Big Thanks to A Cardboard Problem

Posted in Newspaperman with tags , , , on April 14, 2010 by Cardboard Icons

As some of you know, I’ve been working on a project for more than a year called the “Topps Number Ones.” And wouldn’t you know it, I ‘ve had the toughest time getting a copy of the 2010 Topps card featuring Prince Fielder and his bowling ball impression. Another blogger, Field Level View, said I have on coming from him some time soon, but in the meantime I received this one from A Cardboard Problem. I can’t tell you how many packs of 2010 Topps cards I’ve opened without getting this damn card. Thanks to both bloggers for their generosity.

I (Heart) sticker ‘graphs! (Shoutout to FieldLevelView)

Just a quick shoutout to Field Level View for a pair of giveaway items I received today. He recently busted on video and reviewed two products that were provided to him by their respective companies. Those products being 2009 Tri-Star Prospects Plus and 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars. Jason, the blogger, managed to pull probably the best autograph possible out of the Prospects Plus box, an emerald parallel Dustin Ackley signature numbered to just 25 copies, and then a very solid Prince Fielder autograph from his Signature Stars box.  Both are going into my PC. Jason only collects Houston teams (Astros and Texans) and a few other players like Nolan Ryan, so just about everything else he has been given by companies for review is up for grabs. Check out Field Level View for more giveaways. And just make sure you follow the rules that he has posted, they’re pretty simple, but must be followed.
