Maddux Overload – 1998 Edition

1998.

The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.

The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]

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 […]

Maddux Overload – 1996 Edition

1996.

The Dallas Cowboys won their third championship in 4 years (and haven’t won since).

Chicago, and Michael Jordan, returns to the NBA Finals to win their 4th title. This capped the record-breaking 72-10 season.

Devastation struck Atlanta when a bomb went off during the Summer Olympic games.

Stefi Graf, again, is one major away […]

Forgot to Set My Watch, Man

Look, I ain’t no Harper Lee, but it sure feels like I’ve been making Cards on Cards wait a long time for the sequel to our trade post. For a refresher, here’s the first section with the oh so clever title. That post covered my other player collections. This one will be all Gwynn all […]

For the Greater Wood – Part 3

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 […]

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 […]

All For Naught #2

Our blog was down for who knows how long for who knows why after I posted the first of these. Here’s hoping the same fate doesn’t befall round two.

If you missed the first part, and don’t feel like going back, just know that I’m very grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of bloggers and […]

Juuust About Caught Up

There have been a lot of trade posts on here recently. Don’t worry, they’re going to slow down soon. I’m juuust about caught up with my trade posts. Then the no-trading ban will be lifted and all will be right with the world again.

How many of you remember my Topps Community Break from a […]

Topps Community Break Box #7: 2001 Topps Gallery

We’ve already passed the half-way mark. It’s kind of sad, isn’t it? Makes me want to start up another break against my better judgment (and financial abilities).

While National Chicle was far from a resounding success, I can’t think of a single collector that didn’t like Topps Gallery. Like any art form, it has evolved […]

All-Topps Community Break Sign-Up Is Now Open!!

I’ve teased it long enough. It’s finally time.

This is going to be the biggest Break I’ve ever done and it still won’t break the bank for you. How does 11 boxes covering 10 products throughout 8 years sound? The break is going to be all Topps all the time, but not in the way […]
