2017 NSCC #9 – I’m Still Dumb

A couple years ago, I outlined how terrible my memory is by showing cards I bought at the NSCC that I already owned (or that accidentally bought twice at the show). Well, it happened again. This time, it was on a larger scale since I had a bigger budget.

Still no real excuse for a […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 2 of 2

Welcome to part two of the July card auction explosion. I hope everyone enjoyed the first part. If you missed it, check out the link, because it was full of fun stuff including a rip card (spoiler!)

I’m going to keep the party going here and start off with another big card and end with […]

May 2018 Ebay Wins

After the massive month that was April, I had to take things a little easier. Aside from ebay, I also went on a huge tax money fueled binge on COMC and used a portion of my Sportlots credit I’ve built up over several years to buy stuff. So, a lot of time also was spent […]

April 2018 Ebay Wins

In my March post, I mentioned how that month has been historically difficult for me due to work concerns. That’s the big deadline we work toward each year, and it becomes an all-hands on deck, don’t plan anything during nights and weekends affair.

April, on the other hand, is a lot more free. For me […]

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 […]

2017 NSCC #5 – An Elite Card Show

The National is easily the best card show I’ve ever had the privilege to attend. I know not everyone has the opportunity, but if you can arrange it, please do yourself a favor. There are so many vendors there that are simply looking to liquidate everything that they have, and there’s so much to look […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 2

Welcome back! Here we are at part 2 of what I think should be a three-part series, showcasing the goods I acquired from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout. Part 1 is available to you right here. That time, I shared the Maddux and Thomas cards from the trade. Today will be all of the Gwynns and […]

2017 NSCC #2 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Wood and Gwynn Edition

Back again with some more dimebox finds. If you missed the first part of this adventure, go ahead and read up on it here. These ten cent treasures were kind to me. It was interesting to see what kind of random stuff was in there. It had the appearance of a closeout sale from a […]

2017 NSCC #1 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Thomas and Maddux Edition

The National Sports Collector’s Convention was held in Chicago several months ago, and it was the second one I was lucky enough to attend. My rookie year on 2015 was quite the adventure. I bought a lot of cards and was able to write about a small percentage of them. Thanks to a better financial […]

Opening Day

The day is finally upon us. Baseball season has started. Everything rides on this one game. Start 0-1 and the season is doomed. Win this one, and you’re going to win them all.

The Cubs versus Marlins match-up today has already happened, but I’m writing this in advance so I don’t know the result. I’ll […]
