2017 NSCC #4 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Heyward, Fowler, and Montero Edition

Here we are at the end of the dimebox glory. It’s probably no surprise that names like Bryant and Rizzo are absent from the titles. Maybe someday soon they will be, but there’s too much of a new player shine on them still. But, if Gwynn, Maddux and Thomas are in there now, with recent […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]

Collecting Milestones

I recently updated my want lists for the first time in 5 months. It was both a cathartic and discouraging process.

On-Card Disappointments (All for Sale!)

It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]

I Bought A Repack Box

There. I said it. I’m not necessarily proud of it, but we’ve all been there.

I bought this in a particularly down time in my collecting life. I was on the hunt for some new NBA Sticker hotness (find my want/trade list on my trade page) and again had come up empty. I needed to […]

A Stupid Good Trade With The Daily Dimwit

This is me trying to get caught up on trade posts a little faster before my group break officially opens (possibly later tonight!!).

Back in the day, when I opened up my “birthday” box of 2009 OPC, I was able to finagle a few trades out of you guys out there. In fact, I think […]
