Losing Track of My Trades

I’ll be honest. My organizational skills have improved in the near decade after starting the blog, but it’s still not perfect. Usually when cards come my way, I’ll keep them in separate stacks for scanning so I can label them appropriately with notes about where they came from. However, sometimes too many inbounds come my […]

2017 NSCC #3 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Lester, Lackey, and Soler Edition

Alright, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything about the National, which isn’t good because I have a lot to cover still. The first two parts of the dimebox focused on what I’ve been calling the “legacy” collections. These next two are about the champs. Looking back, I’m actually surprised I didn’t find […]

Smooth As

Oh, I’m sorry. The answer we were looking for was “Silk.”

The saying is “Smooth as silk.”

What’s that? That’s what you said? Well then your prize is to look at some cards.

Can you guess what kind of cards we’re about to see?

Oh, I’m sorry. The answer we were looking for was “Silk.”

Moving Right Along

A simple phrase that can mean so many things. In April, when I started this draft, I initially intended it to talk about the progress I was making moving into our new house.

I could write about the flurry of moves the Cubs have made recently. Tonight saw Matt Garza go, but prior to that, […]

I Hope You Brought Frankincense And Myrrh

Because, I’m bringing the mutha effin’ gold, suckas!

Hopefully one of many hit leader-ings

Like this one, and a bunch more that you’re about to see.

I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were […]

We Don’t Just Hold Contests – Sometimes We Win Them Too

College Football will be starting up again very shortly. I’m not much of a football guy. If I were a football guy, I don’t think I would be a college football guy. I understand the argument as to why the college game is better. I also understand that I don’t care to keep track of […]

Ok…I’m Convinced This Is Intentional

I don’t remember who re-kindled the discussion recently (I think it was Night Owl), but a couple blogs ran with the differences between the 60 Years of Topps/Cards Your Mother Threw Out reprints versus the original cards.

The general consensus from the comments was that Topps is lazy and why the heck can’t they match […]

You’re In My World Now!

I’m back, and in 3/4 effect!

For those that are curious, the wedding went off without a hitch (aside from the near or possibly record low temperatures and biting strong gusts of wind. At least the rain had stopped by that point so we could take pictures outside). Andy took tons of video with our […]
