Years ago, collectors used all kinds of things to store their cards.
Shoeboxes. Tupperware containers. Cheese boxes. Metal filing cabinets like the ones used to keep recipe cards. Even boxes made for wristwatches.
The latter was the humble home for a collection of old Bowman cards that is entering the hobby for the first time.
No Gem Mint 10s in this well-loved container, but nevertheless a cool and unique find that held a nice little stash of 1948 Bowman rookie cards and a stack of 1950 Bowmans.
The owner recently dropped into Just Collect’s New Jersey offices unannounced and opted to sell them. Check out the story and photos.
There’s a new class action lawsuit against Topps and Panini over redemption cards, but it has nothing to do with the sometimes lengthy waits to have them filled. It’s centered on what the plaintiff says is an “illegal lottery.”
The suit’s premise is…well…different… but if you want an overview, here you go.
Collectable app users who’d prefer a desktop experience instead of just a phone app are getting their wish.
The company announced Wednesday it had rolled out a desktop beta version that will allow users of the fractional shares platform to trade, research, sort and look over the 200+ cards and memorabilia currently being traded or offered.
Collectable says a larger screen experience has topped the list of requested features by its users and the company will be building out all the features currently available on the phone app.
Who says The Joker doesn’t get any respect?
A 2015-16 National Treasures Nikola Jokic rookie autograph (Emerald #3/5) sold for $36,500 on an eBay Best Offer Wednesday.
Last week, NHL veteran Claude Giroux skated in his 1,000th game, joining Bobby Clarke as the only two Flyers to play 1,000 games with the organization. The team commemorated the milestone with a special patch and now the jerseys they wore in that 5-4 win over Nashville are on the auction block.
MeiGray is offering 25 black Flyers game jerseys with the number 28 patch on the front in an auction that runs through April 13. Giroux’s own jersey is among them.
Giroux made his NHL debut on February 19, 2008 vs the Ottawa Senators. He’s a seven-time All-Star, All-Star Game MVP, and currently is second on the Flyers’ all-time scoring list.
