Cards Upon Cards From Cards On Cards

I moved into my house about 8 months ago. At that time, there were a few people looking to send packages my way, but I wanted to wait until I got things semi-unpacked and I settled down.

Then I learned there was no such thing and let a couple know they could send away.

Madding [...]

I Went To Baseball Games!

Yup. I went to several Cubs games this year. I actually personally bought tickets for the first time ever this past year.

Normally I only go to games when other people offer up an extra ticket, which is fine by me. But, when the Cubs give out exclusive baseball cards and they offer up a [...]

For The Greater Wood – Part 1

Second post in a row with a preamble. You may have noticed that there’s no blogroll on the side anymore. We did some wordpress updating and moved our hosting and it didn’t port over. I’m slowly working to find a good plugin to create a new blogroll, and hope to have it back up shortly.

Batting .457 – I’ll Buy That For A Dollar

Ebay can be a beautiful place sometimes. Sure, it can be the home of scam artists and price gougers, but so can virtually every marketplace. Sure, it may have single-handedly caused the devaluation of everyone’s baseball card collections, but that just means I can pick up a bunch of cards for my collection on the [...]

Congratulations, Ryan Dempster!

Hooray! The Not-Cardinals won the World Series!

You know what that means? It means another player I collect is a World Champion. That makes 3 out of 7 (although only up to 5 can potentially achieve it). Ryan Dempster pitched in only 1 game, and only 1 inning, and only gave up 1 run on [...]

Last Year’s Birthday Cards

I usually don’t advertise this type of thing on the blog, but this is my birthday weekend. I don’t advertise it, because I honestly don’t really care about my birthday. That’s not said to garner sympathy, it just stopped being important to me for whatever reason. I even sometimes forget about it.

Other people don’t [...]

It’s Not What You Think

Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.

Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and [...]

Almost There

I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]

Breaking Mad-dux

I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any cards for a while. I need to stop the unnecessary spending, cut back on my discretionary items, and focus on the material possessions I already have.

But, I broke.

I almost had to. When you come across a deal this good, you just have to dive [...]

The Calm Before The Storm

Do you feel that?

There’s a very strange look to sky and something is definitely in the air.

Yeah…. Yeah, I think it’s going to rain. I think it’s about to start raining strikeouts on this blog pretty soon.

Kid K’s to be precise.

As in through 2 separate transactions, I added over 150 Kerry [...]
