A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 7

I have a few newer trades that came through over the past couple weeks, which is great. Pretty soon, I’m hoping to get another round of trade bait out there to see what other stuff I can catch. I have a small trip coming up, but after that I’ll hopefully put things together for both […]

ROYGBIV – I’m Seeing Red

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 4

Very shortly, I’ll stop the three package rotation of trades I’ve been carrying on lately. I need to squeeze in some new trades that are trickling in, or recently arrived. I’m hoping that the sooner I can post the newer stuff, the more likely people will be to trade with me. Probably not how it […]

A Small Post

Well, it’s Ginter season again, which means chasing those minis is on everyone-who-cares-about-chasing-minis’ minds. For the player collection types like me, it means another round of variations to very slowly go after. It’s a daunting task and I certainly don’t bring in more than what are produced each year, so it’s also a losing battle […]

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 […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 2

I’m very, very close to being able to post trade bait again. I just need to update my want lists after a couple recent purchases and then I should be all set. No more trips coming up that I know of. No work crap slowing me down or taking away my nights and weekends. It’ll […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 1

It’s trade post time! Looking back, it’s surprising how many trades I’ve been able to complete this year with relatively little effort. What’s even better is that nearly all of the trades have been quite large, which means I need multiple posts to get through everything you fine people have been sending me.

After I […]

2018 Cubs – Third Ten Games

I’m temporarily back to the blog. After spending a week in London and Scotland, I got home Sunday night, picked up my dog from the parents on Monday and largely caught up on work today. I do want to talk about my trip in some detail, but I’m anxious to get something posted now. Hopefully […]

2017 NSCC #3 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Lester, Lackey, and Soler Edition

Alright, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything about the National, which isn’t good because I have a lot to cover still. The first two parts of the dimebox focused on what I’ve been calling the “legacy” collections. These next two are about the champs. Looking back, I’m actually surprised I didn’t find […]

Introducing the John Lackey Collection

This is part two of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]
