What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster. Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific […]

2015 NSCC #8 – Relic the Opportunity

The 2016 National Sports Collectors Convention is happening next weekend. I won’t get to go this year. It’s in Atlantic City and I’m not anywhere near there and my travel days are pretty much booked.

Plus Lollapalooza is always that same weekend and I am very near there and my wife bought tickets for Sunday. […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]

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 […]

Undeserved

I know I’ve been questioning whether or not to continue the blog, but I can unquestioningly say that I’ve been extremely lucky with the bloggers and readers I’ve “met.” It’s a great community, and I highly recommend it to people that have the time. I’m very sorry that I haven’t for a while.

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 4 of 5)

Welcome to the second to last part of my initial Check Out My Cards purchase. If you’re just joining us, you can find the other parts of the countdown here, here, and here.

I bought a total of 85 serially numbered cards as a Christmas present to myself in 2013, which will be split into […]

Ginter? I barely knower!

Hey, remember how I still have a bunch of 18 month old trades to post? I do. The great Nachos Grande sent me some stuff a long time ago in exchange for some of the Topps online die cut thingies. The dude loves to trade, and he’s a great trade partner. You should all help […]

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 […]

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 1 of 5)

I’m not much of a supporter of COMC. I don’t intend to ever sell on their website, because I find the fee structure to be insanely difficult to rationalize. I understand the reason for it, considering their vast infrastructure, but when a 1990 Topps common has to be sold for $0.35 (.25 of which going […]
