* FBI: 70% of Autographs Sold On-Line Are Fake
So, there's this news video floating around about how a reporter was able to dupe a major autograph authentication company by switching a real auto with a fake one at a live autograph signing. This story really has some collectors upset, as it should. However, we thought that the folks over on the Beckett behind the scenes blog brought up some reasonable explanations for this serious goof.

Here's a good story about a baseball card shop owner who is not only doing well with one shop, but has recently opened a second. His success is due in part to his ability to realize he needed to diversify and evolve in order to keep the doors open. We know of several former shop owners who would never do what this guy has done. Here's a relevant quote from the article: "Baseball cards are what got him into it in the first place, but it's been the steady additions along the way that have helped keep him in business."

Beckett is staying tight-lipped about the "fun changes" they have in the works for their web site. They have disclosed on their beckett behind the scenes blog that it will be in March 2008. They also are making some changes to their magazines as well. It's a big deal to change your web site and takes a lot of guts to do it. Speaking from experience, when you change your web site you can bet some people will absolutely hate whatever change that they make (some of us just don't take kindly to changes). On the other hand, we're excited that there are key sites out there like Beckett who are not afraid to push the envelope and help grow the Internet side of the hobby even more.

We're excited about Beckett right now. They've been giving us little teases here and there about their web site and how it's going to be changing into a more web 2.0 type of site. This is clearly reflected in their new Beckett behind the scenes blog (which we love) Good job Beckett! You're inspiring us to possibly finally bite-the-bullet and get our own blog rolling. We look forward to those big changes on your site!

Have you seen the Beckett box break of the new SportsKings trading card set? We've seen several box breaks across the Internet and overall people seem really excited about this stuff (and for good reason). The intro to this particular Beckett box break is pretty funny too. Interesting how Beckett has gone with Vimeo for their video uploading instead of Youtube, looks like a nice clean interactive video format.
