Stickers From Near and Far

It took me a few months to get my act together but I’m finally posting the last/most recent packages I’ve received this year so far. I needed to buckle down and actually scan and log them, and that took me longer to do than it would a normal person. Either way, for now after this, […]

Stick and Trade, Stick and Trade Again

I love trading for stickers. These are some of the easiest transactions I ever make. Back in the heyday of the blog, I would have random parents reaching out to me to help complete their kids’ albums. That hasn’t happened in a while, but as long as progress is being made overall, I’m happy.

Easy To Remember Sticker Trade

This may end up being my last post of the year – it’s tough to find the time to write with all this holiday stuff going on. There’s also a small chance this is my last post ever. WordPress desperately wants to update my blog, and I’m sure it’s way past due. The problem is […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 1

I’ve been lucky to have several trade partners this second half of the year. That second wave of trade bait worked better than I anticipated, to the point where I didn’t feel very prepared.

Clearly I’m not all that prepared to thank everyone quickly either, but hey, it’s something to work on in 2019. That […]

Enter Sandman

Twitter is fun place for sports cards. Other things, not so much. I’m not as active on there as I might like to be, but I’m trying to get better. I’m also not very good at following people on there, so if you’re a blogger or reader and I don’t follow you, let me know […]

Suggestions to Improve the Topps MLB Sticker Album

I’ve been buying and collecting the Topps MLB sticker albums ever since their return to shelves in 2011 (but I haven’t completed one since 2012 – help me out by looking here and trading!). Usually it’s a fun diversion and a little bit of a nostalgia trip as I’m reminded of growing up in the […]

Sticking With It

I know my blog activity has been sparse for the past few years and all readership has evaporated, but I do still want to keep things going here. Some of you may know that work is the biggest factor. When things get busy, I’m usually putting in 60-100 hours a week for about 6 months. […]

Sticker Set Calling

I’m going to make this pretty short and very sweet (for me, at least). Many of my catch up trade posts have been long (and many of the trades left to post are also very large). The packages I received were filled to the brim and I now have the propensity/gumption to show every card […]

Another Album In The Books

What a difference a year makes.

What a difference trading with kids makes.

Despite knowing more people that were trying to complete the 2011 MLB sticker album, I wasn’t able to finish it off until after the 2012 book was released.

The sophomore release was a lot easier thanks in large part to the number […]

Penultimate 2012 Sticker Showcase

The Topps Sticker albums are a wonderful thing. They are the best proof that I personally have that children are still interested in collecting baseball stuff.

I know that Opening Day is supposed to be geared towards young collectors, too, but I’ve never had a parent email me asking to help his kid complete his […]
