Trading To Fill In Some Junk Wax Gaps – Part 2

I’m working on getting another round of trade packages out in the mail from my latest week of trade bait posts. I think I only gained one completely new trade partner in that cycle, but ultimately found more success. That means with several new mailers incoming, I need to work to catch up on the […]

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 […]

ROYGBIV – I’m Seeing Red

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

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 […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 1

Last year, I wrote a multi-part trade post of an over two year old deal I made with Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout. Because of all the fun stuff that went along with my job, even after I started in April, it took me a few months to get through all 5 parts (ended in July).

Older Birthday Cards

Every year I try to buy myself a card related birthday present. Sometimes, it’s boxes of cards so I can scratch the ripping itch. Other times, I’ve gone on a COMC binge to pick up a bunch of low cost additions. That’s what I did this year, and I went a little crazy with it […]

Maddux Overload – 1999 Edition

1999.

The Denver Broncos repeat as NFL champions, taking out the Atlanta Falcons.

The San Antonio Spurs take advantage of a Jordan-less NBA and deny the New York Knicks a championship. On the WNBA side, the Houston Comets continue to dominate with their third straight title (also over New York).

Michael Johnson set a new […]

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 […]

SPx-cial Trade

It’s not uncommon for trades to contain a bunch of cards from the same sets. If you’re a team collector, it probably happens to you all the time. Heck, my upcoming trade bait is going to be set based, so I hope I’ll be sending out a lot of those packages to you.

I’d also […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

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 […]
