Getting Ahead Of The Inevitable

Look, I know it’s coming. What’s the point in trying to deny it? There are times when I think I’m in the clear, but then when I least expect it…Blam!

Another trade package from Kerry, also known as Madding, also known as Cards on Cards arrives. It’s like he doesn’t even care that I’ve just […]

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 […]

Still Stuck On A Trade From 2017

I’m at the point now where I want to start building up some more trade bait for the blog so I can get new packages coming in, since I’m so close to giving credit to all the packages that have come in. I just need a little time and motivation to actually work on that […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 2

I’ve talked about how I’m very close to being caught up with trades. While I still have three new packages left to show off, I figured it may be a good idea to do a couple “part twos” so that future trade posts aren’t just bouncing back and forth between the same couple older packages. […]

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 […]

2019 Goals

Well, I guess this new year is here to stay. I’m not one to make resolutions, but it can’t hurt too much to make some attainable goals for the year. I’ve thought about several different areas of life and hobbies and I wanted to touch on all of them here. Let’s get started in no […]

Surviving The Polar Vortex

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the polar vortex that hid the midwest this week. I’ve been through a few harsh winters, a couple of them have damaged my home and I’m just hoping that I’m protected well enough now.

As I write this, it is only -11 degrees F with a wind chill of […]

Stick and Trade, Stick and Trade Again

I love trading for stickers. These are some of the easiest transactions I ever make. Back in the heyday of the blog, I would have random parents reaching out to me to help complete their kids’ albums. That hasn’t happened in a while, but as long as progress is being made overall, I’m happy.
