A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 2

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen trade bait posts and we worked out a nice, large exchange – mostly for my budding 2016 WS champ players. Far too many cards for one, […]

I’m Back…I Think (At Least For Now)

Even though my interest in blogging had been somewhat waning, I didn’t intend to reduce my output to one post every four months. You can thank my job for that.

Those that have known me for a couple years know that this happened last year as well. The short of it is that my job […]

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.

Allen Hunter and Ginter Gatherer

I don’t know if this happens to anyone else, but every once in a while I get a bunch of cards from the same set or brand within a short period of time. Sometimes it’s because of an ebay binge. Sometimes, it’s a new set that gets released and trades come through. Sometimes…well, sometimes I […]

Next Year(‘s Cards) Is Here

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Cubs. Even though in 2014 we finished last in the NL Central, somehow Vegas stared the year projecting us as one of the favorites to win the World Series. Granted, this team has been quite a bit better, but I think it’s possibly a tiny bit too […]

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 […]

Closing Day

We’re just about a week away from baseball’s opening day.

It’s a wonderful time of the year. Spring is starting to rear it’s pretty little head. New baseball cards start coming out faster than a Vin Diesel driven car. Hope and optimism is in every fan’s head.

The future is now.

But sometimes before you […]

Not Quite Westminster

We’re only a week or two removed from the biggest dog show of the year. Banana Joe the Affenpinscher took away Best in Show. Now he gets to make the rounds in the media and across the country to various other smaller dog shows.

Sort of like the one that’s happening in Chicago this weekend. […]
