July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 1 of 2

June was very light since I was hardly in the country. July, I kind of spoiled myself a bit. After that rough month where all kinds of things were going wrong, I did a little retail auction therapy. It also helped that I had a bit of extra money since I had no extra expenses […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 7

I have a few newer trades that came through over the past couple weeks, which is great. Pretty soon, I’m hoping to get another round of trade bait out there to see what other stuff I can catch. I have a small trip coming up, but after that I’ll hopefully put things together for both […]

ROYGBIV – I’m Seeing Red

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

2018 Cubs – Ninth Ten Games

I’m feeling fairly confident that I’ll actually be able to finish this series, and close to on time as well. The Cubs have played over 110 games at this point, so I still need to catch up a bit, but aside from a vacation coming up the last week of this month, I don’t have […]

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 […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 5

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 June gave us part 4. A month later and we have part 5. As a quick refresher, he responded to […]

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 […]

Back in Black

I know that yesterday I had a post announcing my annual return, but considering I actually think this could be for good… that probably warrants a second one.

Taking a look at my archives sidebar shows that over the past couple years, there have been long gaps between November and April with no posts, which […]
