That is a fabulous time wasting question. What is the #1 pick for this worth roughly?

I know that I was just in a 2011 break where the Number 1 is worth more than 15-Infinity combined, I bet those offers were absurd.

More depressing when you have so many picks ... you just have to accept your going to see yourself a ton on the way up the ladder.

But fun all the same!

Next topic as I move to opening eBay mail.

Am I the only person who automatically assumes whoever I bought whatever from is a digusting hoarder?

I instantly pull the card out of however it is packaged, resleeve, top load and team bag it no matter what condition the existing protection was in.

Bingo.

Every card I receive worthy of protection, gets my protection. That includes anything you send Dave.

No offense ... but I sleep better at night knowing my cards have my penny sleeves, my top loaders and my properly sized team bags.

On that note / I wish to murder people that use tape to close their top loaders. And those that use impossible table to peel off, for which I need to either use a knife, or cut the top loader with a pair of Cutco scissors altogether ... torture than murder.

I use impossible to cut off tape on top loaders at my LCS because some dirtbags were swapping out 25 cent refractors into $3 cases and stealing cards that were already under priced. No card in my home has tape of any kind on any part of it.

I don't care it doesn't bother me, I'll just start using the most yellowed, smoke smelling top loaders for you is all.

I always use tape on oversized cards, but I always leave a "pull tab." I could give 2 sh*ts less if the buyer hates tape. I know that by taping the top, the card is not going to slip out no matter what.

I will say ... I save some of other peoples loaders and stuff (one touch always) and just reuse them to ship stuff out every so often. Kind of like the scrap box at my 5th grade art class.

As for the tape in my card collecting career ... just today I had a Zunino green Ink Elite auto delivered and the entire top loader was taped up. I mean ... I could have spent hours trying to un-tape this thing. Packing tape, scotch tape, masking tape even and I just couldn't get the crap off.

Normally I just grab the scissors and cut the top of the loader, but I couldn't find them ... so I grabbed a knife.

For the first time, I let the knife go too far in trying to make the inciscion on the tape and I dinged the top of the card. I was SO angry ... I got up from my office chair, went outside, grabbed a shovel and just started pounding on the ice/snow we have outside as much as possible.

Came back inside, and removed the Zunino Green Ink /10 Elite auto from my upcoming BGS submission.

I HATE TAPE

oh no... that is always my worst fear. I do hate when a person tapes the whole top forcing you to use a sharp object to get the card out.

Who keeps their worthless redeemed Topps cards because they are positive the minute they throw them out, the clowns at Topps will lose their entire database or something and you will miss out on a Simon Castro base auto from 2010 Bowman Chrome?

Please ... no Topps redemptions chatter. It's depressing. I fear my used redemption cards are actually worth more than the cards I'm never getting.

Ohhh no!

I'd tape your Rutledge Purple auto after it gets slabbed in retaliation ... but that would do me no good!

Understood, I will move on quickly.

Has anyone else ever wanted to actually fight Tom Millone for ruining countless perfectly good boxes of cards?

Not sure it is wise to post your actual redeemed codes with all the shady scum bags on these boards. Topps is not bright enough to fend off a scam.

Same as selling a redeemed Card, which irritatingly sell! Topps is very aware these are mine ... don't you worry

Sorry bud, we're all full here. Hanging out waiting for a random hat looks more and more like it's happening tomorrow.

New PhotoBucket is so annoying, I can no longer sort by name? Now it is also not allowing me to drag and drop inside the organize function. Soon there will be anarchy in my PC's.

I tried to get the Chapman collection in there ... but it's just not working for me. I sort by serial number on certain sets / and these guys just don't let you drag in order.

A shame. His first start is Feb 28th against Colorado / I'll run the same promotion I did for Cingrani. K's the side and free Chapman chrome autos!

Trying to get people to watch these two kids ...
