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, […]

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. […]

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 […]

Introducing the Albert Almora Collection

This is part nine 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

2018 Cubs – Sixteenth Ten Games (+4)

So we’ve come to the end. I’m going to have one more post on the 2018 season to recap the overall player of the game counts and do whatever else I want. That should be interesting to me and me alone. Honestly, I’m just excited that I was able to actually make it through this […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 7

I have a few newer trades that came through over the past couple weeks, which is great. Pretty soon, I’m hoping to get another round of trade bait out there to see what other stuff I can catch. I have a small trip coming up, but after that I’ll hopefully put things together for both […]
