2018 Cubs – Fifteenth Ten Games

Sshhh! Don’t spoil the ending!

Young Lackey subbing for Quintana

Win #84 – Quintana – On this day, he went 6.2 innings, giving up only 3 hits, 0 runs, and 2 walks with 7 Ks. Jose didn’t have an amazing year, but he was better than what people gave him credit for. The ERA […]

August 2018 Ebay Wins

July was full of big acquisitions. Possibly too many. Overcompensating is a word that comes to mind. August wasn’t quite as big in terms of cards, but it still managed to be pretty dang nice as you’ll see. September, on the other hand, will be much lighter, but we’ll talk about that in a couple […]

2018 Cubs – Fourteenth Ten Games

Yeah, I’m back to this already. I understand that these aren’t the most compelling posts, but it’s a good way to show off some cards without actually thinking of a coherent theme. I’m happy I’ve gotten this far into the project and I want to get up to date so I can see it through.

A Few More Good Group Breaks

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off some of my group break take-aways. I don’t join a ton of them, and I really haven’t wanted to take the plunge on those guys who have breaking businesses. Maybe I will at some point, but I don’t like getting into the high-end stuff and really risking […]

2018 Cubs – Thirteenth Ten Games

Having 7 straight days of trade bait means I’m slipping behind on this task again. We’re past the 150 game mark and the race is still tense as I write this. Hopefully there is a little more separation by the time this goes live.

For games 121-130, there was a small 3 game losing streak […]

Trade Bait – 2017 Topps Fire

Day 1 of 7 in another week long trade bait party. Keep coming back and claiming through comments on each post and we’ll finalize after day 7 is done.

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 […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 2 of 2

Welcome to part two of the July card auction explosion. I hope everyone enjoyed the first part. If you missed it, check out the link, because it was full of fun stuff including a rip card (spoiler!)

I’m going to keep the party going here and start off with another big card and end with […]

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 […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 1 of 2

June was very light since I was hardly in the country. July, I kind of spoiled myself a bit. After that rough month where all kinds of things were going wrong, I did a little retail auction therapy. It also helped that I had a bit of extra money since I had no extra expenses […]

2018 Cubs – Twelfth Ten Games

I know I just posted the 11th installment of this a couple days ago, but I really do want to stay on top of this season as much as possible. I recognize that no one reads these posts anyway, so this is all about my own personal piece of mind. The division race is starting […]
