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 […]

Introducing the Willson Contreras Collection

This is part seven 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 […]

LentAcular

This week Topps announced they’re doing an online only 3D version of the 2018 Topps set using lenticular technology. The packout and price are bit too much for my liking (8 cards for $20 for a 100 card set with inserts), but it’s neat nonetheless. That got me wanting to look at a few of […]

Two Twitter Trades In One

I normally don’t do this, but I’m going to cover two trades in one post. I apologize in advance if either trader is disappointed in sharing the spotlight.

Twitter is becoming a more critical piece of my collecting experience. Most bloggers are on there, and I’m slowly building up the list of people I’m following. […]

ROYGBIV – I’m Seeing Red

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

June 2018 Ebay Wins

June was a bad month. I don’t really want to talk about June. I was rarely home. Bad things happened. It was a mess and a dark time.

Being overseas, I didn’t want to look at stuff to buy. I didn’t want to expose my paypal to any foreign IPs, etc. So, it was a […]

Enter Sandman

Twitter is fun place for sports cards. Other things, not so much. I’m not as active on there as I might like to be, but I’m trying to get better. I’m also not very good at following people on there, so if you’re a blogger or reader and I don’t follow you, let me know […]

Card-ography #7 – Jorge Soler

Welcome to Part 5. I’m doing a terrible job of showing off all of my autograph cards with any sort of regularity. People like the flashy stuff, right? Well, it’s not going to get much flashier than the example we have today. Jorge Soler has been suffering injuries since his transition into the Royals staff, […]

2018 Cubs – Ninth Ten Games

I’m feeling fairly confident that I’ll actually be able to finish this series, and close to on time as well. The Cubs have played over 110 games at this point, so I still need to catch up a bit, but aside from a vacation coming up the last week of this month, I don’t have […]

Introducing the Joe Maddon Collection

This is part six 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 […]
