Maddux Overload – 2001 Edition

2001.

The Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Giants to become NFL champions, which some people actually care about for whatever reason.

The Los Angeles Lakers win another title, this time against the ’76ers. Michael Jordan also un-retired again and joined the Wizards but it wasn’t enough to get me to watch basketball again. On […]

Some Stuff From Boxes I’ve Bought In The Past

Sometimes I have grand ideas for my time. Well, maybe “grand” is the wrong word. I have ideas for how I want to spend my time and what I would do with the blog. Most of them really don’t ever pan out.

I don’t want to say I’m lazy, but the best way to keep […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 1

I’ve been lucky to have several trade partners this second half of the year. That second wave of trade bait worked better than I anticipated, to the point where I didn’t feel very prepared.

Clearly I’m not all that prepared to thank everyone quickly either, but hey, it’s something to work on in 2019. That […]

2018 Cubs – Best Players Of The Season

Alright, it’s time we wrap thing up for the season. As you may have seen, I was awarding a player of the game for each Cubs win. It was a sort of quick and certainly easy way to show off some additional cards from my collection. I enjoyed the exercise if only for the fact […]

Trading With A Cheesy Ginter Fiend

I’m not very good at keeping up with blogs. I know what my problem is, but right now there’s no good solution in place. But, there was a little stretch in there when I was able to read a lot and also comment. Then things started happening again and I’ve fallen out of the loop. […]

Introducing the David Ross Collection

This is part eight of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

Jason HeyWardrobe

I’ve started to accumulate a lot of relic cards for my player collections. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my cutesy little series that I forget to diversify the card offerings here and show some of the non-ebay and non-trade stuff I’ve been snapping up over the years.

Since the season is over and […]

September 2018 Ebay Wins

Blog activity has been really light lately. I’m sorry about that. I’m not sure if I’m going to explain why I’ve been away, but maybe. It’s worth talking about, but I just don’t know if and when that might actually happen.

So, instead, I’ll just run through my September Ebay wins. It feels like it’s […]

2018 Cubs – Fifteenth Ten Games

Sshhh! Don’t spoil the ending!

Young Lackey subbing for Quintana

Win #84 – Quintana – On this day, he went 6.2 innings, giving up only 3 hits, 0 runs, and 2 walks with 7 Ks. Jose didn’t have an amazing year, but he was better than what people gave him credit for. The ERA […]

A Few More Good Group Breaks

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off some of my group break take-aways. I don’t join a ton of them, and I really haven’t wanted to take the plunge on those guys who have breaking businesses. Maybe I will at some point, but I don’t like getting into the high-end stuff and really risking […]
