Card-ography #10 – Kerry Wood

For what’s supposed to be a quick and easy type of post to write, it sure did take a half year to get back to this series. How about we return with a bit of a bang? A semi-rare sighting of an autograph from one of my original player collections. I guess autographs are a […]

It’s Fine

I know that my previous post was a celebratory one, but I haven’t been doing great mentally the past couple days. I’ve touched on this before and at some point I’ll do a deeper dive on things as well, but there are times when I simply don’t want to continue with the blog. It’s always […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 3

I’m happy with the progress I’ve been making with the blog lately. It’s surprising how frequently I’ve been able to write (haven’t been able to read all that much). I don’t know how long that will keep up, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. It’s hard to balance my hobbies, sometimes. It’s not a […]

The Happiest Guy On Cardboard

Ha ha! Happy April Fool’s Day! You Fool!

Thrilled

This guy isn’t happy! He never smiles on his cards.

Hmm? Were you trying to tell a joke?

You fell for it! He won’t even smile when he’s on an All-Star team!

Die cut version

That’s not how you wear your baseball hat! […]

Let’s Talk About Physical Health

So, every once in a while I’ve taken to twitter to complain about my physical health situation, so I figured I’d give anyone who might care an update on here.

To take a bit of a step back in time, I’ve been having stomach issues for some time now. Since about October 2017, give or […]

2019 Goals

Well, I guess this new year is here to stay. I’m not one to make resolutions, but it can’t hurt too much to make some attainable goals for the year. I’ve thought about several different areas of life and hobbies and I wanted to touch on all of them here. Let’s get started in no […]

A Golden Trade With Reader Nate

I love posting trade bait, because it not only helps me get rid of some of my many unwanted cards, but it gives me an odd sense of accomplishment as well. It’s a time consuming process to scan, sort and list them all. Part of that process is also making sure I have them listed […]

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, […]
