Digital De-Cluttering – Tony Gwynn Edition

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging (over 7 years now….), I’ve either obtained a small amount of cards from one source, or I’ve posted most cards from a package but not all. That leaves a bunch of “master files” taking up space in my scan folders, waiting for inspiration to strike or a theme […]

2017 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I started to do this last year, but then gave up in July or so. I didn’t follow the team the second half of the year until the playoffs hit. However, this is a new year and the reason I stopped watching the Cubs signed with the Yankees in the off-season, so I’m more excited […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

Undeserved

I know I’ve been questioning whether or not to continue the blog, but I can unquestioningly say that I’ve been extremely lucky with the bloggers and readers I’ve “met.” It’s a great community, and I highly recommend it to people that have the time. I’m very sorry that I haven’t for a while.

Forgot to Set My Watch, Man

Look, I ain’t no Harper Lee, but it sure feels like I’ve been making Cards on Cards wait a long time for the sequel to our trade post. For a refresher, here’s the first section with the oh so clever title. That post covered my other player collections. This one will be all Gwynn all […]

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 […]

When You Can’t Buy Anything New

I’m sure all of us have been in a budget crunch situation multiple times in our lives. It’s only natural to see cash ebb as well as flow. I’m in the middle of an “ebb” cycle, and I’m expecting to stay firmly there until at least after the holidays.

That means no buying new cards. […]

I Love Collecting

My “In Defense Of” post garnered quite a bit of attention for the site. Chris Olds and Susan Lulgjuraj from Beckett, VOTC – c0-host of Cardboard Connection Radio, a couple card blogs and various twitterers all picked up on the article and helped promote and discuss the issue.

When all was said and done we […]

So We Meet A-Gwynn

We’ve been down this road before.

It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.

But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.

It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction […]
