A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 4

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill, then in April I got back on track and showed off part 2. May saw part 3, and here we are in June for part 4. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen […]

January 2018 Ebay Wins

Well, this will be quick. After a larger December, the first month of this year only saw two new cards come in the mail. Things will slowly pick up from here for a bit until about now where I’m stalled buying cards due to travel. I’m really itching to relax and open packs, so when […]

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 […]

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 […]

December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 2

Yesterday, I showed off the first part of my December wins. It’s pretty rare for me to get the part 2 of anything up so quickly, but I checked and there were only 4 more cards to end the month and the year. I also wanted to just get it out of the way now, […]

December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 1

November may have been a lighter month, but December made up for it. As you can tell from the title, I’ll need a second part to get through it all. It’s interesting to look back and see how this all shakes out. I can try to speculate as to why I find more on certain […]

November 2017 Ebay Wins

November was a pretty slow month. Maybe the sellers were putting less up on the auction block as they prepared for the holidays, or maybe they were pricing things too high to maximize their dollars to pay for the holidays. Whatever the case, it was a light inbound season for me with only 5 new […]

2018 Cubs – Second Ten Games

Baseball season is no longer in its infancy. We’re already in the toddler stages and at close to thirty games played, teams are starting to show us what they’ll be when they grow up. Stepping back to the first 20 games, the Cubs have shown that there’s still quite a bit of development left.

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, […]
