2018 Cubs – Eleventh Ten Games

My little vacation, paired with the Gint-A-Cuffs posts, have put me a little farther behind on this adventure. By the time this goes up, The Cubs will have played 140 games or so. That’s three more of these posts. With each passing day, the series inches away from me. I’m bound and determined to get […]

Two Twitter Trades In One

I normally don’t do this, but I’m going to cover two trades in one post. I apologize in advance if either trader is disappointed in sharing the spotlight.

Twitter is becoming a more critical piece of my collecting experience. Most bloggers are on there, and I’m slowly building up the list of people I’m following. […]

Enter Sandman

Twitter is fun place for sports cards. Other things, not so much. I’m not as active on there as I might like to be, but I’m trying to get better. I’m also not very good at following people on there, so if you’re a blogger or reader and I don’t follow you, let me know […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 4

Very shortly, I’ll stop the three package rotation of trades I’ve been carrying on lately. I need to squeeze in some new trades that are trickling in, or recently arrived. I’m hoping that the sooner I can post the newer stuff, the more likely people will be to trade with me. Probably not how it […]

2017 NSCC #7 – Needles In A Haystack

The 2018 National is starting today and I will not be attending. Maybe I’ll go to Cleveland in a future year, but not this time. Further east seems like less of an option. I could drive to Ohio, but I don’t want to pay for a flight to go farther than that. The good news […]

Fighting a Losing Battle

Over the past couple months, I’ve been making a more concerted effort to get caught up on trade packages that I received over the past year (things got rough from Oct-Mar). I’m getting closer, but still several blog posts behind over three trade partners. That includes Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. I actually have two […]

2018 Cubs – Eighth Ten Games

The All-Star game is helping me get close to current with this series. We’re almost at 100 games for the season. Not too bad if I do say so myself. What was bad was the ten game stretch. We managed a whopping 4 wins. That’s the perfect way to follow the best stretch. Well, it […]

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 […]

Sammy Hits A Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A few months ago, I worked out a trade with Cubs Fan Stan (https://www.cubsfanstan.com/). He serendipitously discovered through a twitter post I made about my selling on Sportlots that I had stuff he needed for his Sammy Sosa collection. A little back and forth and I sent him some of the Stadium giveaway cards that […]
