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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The Dallas Cowboys handed the Buffalo Bills their 4th straight Super Bowl loss, earning their second consecutive win in the process.
The New York Rangers finally win a Stanley Cup after a 53-year long drought, then the NHL locked out its players.
George Foreman becomes the oldest ever heavyweight champion boxer.

Before my finances got all out of whack and I had a steady stream of disposable income, I was able to take part in a couple cheap group breaks.
Now, normally, I give each of these their own post, but I’m not going to. Neither resulted in anything for my player collections anyway, so each [...]
I’ve been kind of obsessing over my want lists lately.
It seems like each post is passive-aggressively commenting on the overwhelming amount of new cards being added to the want section while my highlighted “haves” stay put. It brings my whole average down.
Like Starlin Castro batting average down. Let’s just say that we’ve both [...]
It’s not hard to feel like you’re moving backwards in this hobby sometimes. A new set or two gets released in rapid fire and your want lists suddenly explode, all while you’re still trying (unsuccessfully) to tread water on the last couple sets.
Blogging can be like that, too. You start to make progress with [...]
