2018 Cubs – Fourteenth Ten Games

Yeah, I’m back to this already. I understand that these aren’t the most compelling posts, but it’s a good way to show off some cards without actually thinking of a coherent theme. I’m happy I’ve gotten this far into the project and I want to get up to date so I can see it through.

2017 NSCC #8 – Three Of A Kind

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched any poker on TV. I used to watch semi-regularly in college when it was becoming a bigger thing and they had those celebrity poker tournaments on Bravo and whatnot. Then I moved on as the phase ended and went into baseball watching with that free time.

2018 Cubs – Tenth Ten Games

That’s just a side effect. I don’t really care what I sent over. If the cards were that important to […]

Starlin Castro Collection – Suspended Without Pay

I have a morals clause in my collecting.

Since I only collect players, I’ve tried to be selective about which guys I focus my attention and money chasing. The reasoning I use may only make sense to me sometimes, but in general I’m looking to collect players I can root for.

That means I do […]
