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.
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 […]
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 […]
The Green Bay Packers claim the Super Bowl title over the New England Patriots, and I’m sure the commercials were better than they would be a decade later.
The Bulls repeat for the second time in their history, by beating the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. Also, the Houston Comets win the first […]

The kid […]
A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]
The experience of going to the National will really prepare and inform future expectations of the show. Before going in, I had this weird mind set that basically anything would be available for the picking if you just looked in the right spot.
I had high hopes that I would make some really good progress […]
There is a lot of hype surrounding the Cubs. Even though in 2014 we finished last in the NL Central, somehow Vegas stared the year projecting us as one of the favorites to win the World Series. Granted, this team has been quite a bit better, but I think it’s possibly a tiny bit too […]
Welcome to the second part of my initial Check Out My Cards purchase. If you’re just joining us, you can find the first part of the countdown here.
I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which will be split into 5 parts for sanity reasons. […]
