A Quick, Hot Trade

There was a little bit of a winter lull, but recently, I’ve been getting a few packages in my mailbox from you kind people. That means I need to be even more diligent in getting caught up with my existing backlog of trades. I’m getting closer, if you don’t count all of those multi-post trades […]

2019 Goals

Well, I guess this new year is here to stay. I’m not one to make resolutions, but it can’t hurt too much to make some attainable goals for the year. I’ve thought about several different areas of life and hobbies and I wanted to touch on all of them here. Let’s get started in no […]

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 […]

Introducing the Pedro Strop Collection

This is part ten 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 […]

Hall of Fame Dream Team

Sorry in advance, because the title of this post is not going to match what you thought you were going to get.

I rarely remember my dreams. It’s extremely common that I will dream something and then as soon as I open my eyes, it’s gone from my memory. For the past year or so, […]

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 […]

The Cycle Continues

I just took some time off from blogging to update my 30+ player collection want lists. With so many products coming out from Topps, Panini and random other stuff from Leaf and possibly others (ITG, Baseball Treasures, ???), it has become completely untenable to stay up to date and add new sets as they arrive.

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 […]

Introducing the Albert Almora Collection

This is part nine 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 […]
