A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 8 of 8

The time has come to end this saga. I started showing off this trade in September 2017. Then work got in the way for a few months (part 2 went up in April), and I wanted to give air time to other trades along the way as well, but nearly exactly a year later the […]

2018 Cubs – Eleventh Ten Games

My little vacation, paired with the Gint-A-Cuffs posts, have put me a little farther behind on this adventure. By the time this goes up, The Cubs will have played 140 games or so. That’s three more of these posts. With each passing day, the series inches away from me. I’m bound and determined to get […]

Trade Package To Be Named Later

With all the crazy MLB trade activity going on in July and August, you hear about that infamous Player to be Named Later thing. It’s a very common tactic among clubs to say that they’ll test drive the main attraction for a month or two and then decide how much he’s actually worth.

Greg, otherwise […]

Fighting a Losing Battle

Over the past couple months, I’ve been making a more concerted effort to get caught up on trade packages that I received over the past year (things got rough from Oct-Mar). I’m getting closer, but still several blog posts behind over three trade partners. That includes Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. I actually have two […]

A Small Post

Well, it’s Ginter season again, which means chasing those minis is on everyone-who-cares-about-chasing-minis’ minds. For the player collection types like me, it means another round of variations to very slowly go after. It’s a daunting task and I certainly don’t bring in more than what are produced each year, so it’s also a losing battle […]

April 2018 Ebay Wins

In my March post, I mentioned how that month has been historically difficult for me due to work concerns. That’s the big deadline we work toward each year, and it becomes an all-hands on deck, don’t plan anything during nights and weekends affair.

April, on the other hand, is a lot more free. For me […]

An Almost Timely All-Star Game Post

Last night was the All-Star Game in case you didn’t know. Of course you knew. I don’t always watch the game, and I didn’t watch all of it last night either. My wife went to yoga and so I caught a few innings. The game moves a bit too slow with all the circus activities […]

Top O’ The Box To Ya

One of the most annoying things about collecting, in my opinion, is dealing with the non-standard card sizes. I’ve expressed my displeasure of minis in the past, but rarely do I get to talk about the oversize stuff.

That’s because I haven’t been actively seeking the oversized cards for quite some time. When I went […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 4

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill, then in April I got back on track and showed off part 2. May saw part 3, and here we are in June for part 4. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen […]

2018 Cubs – Fourth Ten Games

Since I’m out of the country, I have no way to watch the Cubs in the month of June. Gameday could be an option if the time difference wasn’t so big. A 7pm start is actually 5:30am here. Sadly, the team has refused all of my zero requests to stop playing the game until I […]
