Birthday Cards From A Different Year

Ever since I’ve found my way back into collecting, I’ve tried to treat myself to some sort of cardboard birthday present. Sometimes it’s through boxes of cards, but the past couple years, I’ve gone on a single buying splurge on COMC.

This year, I don’t know if I’m going to buy anything. I still collect […]

Give Me A Moment – Pt. 2

I might be taking quite a few moments. Because there are so many, I actively hunt these cards out and have amassed a decent amount. This particular grouping is part of a large lot from 2011 that helped kick off this adventure. It contained 40 different cards and I’m positive I paid quite a bit […]

Time Sensitive Releases and the Future of Collecting

Still Undeserved

A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]

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.
