A Golden Trade With Reader Nate

I love posting trade bait, because it not only helps me get rid of some of my many unwanted cards, but it gives me an odd sense of accomplishment as well. It’s a time consuming process to scan, sort and list them all. Part of that process is also making sure I have them listed […]

October 2018 Ebay Wins

I almost didn’t get this past month’s haul posted this month. Part of this is I’ve had several nights of being out with the wife, or having people visit or whatever else, but the other part is that I was waiting a couple weeks for my last October purchase to arrive.

Late PWE arrival

I’ve Seen This Before

Whether you like it or not (and the answer is probably not), reprints are a part of the hobby these days and they don’t show signs of leaving anytime soon.

It’s understandable that card companies want to celebrate their history and take advantage of what’s already well known to potentially draw interest. I imagine it […]

2018 Cubs – Best Players Of The Season

Alright, it’s time we wrap thing up for the season. As you may have seen, I was awarding a player of the game for each Cubs win. It was a sort of quick and certainly easy way to show off some additional cards from my collection. I enjoyed the exercise if only for the fact […]

Last Black Friday

I don’t do it every year, but most years I try to buy myself some boxes of cards as a Christmas present to myself. It all depends on budget, timing and the deals on offer. I also gravitate towards deals for products I haven’t opened at all. There are several sets where I don’t see […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
