Trading To Fill In Some Junk Wax Gaps – Part 1

While I didn’t get a massive response to my trade bait posts (I do want to try again soon), I did come out of it with some success. I was also lucky enough to meet a couple new trade partners.

Of of those was John, known on the Trading Card Database as herkojerko (here’s his […]

Introducing the Justin Grimm Collection

This is part five 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 […]

Decidedly Not Red Cardboard – A Trade with Red Cardboard

My goodness does time fly. There are trades initiated in November of last year that I still haven’t posted on here yet. I’m sorry to anyone else who is still waiting for their cards and thanks to show their face. I’m a work in progress. The good news for me is that this will be […]

A Trade Four Years in the Making (Sort of)

Trade bait posts are a wonderful thing. Most of the time, they’ll get a response within the first week if they’re going to get any traction at all.

However, those posts stay active. They still exist. Even now. And on rare occasion, people will find those posts and inquire about trading for some of those […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 1

I’ve been holding off on posting some of my more recent trades here, but it’s really time I changed that. The main reason I did is that was the National. I put together some trade bait posts that attracted minimal attention, but at some point I had to lock down my want lists before the […]

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, […]

2017 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I started to do this last year, but then gave up in July or so. I didn’t follow the team the second half of the year until the playoffs hit. However, this is a new year and the reason I stopped watching the Cubs signed with the Yankees in the off-season, so I’m more excited […]

Another Non-National Card Show Post

I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.

More Older Birthday Cards

I said I had more birthday cards from past years, and I meant it. I have a bunch of them, including a few heavy hitters that I may share soon.

Tonight, I’m going to keep it nice and simple and finish up the Greg Maddux cards I got from COMC last year. I don’t usually […]

2016 Cubs – The Fourth 10 Games

Okay, now we’re slowing down. Not just blog wise. The Cubs only managed 5 wins in this batch of ten, which is the first without a winning record. That will make my job of catching up a little easier. Coming off a run of winning 9 of 10, going .500 isn’t too terrible. Maintaining our […]
