National Catch-Up – Thomas Edition

Just like I did with Greg Maddux, and as I will do two more times after this, I am trying to use the looming NSCC as an excuse to show off some of the cards that I bought at my first National Convention back in 2015. I have a bunch of cards from 4 years […]

National Catch-Up – Maddux Edition

With the 2019 National fast approaching, I realized that I have some work to do. Not only do I have to make sure that my want lists are completely up to date (and accessible easily through my phone on the show floor without an internet connection), but I have to get my supplies and any […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 5 of 5

I have a couple trade irons in the fire and recently got a couple packages from people as well. I’ve been away for a couple weeks due to some work things and haven’t fully logged everything. I also need to get some return packages together when I can find a little bit of a chance. […]

Getting Ahead Of The Inevitable

Look, I know it’s coming. What’s the point in trying to deny it? There are times when I think I’m in the clear, but then when I least expect it…Blam!

Another trade package from Kerry, also known as Madding, also known as Cards on Cards arrives. It’s like he doesn’t even care that I’ve just […]

Starting To Sample My Latest Sportlots Order

A few months ago, I went on a little bit of a credit spending spree on Sportlots. I had (and still have) a good chunk of change in my account from selling over the years and not cashing out for far too long. I figured it was time to flesh out my collections a bit […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 4

You all know the deal by now. I try to figure out a way to introduce the same blogger and trade package after doing so a few times before. I post some links and then get into showing the cards.

So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his […]

There’s No Team In Sets

One of my favorite early day inserts where those player specific sets that Fleer/Leaf put out. I looked forward to seeing which player would be chosen for that special 10-card tribute. So many worthy names and so many ended up getting passed over because only one per series could get that honor.

These days, Topps […]

What Bowman Is Good For

Well, I think it’s safe to say that I missed the boat on Bowman-mania this year. And last year. And the year before. And….

No, I didn’t buy a single pack, and I’m certainly not going to spend extra money on packs that are priced above normal MSRP. I’ve never been the prospecting type and […]

Next Stop: A Trade From Last July

Alright, I got a nice chunk of trade bait up and depending on how well that’s received, I’m hoping to inject some different names in my recurring trade package posts. Very shortly, I plan to be more proactive in searching people’s want lists and coming to you as well. I do it on occasion with […]

Trade Bait – 2018 Donruss Optic

I’m back with another round of trade bait. Here’s the last one of this batch. This is the first week’s worth since announcing my Charity Trade policy. In short, I’m not giving away cards, but I am donating money to charity for every card that I receive in trade. If you want to indirectly help […]
