Still Stuck On A Trade From 2017

I’m at the point now where I want to start building up some more trade bait for the blog so I can get new packages coming in, since I’m so close to giving credit to all the packages that have come in. I just need a little time and motivation to actually work on that […]

Road To Opening Day

Baseball season is fast approaching. So fast, in fact, that the first game was actually played last night/this morning in Japan. The excitement that many feel with spring training is sure to quickly devolve into despair with the first 2-game losing streak of your favorite team. But, until then, anything can happen! This is the […]

Introducing the Kyle Hendricks Collection

This is part eleven 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 […]

January 2019 Ebay Wins

My December takeaways from Ebay were quite something. I found a card that I never saw on offer for 8 years, after all. After that high, January tended to be on the low side. I also decided to hold back a little bit, because I need to conserve money for now. The holidays were expensive. […]

Hall of Fame Dream Team

Sorry in advance, because the title of this post is not going to match what you thought you were going to get.

I rarely remember my dreams. It’s extremely common that I will dream something and then as soon as I open my eyes, it’s gone from my memory. For the past year or so, […]

December 2018 Ebay Wins

How in the world did I end up buying so many cards on ebay with holiday gift giving front and center? Simple: I’m a selfish guy, and I like to shop for myself. These past few months have been not so great overall, which I’ve talked about to some degree on here and in sporadic […]

Some Stuff From Boxes I’ve Bought In The Past

Sometimes I have grand ideas for my time. Well, maybe “grand” is the wrong word. I have ideas for how I want to spend my time and what I would do with the blog. Most of them really don’t ever pan out.

I don’t want to say I’m lazy, but the best way to keep […]

Easy To Remember Sticker Trade

This may end up being my last post of the year – it’s tough to find the time to write with all this holiday stuff going on. There’s also a small chance this is my last post ever. WordPress desperately wants to update my blog, and I’m sure it’s way past due. The problem is […]

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 […]

October 2018 Ebay Wins

I almost didn’t get this past month’s haul posted this month. Part of this is I’ve had several nights of being out with the wife, or having people visit or whatever else, but the other part is that I was waiting a couple weeks for my last October purchase to arrive.

Late PWE arrival
