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 […]

2018 Cubs – Seventh Ten Games

After giving us the best ten game stretch of the season, the team regressed a bit and went 5-5 in the next ten games. I’m pretty sure that at this point, we relinquished the division lead to the Brewers by the end of this and have not been able to take it back as of […]

March 2018 Ebay Wins

With all my time away from home recently, I had let my new acquisitions pile up, unscanned. As far as Ebay stuff is concerned, I finally got around to logging them in my want lists and digitizing them for future posts through May.

March was a lighter month for me. Work was getting really busy […]

2018 Cubs – Sixth Ten Games

I’m back home in Chicago after a long, emotionally draining trip. My stomach still hasn’t fully recovered, but I already feel my sleep schedule getting back in line. I don’t know how much I’m going to talk about my time in India after this. I do want to talk about my trip out to London […]

February 2018 Ebay Wins

While I’m getting caught up on the Cubs schedule a bit, I’m farther behind on my monthly Ebay purchase breakdowns. I’ll get there. I just need to do more than one a month a few times and I’ll be there. Gotta take in fewer cards than I’m posting out. All easier said than done when […]

2018 Cubs – Fifth Ten Games

I’m currently writing this after the Cubs finished their 70th game of the season. I’m trying to get caught up on things while still maintaining some variety in the blog. Also, as I’m writing this, I have another 1.5 weeks in India, and one of the few positives about it is that all the hotel […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 4

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 here we are in June for part 4. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen […]
