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 […]

It’s Your Choice

I voted on Sunday.

Please consult your election volunteers for instructions

I don’t get political on this blog (or in public forums) for several reasons, but that doesn’t mean I’m not a political person. I am, and I do tend to agree with one side more often than another. I’m registered to vote as […]

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 […]

Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.

First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.

The kid […]

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

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.

2015 NSCC #1 – Figuring Things Out

Yay! It’s about time I start talking about the National Sports Collector’s Convention, right? Sorry for the delay everyone. There will be a lot to go through over the weeks and months. Yes, months. That’s what’s bound to happen with my schedule and when you buy hundreds of cards and several boxes in a single […]

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 […]

People Still Make Trade Posts, Right?

One of the side effects of being away from the blog for over a year is that when you go back to trade posts, you completely forget what the trade was or what you sent.

That’s just a side effect. I don’t really care what I sent over. If the cards were that important to […]

Cards Upon Cards From Cards On Cards

I moved into my house about 8 months ago. At that time, there were a few people looking to send packages my way, but I wanted to wait until I got things semi-unpacked and I settled down.

Then I learned there was no such thing and let a couple know they could send away.

Madding […]
