Digital De-Cluttering – Frank Thomas Edition

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging (over 7 years now….), I’ve either obtained a small amount of cards from one source, or I’ve posted most cards from a package but not all. That leaves a bunch of “master files” taking up space in my scan folders, waiting for inspiration to strike or a theme […]

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.

Cards Upon Cards From Cards On Cards

I moved into my house about 8 months ago. At that time, there were a few people looking to send packages my way, but I wanted to wait until I got things semi-unpacked and I settled down.

Then I learned there was no such thing and let a couple know they could send away.

Madding […]

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 […]

Halls Well That Ends Well

When 2013 Topps came out, I went a little overboard. For a set that I have no intention of completing, I bought way too much. A blaster or a few packs to test the waters is one thing. Buying 3 blasters that basically costs the same as a hobby box is another.

The good news […]

All For Naught #2

Our blog was down for who knows how long for who knows why after I posted the first of these. Here’s hoping the same fate doesn’t befall round two.

If you missed the first part, and don’t feel like going back, just know that I’m very grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of bloggers and […]

Sporadic Posts, But Still Making Progress

Alright, I’m now into June for my scans. We’re getting somewhere! I might be able to make it into July before the end of the month if I’m lucky. We’ll see. Fingers are crossed.

Next on the list is this trade with Sam of “The Daily Dimwit” fame. Here we begin a trio of trades […]

I Met A Pack Searcher

Do you ever get that adrenaline rush coursing through your body right before something’s going to go down? It could be a car accident. It could be people moshing a little too roughly at a concert. It could be an unexpected meeting with the boss. Your body is psyching yourself up for confrontation. It’s screaming […]

At What Point Does It Become False Advertising?

I’ll get to the main point of the post title in just a second, but first I want to encourage anyone who may have missed it to read Andy’s latest post below. It can be really easy for us to dismiss certain blog posts because of the title (I know I do it often when […]

A Couple Things You Might Like to Know…And Two Videos

So, in all of the Kobe heart-pounding excitement, I forgot to tell all of you that we finally got around to posting that Crown Royale Triple Patch card on ebay as well. Unfortunately the market has dropped out some for this card, but hopefully we can get a nice little playoff rally going and get […]
