Twee-Commerce – Gwynn Edition

There are all kinds of resources for collectors to purchase cards. Well, maybe not all kinds, but several. I have that monthly series showing off my ebay wins. I recently spent a portion of my Sportlots selling credit on a boatload of cards. I do a couple COMC buying binges a year. I know there […]

A Golden Trade With Reader Nate

I love posting trade bait, because it not only helps me get rid of some of my many unwanted cards, but it gives me an odd sense of accomplishment as well. It’s a time consuming process to scan, sort and list them all. Part of that process is also making sure I have them listed […]

2018 Cubs – Fifteenth Ten Games

Sshhh! Don’t spoil the ending!

Young Lackey subbing for Quintana

Win #84 – Quintana – On this day, he went 6.2 innings, giving up only 3 hits, 0 runs, and 2 walks with 7 Ks. Jose didn’t have an amazing year, but he was better than what people gave him credit for. The ERA […]

Maddux Overload – 2000 Edition

2000.

The St. Louis Rams beat the Tennessee Titans to become NFL champions, making my college town in Southern Illinois freak out a bit.

The Los Angeles Lakers come back into the championship fold, giving Kobe his first title over the Pacers. On the WNBA side, the Houston Comets continue to dominate with their fourth […]

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 […]

More Older Birthday Cards

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 […]

2016 Cubs – The Fifth 10 Games

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 […]

My Last Long Trade Package

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 […]

Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

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 […]

2016 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I don’t know if this is going to be a regular thing or not, but I’m excited that baseball is back.

I’m more excited that the Cubs started off the season performing very well. 8 out of 10 ain’t bad. It’s actually really good. And it’s a great bonus that the other NL Central teams […]
