No Trade Deadline Here

The MLB trading deadline has come and gone. Rosters have been expanded for a few weeks and we’re in the waning days of the regular season. But just because the actual teams can’t swap players doesn’t mean that collectors can’t swap cards of those players. There are no deadlines in hobbies. Occasionally there are temporary […]

2017 NSCC #6 – Sample Size Swatches

At the show, I expanded my budget a little bit. I put a little cash aside each month just for this show, which was thankfully easier due to paying off my car and credit cards a while back. That allowed me to spend more time in boxes that weren’t $1 or less, and expand my […]

Trading For Former Cubs

I’m not great at thinking of titles, and I foolishly didn’t think of a good title to throw a “Part 1” after, like I’ve tried to do with others recently. So, now I’m sitting here brainstorming new titles for each set of cards from Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. To make matters worse, I didn’t […]

Introducing the Chris Coghlan Collection

This is part three of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 3

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.

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 of stuff. So much […]

I Got Kobe Money

Actually, I had Kobe Money.

For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, I sold the second greatest card I’ve ever found in a pack of cards (the first has not been revealed, and would not go for as much money) about a year ago. It was a 1997/98 Kobe Bryant Skybox […]

The Henchmeister, Trading Some Cards.

Hench. The Henchmeister.

The Henchback of Notre Dame.

Turner and Hench.

Hench.

Sorry, I’m sure he gets that a lot, but I couldn’t resist. And yes, I copied the text you see when you roll over his link on our blog roll (if anyone even notices that exists), but that’s only because I’m not creative […]

A Kila Trade (Now With Pictures of Men!)

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]

Jon’s Christmas Haul

I hope everyone out there and a great, safe, action-packed, cardboard-packed, relic-packed, on-card auto-packed, pack-packed holiday season!

The presents are all unwrapped and the candy cane high is finally starting to wind down, so I think it’s about time that I showed off the goods that were waiting for me under the tree. Since this […]
