The last time I did this kind of post (also the first time), it was fall of last year when I still had hopes that work wouldn’t suck my soul into the upside down. Now we’re in spring, so I can use the whole spring cleaning analogy. Hooray?
Throughout my years of collecting and blogging […]
I know my blog activity has been sparse for the past few years and all readership has evaporated, but I do still want to keep things going here. Some of you may know that work is the biggest factor. When things get busy, I’m usually putting in 60-100 hours a week for about 6 months. […]
You probably heard this already, but right before the All-Star Game Major League Baseball announced that it was renaming the batting championship trophies for each league.
On the American League side, players will receive the Rod Carew Trophy, a man who ended his career with a .328 average and 7-time batting champion. That news generated […]
If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]
In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.
First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.
The kid […]
There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]
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 […]
There are a few good things about having a birthday in late October.
As a kid, you get presents and then a bag full of candy a few days later, which is basically like presents from strangers. The weather is cooler (although sometimes too cool or wet). And the baseball postseason is in full swing.
This won’t take up too much of your time, but I wanted to at least acknowledge the end of the Chicago Cubs’ 2015 season.
Simply put, we had a great run! I know that some people at the start of the season expected really big things out of the Cubs, and Vegas even had them […]
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.
