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 […]
Ever since I’ve found my way back into collecting, I’ve tried to treat myself to some sort of cardboard birthday present. Sometimes it’s through boxes of cards, but the past couple years, I’ve gone on a single buying splurge on COMC.
This year, I don’t know if I’m going to buy anything. I still collect […]
I might be taking quite a few moments. Because there are so many, I actively hunt these cards out and have amassed a decent amount. This particular grouping is part of a large lot from 2011 that helped kick off this adventure. It contained 40 different cards and I’m positive I paid quite a bit […]
The blog has been silent for a little while once again. Part of the reason for the lack of activity was that I went on a little vacation. I flew down to Atlanta to visit my brother and attend Dragon Con for the first time. Then I came back home and relaxed for the rest […]
I’ve waited long enough to close this out. 6 more packs. 1 more promised hit. Unknown chance for actually winning.
Let’s tally this up and see where the cards fall. (Please don’t let the cards fall. We don’t want dinged corners.)
Jacoby Ellsbury (-1 for signing a big deal with a big […]
The 2016 National Sports Collectors Convention is happening next weekend. I won’t get to go this year. It’s in Atlantic City and I’m not anywhere near there and my travel days are pretty much booked.
Plus Lollapalooza is always that same weekend and I am very near there and my wife bought tickets for Sunday. […]
There’s a new trend in card manufacturing, and quite frankly it scares me a little bit.
This season, Topps introduced a new product called Topps Now. This would not be a retail or hobby release, but instead an online exclusive with a very limited window. Each day, Topps would take events or milestones from the […]
I don’t pay much attention to how much I’ve paid for my collection. That’s not to say that I’ve been throwing money in the wind. I’m actually quite frugal and pass up a lot of needs because someone asks a few cents more than I’m willing to spend.
What I mean is that I don’t […]
This weekend I went to a card show for the first time since attending the NSCC. It’s a monthly show down in Orland Park, which is a bit of a drive for me. I’ve never made it out to this venue, but I’ve been itching to search some bins and it’s advertised as 70 Tables […]
Congratulations to Jake Arrieta on his second career no-hitter! It’s extremely fun to watch that guy pitch these days. I don’t know how long this run will last, but it doesn’t look like it will slow down anytime soon. He is continuing his domination and it’s great to have a virtually guaranteed win every fifth […]
