The Green Bay Packers claim the Super Bowl title over the New England Patriots, and I’m sure the commercials were better than they would be a decade later.
The Bulls repeat for the second time in their history, by beating the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. Also, the Houston Comets win the first […]
My last National post was all about cards I had, but bought again because I’m a dumb piece of dumb that’s dumb in the head.
Today, I want to focus on the positive side of the doubles spectrum. What follows aren’t exactly duplicates, they’re parallels. It’s understandable that some dealers would have more than one […]
We Are Good.
It’s such a simple statement. Yet, it’s an accurate one. I’m not sure which Cubs player started using it, but I think it’s overtaken the “Let’s Go” motto that the marketing companies got paid a pile of cash to create as the victory cry this year. And we’re crying a lot.
The experience of going to the National will really prepare and inform future expectations of the show. Before going in, I had this weird mind set that basically anything would be available for the picking if you just looked in the right spot.
I had high hopes that I would make some really good progress […]
I know people are probably anxious to see posts recapping my adventure at the 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention, but that’s going to wait a bit longer as I organize more stuff. For now, here’s a package that basically feels like a mini-National.
Brian from Play at the Plate has always been a great supporter […]
How long has it been since we last left my gigantic trade with reader Fred. If you missed the first part, and I imagine at this point most of you did, check out that post here. When you’re done with that, the second part can be seen here.
To conclude this particular trade (we’ll catch […]
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 […]
I have a morals clause in my collecting.
Since I only collect players, I’ve tried to be selective about which guys I focus my attention and money chasing. The reasoning I use may only make sense to me sometimes, but in general I’m looking to collect players I can root for.
That means I do […]
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.
Other people don’t […]
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 […]
