Sammy Hits A Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A few months ago, I worked out a trade with Cubs Fan Stan (https://www.cubsfanstan.com/). He serendipitously discovered through a twitter post I made about my selling on Sportlots that I had stuff he needed for his Sammy Sosa collection. A little back and forth and I sent him some of the Stadium giveaway cards that […]

Trade Bait – 2017 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 willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster. Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 2

I’m very, very close to being able to post trade bait again. I just need to update my want lists after a couple recent purchases and then I should be all set. No more trips coming up that I know of. No work crap slowing me down or taking away my nights and weekends. It’ll […]

Top O’ The Box To Ya

One of the most annoying things about collecting, in my opinion, is dealing with the non-standard card sizes. I’ve expressed my displeasure of minis in the past, but rarely do I get to talk about the oversize stuff.

That’s because I haven’t been actively seeking the oversized cards for quite some time. When I went […]

2018 Cubs – Fifth Ten Games

I’m currently writing this after the Cubs finished their 70th game of the season. I’m trying to get caught up on things while still maintaining some variety in the blog. Also, as I’m writing this, I have another 1.5 weeks in India, and one of the few positives about it is that all the hotel […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 4

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill, then in April I got back on track and showed off part 2. May saw part 3, and here we are in June for part 4. As a quick refresher, he responded to some of my Gypsy Queen […]

January 2018 Ebay Wins

Well, this will be quick. After a larger December, the first month of this year only saw two new cards come in the mail. Things will slowly pick up from here for a bit until about now where I’m stalled buying cards due to travel. I’m really itching to relax and open packs, so when […]

2018 Cubs – Second Ten Games

Baseball season is no longer in its infancy. We’re already in the toddler stages and at close to thirty games played, teams are starting to show us what they’ll be when they grow up. Stepping back to the first 20 games, the Cubs have shown that there’s still quite a bit of development left.

I […]

A Response to “A Sheltered Life”

Last year, during one of those times where I could find a moment to read other people’s blogs, I found myself reading Night Owl (as we all do, I’m sure). He had an Anthony Rizzo relic pulled from a blaster and was gracious enough to trade it to me.

Back in September of last year, […]

Second Part of September 2017 Ebay Wins

September was a busy card buying month. So much so, that I had to split this up into two parts. If you missed the first batch (along with the much lighter August), go ahead and click here. Otherwise, join me on this buying adventure recap. I’m sort of trying the Uno thing again too, at […]
