Some More Moments

There are some cards that are the bane of the collecting process. For some people, it may be those low numbered parallels. For others, it could be finding a good condition vintage card. Probably all of us struggle with needing cards that are way too pricey.

You would think that the Moments & Milestones cards […]

An Almost Timely Home Run Derby Post

Well, that was a fun derby!

I know there will be detractors for any and all formats of the event, but I personally like the timed format they’ve adopted over the 10 out structure. I do wish they would have equal AL and NL participants, but that’s more of a preference than anything. As long […]

2017 NSCC #1 – Hitting the Dimebox Hard – Thomas and Maddux Edition

The National Sports Collector’s Convention was held in Chicago several months ago, and it was the second one I was lucky enough to attend. My rookie year on 2015 was quite the adventure. I bought a lot of cards and was able to write about a small percentage of them. Thanks to a better financial […]

2017 Cubs – The Tenth 10 Games

Well, all good things have to come to an end, and so do the dumber things.

What I’m trying to say is that the 2017 season has been over for a while now and clearly time is an issue for me again, so there’s no need to draw this series out to the end. The […]

2017 Cubs – The Ninth 10 Games

Well, the season was fun while it lasted. The Cubs have officially been eliminated from the playoffs and while I’m writing this, game 7 of the AL NLCS is in progress (and I don’t plan to update it after it’s over).

With the season done, this series is just about done for this year. I’m […]

2017 Cubs – The Eighth 10 Games

Anyone ready for the NLCS tonight? Probably no one. I don’t know anyone that pays attention to baseball, after all.

Who can talk about the playoffs when we still need to talk about the games that got us there. So , basically at the half-way point of the season and the Cubs kept bouncing back […]

2017 Cubs – The Seventh 10 Games

Why, sure. I’ll keep this series going, even though I’m not even halfway through the season with it. I have no idea what was really going on with the team back then anymore, but I do remember we were struggling stay above .500. This was one of the better stretches with a whopping 6 wins […]

2017 Cubs – The Sixth 10 Games

Dang, I’m behind on this… Anyway, through the first 50 games, the Cubs managed an even 25-25 record. Over this next ten games, they continued that mediocrity and split them 5-5. It’s looking like a tough climb for the defending champs, but who knows. Nobody seems to be fully taking over the NL Central the […]

2017 Cubs – The Fifth 10 Games

I might as well keep the series going, right? I mean, it’s an excuse to show M&M cards after all. I sporadically watch the games but as I mentioned, the Russell thing bothers me so I’m less invested again. Anyway, they’ve played 40 more games after this batch. We’ll worry about that later (at least […]

2017 Cubs – The Fourth 10 Games

So, just like last year, I’ve fallen behind on these posts. Also, like last year, I’m becoming disillusioned with the Cubs in the middle of the year due to a player with an alleged domestic abuse in his history. Maybe I’ll talk about that more later, but even though I had started to collect Addison […]
