[The fourteenth in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]
The mind is a funny thing. I love my mind and take pride in my level of competence and ability to learn quickly.
However, the mind is also a disappointing thing, and an unreliable thing. I’ve quickly learned that I can’t rely on the short-term memory side of my brain.
That’s why I prepared for […]
You know, I can’t really explain it, but I have a little obsession with Moments & Milestones. The same goes for most of those stupid gimmicky sets that the majority of collectors seem to hate. From a player collector standpoint, they are certainly annoying, but I can’t help but enjoy the extra mini-quest of it.
Welcome to the second to last part of my initial Check Out My Cards purchase. If you’re just joining us, you can find the other parts of the countdown here, here, and here.
I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which will be split into […]

This blog used to be cooler, and more interesting. We would have various different ideas for blog posts to hopefully keep the readers engaged. Or at least I thought we did. We also used to be a we. I think it’s safe to say that Andy is retired from the blog. But that’s not what […]
The experience of going to the National will really prepare and inform future expectations of the show. Before going in, I had this weird mind set that basically anything would be available for the picking if you just looked in the right spot.

Hey, remember how I still have a bunch of 18 month old trades to post? I do. The great Nachos Grande sent me some stuff a long time ago in exchange for some of the Topps online die cut thingies. The dude loves to trade, and he’s a great trade partner. You should all help […]
