Trade Bait – 2018 Diamond Kings

I’m back with another round of trade bait. This is the first week’s worth since announcing my Charity Trade policy. In short, I’m not giving away cards, but I am donating money to charity for every card that I receive in trade. If you want to indirectly help the charity of my choosing, take a […]

Trading To Fill In Some Junk Wax Gaps – Part 4 of 4

I think I’m just about ready to start soliciting new trades again. The surgery sidelined me for a bit, and then other personal stuff kept me off the sidelines even further, but very soon I think I’ll be able to make something happen, and I have an exciting idea to announce with that to possibly […]

Introducing the Jon Lester Collection

This is part twelve of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections 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 players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

Maddux Overload – 2002 Edition

2002.

The New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams for their first NFL championship shortly after the tragic events of 9/11, so a lot of people put extra meaning on that team winning, but I’ll let you decide if it was warranted.

The Los Angeles Lakers win their third straight title, this time against […]

The Happiest Guy On Cardboard

Ha ha! Happy April Fool’s Day! You Fool!

Thrilled

This guy isn’t happy! He never smiles on his cards.

Hmm? Were you trying to tell a joke?

You fell for it! He won’t even smile when he’s on an All-Star team!

Die cut version

That’s not how you wear your baseball hat! […]

A Big Hurt Health Update

Okay, I’m at least partially back. I had my gall bladder removed on 2/27, and I’m finally ready to have my laptop on my lap again. Having the weight on my legs isn’t the trouble, neither is carrying it up and down the stairs. The main problem is that weird movements cause pain and so […]

2018 Cubs – Fourteenth Ten Games

Yeah, I’m back to this already. I understand that these aren’t the most compelling posts, but it’s a good way to show off some cards without actually thinking of a coherent theme. I’m happy I’ve gotten this far into the project and I want to get up to date so I can see it through.

2018 Cubs – Thirteenth Ten Games

Having 7 straight days of trade bait means I’m slipping behind on this task again. We’re past the 150 game mark and the race is still tense as I write this. Hopefully there is a little more separation by the time this goes live.

For games 121-130, there was a small 3 game losing streak […]

Trade Bait – 2016 Diamond Kings

Day 4 of 7 in another week long trade bait party. Keep coming back and claiming through comments on each post and we’ll finalize after day 7 is done.

Hey there! Take my cards! I have cards. You need cards.

What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m […]

2018 Cubs – Twelfth Ten Games

I know I just posted the 11th installment of this a couple days ago, but I really do want to stay on top of this season as much as possible. I recognize that no one reads these posts anyway, so this is all about my own personal piece of mind. The division race is starting […]
