Birthday Cards From A Different Year

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 […]

Back From Vacation – Unpacking Some Clothes

The blog has been silent for a little while once again. Part of the reason for the lack of activity was that I went on a little vacation. I flew down to Atlanta to visit my brother and attend Dragon Con for the first time. Then I came back home and relaxed for the rest […]

2015 NSCC #8 – Relic the Opportunity

The 2016 National Sports Collectors Convention is happening next weekend. I won’t get to go this year. It’s in Atlantic City and I’m not anywhere near there and my travel days are pretty much booked.

Plus Lollapalooza is always that same weekend and I am very near there and my wife bought tickets for Sunday. […]

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.”

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

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 5 of 5)

Welcome to the 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, here, and here.

I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which was split into 5 parts […]

Guaranteed Winners (AKA “In The Black”)

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 […]

2015 NSCC #3 – National, Not Regional

The experience of going to the National will really prepare and inform future expectations of the show. Before going in, I had this weird mind set that basically anything would be available for the picking if you just looked in the right spot.

I had high hopes that I would make some really good progress […]

Unparalleled Trade Partner, Multi-Parallel Trade

I know people are probably anxious to see posts recapping my adventure at the 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention, but that’s going to wait a bit longer as I organize more stuff. For now, here’s a package that basically feels like a mini-National.

Brian from Play at the Plate has always been a great supporter […]
