Another Non-National Card Show Post

I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.

Video Games vs. Card Collecting – Side Quests

I’m going to try something a little different on the blog. Lately, most of my free time has been spent watching a bunch of movies (I’ve even been writing the occasional review again after 2 years of not doing that – here’s that blog) and shows and playing video games. Basically, I find myself enjoying […]

2015 NSCC #2 – NIT-picking

Going into the show, I had very good intentions of padding my basketball collections. I really only have two focuses at this point. One is to collect the 2011-12 Past & Present master set. The other is to collect the 1995-96 inserts – which I’m very eager to actually complete.

In reality, the bargain boxes […]

National Sports Card Convention Recap Intro

I saved for several months to prepare for my trip to the National Sports Card Convention.

I finally went, and it was fantastic. You’ve all seen pictures of the show floor before. It’s huge and magnificent and overwhelming and intimidating and a magical wonderland of cardboard rainbows. There are parts that I outright ignored (*cough* […]

National Sports Card Convention Goals

I’ve been to many a card show in my youth, and a small spattering in my adult hood, but never in my 6 years back into the collecting fold have I been to the National Sports Card Convention.

It’s a shame, because it’s held in Chicago (where I live, for those that don’t know) every […]

Cards Upon Cards From Cards On Cards

I moved into my house about 8 months ago. At that time, there were a few people looking to send packages my way, but I wanted to wait until I got things semi-unpacked and I settled down.

Then I learned there was no such thing and let a couple know they could send away.

Madding […]

I’m In The Club

Isn’t it nice to be part of something special?

Madding from Cards on Cards started a basketball club several months ago. The idea was that some of us primarily baseball collectors could have an outlet to receive some secondary basketball cards. He gets to dump his other teams from the new stuff he buys, and […]

Beat the Heat

How about those Bulls, huh? Congratulations to them for beating the Miami Heat and ending their remarkable streak. It’s no 72-10 record, but Miami’s run was still quite amazing.

The fact that we were able to do it without Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah makes me optimistic for the playoffs. I hope they can both […]

Top 50 Michael Jordan Cards: #20-11

I thought I would sneak in another post in between episodes of my Jordan cards countdown, but it’s not meant to be. Too many things to get done before leaving.

If you thought what you saw before was good, just you wait. We’re past the […]
