2018 Cubs – Third Ten Games

I’m temporarily back to the blog. After spending a week in London and Scotland, I got home Sunday night, picked up my dog from the parents on Monday and largely caught up on work today. I do want to talk about my trip in some detail, but I’m anxious to get something posted now. Hopefully […]

A Warming Trade for an Annoying Cold

These past couple of days, I’ve been sick with a fun little cold, or flu (never really sure which). My wife had a friend visit us and I had to tuck away and isolate myself to avoid infecting either of them. That also meant I couldn’t join on the fun stuff they had planned. I […]

Introducing the Dexter Fowler Collection

This is a series I’ve thought about doing for a little while. Those that read the blog with moderate consistency will know that I am collecting most 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 […]

Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

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.

The kid […]

A Quick Trade Post Diversion

Before my involuntary hiatus, I made quite a few trades. I’m still not sure if I’m fully ready to start up the trading again, even though I’d love to, so for now I’ll have to make due with posting these older trades from over a year ago. Take this trade with Red Sox Fan in […]

Ginter? I barely knower!

Hey, remember how I still have a bunch of 18 month old trades to post? I do. The great Nachos Grande sent me some stuff a long time ago in exchange for some of the Topps online die cut thingies. The dude loves to trade, and he’s a great trade partner. You should all help […]

Next Year(‘s Cards) Is Here

There is a lot of hype surrounding the Cubs. Even though in 2014 we finished last in the NL Central, somehow Vegas stared the year projecting us as one of the favorites to win the World Series. Granted, this team has been quite a bit better, but I think it’s possibly a tiny bit too […]

People Still Make Trade Posts, Right?

One of the side effects of being away from the blog for over a year is that when you go back to trade posts, you completely forget what the trade was or what you sent.

That’s just a side effect. I don’t really care what I sent over. If the cards were that important to […]

It’s Not What You Think

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 […]
