Ginter? I barely knower!

Hey, remember how I still have a bunch of 18 month old trades to post? I do. The great Nachos Grande sent me some stuff a long time ago in exchange for some of the Topps online die cut thingies. The dude loves to trade, and he’s a great trade partner. You should all help […]

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 […]

It’s Not What You Think

Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.

Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and […]

Not So Much Closing Day

Andy and I just took in a Cubs game together. The Cubs defeated the reigning champion Giants 4-3, but not after some come-to-be-expected drama from the Cubs bullpen.

We entered the 9th inning leading 2-0 thanks to solo homers by David DeJesus (which the announcer pronounced Da-Hey-Juice) and Starlin “Still No Walks” Castro. You may […]

The Greatest Trade “Throw-In” Ever

And that’s not me speaking in hyperbole to get a couple extra clicks, either. Will you agree? I guess we’ll find out in a few minutes.

Not too long ago, Dutch Card Guy and I worked out a trade for some of my Topps Minis. He was working on the set and I was able […]

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. […]

Blue Tape Brigade

In my most recent post, I sung the praises of the #TwitterTrade. Well…second verse, same as the first.

This time, I’m talking about Charles, aka @SWLVGUY. He’s another must-follow on there. Not only is he a great trader, as you’re about to see, but also a fantastic twitter ambassador for the hobby.

Oh, and he […]

A Blogger’s Best Friend

We almost adopted a cat recently. We were planning to wait until we get a house, but while shopping for our parents’ pets, we saw this certain cat. He was 9 years old and was given up by his previous owners simply because they had a kid and didn’t want to take care of both.

Ginter! Gint-A-Cuffs! Fighting! Ripping! Ripping Packs! Packs of Ginter!

Video! Finally!

Slow on the draw as usual getting our video and review up for everyone to enjoy and/or summarily ignore. Then to make matters worse, we forgot to shoot our card close-ups! Shoddy craftsmanship. Just you wait. As soon as blogging becomes our full-time […]
