My Favorite Card of 2018

I’m sure most of you have heard by now that P-Town Tom from Waiting ‘Til Next Year is running a contest, and TIME IS RUNNING OUT, so follow that link! All you have to do is show off your favorite card in your collection from 2018.

I’m not usually one to enter contests because most […]

Tony Gwynn Is In The Club

Recently Topps sort of brought back the Members Only Club. You may have missed it, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you did. Basically they did an online offering to spend $200 and in return you get a few small sets across the 2019 season and some other “member” exclusives and autos. I considered joining, […]

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 […]

2018 Cubs – Sixteenth Ten Games (+4)

So we’ve come to the end. I’m going to have one more post on the 2018 season to recap the overall player of the game counts and do whatever else I want. That should be interesting to me and me alone. Honestly, I’m just excited that I was able to actually make it through this […]

August 2018 Ebay Wins

July was full of big acquisitions. Possibly too many. Overcompensating is a word that comes to mind. August wasn’t quite as big in terms of cards, but it still managed to be pretty dang nice as you’ll see. September, on the other hand, will be much lighter, but we’ll talk about that in a couple […]

A Few More Good Group Breaks

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off some of my group break take-aways. I don’t join a ton of them, and I really haven’t wanted to take the plunge on those guys who have breaking businesses. Maybe I will at some point, but I don’t like getting into the high-end stuff and really risking […]

Trade Bait – 2016 Stadium Club

Hey there! Take my cards! I have cards. You need cards.

What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 2 of 2

Welcome to part two of the July card auction explosion. I hope everyone enjoyed the first part. If you missed it, check out the link, because it was full of fun stuff including a rip card (spoiler!)

I’m going to keep the party going here and start off with another big card and end with […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 1 of 2

June was very light since I was hardly in the country. July, I kind of spoiled myself a bit. After that rough month where all kinds of things were going wrong, I did a little retail auction therapy. It also helped that I had a bit of extra money since I had no extra expenses […]

Trade Package To Be Named Later

With all the crazy MLB trade activity going on in July and August, you hear about that infamous Player to be Named Later thing. It’s a very common tactic among clubs to say that they’ll test drive the main attraction for a month or two and then decide how much he’s actually worth.

Greg, otherwise […]
