2014 TOPPS MINI DIE-CUT MATT HARVEY Episode 7F16 of The Simpsons is a classic entry from 1991 named “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”– a title cribbed from Preston Sturges’ 1941 comedy Sullivan’s Travels, and later appropriated by the Coen brothers for their Depression-era riff on Homer’s “Odyssey.” In the episode, Homer (the Springfieldian one, not the ancient Greek) discovers through a cascading series of events that he has a long-lost half-brother.

Mets Card of the Week: 2013 Dwight Gooden

2013 TOPPS ARCHIVES DWIGHT GOODEN No one likes to be around someone out of control yet at a distance there’s almost something poetic about someone or something obliterating the boundaries of what’s possible.

Without a doubt, the equivalent in the baseball card industry was the 1972 Topps set. It marked the…

In the 1962 set, most of the team’s Topps cards are head shots without caps; most of the players…
