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 […]
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 […]
Congratulations to Jake Arrieta on his second career no-hitter! It’s extremely fun to watch that guy pitch these days. I don’t know how long this run will last, but it doesn’t look like it will slow down anytime soon. He is continuing his domination and it’s great to have a virtually guaranteed win every fifth […]
There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]
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 […]

I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which was split into 5 parts […]
I’ve been pretty inactive on this blog, as you can likely tell. I wish I could claim it was simply due to work taking over my life again, but it’s not true. I’m simply having a tough time finding the inspiration or motivation to write.
Baseball cards are still great, and I’m not currently planning […]
My last National post was all about cards I had, but bought again because I’m a dumb piece of dumb that’s dumb in the head.
Today, I want to focus on the positive side of the doubles spectrum. What follows aren’t exactly duplicates, they’re parallels. It’s understandable that some dealers would have more than one […]
