2016 Cubs – The First 10 Games

I don’t know if this is going to be a regular thing or not, but I’m excited that baseball is back.

I’m more excited that the Cubs started off the season performing very well. 8 out of 10 ain’t bad. It’s actually really good. And it’s a great bonus that the other NL Central teams […]

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

These Are The Breaks

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 […]

Topps Community Break Box #10: 2004 Topps Total

What a promising crop of cover boys down there. I feel like that’s the perfect analogy for Topps Total.

If you didn't have a card for you team before, you do now!

It’s worth mentioning each and every time, all of these boxes are courtesy of our good friends and Community Break Sponsor: BASEBALL […]

All-Topps Community Break Sign-Up Is Now Open!!

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 […]

Topps Total(ly On-Card)

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]

All I Need Is A Title

I try to take my blogging seriously. Yes, you see what I hope are jokes sprinkled throughout, but those just prove that I’m seriously trying to keep it entertaining for you all. And because I want the blog to be good, I study the greats of the business and try to learn what makes their […]

My Frank Thomas and Tony Gwynn Collections Have Officially Started

You can find the links to the spreadsheets listing which cards I have and need at this link right here.

I should also mention that my Kerry Wood list is also up there. I didn’t put him in the title, because the title was too long to begin with, and AdamE didn’t send me any […]

One Good Break Deserves Another

Just so we’re clear, the “One Good Break” is the group break Colbey (flywheels) held quite a while back ago. He’s since held two more (of which, I participated in one as partial payment for my break — that rundown will be coming to the blog eventually). The “Another” is hopefully my recent breaks.

The […]

2002 Topps Total Baseball Review

Topps Total, Topps Total, Topps Total. Bring back Topps Total. Why won’t they bring back Topps Total. I’ve heard it from bloggers over and over lately. I figured it was time to see what all the hype was about. This was a product I didn’t know existed until I started reading blogs. It came […]
