Maddux Overload – 1999 Edition

1999.

The Denver Broncos repeat as NFL champions, taking out the Atlanta Falcons.

The San Antonio Spurs take advantage of a Jordan-less NBA and deny the New York Knicks a championship. On the WNBA side, the Houston Comets continue to dominate with their third straight title (also over New York).

Michael Johnson set a new […]

That June 2017 Ebay Frank Thomas Lot

I teased this before in my June ebay rundown, but I happened to stumble across a nice Frank Thomas lot in one of my random, non-saved searches. It was one of those unique situations where the seller wasn’t very experienced and the title and description was very vague. The title was “1990 Frank Thomas Leaf […]

Kerry Wood By the Numbers

Work, vacation, work, sickness, and work have kept me away from the blog for awhile again. I will never understand how many of you post so regularly. I have quite a bit to talk about soon and series to continue, new ones to start, National cards to show off, and trade bait to post. Oh, […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Frank Thomas Edition

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging (over 7 years now….), I’ve either obtained a small amount of cards from one source, or I’ve posted most cards from a package but not all. That leaves a bunch of “master files” taking up space in my scan folders, waiting for inspiration to strike or a theme […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Tony Gwynn Edition

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging (over 7 years now….), I’ve either obtained a small amount of cards from one source, or I’ve posted most cards from a package but not all. That leaves a bunch of “master files” taking up space in my scan folders, waiting for inspiration to strike or a theme […]

2017 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I started to do this last year, but then gave up in July or so. I didn’t follow the team the second half of the year until the playoffs hit. However, this is a new year and the reason I stopped watching the Cubs signed with the Yankees in the off-season, so I’m more excited […]

Maddux Overload – 1998 Edition

1998.

The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.

The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]

Calling All Card Detectives – A 5X7 Mystery

Okay, so as the title mentions, I need a little help. I hope you’ll bear with me to the end (or at least skip there) to see if we can crack this case. I’m not the most knowledgeable collector by any means, but I’m resourceful enough to find most cards that are tough to identify.

2016 Cubs – The Fourth 10 Games

Okay, now we’re slowing down. Not just blog wise. The Cubs only managed 5 wins in this batch of ten, which is the first without a winning record. That will make my job of catching up a little easier. Coming off a run of winning 9 of 10, going .500 isn’t too terrible. Maintaining our […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]
