Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 4

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link. If you missed part two…here. And three.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot of stuff. […]

2016 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I don’t know if this is going to be a regular thing or not, but I’m excited that baseball is back.

I’m more excited that the Cubs started off the season performing very well. 8 out of 10 ain’t bad. It’s actually really good. And it’s a great bonus that the other NL Central teams […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

Collecting Milestones

I recently updated my want lists for the first time in 5 months. It was both a cathartic and discouraging process.

Cathartic because I truly enjoy making and compiling my checklists. I’ve always liked making lists. By no means am I an organized person, but organizing things and hobbies into lists or sorting things hits […]

One Last Post Before The Breakin’ Begins

I actually have a little time to write up a post tonight! Before the ghost of Community Break Present sweeps us off on our journey tomorrow, the ghost of Community Break Past is here. This ghost isn’t going to tell us what things would be like if gimmicks and SPs never existed. He’s not smart […]

Sweet Sweet Sweeneys

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]

Employee Appreciation Day

So, how did you all do in your office cubicle mini-golf tournament?

What’s that? You mean you guys didn’t have an in-the-office putt-putt course set up for Employee Appreciation Day a couple Friday’s ago? What?? You haven’t heard of Employee Appreciation Day?

Truthfully, neither had I. I’ve been with that company for 7 years now, […]

Community Break Box #7: 2005 Fleer Showcase

Well, I’m said to say we’ve come to the end of the line of this Community Break. I hope everyone out there had as good a time watching as I did opening. But before we wrap this thing up officially, I have one more box to “showcase.” 2005 Fleer Showcase, that is.

How’d we […]

More Trade Post Catch-Up Featuring Rhubarb Runner

My second trade with Rhubarb Runner over at “e’ rayhahn, rayhahn” won’t be as cleverly written as the first, I’m afraid. You see, I’m getting desperately behind. There are a million things I want to be writing, but it’s getting down to crunch time for me. And I’m not just talking about the upcoming Community […]

The Fleer Group/Community Break is Now Open!

It is time, ladies and gentlemen! You helped create it, now you can finally obtain the cards you selected from the boxes that I get to open!

The Second Annual (?) Community Break is now open!

It’s going to be a big one, but it won’t be as expensive as you might think. But before […]
