Road To Opening Day

Baseball season is fast approaching. So fast, in fact, that the first game was actually played last night/this morning in Japan. The excitement that many feel with spring training is sure to quickly devolve into despair with the first 2-game losing streak of your favorite team. But, until then, anything can happen! This is the […]

Alright, Fine! Here Are Some Green Cards

I wasn’t going to do this today. I have a ROYGBIV rainbow series that I started and haven’t continued for a very stupid reason that my stupid mind can’t let go of. I’ll have green cards when I get to the letter G.

Besides, since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, just about every blog in the […]

Some Stuff From Boxes I’ve Bought In The Past

Sometimes I have grand ideas for my time. Well, maybe “grand” is the wrong word. I have ideas for how I want to spend my time and what I would do with the blog. Most of them really don’t ever pan out.

I don’t want to say I’m lazy, but the best way to keep […]

No Purchase Necessary

In my previous post, I talked about some of the different ways one can go about purchasing cards as part of my trademark lazy openings (psst, you’re reading another one right now). Buying stuff is all well and good, but have you tried this thing called barter?

I’ve dabbled here and there. Over the past […]

Trading With A Cheesy Ginter Fiend

I’m not very good at keeping up with blogs. I know what my problem is, but right now there’s no good solution in place. But, there was a little stretch in there when I was able to read a lot and also comment. Then things started happening again and I’ve fallen out of the loop. […]

Put It All On Black Backgrounds

I’m still working on my next color coded post. I just need to format a couple more orange parallels and then write stuff about each one. It’s going to take more time that it sounds, and so today, we’re going to look into the void.

Join me on a journey into the emptiness that represents […]

Card-ography #8 – Carl Edwards Jr.

Today’s subject has had some ups and downs with the Cubs. There are a lot of stretches where he is dominant and then some longer than expected stretches where he can’t get a dang out. No matter what, it is safe to say that he’s cemented his role in the major leagues as a reliever […]

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, […]
