A Quick Trade With Reader Tim

I’m feeling a little writer’s block here, so I’m going to make this short. I’ve been making some progress on my sticker albums recently. I’m not sure what’s spurred this interest, but I’m happy to oblige. I try to spam my want lists as much as it’s relevant to do so. Maybe it’s having more […]

September 2018 Ebay Wins

Blog activity has been really light lately. I’m sorry about that. I’m not sure if I’m going to explain why I’ve been away, but maybe. It’s worth talking about, but I just don’t know if and when that might actually happen.

So, instead, I’ll just run through my September Ebay wins. It feels like it’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gint-A-Cuffs X: Packs 17-24

This is it. The last third. One hit within 8 packs and hopefully some other unknown treasures that will boost the score even more (updated total so far is 86). Let’s see some Cubs.

Pack 17

Rodriguez Fantasy Goldmine (+2 insert)

I can’t say I care about Fantasy sports. Nor do I care […]

Gint-A-Cuffs X: Packs 9-16

Time to keep ripping along in our GAC adventure with the second of three parts. As a quick recap, I ended the first part with 36 known points and 2 unknown cards as the commissioner didn’t have points assigned to them yet (updated total is 45). Still, it’s time to keep on truckin’ as they […]

Gint-A-Cuffs X: Boxtopper and Packs 1-8

I’m back for another year of pack fighting. Last year, I did not fare very well. It can be tough to compete against anyone that might open a full case, or just luck into some case hit cards. I did get a nice numbered autograph, but that was not enough to get me to place. […]
