ROYGBIV – Oranger

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

Still Stuck On A Trade From 2017

I’m at the point now where I want to start building up some more trade bait for the blog so I can get new packages coming in, since I’m so close to giving credit to all the packages that have come in. I just need a little time and motivation to actually work on that […]

Introducing the Jon Lester Collection

This is part twelve 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 […]

A Hot Dog Of A Trade – Part 2 of 2

Time once again to check in with a name that should be familiar to frequent readers of the blog. Bill, known as minibbcards on the Trading Card Database (his want list is found here) sent me a huge stack of cards earlier in my World Series Cubs pursuit, and I was able to turn that […]

Road To Opening Day

Baseball season is fast approaching. So fast, in fact, that the first game was actually played last night/this morning in Japan. The excitement that many feel with spring training is sure to quickly devolve into despair with the first 2-game losing streak of your favorite team. But, until then, anything can happen! This is the […]

Alright, Fine! Here Are Some Green Cards

I wasn’t going to do this today. I have a ROYGBIV rainbow series that I started and haven’t continued for a very stupid reason that my stupid mind can’t let go of. I’ll have green cards when I get to the letter G.

Besides, since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, just about every blog in the […]

Close to Caught Up With A Key Exception

Somehow, some way, I have virtually caught up on all my trade activities. There are a couple packages that arrived shortly before my surgery yet to be featured (4 of them in total), but otherwise, I’ve at least written one post on the rest. So, even though I have several multi-post trades to finish up, […]

How Many Maddux Relics

I’m not the first to be inspired by The Chronicles of Fuji, and I won’t be the last. However, I will probably be the only to be inspired by this specific post where he said he had collected an impressive 70 Greg Maddux relics so far.

As a fellow Maddux collector, it got me wondering […]

Introducing the Kyle Hendricks Collection

This is part eleven 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 […]

January 2019 Ebay Wins

My December takeaways from Ebay were quite something. I found a card that I never saw on offer for 8 years, after all. After that high, January tended to be on the low side. I also decided to hold back a little bit, because I need to conserve money for now. The holidays were expensive. […]
