After an aggravatingly dry January, and several spring-like 60-degree days, winter finally came back last night.


There were intermittent snow flurries, and at one point, traffic slowed to a crawl as the snow turned into a blinding sheet. It also snowed for about an hour or so today, and was quite a lovely sight to see. And those temps — now back to a more appropriate high-20/low-30 level. Cold winter days and snow flurries all about — some of my favorite things.

But hey, this isn’t about the weather. It’s about the 2009 product …


A jumbo box of Topps S1, a box of Upper Deck S1, and what I was really looking for — a box of American Heritage. Fresh wax waiting to be ripped — definitely some of my favorite things.

The guy at my hobby source was awesome. I called this morning looking for all three, and all he had were Topps S1 hobby boxes. He said he’d save me one, and when I came to pick it up, I was surprised to see all three of these were waiting for me. Score! And to top it off, he charged me MSRP ($63) for the box of American Heritage, which is more than I can say for DACW ($95), Blowout ($75), or The Card Kid ($75). I’m VERY surprised that DACW is charging $30 more than MSRP on these boxes.

Saving that extra $30 — I figured on paying DACW’s price of $95 for a box — means I’ll be for sure buying two boxes of baseball Heritage when it comes out. Saving money — also one of my favorite things.

Strangely enough, I have no idea when I’ll be able to actually break the boxes — it’s going to be a very busy week, and then there’s Valentine’s Day this weekend. In the mean time, I bought a couple loose packs of UD S1 to satiate the pack-breaking urge until then. Too busy a week to find the time to bust wax — not a favorite thing, but a good thing nonetheless.



  1. Oooh, fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in that box of Heritage.

  2. Love your posts! I added you to our site, come check it out.
