History made in Detroit.

At least some tickets to the afternoon contest were printed and several have already been listed on eBay.
Topps NOW commemorated Cabrera’s 3000th hit with some new cards that will be available until midday Monday.
There were autographed and relic versions offered with prices starting at $179.99 but those quickly sold out.
More evidence of some pretty great raw cards that are still out there.
At the Long Island National show at Hofstra University Saturday, a jaw-dropping collection of vintage cards turned up:

Another overnight hobby shop burglary. The latest in a long series of break-ins occurred at Boomtown Sports Cards in San Antonio early Saturday morning:
A new hobby shop has opened in Green Bay with a local TV station stopping by to check out the buzz.
Jeff Roberts, promoter of the Nashville Card Show, says the three-day event planned for July July 15-17 will have 400+ tables due to the increased demand for tables. The show will take place at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
Technical issues Sunday night have caused Robert Edward auctions to extend its current auction through Monday night. Only bidders who were qualified to participate during extended bidding after 9 PM Eastern time Sunday night will be allowed to participate and they can only bid on items they had been bidding on when the auction entered that period.
