  • Lawnscapes

    You don't need to pour money into professional landscapers, exotic plants, and marble lawn gnomes to make your yard look tacky great: all you really need is a lawnmower. At least, that's what Lawnscapes ($10) will tell you. By following the 20 different cutting patterns and other tips found within this Astroturf-covered, 80-page primer, you can mow yourself a perfect yard — provided you haven't neglected your way to a Tatooine-like dirt mound, of course.

  • Mint Condition

    Like many of our readers, the Uncrate staff at one point had an insatiable thirst for card collecting, snatching up rookie cards of our favorite — or the most valuable — players while continuing to buy pack after pack like a chain smoker on an endless bender. Mint Condition ($17) takes a look at the history of the baseball card industry, from their early inclusion in cigarette packs to the holographic, thick-stocked special cards of today and beyond. A must-read for anyone who used to be able to tell between a Topps, Fleer, and Upper Deck card of the same player from across the room.
