I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]
Before my finances got all out of whack and I had a steady stream of disposable income, I was able to take part in a couple cheap group breaks.
Now, normally, I give each of these their own post, but I’m not going to. Neither resulted in anything for my player collections anyway, so each [...]
It’s not hard to feel like you’re moving backwards in this hobby sometimes. A new set or two gets released in rapid fire and your want lists suddenly explode, all while you’re still trying (unsuccessfully) to tread water on the last couple sets.
Blogging can be like that, too. You start to make progress with [...]
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.

If you missed it, [...]
Let the break begin! I know I’m really getting started about a week later than I initially anticipated. Also, thanks to work, I’m getting started later in the day than I anticipated. Still, I said I’d have the first box posted on Monday and, well…. close enough!
Today is all about the top box
It’s been a while since I’ve done anything card related, so what better way to jump back into things than with a good old fashioned group break.
This has been in the works for a while. I bought these boxes months and months ago. I think it’s finally time to share the wealth and bust [...]
One of the great things about trading is that you get to pad your binders will all kinds of wonderful new & old pieces of cardboard. One of the “bad” things about trading in the blog world is that they tend to come in waves, and an infrequent poster like myself falls desperately behind.
