December 2018 Ebay Wins

How in the world did I end up buying so many cards on ebay with holiday gift giving front and center? Simple: I’m a selfish guy, and I like to shop for myself. These past few months have been not so great overall, which I’ve talked about to some degree on here and in sporadic […]

The Cycle Continues

I just took some time off from blogging to update my 30+ player collection want lists. With so many products coming out from Topps, Panini and random other stuff from Leaf and possibly others (ITG, Baseball Treasures, ???), it has become completely untenable to stay up to date and add new sets as they arrive.

No Trade Deadline Here

The MLB trading deadline has come and gone. Rosters have been expanded for a few weeks and we’re in the waning days of the regular season. But just because the actual teams can’t swap players doesn’t mean that collectors can’t swap cards of those players. There are no deadlines in hobbies. Occasionally there are temporary […]

Jon’s Christmas Haul

I hope everyone out there and a great, safe, action-packed, cardboard-packed, relic-packed, on-card auto-packed, pack-packed holiday season!

The presents are all unwrapped and the candy cane high is finally starting to wind down, so I think it’s about time that I showed off the goods that were waiting for me under the tree. Since this […]
