A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]
The last time I did this kind of post (also the first time), it was fall of last year when I still had hopes that work wouldn’t suck my soul into the upside down. Now we’re in spring, so I can use the whole spring cleaning analogy. Hooray?
Throughout my years of collecting and blogging […]
I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.
Fall is upon us, and while the rodents are filing their cheeks getting ready for winter, I’m over here trying to get rid of some things. Hopefully soon this will translate into showing some trade bait on the blog, but for the time being I’m going to settle for cleaning up some of my collections […]
We’re at the point in this series where I legitimately can’t tell you anything about what happened during the games. Yup. Before it was just a specific decision made so I didn’t simply rehash game recaps. Now, there’s no way I would go back and research specific days. That sounds like work.
Kick some […]
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 […]
There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]
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.
