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 […]

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. […]

Surviving The Polar Vortex

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the polar vortex that hid the midwest this week. I’ve been through a few harsh winters, a couple of them have damaged my home and I’m just hoping that I’m protected well enough now.

As I write this, it is only -11 degrees F with a wind chill of […]

Stick and Trade, Stick and Trade Again

I love trading for stickers. These are some of the easiest transactions I ever make. Back in the heyday of the blog, I would have random parents reaching out to me to help complete their kids’ albums. That hasn’t happened in a while, but as long as progress is being made overall, I’m happy.

Not Jesting About This Mostly Retail Exclusive Trade

I think it may be about time to put up another round of trade bait. My second, and most recent wave, was a decent success. I also need to try to sell some bigger value cards (since those are tougher to trade). In short, I’m anxious to get stuff out of my house, but haven’t […]

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 […]

Another Cheesy Ginter Trade Slice

It doesn’t feel like two months have passed, but that is just about how much time has elapsed between showing off the first 2018 trade I conducted with Chris of Nachos Grande fame and this second one.

I’m relatively positive that the gap between our two trades being finalized was shorter. This second transaction was […]

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 […]

November 2018 Ebay Wins

Happy Holidays everybody. It’s that time of year where giving is more important than receiving and money is spent on other people in the great name of CONSUMERISM rather than on yourself in the great name of CONSUMERISM. Grow that economy. Spend, spend, spend.

I’m doing my part. Uncle Sam needs you.

My brain is […]
