Last Year’s Birthday Cards

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.

These Are The Breaks

Before my finances got all out of whack and I had a steady stream of disposable income, I was able to take part in a couple cheap group breaks.

Now, normally, I give each of these their own post, but I’m not going to. Neither resulted in anything for my player collections anyway, so each [...]

No More Trades

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 [...]

Catching The Fever

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: [...]

Hit Parade

The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]

A Little Charity Work, Sort Of

Hopefully most of you are familiar with the concept of Box Buster Bingo (aka BoBuBingo).

It’s a game run by Crackin Wax (who you may remember from my product review back in October). He opens a box of cards and you follow along with a bingo card he created previously. If you get a Bingo, [...]

I Hope You Brought Frankincense And Myrrh

Because, I’m bringing the mutha effin’ gold, suckas!

Hopefully one of many hit leader-ings

Like this one, and a bunch more that you’re about to see.

I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were [...]

What Ryan Dempster’s Trade Means For My Collection

Finally, the answer to the question that’s been burning a whole in your unrelenting hearts is here.

When you heard the news that Ryan Dempster was traded to the Braves Dodgers Yankees??? Rangers, I’m sure the first thing that popped into your head was “What’s this going to mean for Jon’s Ryan Dempster collection? Doesn’t [...]

A Murder of Crows

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 [...]
