to towards something with a guarentee of something good. I went with a retail box of 2010 Topps National Chicle because it is my favorite set of the year and I got a guarentee of one autograph and one memorabilia. Next, I ...

Who doesnt love Black Friday?

November 28, 2010
I mostly stuck to blasters and packs when it came to cards, but now Ive decided on something new. A year or so back, I opened a box of 2008 UD X. The results werent fantastic, but I still loved the rush, waiting for the hits to appear in my hands. After I opened that box, (The Hits were autos of Callix Crabbe and Jesse Carlson) I decided to go back for more. I was on a low budget, so I decided to try another box of 2008 UD X, because I heard you could pull a Griffey auto and I wanted that car...

Why?

November 22, 2010

The end of the baseball season has hit me full-on now. The loneliness of my tv screen, without baseball on, is huge. Hockey is on. It's great, but it isn't the same. I might be going to Spring Training again this year, but that's 5 months away. Someone kill the pain and make me a trade offer I can't refuse. I'm desperate. Or talk to me about baseball. Or anything. I'm lonely without America's Pastime. I've turned to gaming on Xbox Live all day. Help me.

Please.

November 12, 2010
Hello all. Back here at Collectable Cards with a Random Card of the Day post starring.......


Lou Brock!
Name:
Lou Brock
Year: 2010
Set: Topps Update
Insert?: Yes (Cards your Mom Threw Out)
Number: CMT 127
About : Sadly it isn't an Original. I would have a heart attack if I actually had one of these. I always love a card of a HOF'er, and this one is ok. I'm definately not looking forward to 2011 Topps Heritage though. This is a terrible design for a Topps set, the worst ever in my opinion. One thing ...

November 12, 2010
I promise I;ll be back starting today with everyday posts. I never posted the loot from the card show because, well, it sucked. I got a Pence card I needed, a BJ Upton game used, some random Astros, random 1961 and 1970 vintage, and a trade bait card for whoever likes Pujols. (2010 Topps Finest Blue Refractor of Pujols /299 if anyone wants to trade).

Moments and Milestones- The biggest pain for a player collector ever.

August 25, 2010
If you're like me, you collect one certain player in particular. If you're like me, you also despise Topps Moments and Milestones. Moments and Milestones has a numbered card for each hit, or each strikeout, or some notable stat for good players. These cards are then numbered to 150, 25, 10, and 1. M&M makes collecting Hunter Pence a huge pain. If I want every card of him, I'm going to need the cards for each hit he got, each numbered to 150 or less.  Hunter has over 300 cards JUST FOR THIS SE...

Me


I'm a card fanatic. Constantly online looking for the deals. I love the sound of a pack ripping open, knowing I got a hit, and hate the fact when it's a Callix Crabbe Autograph. Who is he? I have no idea. Anyway, I'm 13, and have been wanting to start a card website for a while. I finally did. If you see me, I'll be the one in the crowd listening to music and trying helplessly to find sports updates. I'm an Astros fan. I met them all at Spring Training. Except Berkman. And Oswalt. They are evil. Also, if you want your blog on my Blogroll, shoot me an email at camh44@gmail.com. Anyway, That's all for now. Bye! I collect: Astros Zach Greinke Travis Snider Ian Desmond Serial Numbered non-memorabilia cards memorabilia autographs 2008 UDX Autographs Vintage, 1975 or before.
