Trading To Fill In Some Junk Wax Gaps – Part 2

I’m working on getting another round of trade packages out in the mail from my latest week of trade bait posts. I think I only gained one completely new trade partner in that cycle, but ultimately found more success. That means with several new mailers incoming, I need to work to catch up on the […]

No Trade Deadline Here

The MLB trading deadline has come and gone. Rosters have been expanded for a few weeks and we’re in the waning days of the regular season. But just because the actual teams can’t swap players doesn’t mean that collectors can’t swap cards of those players. There are no deadlines in hobbies. Occasionally there are temporary […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 8 of 8

The time has come to end this saga. I started showing off this trade in September 2017. Then work got in the way for a few months (part 2 went up in April), and I wanted to give air time to other trades along the way as well, but nearly exactly a year later the […]

Sammy Hits Another Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A couple of months ago, I showcased a trade with CubsFanStan where I sent him a few Sammy Sosa cards I had up on Sportlots and he gave me an assortment of good stuff.

Fast forward a little bit and Stan was opening packs on twitter, and a couple things peaked my interest. Not too […]

Trading To Fill In Some Junk Wax Gaps – Part 1

While I didn’t get a massive response to my trade bait posts (I do want to try again soon), I did come out of it with some success. I was also lucky enough to meet a couple new trade partners.

Of of those was John, known on the Trading Card Database as herkojerko (here’s his […]

Trade Package To Be Named Later

With all the crazy MLB trade activity going on in July and August, you hear about that infamous Player to be Named Later thing. It’s a very common tactic among clubs to say that they’ll test drive the main attraction for a month or two and then decide how much he’s actually worth.

Greg, otherwise […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 5

Wow, it feels like it has been forever since I’ve put up a trade post. I feel like I’m behind on everything now. That’s only because I actually am. I’ve mentioned it before, but I have a couple newer trades that are now in line for appreciation and I’m hoping I can get to doing […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 7

I have a few newer trades that came through over the past couple weeks, which is great. Pretty soon, I’m hoping to get another round of trade bait out there to see what other stuff I can catch. I have a small trip coming up, but after that I’ll hopefully put things together for both […]

LentAcular

This week Topps announced they’re doing an online only 3D version of the 2018 Topps set using lenticular technology. The packout and price are bit too much for my liking (8 cards for $20 for a 100 card set with inserts), but it’s neat nonetheless. That got me wanting to look at a few of […]

Two Twitter Trades In One

I normally don’t do this, but I’m going to cover two trades in one post. I apologize in advance if either trader is disappointed in sharing the spotlight.

Twitter is becoming a more critical piece of my collecting experience. Most bloggers are on there, and I’m slowly building up the list of people I’m following. […]
