Buybacks

 While looking through the pictures of my personal collection I came across the buyback cards that I've accumulated over the years.

I don't have many of them and they seem random to me.


Topps put a bunch of buybacks in products for their 75th anniversary.  This is a player I have never heard of but I like 1959 Topps so I'm happy to have this.


This card I got out of a hobby box of 2008 Topps Heritage.  It fits in my PC perfectly as it is a Brave and I have a small collection of 1950's Crandall cards.


Another Topps 75 buyback.  I have a regular copy of this card as part of my 1976 set build.  Maybe I should start looking for more 1976 buybacks.


A 1984 Topps Paul Householder?  Rediscover Topps?  Why?!?!


The final buyback comes from Bowman as part of the 70th anniversary.  At least this card is of a future Hall of Famer even if it is just a common card.

Overall, I'm not a big fan of buybacks unless they are of a star player or from an older set.  I mean, a 1984 Paul Householder?  Once again, why?

  1. Lol. If you're Householder's mom or daughter... you're probably stoked they inserted him into packs again ;D

It's All About George

Welcome back everybody!
A friend of mine who asked me why I didn't restart SCAMB so I decided to take the suggestion since he is a professional writer.  I'm not saying this is great literature though.
I've been looking for topics for the relaunch and have a few in mind, but to start I wanted to highlight my number one player collection.
I've been a George Brett fan since I saw him play at Tiger Stadium in 1980.  He hit a home run and got into a brawl in the game.  I was hooked.
Like many collector's I've been going through my cards and other things during all of the extra time I've had at home and came upon two card albums.  I think they came with Topps Attax kits that I bought randomly.  They each have 26 pages so I decided to put my Brett cards in them and discuss each page in an installment.
This will be a long term series that will be interspersed with other topics as I find cards I didn't know I had or want to highlight my favorite things in my collecti…

1976 Topps Mail Day

Made another trade happen from Twitter and got 3 1976 Topps I need in exchange for a 1973 Steve Carlton.  That Carlton card documents one of the greatest pitching seasons ever.  The Phillies were 59-97 that year but Carlton was 27-10 and led the league in strikeouts. Wow!Here are the 3 lovely cards I got back in trade:
That is Reds backup catcher Bill Plummer, Cardinals SS/2B Mike Tyson, and the team card from the Oakland A's.  This was the last great Oakland team from their dynasty.  They were the 3-time defending World Champions but lost to the Red Sox in the AL Championship Series.Thank you to the Baseball Card Kid for the nice trade.Please see my 1976 Topps want list for what else I need.

My Favorite Actor

I loved the show Psych so I bought boxes of the two series they put out that covered all of the seasons.  I loved the comedy and themed shows they had.  There were many great guest stars in the series but I got a an autographed card of who I now realize is my favorite actor.
I never fail to enjoy anything I watch Anthony Anderson act in.  He played Gus' cousin Thane in a Psych episode.

As I said before, Psych had many good guest stars over their episodes.  This is another autograph I got from the same box as the Anthony Anderson.I've also gotten some nice memorabilia cards from my boxes.

A couple of months ago USA Network ran a Psych marathon which was nice to have on in the background while I worked at home.If you've never watched the show I recommend it as some comic relief during these tough times.
