Stickers From Near and Far

It took me a few months to get my act together but I’m finally posting the last/most recent packages I’ve received this year so far. I needed to buckle down and actually scan and log them, and that took me longer to do than it would a normal person. Either way, for now after this, […]

Stick and Trade, Stick and Trade Again

I love trading for stickers. These are some of the easiest transactions I ever make. Back in the heyday of the blog, I would have random parents reaching out to me to help complete their kids’ albums. That hasn’t happened in a while, but as long as progress is being made overall, I’m happy.

Easy To Remember Sticker Trade

This may end up being my last post of the year – it’s tough to find the time to write with all this holiday stuff going on. There’s also a small chance this is my last post ever. WordPress desperately wants to update my blog, and I’m sure it’s way past due. The problem is […]

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 […]

A Quick Trade With Reader Tim

I’m feeling a little writer’s block here, so I’m going to make this short. I’ve been making some progress on my sticker albums recently. I’m not sure what’s spurred this interest, but I’m happy to oblige. I try to spam my want lists as much as it’s relevant to do so. Maybe it’s having more […]

Enter Sandman

Twitter is fun place for sports cards. Other things, not so much. I’m not as active on there as I might like to be, but I’m trying to get better. I’m also not very good at following people on there, so if you’re a blogger or reader and I don’t follow you, let me know […]

Blog Bat Around: My Cardboard Bucket List

I’ve done a horrible job of keeping up with other people’s blogs. The past 3-4 years was due to work. Now that I have free time again, I’m playing a lot of catch up with my hobbies. I tend to focus my efforts on writing my own blog, or toying around with my movie reviews […]

A Small Post

Well, it’s Ginter season again, which means chasing those minis is on everyone-who-cares-about-chasing-minis’ minds. For the player collection types like me, it means another round of variations to very slowly go after. It’s a daunting task and I certainly don’t bring in more than what are produced each year, so it’s also a losing battle […]

Suggestions to Improve the Topps MLB Sticker Album

I’ve been buying and collecting the Topps MLB sticker albums ever since their return to shelves in 2011 (but I haven’t completed one since 2012 – help me out by looking here and trading!). Usually it’s a fun diversion and a little bit of a nostalgia trip as I’m reminded of growing up in the […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]
