The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.
The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]
If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]
In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.
First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.

A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]

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 […]
I grew up around Antiques and knick-knacks. My parents weren’t just collectors, they were also antique dealers. That meant our basement was always full of “inventory” and I went to their booths in the antique mall, and wandered the halls quite often.
After I moved out, I’ve gotten out of that world for the most […]
