Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.

First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.

The kid […]

So We Meet A-Gwynn

We’ve been down this road before.

It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.

But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.

It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction […]

Maddux Overload – 1993 Edition

All I Need Is A Title

I try to take my blogging seriously. Yes, you see what I hope are jokes sprinkled throughout, but those just prove that I’m seriously trying to keep it entertaining for you all. And because I want the blog to be good, I study the greats of the business and try to learn what makes their […]

“Quick” Trade Post Before We Bust Lineage Wide Open

No time to sugar coat it. Let’s just call it what it is: A trade post.

I’ve already shown a few of the cards I got from good friend of the blog Hiflew from Cards from the Quarry. You can find those sprinkled throughout my All-Star Team post, back when I had a brief bout […]

I Bought A Repack Box

There. I said it. I’m not necessarily proud of it, but we’ve all been there.

I bought this in a particularly down time in my collecting life. I was on the hunt for some new NBA Sticker hotness (find my want/trade list on my trade page) and again had come up empty. I needed to […]

My Frank Thomas and Tony Gwynn Collections Have Officially Started

You can find the links to the spreadsheets listing which cards I have and need at this link right here.

I should also mention that my Kerry Wood list is also up there. I didn’t put him in the title, because the title was too long to begin with, and AdamE didn’t send me any […]

One Good Break Deserves Another

Just so we’re clear, the “One Good Break” is the group break Colbey (flywheels) held quite a while back ago. He’s since held two more (of which, I participated in one as partial payment for my break — that rundown will be coming to the blog eventually). The “Another” is hopefully my recent breaks.

The […]

A Peach of a Trade With Rhubarb Runner

I’m so far behind on posting trades on here.

“How behind are you?”

I’m so far behind that I’ve already completed a second trade with Rhubarb Runner from everyone’s favorite fake Latin phrased card blog “e’ rayhahn, rayhahn.”

Okay, I’m no Johnny Carson, but it feels like Carson could have gone through 2 or 3 […]
