Hall of Fame Dream Team

Sorry in advance, because the title of this post is not going to match what you thought you were going to get.

I rarely remember my dreams. It’s extremely common that I will dream something and then as soon as I open my eyes, it’s gone from my memory. For the past year or so, […]

Not Jesting About This Mostly Retail Exclusive Trade

I think it may be about time to put up another round of trade bait. My second, and most recent wave, was a decent success. I also need to try to sell some bigger value cards (since those are tougher to trade). In short, I’m anxious to get stuff out of my house, but haven’t […]

December 2018 Ebay Wins

How in the world did I end up buying so many cards on ebay with holiday gift giving front and center? Simple: I’m a selfish guy, and I like to shop for myself. These past few months have been not so great overall, which I’ve talked about to some degree on here and in sporadic […]

Some Stuff From Boxes I’ve Bought In The Past

Sometimes I have grand ideas for my time. Well, maybe “grand” is the wrong word. I have ideas for how I want to spend my time and what I would do with the blog. Most of them really don’t ever pan out.

I don’t want to say I’m lazy, but the best way to keep […]

Easy To Remember Sticker Trade

This may end up being my last post of the year – it’s tough to find the time to write with all this holiday stuff going on. There’s also a small chance this is my last post ever. WordPress desperately wants to update my blog, and I’m sure it’s way past due. The problem is […]

November 2018 Ebay Wins

Happy Holidays everybody. It’s that time of year where giving is more important than receiving and money is spent on other people in the great name of CONSUMERISM rather than on yourself in the great name of CONSUMERISM. Grow that economy. Spend, spend, spend.

I’m doing my part. Uncle Sam needs you.

My brain is […]

No Purchase Necessary

In my previous post, I talked about some of the different ways one can go about purchasing cards as part of my trademark lazy openings (psst, you’re reading another one right now). Buying stuff is all well and good, but have you tried this thing called barter?

I’ve dabbled here and there. Over the past […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 1

I’ve been lucky to have several trade partners this second half of the year. That second wave of trade bait worked better than I anticipated, to the point where I didn’t feel very prepared.

Clearly I’m not all that prepared to thank everyone quickly either, but hey, it’s something to work on in 2019. That […]

October 2018 Ebay Wins

I almost didn’t get this past month’s haul posted this month. Part of this is I’ve had several nights of being out with the wife, or having people visit or whatever else, but the other part is that I was waiting a couple weeks for my last October purchase to arrive.

Late PWE arrival

2018 Cubs – Best Players Of The Season

Alright, it’s time we wrap thing up for the season. As you may have seen, I was awarding a player of the game for each Cubs win. It was a sort of quick and certainly easy way to show off some additional cards from my collection. I enjoyed the exercise if only for the fact […]
