I’m back with what I hope will be a regular series. Did you miss the other installments? Well, you can either scroll down a couple posts or check out the “Trade Bait” link at the top of the blog. There’s a 1/1, some other low numbered parallels and a few good autos among others in [...]
I guess birthday’s aren’t all that bad. As if my earlier post wasn’t proof enough, this year I got cold, hard cash. Cash that I used to by a few boxes of cards and a small smattering of singles.
Sure, I considered using the sudden windfall for a single spree, but I figured this would [...]
I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]
Before my finances got all out of whack and I had a steady stream of disposable income, I was able to take part in a couple cheap group breaks.
Now, normally, I give each of these their own post, but I’m not going to. Neither resulted in anything for my player collections anyway, so each [...]

Oh, and he [...]
The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]
Why am I so excited about college basketball? A few reasons.

2) I think the college game is simultaneously infinitely more fun and infinitely more frustrating to watch due to the raw passion and hustle and lack [...]
Let’s compare something shall we?
McDonald's was a little early with the label
Frank Thomas – Two Time MVP Award Winner
2 MVP awards means 2 pictures
Not so fast, 80s graphic!
Tony Gwynn – Zero-Time MVP Award Winner
I know these two were never in direct competition for the award, [...]
