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 […]

Maddux Overload – 1998 Edition

1998.

The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.
