2017 Cubs – The Sixth 10 Games

Dang, I’m behind on this… Anyway, through the first 50 games, the Cubs managed an even 25-25 record. Over this next ten games, they continued that mediocrity and split them 5-5. It’s looking like a tough climb for the defending champs, but who knows. Nobody seems to be fully taking over the NL Central the […]

2017 Cubs – The Fifth 10 Games

I might as well keep the series going, right? I mean, it’s an excuse to show M&M cards after all. I sporadically watch the games but as I mentioned, the Russell thing bothers me so I’m less invested again. Anyway, they’ve played 40 more games after this batch. We’ll worry about that later (at least […]

2017 Cubs – The Fourth 10 Games

So, just like last year, I’ve fallen behind on these posts. Also, like last year, I’m becoming disillusioned with the Cubs in the middle of the year due to a player with an alleged domestic abuse in his history. Maybe I’ll talk about that more later, but even though I had started to collect Addison […]

2017 Cubs – The Third 10 Games

Another 10 games have passed, and the NL Central is a lot more up for grabs that most people would have assumed. Or at least not in the ways we’re currently seeing. I personally thought the Cardinals and Pirates would be threatening. Instead, we have to worry about Brewers and Reds, too. The biggest problem […]

2017 Cubs – The Second 10 Games

So, I know I said in the “first 10 games” post that I would be showing off a lot of cards from the new player collections/current Cubs, but then I had an epiphany.

I have a boat load of Moments & Milestones cards because I actively seek them out, and I’ve come across a few […]

Time Sensitive Releases and the Future of Collecting

There’s a new trend in card manufacturing, and quite frankly it scares me a little bit.

This season, Topps introduced a new product called Topps Now. This would not be a retail or hobby release, but instead an online exclusive with a very limited window. Each day, Topps would take events or milestones from the […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

Give Me A Moment

You know, I can’t really explain it, but I have a little obsession with Moments & Milestones. The same goes for most of those stupid gimmicky sets that the majority of collectors seem to hate. From a player collector standpoint, they are certainly annoying, but I can’t help but enjoy the extra mini-quest of it.

Semi-Weekly Trade Bait #6 – Moments & Milestones #6

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 […]

Semi-Weekly Trade Bait #5 – Moments & Milestones #5
