My Favorite Card of 2018

I’m sure most of you have heard by now that P-Town Tom from Waiting ‘Til Next Year is running a contest, and TIME IS RUNNING OUT, so follow that link! All you have to do is show off your favorite card in your collection from 2018.

I’m not usually one to enter contests because most […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 1

I’ve been lucky to have several trade partners this second half of the year. That second wave of trade bait worked better than I anticipated, to the point where I didn’t feel very prepared.

Clearly I’m not all that prepared to thank everyone quickly either, but hey, it’s something to work on in 2019. That […]

2018 Cubs – Best Players Of The Season

Alright, it’s time we wrap thing up for the season. As you may have seen, I was awarding a player of the game for each Cubs win. It was a sort of quick and certainly easy way to show off some additional cards from my collection. I enjoyed the exercise if only for the fact […]

Last Black Friday

I don’t do it every year, but most years I try to buy myself some boxes of cards as a Christmas present to myself. It all depends on budget, timing and the deals on offer. I also gravitate towards deals for products I haven’t opened at all. There are several sets where I don’t see […]

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 […]

Put It All On Black Backgrounds

I’m still working on my next color coded post. I just need to format a couple more orange parallels and then write stuff about each one. It’s going to take more time that it sounds, and so today, we’re going to look into the void.

Join me on a journey into the emptiness that represents […]

Jason HeyWardrobe

I’ve started to accumulate a lot of relic cards for my player collections. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my cutesy little series that I forget to diversify the card offerings here and show some of the non-ebay and non-trade stuff I’ve been snapping up over the years.

Since the season is over and […]

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 […]

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 […]
