Calling All Card Detectives – A 5X7 Mystery

Okay, so as the title mentions, I need a little help. I hope you’ll bear with me to the end (or at least skip there) to see if we can crack this case. I’m not the most knowledgeable collector by any means, but I’m resourceful enough to find most cards that are tough to identify.

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 […]

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 […]

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

Undeserved

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.

Next Year(‘s Cards) Is Here

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Cubs. Even though in 2014 we finished last in the NL Central, somehow Vegas stared the year projecting us as one of the favorites to win the World Series. Granted, this team has been quite a bit better, but I think it’s possibly a tiny bit too […]

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 1 of 5)

I’m not much of a supporter of COMC. I don’t intend to ever sell on their website, because I find the fee structure to be insanely difficult to rationalize. I understand the reason for it, considering their vast infrastructure, but when a 1990 Topps common has to be sold for $0.35 (.25 of which going […]
