I usually don’t advertise this type of thing on the blog, but this is my birthday weekend. I don’t advertise it, because I honestly don’t really care about my birthday. That’s not said to garner sympathy, it just stopped being important to me for whatever reason. I even sometimes forget about it.
Other people don’t [...]
Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.
Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and [...]
I’ve been kind of obsessing over my want lists lately.
It seems like each post is passive-aggressively commenting on the overwhelming amount of new cards being added to the want section while my highlighted “haves” stay put. It brings my whole average down.
Like Starlin Castro batting average down. Let’s just say that we’ve both [...]
Sure, I know it’s Labor Day, but I’ve never been on time with things. Besides, I didn’t get any cards for Labor Day. Double besides, I labored plenty on that last post. That lengthy sucker took about a week to put together. Triple besides, when else would I have the opportunity to show off these [...]
And that’s not me speaking in hyperbole to get a couple extra clicks, either. Will you agree? I guess we’ll find out in a few minutes.
Not too long ago, Dutch Card Guy and I worked out a trade for some of my Topps Minis. He was working on the set and I was able [...]
Not for a while at least. I have some packages due to Cards on Cards and Cardboard Junkie, and I’ll be sure to send some stuff off to them, but after that I’m going to go on a self-imposed hiatus.
It’s not anything to do with my impending move, either. Well, partly, I guess. Really [...]
How many of you have been able to watch any of the World Baseball Classic? I’ve caught a few innings here and there. Any baseball is good baseball. I could take or leave spring training in terms of “seeing young talent prove themselves.” The only important aspect that applies to the regular season is “Injured: [...]
We’re only a week or two removed from the biggest dog show of the year. Banana Joe the Affenpinscher took away Best in Show. Now he gets to make the rounds in the media and across the country to various other smaller dog shows.
Sort of like the one that’s happening in Chicago this weekend. [...]
My “In Defense Of” post garnered quite a bit of attention for the site. Chris Olds and Susan Lulgjuraj from Beckett, VOTC – c0-host of Cardboard Connection Radio, a couple card blogs and various twitterers all picked up on the article and helped promote and discuss the issue.
When all was said and done we [...]
In my most recent post, I sung the praises of the #TwitterTrade. Well…second verse, same as the first.
This time, I’m talking about Charles, aka @SWLVGUY. He’s another must-follow on there. Not only is he a great trader, as you’re about to see, but also a fantastic twitter ambassador for the hobby.
Oh, and he [...]
