2015 NSCC #9 – Preparing for 2017

I’m very much itching to get back to the National and I finally bought my tickets. It’s been hit or miss as to whether or not I would be able to get there, but as of now, I’m going to make it.

Work was (and still is) the biggest obstacle. I requested the days off, […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Kerry Wood Edition

The last time I did this kind of post (also the first time), it was fall of last year when I still had hopes that work wouldn’t suck my soul into the upside down. Now we’re in spring, so I can use the whole spring cleaning analogy. Hooray?

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging […]

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

Forgot to Set My Watch, Man

Look, I ain’t no Harper Lee, but it sure feels like I’ve been making Cards on Cards wait a long time for the sequel to our trade post. For a refresher, here’s the first section with the oh so clever title. That post covered my other player collections. This one will be all Gwynn all […]

For the Greater Wood – Part 2

Alright, I’m back with the second installment of my giant trade with Fred. If you missed the first part, check out that post here. There’s some pretty fascinating stuff in there. Of course, there’s some fascinating stuff down here too.

The first round was mostly 1997 & 1998 cards with a couple ’99s sprinkled in. […]
