2015 Topps Heritage High Number Blaster Break: Uno

Image
2015 Topps Heritage High Number baseball cards have released to retail stores and I bought a blaster on a whim. The card stock is heavier than many products so the box had some more heft to it, seems like you're getting value, right? Well, for my $20 I can't say I was thriller with the pulls, but maybe it is enough bang for the Heritage fans buck, what do I know...



Here are what the base cards look like, a couple of the RCs I pulled:

I did not pull any of the action variation cards or color swap variations. However, in my blaster I did pull three of the higher numbered SHORT PRINTS or SPs as ye may call them. Here is that trio, not too bad.


Here are the inserts I pulled, Trout and Harper are represented, as well as Gallo and then the Astros team in general:
And lastly the only other notable pull was a Heritage High Number Chrome card numbered out of /999. It is a Micah Johnson RC, also pulled the base RC of him, maybe he becomes exciting in the future and I make bank! (not ho…

SliceThePie Is A Nice Way To Earn Extra Baseball Card Cash!

Baseball card collecting can become an expensive hobby. The lottery ticket and "value" influences of it can leave some collector's disappointed when they don't have that extra couple of bucks to throw away on cardboard. If you like listening to music as a hobby though, you might be able to use a certain website to enhance not only that, but also the baseball card collecting hobby.

SLICETHEPIE  is the website of which I speak. This is a website that has you listen to at least 90 seconds of a musical track and then write a short review of said musical track in the box to one side. And they pay you for that! Granted, it is only pennies on the dollar, ranging from 7 cents sometimes up to 14 cents. It used to be they would give me 18 cents a song, but I admit that has not occurred in a while. Lately  I've been mostly getting 8-9 cents a track with some tracks hitting a bonus of 12-14. Sometimes they will have you review fashion as well, giving pictures of shirts and s…

Brandon Crawford 2015 Topps Finest Blue Auto /150

Image
My current project is a non-auto'd set that I am putting together. However, one of the cards I needed for my set was paired with a Brandon Crawford autographed card, so, I figured, why not. And thusly, I now have a 2015 Topps Finest Brandon Crawford autographed baseball card in my Tis blue serial numbered out of /150.



Super 8 and Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas Steelbook/ Metal Blu-ray

Image
I'm not into movie downloads and I don't want the future of movies to be without a physical copy!

Some stores sell "steelbook" collector's editions of movies theses days, well, they've been at it for a while, and depending on the retailer you go to the art work and design may be an "exclusive" to their establishment.

I've had plenty of steelbook movies in the past, but I picked up a copy of SUPER 8 at Target because I felt like watching it and the packaging was the coolest version of this steelbook style or as the Target package said "metal" that I have seen.

The Target Super 8, as well as SOME of their other movies, is more akin to lunchbox style with the feel and artwork. I have had some of the steelbook variations for movies, such as DRIVE from Best Buy and the flat style of creation of it, well, the artwork could actually be scratched off of the surface of the material. Anyway, blah, blah, blah I really think the Super 8 metal bl…
