December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 2

Yesterday, I showed off the first part of my December wins. It’s pretty rare for me to get the part 2 of anything up so quickly, but I checked and there were only 4 more cards to end the month and the year. I also wanted to just get it out of the way now, […]

December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 1

November may have been a lighter month, but December made up for it. As you can tell from the title, I’ll need a second part to get through it all. It’s interesting to look back and see how this all shakes out. I can try to speculate as to why I find more on certain […]

October 2017 Ebay Wins

Another month, another round of saved searches bearing gifts that I bought for myself. This was my birthday month, but I didn’t expand my budget. Even so, I wound up with quite a few good cards at a reasonable price. I have several months backlogged, so let’s just get into it.

Second Part of September 2017 Ebay Wins

September was a busy card buying month. So much so, that I had to split this up into two parts. If you missed the first batch (along with the much lighter August), go ahead and click here. Otherwise, join me on this buying adventure recap. I’m sort of trying the Uno thing again too, at […]

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 […]

Unparalleled Trade Partner, Multi-Parallel Trade

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 […]

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 […]

Batting .457 – I’ll Buy That For A Dollar

Ebay can be a beautiful place sometimes. Sure, it can be the home of scam artists and price gougers, but so can virtually every marketplace. Sure, it may have single-handedly caused the devaluation of everyone’s baseball card collections, but that just means I can pick up a bunch of cards for my collection on the […]

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 […]

Record Breaking Trade With The Record Keeper

When you think of a “true” card collector, what do you think of? What’s the criteria that pops into your mind?

Everyone collects in their own way, but that word “true” adds a certain qualifier that not everyone can meet. Perhaps to you it’s similar to a super collector. Maybe their collection is vast and […]
