Trading For Former Cubs

I’m not great at thinking of titles, and I foolishly didn’t think of a good title to throw a “Part 1” after, like I’ve tried to do with others recently. So, now I’m sitting here brainstorming new titles for each set of cards from Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. To make matters worse, I didn’t […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 5

Back in late September, I posted the first part of a significant trade I made with Bill, then in April I got back on track and showed off part 2. May saw part 3, and June gave us part 4. A month later and we have part 5. As a quick refresher, he responded to […]

2018 Cubs – Seventh Ten Games

After giving us the best ten game stretch of the season, the team regressed a bit and went 5-5 in the next ten games. I’m pretty sure that at this point, we relinquished the division lead to the Brewers by the end of this and have not been able to take it back as of […]

Sammy Hits A Home Run Of A Trade For Me

A few months ago, I worked out a trade with Cubs Fan Stan (https://www.cubsfanstan.com/). He serendipitously discovered through a twitter post I made about my selling on Sportlots that I had stuff he needed for his Sammy Sosa collection. A little back and forth and I sent him some of the Stadium giveaway cards that […]

March 2018 Ebay Wins

With all my time away from home recently, I had let my new acquisitions pile up, unscanned. As far as Ebay stuff is concerned, I finally got around to logging them in my want lists and digitizing them for future posts through May.

March was a lighter month for me. Work was getting really busy […]

Documenting an Angel of a Trade – Part 2

I’m very, very close to being able to post trade bait again. I just need to update my want lists after a couple recent purchases and then I should be all set. No more trips coming up that I know of. No work crap slowing me down or taking away my nights and weekends. It’ll […]

Losing Track of My Trades

I’ll be honest. My organizational skills have improved in the near decade after starting the blog, but it’s still not perfect. Usually when cards come my way, I’ll keep them in separate stacks for scanning so I can label them appropriately with notes about where they came from. However, sometimes too many inbounds come my […]

February 2018 Ebay Wins

While I’m getting caught up on the Cubs schedule a bit, I’m farther behind on my monthly Ebay purchase breakdowns. I’ll get there. I just need to do more than one a month a few times and I’ll be there. Gotta take in fewer cards than I’m posting out. All easier said than done when […]

Introducing the Kyle Schwarber Collection

This is part four 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 […]
