Keep a close eye on this blog, because thanks to the fine folks over at Atlanta Sports Cards

we are back in the case breaking game. Wednesday should see the delivery of 5 Jumbo cases of 2014 Topps Series 1!

We’ll have a video break of one of the boxes (fingers crossed), plenty of [...]

Cards Upon Cards From Cards On Cards

I moved into my house about 8 months ago. At that time, there were a few people looking to send packages my way, but I wanted to wait until I got things semi-unpacked and I settled down.

Then I learned there was no such thing and let a couple know they could send away.

Madding [...]

It’s Not What You Think

Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.

Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and [...]

Almost There

I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]

Maddux Overload – 1994 Edition

1994.

The Dallas Cowboys handed the Buffalo Bills their 4th straight Super Bowl loss, earning their second consecutive win in the process.

The New York Rangers finally win a Stanley Cup after a 53-year long drought, then the NHL locked out its players.

George Foreman becomes the oldest ever heavyweight champion boxer.

Olypmic figure skaterNancy [...]

Deconstruction Of A Card – Jersey Relic Edition

Have you ever wondered how card companies get those little pieces of jerseys into their cards? Maybe you haven’t, but I know I have.

And I’m about to find out. Meet our victim.

Tough to see, but this is bent to hell. Look below the point on home base.

By the way, this isn’t [...]

My First 2013 Starlin Castro Cards

I’ve been kind of obsessing over my want lists lately.

It seems like each post is passive-aggressively commenting on the overwhelming amount of new cards being added to the want section while my highlighted “haves” stay put. It brings my whole average down.

Like Starlin Castro batting average down. Let’s just say that we’ve both [...]

Moving Backwards

It’s not hard to feel like you’re moving backwards in this hobby sometimes. A new set or two gets released in rapid fire and your want lists suddenly explode, all while you’re still trying (unsuccessfully) to tread water on the last couple sets.

Blogging can be like that, too. You start to make progress with [...]

Collecting Milestones

I recently updated my want lists for the first time in 5 months. It was both a cathartic and discouraging process.

Cathartic because I truly enjoy making and compiling my checklists. I’ve always liked making lists. By no means am I an organized person, but organizing things and hobbies into lists or sorting things hits [...]

Moving Right Along

A simple phrase that can mean so many things. In April, when I started this draft, I initially intended it to talk about the progress I was making moving into our new house.

I could write about the flurry of moves the Cubs have made recently. Tonight saw Matt Garza go, but prior to that, [...]
