Second post in a row with a preamble. You may have noticed that there’s no blogroll on the side anymore. We did some wordpress updating and moved our hosting and it didn’t port over. I’m slowly working to find a good plugin to create a new blogroll, and hope to have it back up shortly.
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 [...]
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 [...]
I’m sure all of us have been in a budget crunch situation multiple times in our lives. It’s only natural to see cash ebb as well as flow. I’m in the middle of an “ebb” cycle, and I’m expecting to stay firmly there until at least after the holidays.

If yesterday was bread and water, then today is the salad?
Okay, I could probably force my way through this analogy over the next 9 boxes but no one wants to see that and I don’t want to write it.
Instead, I’ll just say that next up is a product line that lasted much longer [...]
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 [...]
What’s that? GQ stands for something else? Gypsy Queen, you say? Hmmm, I guess that means this is another GQ trade post… and another half-assed introductory paragraph.
Brian over at the prolific Play at the Plate (over 1000 posts? Really? We’re almost at 350…in a year and a half of writing), contacted me about a [...]
