April 2018 Ebay Wins

In my March post, I mentioned how that month has been historically difficult for me due to work concerns. That’s the big deadline we work toward each year, and it becomes an all-hands on deck, don’t plan anything during nights and weekends affair.

April, on the other hand, is a lot more free. For me […]

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 […]

February 2018 Ebay Wins

While I’m getting caught up on the Cubs schedule a bit, I’m farther behind on my monthly Ebay purchase breakdowns. I’ll get there. I just need to do more than one a month a few times and I’ll be there. Gotta take in fewer cards than I’m posting out. All easier said than done when […]

2017 NSCC #4 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Heyward, Fowler, and Montero Edition

Here we are at the end of the dimebox glory. It’s probably no surprise that names like Bryant and Rizzo are absent from the titles. Maybe someday soon they will be, but there’s too much of a new player shine on them still. But, if Gwynn, Maddux and Thomas are in there now, with recent […]

December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 1

November may have been a lighter month, but December made up for it. As you can tell from the title, I’ll need a second part to get through it all. It’s interesting to look back and see how this all shakes out. I can try to speculate as to why I find more on certain […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 3

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. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen trade bait posts and we worked out a nice, large exchange – mostly […]

October 2017 Ebay Wins

Another month, another round of saved searches bearing gifts that I bought for myself. This was my birthday month, but I didn’t expand my budget. Even so, I wound up with quite a few good cards at a reasonable price. I have several months backlogged, so let’s just get into it.

Introducing the Dexter Fowler Collection

This is a series I’ve thought about doing for a little while. Those that read the blog with moderate consistency will know that I am collecting most of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 2

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen trade bait posts and we worked out a nice, large exchange – mostly for my budding 2016 WS champ players. Far too many cards for one, […]

August 2017 and First Part of September 2017 Ebay Wins

Okay, I’m a few months behind on this now. August was a lighter month for me. I wouldn’t say I took a break from Ebay, but I was a little more discerning. I was coming off of the National, so the vast majority of my card budget was already well-spent. I needed to stay focused […]
