The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.
The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]
I know my blog activity has been sparse for the past few years and all readership has evaporated, but I do still want to keep things going here. Some of you may know that work is the biggest factor. When things get busy, I’m usually putting in 60-100 hours a week for about 6 months. […]
I voted on Sunday.

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 […]
I said I had more birthday cards from past years, and I meant it. I have a bunch of them, including a few heavy hitters that I may share soon.
Tonight, I’m going to keep it nice and simple and finish up the Greg Maddux cards I got from COMC last year. I don’t usually […]
Don Draper ain’t got nothing on the cardboard industry. Actually, the folks at Sterling Cooper, etc. etc. are much better at placing ads than card companies. Corporations will throw ads into everything. Billboards. Guerrilla Marketing. Product Placement. Promoted Content. Commercials for one product that also has other products in it.
I actually found it kind […]
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 […]
This weekend I went to a card show for the first time since attending the NSCC. It’s a monthly show down in Orland Park, which is a bit of a drive for me. I’ve never made it out to this venue, but I’ve been itching to search some bins and it’s advertised as 70 Tables […]
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 […]
A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]
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.
