2017 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I started to do this last year, but then gave up in July or so. I didn’t follow the team the second half of the year until the playoffs hit. However, this is a new year and the reason I stopped watching the Cubs signed with the Yankees in the off-season, so I’m more excited […]

International Museum of Surgical Science

I’ve been thinking about making this blog a little more personal, and talking not only about cards, but about various things that are happening in my life or stuff that I’ve done. I’ll still throw cards into the mix. They may not always fit the theme and may just serve as a break in segments, […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Kerry Wood Edition

The last time I did this kind of post (also the first time), it was fall of last year when I still had hopes that work wouldn’t suck my soul into the upside down. Now we’re in spring, so I can use the whole spring cleaning analogy. Hooray?

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging […]

Maddux Overload – 1998 Edition

1998.

The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.

The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]

The Post That Almost Was

(This post has been sitting in my draft folder since November. I never claimed to be timely here….)

When the Cubs were down 3 games to 1 against the Indians, I pretty much assumed we’d have to wait at least one more year for glory. I doubt I’m alone in that.

I don’t think […]

Another Non-National Card Show Post

I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.

More Older Birthday Cards

I said I had more birthday cards from past years, and I meant it. I have a bunch of them, including a few heavy hitters that I may share soon.

Tonight, I’m going to keep it nice and simple and finish up the Greg Maddux cards I got from COMC last year. I don’t usually […]

Birthday Cards From A Different Year

Ever since I’ve found my way back into collecting, I’ve tried to treat myself to some sort of cardboard birthday present. Sometimes it’s through boxes of cards, but the past couple years, I’ve gone on a single buying splurge on COMC.

This year, I don’t know if I’m going to buy anything. I still collect […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Greg Maddux Edition

Fall is upon us, and while the rodents are filing their cheeks getting ready for winter, I’m over here trying to get rid of some things. Hopefully soon this will translate into showing some trade bait on the blog, but for the time being I’m going to settle for cleaning up some of my collections […]

Gint-A-Cuffs VIII: Packs 19-24 – Last Hit(s)

I’ve waited long enough to close this out. 6 more packs. 1 more promised hit. Unknown chance for actually winning.

Let’s tally this up and see where the cards fall. (Please don’t let the cards fall. We don’t want dinged corners.)

Pack 19

Jacoby Ellsbury (-1 for signing a big deal with a big […]
