Trade Bait – 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter

Hey there! Take my cards! I have cards. You need cards.

What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster. Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific […]

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 […]

2018 Cubs – Fourth Ten Games

Since I’m out of the country, I have no way to watch the Cubs in the month of June. Gameday could be an option if the time difference wasn’t so big. A 7pm start is actually 5:30am here. Sadly, the team has refused all of my zero requests to stop playing the game until I […]

A Response to “A Sheltered Life”

Last year, during one of those times where I could find a moment to read other people’s blogs, I found myself reading Night Owl (as we all do, I’m sure). He had an Anthony Rizzo relic pulled from a blaster and was gracious enough to trade it to me.

Back in September of last year, […]

To Rip Or Not To Rip

As the wise poet Ja Rule once said “It ain’t even a question.”

To my recollection, I have not pulled a rip card from a pack. I’ve been very lucky throughout my collecting days, but never had the fortune to land this particular type of card so far. Maybe this upcoming Ginter year will change […]

2018 Cubs – The First Ten Games

Another season, another attempt to track my team’s progress through baseball cards. Will I make it all the way through the year this time, or will I fall short like I do with virtually everything else I try?

Last year, I celebrated every win by showing off a card, and used it as an excuse […]

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 19-24 – The Finale

It all comes down to this. 6 packs left. A lot of points need to come close to first. Looking at the leader board, it’s not looking good for this home team. Still, gotta run it out to first for the sportsmanship of it, right?

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 13-18

Half of the box is behind us, and it left two of the three promised hits on the scoring table. With that red Brooklyn mini in there as well, there may not be a whole lot more to boost this box score.

Talking about it isn’t going to help me find out for sure, so […]

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 7-12

Back again with part two. I feel like the first fourth of the box was pretty solid. Can we keep the momentum going here? Probably not, but who knows. I know it’s going to be an uphill battle without the foil hot box bonus on my side anyway.

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Boxtopper and Packs 1-6

I’m back for another year of pack fighting. Last year, I managed to grab second place. It was a tough loss. I found a nice book card in my box, but it was no match for a double rip card. Them’s the breaks. We’re not going to find another book card, but maybe we’ll be […]
