Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 3

Alright, the week of trade bait has been posted, please check it out if you haven’t already. It didn’t hit as hard as I would have liked, so plenty of stuff is up for grabs. I’m looking forward to doing more trades over the next couple months, and I might have to do a little […]

Losing Track of My Trades

I’ll be honest. My organizational skills have improved in the near decade after starting the blog, but it’s still not perfect. Usually when cards come my way, I’ll keep them in separate stacks for scanning so I can label them appropriately with notes about where they came from. However, sometimes too many inbounds come my […]

Decidedly Not Red Cardboard – A Trade with Red Cardboard

My goodness does time fly. There are trades initiated in November of last year that I still haven’t posted on here yet. I’m sorry to anyone else who is still waiting for their cards and thanks to show their face. I’m a work in progress. The good news for me is that this will be […]

A Warming Trade for an Annoying Cold

These past couple of days, I’ve been sick with a fun little cold, or flu (never really sure which). My wife had a friend visit us and I had to tuck away and isolate myself to avoid infecting either of them. That also meant I couldn’t join on the fun stuff they had planned. I […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 1

Last year, I wrote a multi-part trade post of an over two year old deal I made with Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout. Because of all the fun stuff that went along with my job, even after I started in April, it took me a few months to get through all 5 parts (ended in July).

A Twitter Trade Before the Storm

The dust is starting to settle after the 2017 National. It’s been about a week since it ended and I’m slowly getting organized. Work has put me severely behind and reduced my free time to an anger-inducing extent. I still have to catalog and scan hundreds of cards, so posts about the show and updated […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 2

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot of stuff. So much stuff that there will at […]

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 […]

International Museum of Surgical Science

I’ve been thinking about making this blog a little more personal, and talking not only about cards, but about various things that are happening in my life or stuff that I’ve done. I’ll still throw cards into the mix. They may not always fit the theme and may just serve as a break in segments, […]

2016 Cubs – The Third 10 Games

We’re now 60 games into the season, so I need to catch up with this little adventure of mine. This third batch of games is when all the big talk and high hopes went to a whole new level. I mean, we won 9 of 10 games, after already winning 75% of our first 20. […]
