  1. The Sports Bookie -- Opening a box of 2012 Crown Royale

    Its always nice to get an added bonus when opening a box of cards. Whether its an extra autograph or relic card, or something as small as an extra base card, its part of the thrill of opening new boxes of cards.

    Thats what I encountered when opening a hobby box of 2012 Crown Royale football by Panini America. A hobby box sells in the neighborhood of $90, and Panini advertises four packs per box, with five cards to a pack.
    My bonus? The box I opened had six cards to a pack. ...

  2. The Sports Bookie -- RIP Stan Musial

    I never got to see Stan Musial play during his major-league career. I was only 6 when "The Man" retired after the 1963 season. But I did have the chance to see him at the annual Governor's Baseball dinner in Florida at the Bayfront Center in St. Petersburg in 1981.

  5. The Sports Bookie -- Will Lex Luger autobiography be the total package?

    Pro wrestling fans like Bench member Brett Blair (to name just one) probably know this already, but The Total Package is writing a book. And no matter what you believe about pro wrestling, believe this pro wrestlers are probably the best storytellers around. Books by Bret Hart, Mick Foley, Ric Flair and Terry Funk tell of stories on the road, in the ring and in the dressing room, and they are always entertaining.

    In fact, many of the stories will leave you howling with laughter. ...
