At long last, here's the moment you all (at least some of you) have been waiting for. As promised, a rack pack of 87 D-Russ in all of it's vintage glory. Let's see what we get...

Halloween Extravaganza - 1988 Topps Football

When I think of Halloween, two things come immediately to mind: silly costumes and 1988 Topps Football cello packs. Therefore, it is my great pleasure to bring you a little of both. On a side note, I usually record my videos in one long take... But not this one. With that being said, I figured why not take some of the "unused" footage and throw it together at the end?

Let me know what you think!

1993 Topps Baseball Series 1

Here's a cello pack of 93 Topps baseball series 1. Let's see if our luck continues and we pull another Jeata.

1982 Topps Baseball

Got a nice little treat in the mailbox today. A 1982 Topps baseball cello pack that I won on eBay for $5.31 delivered. What a steal. Could there be a gem mint Cal Ripken, Jr. rookie lurking inside?!? 28 cards...let's find out...

2008 Topps Baseball Series 2

Picked up another jumbo of this stuff the other day and this might be the best one yet as far as pulling decent cards.

1981 Fleer vs. 1990 Donruss Baseball -- Let the fun begin!

The pulling of a 1981 Fleer Terry Crowley card reminds me of a most infamous Earl Weaver radio rant... Which rant, you ask? Well, I'll show you where to hear it, but you have to heed my WARNING:

The Thorzul Packs: 2008 Upper Deck Heroes

The last two packs Thorzul sent me are a couple that may not actually suck. I still think that the Baseball Heroes concept works best as an insert, but the Baseball Heroes product is not all that bad.

The Thorzul Packs: 2008 Topps Co-Signers

I feel sorry for the dumb schmuck who was going to pay $10 for this pack of 2008 Topps Co-Signers. I paid nothing for this steaming pile, and still feel like I got ripped off.

Actually, now that I think about it, if you paid $10 for a pack of this garbage, you are a dumb schmuck.

2008 Topps Baseball Series 2

Here's another pack of 2008 Topps baseball I bought. Enjoy.

The Thorzul Packs: 2008 Upper Deck X

When I think of "X," this is the first thing that comes to my mind:

Apparently, Upper Deck has different thoughts: A mediocre baseball card set. Besides, baseball cards and rape are two things that just don't go together.

When you watch this video of two packs of Upper Deck X, I want you to think about this: Upper Deck got rid of Fleer Ultra for this.

Just remember, we could have had another year of Fleer Ultra.

1988/1990 Pack War and Free Cards For All!

APADTV is here! Hooo-raahhh!!! And for sending a mere SASE to the address in the video, you'll receive some freebies.

So, how does 1988 Score baseball stack up against 1990 Donruss baseball? Both products are inexpensive and fun, and one heavy-hitting rookie makes an appearance during this break.

The Thorzul Packs: 2008 Bowman Chrome retail.

I bet Thorzul on the outcome of the Phillies/Brewers playoff series, and my winnings arrived today. The first pack is a retail pack of 2008 Bowman Chrome.

As many of you know, I do not get the whole concept behind Chrome. I already have Topps and Bowman, so why do I need to collect these same cards again? Anyway, this is the first pack of BowChro I've ever opened in my life. It's a retail pack which means that I only get three cards (as opposed to four in Hobby)

1992 Fleer Baseball

Here's the first three packs out of a wax box of 92 Fleer baseball I bought. Around the four minute mark I pull back to back Pro Vision cards which were an insert in 91 but in 92 Fleer made them a base subset. Enjoy.
