I’m back with what I hope will be a regular series. Did you miss the other installments? Well, you can either scroll down a couple posts or check out the “Trade Bait” link at the top of the blog. There’s a 1/1, some other low numbered parallels and a few good autos among others in [...]
Ebay can be a beautiful place sometimes. Sure, it can be the home of scam artists and price gougers, but so can virtually every marketplace. Sure, it may have single-handedly caused the devaluation of everyone’s baseball card collections, but that just means I can pick up a bunch of cards for my collection on the [...]
I guess birthday’s aren’t all that bad. As if my earlier post wasn’t proof enough, this year I got cold, hard cash. Cash that I used to by a few boxes of cards and a small smattering of singles.
Sure, I considered using the sudden windfall for a single spree, but I figured this would [...]
Hooray! The Not-Cardinals won the World Series!
You know what that means? It means another player I collect is a World Champion. That makes 3 out of 7 (although only up to 5 can potentially achieve it). Ryan Dempster pitched in only 1 game, and only 1 inning, and only gave up 1 run on [...]
I usually don’t advertise this type of thing on the blog, but this is my birthday weekend. I don’t advertise it, because I honestly don’t really care about my birthday. That’s not said to garner sympathy, it just stopped being important to me for whatever reason. I even sometimes forget about it.
Other people don’t [...]
Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.
Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and [...]
I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]
[The seventh in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my [...]
I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any cards for a while. I need to stop the unnecessary spending, cut back on my discretionary items, and focus on the material possessions I already have.
But, I broke.
I almost had to. When you come across a deal this good, you just have to dive [...]
Do you feel that?
There’s a very strange look to sky and something is definitely in the air.
Yeah…. Yeah, I think it’s going to rain. I think it’s about to start raining strikeouts on this blog pretty soon.
Kid K’s to be precise.
As in through 2 separate transactions, I added over 150 Kerry [...]
