Coming Out Of Hibernation
This recent uptick in work activity that has kept me from blogging has also, sadly, kept me from keeping up with my collection.  I'm terribly far behind on recent releases from Topps and Panini and crew and I have yet to collect the first cards of names lik...

Playing Catch Up

Belated Buddy
Way back in October, The Lost Collector made contact with MLB agent Joshua Kusnick.  No, TLC isn't thinking of making the jump to the Major Leagues (don't go chasin' that waterfall) - rather, the topic of conversation centered around the 1988 retrospective ...

Shake Your Bote
David Bote has been working hard to make sure that he never see Des Moines, Iowa again.  The rookie infielder has been seeing regular action at the hot corner and second base since Kris Bryant has been on and off the disabled list this summer.  Just last ni...
