An Almost Timely Home Run Derby Post

Well, that was a fun derby!

I know there will be detractors for any and all formats of the event, but I personally like the timed format they’ve adopted over the 10 out structure. I do wish they would have equal AL and NL participants, but that’s more of a preference than anything. As long […]

Trade Bait – 2017 Diamond Kings

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 willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster. Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific […]

Introducing the Kyle Schwarber Collection

This is part four 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 […]

2018 Cubs – Second Ten Games

Baseball season is no longer in its infancy. We’re already in the toddler stages and at close to thirty games played, teams are starting to show us what they’ll be when they grow up. Stepping back to the first 20 games, the Cubs have shown that there’s still quite a bit of development left.

May 2017 Ebay Wins

I know that some people don’t use ebay as part of their collecting adventures, and I sometimes envy those people. It can be a fickle and frustrating process at times, but I find it to be a pretty necessary.

Trading is fantastic (and I’m finally trying to do more of it). Card shows are a […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 4 of 5)

Welcome to the second to last part of my initial Check Out My Cards purchase. If you’re just joining us, you can find the other parts of the countdown here, here, and here.

I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which will be split into […]

Next Year(‘s Cards) Is Here

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Cubs. Even though in 2014 we finished last in the NL Central, somehow Vegas stared the year projecting us as one of the favorites to win the World Series. Granted, this team has been quite a bit better, but I think it’s possibly a tiny bit too […]

Buckle Up. It’s A Long Road

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a week, maybe what you’re about to see will explain it. You’re going to be treated to a very short introduction this time, because I’m writing 3,000 words or so overall on this doozy of a trade. Things like this take time you know.

The cards below […]
