August 2018 Ebay Wins

July was full of big acquisitions. Possibly too many. Overcompensating is a word that comes to mind. August wasn’t quite as big in terms of cards, but it still managed to be pretty dang nice as you’ll see. September, on the other hand, will be much lighter, but we’ll talk about that in a couple […]

July 2018 Ebay Wins – Part 1 of 2

June was very light since I was hardly in the country. July, I kind of spoiled myself a bit. After that rough month where all kinds of things were going wrong, I did a little retail auction therapy. It also helped that I had a bit of extra money since I had no extra expenses […]

May 2018 Ebay Wins

After the massive month that was April, I had to take things a little easier. Aside from ebay, I also went on a huge tax money fueled binge on COMC and used a portion of my Sportlots credit I’ve built up over several years to buy stuff. So, a lot of time also was spent […]

Maddux Overload – 2000 Edition

The Los Angeles Lakers come back into the championship fold, giving Kobe his first title over the Pacers. On the WNBA side, the Houston Comets continue to dominate with their fourth […]

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 […]
