Joe Rock – Tackling the 2000 SP Authentic Football Set
Tom Brady has been in the headlines his entire career, but lately it has been more than ever. From winning his record 5th Super Bowl to his stolen jerseys, Brady remains in the spotlight at an age when most players are riding off into the sunset or already long retired. In the following article, we take a look at one of many sets that he anchors – the 2000 SP Authentic football card issue.

Collecting the Tough but Colorful 1935 Goudey 4-in-1 Baseball Card Set (R321) – An Unheralded, Vintage Baseball Issue
When most collectors think "Goudey," they often conjure images of the classic 1933, 1934, or 1938 sets. The designs were striking and, in some cases, different. The 1935 Goudey set, where the collector receives four players for the price of one, is often overlooked. The condition-sensitive nature of the cards ensures the kind of challenge that most collectors avoid. In the next piece, we delve further into an issue stacked with Hall of Famers.

Collecting the 1949 Bowman Wild West Set – Taming a Classic Non-Sports Issue
In the non-sports trading card world, the variety of genres is tremendous. The theme of the Wild West is one that appears in numerous vintage releases, but perhaps no issue can compete with the sheer visual appeal and size of the 1949 Bowman Wild West set. At a whopping 180 total cards, a very large number for the period, this classic non-sports issue with stunning artwork has few peers.
