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 […]

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, […]

June 2018 Ebay Wins

June was a bad month. I don’t really want to talk about June. I was rarely home. Bad things happened. It was a mess and a dark time.

Being overseas, I didn’t want to look at stuff to buy. I didn’t want to expose my paypal to any foreign IPs, etc. So, it was a […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 4

Very shortly, I’ll stop the three package rotation of trades I’ve been carrying on lately. I need to squeeze in some new trades that are trickling in, or recently arrived. I’m hoping that the sooner I can post the newer stuff, the more likely people will be to trade with me. Probably not how it […]

2017 NSCC #6 – Sample Size Swatches

At the show, I expanded my budget a little bit. I put a little cash aside each month just for this show, which was thankfully easier due to paying off my car and credit cards a while back. That allowed me to spend more time in boxes that weren’t $1 or less, and expand my […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 3 of 3

Alright. Two months have passed since the last installment of this trade package. I really need to get better about staying up to date on these things. Anyway, as a quick recap, these are from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout. If you want to revisit part 1, it is available to you right here. Part 2 […]

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 […]

Introducing the John Lackey Collection

This is part two of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

Kerry Wood By the Numbers

Work, vacation, work, sickness, and work have kept me away from the blog for awhile again. I will never understand how many of you post so regularly. I have quite a bit to talk about soon and series to continue, new ones to start, National cards to show off, and trade bait to post. Oh, […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 5 of 5

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link. If you missed part two…here. And three. And four.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot […]
