Trading With A Cheesy Ginter Fiend

I’m not very good at keeping up with blogs. I know what my problem is, but right now there’s no good solution in place. But, there was a little stretch in there when I was able to read a lot and also comment. Then things started happening again and I’ve fallen out of the loop. […]

A Hot Dog Of A Trade – Part 1 of 2

Time to check in with a name that should be familiar to recent frequent readers of the blog. Bill, known as minibbcards on the Trading Card Database (his want list is found here) sent me a huge stack of cards earlier in my World Series Cubs pursuit, and I was able to turn that into […]

2018 Cubs – Sixteenth Ten Games (+4)

So we’ve come to the end. I’m going to have one more post on the 2018 season to recap the overall player of the game counts and do whatever else I want. That should be interesting to me and me alone. Honestly, I’m just excited that I was able to actually make it through this […]

A Quick Trade With Reader Tim

I’m feeling a little writer’s block here, so I’m going to make this short. I’ve been making some progress on my sticker albums recently. I’m not sure what’s spurred this interest, but I’m happy to oblige. I try to spam my want lists as much as it’s relevant to do so. Maybe it’s having more […]

September 2018 Ebay Wins

Blog activity has been really light lately. I’m sorry about that. I’m not sure if I’m going to explain why I’ve been away, but maybe. It’s worth talking about, but I just don’t know if and when that might actually happen.

So, instead, I’ll just run through my September Ebay wins. It feels like it’s […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 6 of 6

This is only my second post in October. Maybe I’ll get into why that is another time. All I’ll really say is that I’m now even farther behind on everything. I’ve mentioned it before, but I have a couple newer trades that still have not been showcased, and more new trades have come in the […]

2018 Cubs – Fifteenth Ten Games

Sshhh! Don’t spoil the ending!

Young Lackey subbing for Quintana

Win #84 – Quintana – On this day, he went 6.2 innings, giving up only 3 hits, 0 runs, and 2 walks with 7 Ks. Jose didn’t have an amazing year, but he was better than what people gave him credit for. The ERA […]

August 2018 Ebay Wins

July was full of big acquisitions. Possibly too many. Overcompensating is a word that comes to mind. August wasn’t quite as big in terms of cards, but it still managed to be pretty dang nice as you’ll see. September, on the other hand, will be much lighter, but we’ll talk about that in a couple […]

No Trade Deadline Here

The MLB trading deadline has come and gone. Rosters have been expanded for a few weeks and we’re in the waning days of the regular season. But just because the actual teams can’t swap players doesn’t mean that collectors can’t swap cards of those players. There are no deadlines in hobbies. Occasionally there are temporary […]

A Few More Good Group Breaks

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off some of my group break take-aways. I don’t join a ton of them, and I really haven’t wanted to take the plunge on those guys who have breaking businesses. Maybe I will at some point, but I don’t like getting into the high-end stuff and really risking […]
