Maddux Overload – 2002 Edition

2002.

The New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams for their first NFL championship shortly after the tragic events of 9/11, so a lot of people put extra meaning on that team winning, but I’ll let you decide if it was warranted.

The Los Angeles Lakers win their third straight title, this time against […]

How Many Maddux Relics

I’m not the first to be inspired by The Chronicles of Fuji, and I won’t be the last. However, I will probably be the only to be inspired by this specific post where he said he had collected an impressive 70 Greg Maddux relics so far.

As a fellow Maddux collector, it got me wondering […]

Older Birthday Cards

Every year I try to buy myself a card related birthday present. Sometimes, it’s boxes of cards so I can scratch the ripping itch. Other times, I’ve gone on a COMC binge to pick up a bunch of low cost additions. That’s what I did this year, and I went a little crazy with it […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 5 of 5

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link. If you missed part two…here. And three. And four.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot […]

SPx-cial Trade

It’s not uncommon for trades to contain a bunch of cards from the same sets. If you’re a team collector, it probably happens to you all the time. Heck, my upcoming trade bait is going to be set based, so I hope I’ll be sending out a lot of those packages to you.

I’d also […]

2016 Cubs – The Second 10 Games

I had fun putting together the first of these posts, so why not make it regular feature? If nothing else, it’s another excuse to show more random cards.

I’m behind due to vacation, and getting caught up with work after vacation and then getting sick after vacation, so I don’t remember everything that happened during […]

Maddux Overload – 1997 Edition

1997.

The Green Bay Packers claim the Super Bowl title over the New England Patriots, and I’m sure the commercials were better than they would be a decade later.

The Bulls repeat for the second time in their history, by beating the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. Also, the Houston Comets win the first […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

2015 NSCC #6 – Seeing Multiples

My last National post was all about cards I had, but bought again because I’m a dumb piece of dumb that’s dumb in the head.

Today, I want to focus on the positive side of the doubles spectrum. What follows aren’t exactly duplicates, they’re parallels. It’s understandable that some dealers would have more than one […]

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 […]
