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 […]

2017 NSCC #9 – I’m Still Dumb

A couple years ago, I outlined how terrible my memory is by showing cards I bought at the NSCC that I already owned (or that accidentally bought twice at the show). Well, it happened again. This time, it was on a larger scale since I had a bigger budget.

Still no real excuse for a […]

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 […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 2 of 2

Welcome to part two of the July card auction explosion. I hope everyone enjoyed the first part. If you missed it, check out the link, because it was full of fun stuff including a rip card (spoiler!)

I’m going to keep the party going here and start off with another big card and end with […]

2018 Cubs – Twelfth Ten Games

I know I just posted the 11th installment of this a couple days ago, but I really do want to stay on top of this season as much as possible. I recognize that no one reads these posts anyway, so this is all about my own personal piece of mind. The division race is starting […]

2018 Cubs – Tenth Ten Games

With this post, I am now tied for last year’s series length. I abandoned the 2017 version of this venture back in December. Yup, I didn’t get very far. Life was different back then.

I’ve been able to keep up with a couple of my regular series, for the most part, which is a nice […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 5

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill, then in April I got back on track and showed off part 2. May saw part 3, and June gave us part 4. A month later and we have part 5. As a quick refresher, he responded to […]
