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 […]
