Twee-Commerce – Gwynn Edition

There are all kinds of resources for collectors to purchase cards. Well, maybe not all kinds, but several. I have that monthly series showing off my ebay wins. I recently spent a portion of my Sportlots selling credit on a boatload of cards. I do a couple COMC buying binges a year. I know there […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 1

I’ve been lucky to have several trade partners this second half of the year. That second wave of trade bait worked better than I anticipated, to the point where I didn’t feel very prepared.

Clearly I’m not all that prepared to thank everyone quickly either, but hey, it’s something to work on in 2019. That […]

I don’t do it every year, but most years I try to buy myself some boxes of cards as a Christmas present to myself. It all depends on budget, timing and the deals on offer. I also gravitate towards deals for products I haven’t opened at all. There are several sets where I don’t see […]

Another Non-National Card Show Post

I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.
