Taking My Hacks: Baseball – Will Changes to the Game Impact the Hobby?
Do changes in the way Major League Baseball is played affect trends in the hobby? It is an interesting concept and one that is not often discussed. Joe Orlando steps up to the plate and "takes his hacks" on this very subject.

Set Registry Starter Kit: Vladimir Guerrero
He was a wild swinger and a bad ball hitter that still ended up with 449 career home runs and a plaque in the Hall of Fame. Vladimir Guerrero is a legend of the last quarter century and has a surprisingly affordable rookie card set. SMR details what is needed for this PSA Set Registry challenge.

What Are My Mickey Mantle Cards Worth?
If you were to invest $25,000 in baseball cards today, what area of the hobby would you target?
  1. Pre-1980 rookie cards
  2. Post-1980 rookie cards
  3. Pre-1980 HOF/star non-rookie cards
  4. Unopened material
  5. Rare regional issues
