Digital De-Cluttering – Greg Maddux Edition

Fall is upon us, and while the rodents are filing their cheeks getting ready for winter, I’m over here trying to get rid of some things. Hopefully soon this will translate into showing some trade bait on the blog, but for the time being I’m going to settle for cleaning up some of my collections […]

Undeserved

I know I’ve been questioning whether or not to continue the blog, but I can unquestioningly say that I’ve been extremely lucky with the bloggers and readers I’ve “met.” It’s a great community, and I highly recommend it to people that have the time. I’m very sorry that I haven’t for a while.

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 4 of 5)

Welcome to the second to last part of my initial Check Out My Cards purchase. If you’re just joining us, you can find the other parts of the countdown here, here, and here.

I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which will be split into […]

A Quick Trade Post Diversion

Before my involuntary hiatus, I made quite a few trades. I’m still not sure if I’m fully ready to start up the trading again, even though I’d love to, so for now I’ll have to make due with posting these older trades from over a year ago. Take this trade with Red Sox Fan in […]

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 […]

A Rally Cry For the Brewers (aka Inadvertent Jinxing)

Keep watching this space, because on Sunday I’ll be unveiling something that will keep this blog occupied for some time starting in late October. Once that starts up, I won’t want to stop everything to wedge in a trade post.

Luckily, I have no qualms about squeezing one more in before the announcement. Then I’m […]

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 […]

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 […]

Non-Trade Player Collection Write-Up Thingy

Now that “Conan” is over, I can write a quick little post.

One of my goals with this blog is to write a little blurb on each individual card from my player collections. Mostly, I’ve been accomplishing this through trade posts. On my trade posts, however, I mostly only feature some key highlights and not […]
