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 […]

Introducing the John Lackey Collection

This is part two of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

Upper Deck Then

In my last post, I talked about the Topps Now program. But forget that! Let’s look at one of the original “daily” sets – UD Documentary.

Gold win-loss for this post: 1-0

I’ve actually opened up a case of Documentary.

1-1

Why, you may ask? Well, the boxes were pretty cheap.

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 […]

Collecting Milestones

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

Cathartic because I truly enjoy making and compiling my checklists. I’ve always liked making lists. By no means am I an organized person, but organizing things and hobbies into lists or sorting things hits […]

When You Can’t Buy Anything New

I’m sure all of us have been in a budget crunch situation multiple times in our lives. It’s only natural to see cash ebb as well as flow. I’m in the middle of an “ebb” cycle, and I’m expecting to stay firmly there until at least after the holidays.

That means no buying new cards. […]

Stick(er) and Move

Don’t forget to sign-up for our Absolutely Free 2003 Leaf Baseball Box Group Break, if you haven’t already. Teams are filling up quickly and you don’t want to miss out on some 100% free cards!

The 2012 Topps MLB Sticker album will be coming out soon. I haven’t had a reason to buy any packs […]

Bowman and Bubblegum

Boy, it’s tough to maintain Catch-Up September when I don’t post for a week or so.

Good news: I’ve been really busy Bad news: Not all of it has been card related Good news: Some of it is! Bad news: None of that is anything visibly noticeable on the ol’ bloggeroo

Good news: I also […]

It’s A Cardboard Smorgasbord

There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m the last person from BA Benny’s Baseball Card Buffet’s massively awesome group break to show off their goods. I’ve seen a couple of you go through the piles of cards in extreme detail, and most of you give a couple key highlights. I’ll be in that latter […]

Gotta Document Somethin’!

Phew. After this, I’ll have finally caught up with all the trades I’ve completed with Rhubarb Runner over at “e’ rayhahn, rayhah”. I got a bunch of other blogs to hit still, but this is something of a weight off my shoulders. I have a tendency to complete multiple trades with bloggers before I get […]
