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 […]

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, […]

June 2018 Ebay Wins

June was a bad month. I don’t really want to talk about June. I was rarely home. Bad things happened. It was a mess and a dark time.

Being overseas, I didn’t want to look at stuff to buy. I didn’t want to expose my paypal to any foreign IPs, etc. So, it was a […]

Blog Bat Around: My Cardboard Bucket List

I’ve done a horrible job of keeping up with other people’s blogs. The past 3-4 years was due to work. Now that I have free time again, I’m playing a lot of catch up with my hobbies. I tend to focus my efforts on writing my own blog, or toying around with my movie reviews […]

April 2018 Ebay Wins

In my March post, I mentioned how that month has been historically difficult for me due to work concerns. That’s the big deadline we work toward each year, and it becomes an all-hands on deck, don’t plan anything during nights and weekends affair.

April, on the other hand, is a lot more free. For me […]

2017 NSCC #6 – Sample Size Swatches

At the show, I expanded my budget a little bit. I put a little cash aside each month just for this show, which was thankfully easier due to paying off my car and credit cards a while back. That allowed me to spend more time in boxes that weren’t $1 or less, and expand my […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 3 of 3

Alright. Two months have passed since the last installment of this trade package. I really need to get better about staying up to date on these things. Anyway, as a quick recap, these are from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout. If you want to revisit part 1, it is available to you right here. Part 2 […]

December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 2

Yesterday, I showed off the first part of my December wins. It’s pretty rare for me to get the part 2 of anything up so quickly, but I checked and there were only 4 more cards to end the month and the year. I also wanted to just get it out of the way now, […]

Back to the Dugout – Part 2

Welcome back! Here we are at part 2 of what I think should be a three-part series, showcasing the goods I acquired from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout. Part 1 is available to you right here. That time, I shared the Maddux and Thomas cards from the trade. Today will be all of the Gwynns and […]
