Sammy Hits Another Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A couple of months ago, I showcased a trade with CubsFanStan where I sent him a few Sammy Sosa cards I had up on Sportlots and he gave me an assortment of good stuff.

Fast forward a little bit and Stan was opening packs on twitter, and a couple things peaked my interest. Not too […]

Introducing the Joe Maddon Collection

This is part six 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 #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 […]

April 2018 Ebay Wins

In my March post, I mentioned how that month has been historically difficult for me due to work concerns. That’s the big deadline we work toward each year, and it becomes an all-hands on deck, don’t plan anything during nights and weekends affair.

April, on the other hand, is a lot more free. For me […]

Sammy Hits A Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A few months ago, I worked out a trade with Cubs Fan Stan (https://www.cubsfanstan.com/). He serendipitously discovered through a twitter post I made about my selling on Sportlots that I had stuff he needed for his Sammy Sosa collection. A little back and forth and I sent him some of the Stadium giveaway cards that […]

March 2018 Ebay Wins

With all my time away from home recently, I had let my new acquisitions pile up, unscanned. As far as Ebay stuff is concerned, I finally got around to logging them in my want lists and digitizing them for future posts through May.

March was a lighter month for me. Work was getting really busy […]

February 2018 Ebay Wins

While I’m getting caught up on the Cubs schedule a bit, I’m farther behind on my monthly Ebay purchase breakdowns. I’ll get there. I just need to do more than one a month a few times and I’ll be there. Gotta take in fewer cards than I’m posting out. All easier said than done when […]

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 […]

Greetings From India

Hi everybody. Greetings from halfway around the world. I’m currently sitting in a hotel room in a lesser known, but still incredibly busy city in India for a work trip.

It is not going well. I do not wish you were here. Actually, that’s partly not true. It would be great if someone were here […]

2018 Cubs – Third Ten Games

I’m temporarily back to the blog. After spending a week in London and Scotland, I got home Sunday night, picked up my dog from the parents on Monday and largely caught up on work today. I do want to talk about my trip in some detail, but I’m anxious to get something posted now. Hopefully […]
