Enter Sandman

Twitter is fun place for sports cards. Other things, not so much. I’m not as active on there as I might like to be, but I’m trying to get better. I’m also not very good at following people on there, so if you’re a blogger or reader and I don’t follow you, let me know […]

Card-ography #7 – Jorge Soler

Welcome to Part 5. I’m doing a terrible job of showing off all of my autograph cards with any sort of regularity. People like the flashy stuff, right? Well, it’s not going to get much flashier than the example we have today. Jorge Soler has been suffering injuries since his transition into the Royals staff, […]

2018 Cubs – Ninth Ten Games

I’m feeling fairly confident that I’ll actually be able to finish this series, and close to on time as well. The Cubs have played over 110 games at this point, so I still need to catch up a bit, but aside from a vacation coming up the last week of this month, I don’t have […]

2017 NSCC #7 – Needles In A Haystack

The 2018 National is starting today and I will not be attending. Maybe I’ll go to Cleveland in a future year, but not this time. Further east seems like less of an option. I could drive to Ohio, but I don’t want to pay for a flight to go farther than that. The good news […]

Trading For Former Cubs

I’m not great at thinking of titles, and I foolishly didn’t think of a good title to throw a “Part 1” after, like I’ve tried to do with others recently. So, now I’m sitting here brainstorming new titles for each set of cards from Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. To make matters worse, I didn’t […]

Introducing the Justin Grimm Collection

This is part five of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

2018 Cubs – Sixth Ten Games

I’m back home in Chicago after a long, emotionally draining trip. My stomach still hasn’t fully recovered, but I already feel my sleep schedule getting back in line. I don’t know how much I’m going to talk about my time in India after this. I do want to talk about my trip out to London […]

Top O’ The Box To Ya

One of the most annoying things about collecting, in my opinion, is dealing with the non-standard card sizes. I’ve expressed my displeasure of minis in the past, but rarely do I get to talk about the oversize stuff.

That’s because I haven’t been actively seeking the oversized cards for quite some time. When I went […]

Introducing the Kyle Schwarber Collection

This is part four of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

2017 NSCC #5 – An Elite Card Show

The National is easily the best card show I’ve ever had the privilege to attend. I know not everyone has the opportunity, but if you can arrange it, please do yourself a favor. There are so many vendors there that are simply looking to liquidate everything that they have, and there’s so much to look […]
