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 [...]

For The Greater Wood – Part 1

Second post in a row with a preamble. You may have noticed that there’s no blogroll on the side anymore. We did some wordpress updating and moved our hosting and it didn’t port over. I’m slowly working to find a good plugin to create a new blogroll, and hope to have it back up shortly.

Tracking Our ’08 Bowman Prospects – Post 2013 Edition

Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a box of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects as well.)

Since Bowman is all about the prospect cards, you really [...]

Collecting Milestones

I recently updated my want lists for the first time in 5 months. It was both a cathartic and discouraging process.

Cathartic because I truly enjoy making and compiling my checklists. I’ve always liked making lists. By no means am I an organized person, but organizing things and hobbies into lists or sorting things hits [...]

Tracking Our ’08 Bowman Prospects – Post 2012 Edition

Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a case of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects last year as well.)

I Hope You Brought Frankincense And Myrrh

Because, I’m bringing the mutha effin’ gold, suckas!

Hopefully one of many hit leader-ings

Like this one, and a bunch more that you’re about to see.

I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were [...]

End Of An Era: Kerry Wood Retires – A Cardboard Retrospective

Reflections – fitting name for the set

The card you see above is the last Kerry Wood card I acquired while he was still an active player, and quite an appropriate one at that.

You see, it’s tough to tell the story of Kerry Wood’s career without touching on the expectations and the subsequent [...]

Sometimes You Eat the Bar…

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take [...]

2011 Bowman Draft Case Break and Review

Way back in 2011, we broke character and busted a whole case of 2011 Bowman Draft. I say broke character because both Jon and I aren’t particularly fans of anything in the Bowman world. But, to be fair, we’ve busted very little of it so we thought we’d break a case of it and see [...]

Billy Butler RC Auto Roundup

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take [...]
