Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 4

You all know the deal by now. I try to figure out a way to introduce the same blogger and trade package after doing so a few times before. I post some links and then get into showing the cards.

So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his […]

What Bowman Is Good For

Well, I think it’s safe to say that I missed the boat on Bowman-mania this year. And last year. And the year before. And….

No, I didn’t buy a single pack, and I’m certainly not going to spend extra money on packs that are priced above normal MSRP. I’ve never been the prospecting type and […]

February 2019 Ebay Wins

Last year, I didn’t get around to posting my February ebay wins until June of that year. I’m a couple months ahead of that schedule now, but I’ve been slacking a bit as I work to get some trade bait stuff going again, which is just about done.

This month is a light one. I […]

Road To Opening Day

Baseball season is fast approaching. So fast, in fact, that the first game was actually played last night/this morning in Japan. The excitement that many feel with spring training is sure to quickly devolve into despair with the first 2-game losing streak of your favorite team. But, until then, anything can happen! This is the […]

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 […]
