Trading With A Cheesy Ginter Fiend

I’m not very good at keeping up with blogs. I know what my problem is, but right now there’s no good solution in place. But, there was a little stretch in there when I was able to read a lot and also comment. Then things started happening again and I’ve fallen out of the loop. […]

A Hot Dog Of A Trade – Part 1 of 2

Time to check in with a name that should be familiar to recent frequent readers of the blog. Bill, known as minibbcards on the Trading Card Database (his want list is found here) sent me a huge stack of cards earlier in my World Series Cubs pursuit, and I was able to turn that into […]

Put It All On Black Backgrounds

I’m still working on my next color coded post. I just need to format a couple more orange parallels and then write stuff about each one. It’s going to take more time that it sounds, and so today, we’re going to look into the void.

Join me on a journey into the emptiness that represents […]

Introducing the David Ross Collection

This is part eight 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 […]

2018 Cubs – Sixteenth Ten Games (+4)

So we’ve come to the end. I’m going to have one more post on the 2018 season to recap the overall player of the game counts and do whatever else I want. That should be interesting to me and me alone. Honestly, I’m just excited that I was able to actually make it through this […]

2018 Cubs – Fourteenth Ten Games

Yeah, I’m back to this already. I understand that these aren’t the most compelling posts, but it’s a good way to show off some cards without actually thinking of a coherent theme. I’m happy I’ve gotten this far into the project and I want to get up to date so I can see it through.

Trade Bait – 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter

Day 5 of 7 in another week long trade bait party. Keep coming back and claiming through comments on each post and we’ll finalize after day 7 is done.

Hey there! Take my cards! I have cards. You need cards.

What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m […]

A Huge Collecting Benchmark

You know, when you start a player collection or a team collection, you never really plan to actually finish it. Sets can be finished. Retro player collections can be finished. Modern stuff is nearly impossible.

Of course, it helps to impose some restrictions. That’s why I don’t collect anything that has a print run lower […]

Trade Package To Be Named Later

With all the crazy MLB trade activity going on in July and August, you hear about that infamous Player to be Named Later thing. It’s a very common tactic among clubs to say that they’ll test drive the main attraction for a month or two and then decide how much he’s actually worth.

Greg, otherwise […]

Gint-A-Cuffs X: Packs 17-24

This is it. The last third. One hit within 8 packs and hopefully some other unknown treasures that will boost the score even more (updated total so far is 86). Let’s see some Cubs.

Pack 17

Rodriguez Fantasy Goldmine (+2 insert)

I can’t say I care about Fantasy sports. Nor do I care […]
