My Sportlots Goal – A Countdown Appears

I’ve been selling on Sportlots for quite a while now, and although I don’t push out a lot of cards each month and am nowhere near the top sellers, credit has slowly accumulated in my account to the tune of over $600 (again, over a few years).

I never bothered to cash out, which is […]

Catching A Random Package From Night Owl

It’s time for another “trade” post, everybody! I’ve been doing well in sticking with the one-every-three posts schedule. It’s really helped me get caught up. In fact, this package came in just last month! That’s some huge progress in my mind. Our favorite feathered friend, Night Owl sent me a care package that arrived shortly […]

Alright, Fine! Here Are Some Green Cards

I wasn’t going to do this today. I have a ROYGBIV rainbow series that I started and haven’t continued for a very stupid reason that my stupid mind can’t let go of. I’ll have green cards when I get to the letter G.

Besides, since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, just about every blog in the […]

Close to Caught Up With A Key Exception

Somehow, some way, I have virtually caught up on all my trade activities. There are a couple packages that arrived shortly before my surgery yet to be featured (4 of them in total), but otherwise, I’ve at least written one post on the rest. So, even though I have several multi-post trades to finish up, […]

January 2019 Ebay Wins

My December takeaways from Ebay were quite something. I found a card that I never saw on offer for 8 years, after all. After that high, January tended to be on the low side. I also decided to hold back a little bit, because I need to conserve money for now. The holidays were expensive. […]

Maddux Overload – 2001 Edition

2001.

The Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Giants to become NFL champions, which some people actually care about for whatever reason.

The Los Angeles Lakers win another title, this time against the ’76ers. Michael Jordan also un-retired again and joined the Wizards but it wasn’t enough to get me to watch basketball again. On […]

2019 Goals

Well, I guess this new year is here to stay. I’m not one to make resolutions, but it can’t hurt too much to make some attainable goals for the year. I’ve thought about several different areas of life and hobbies and I wanted to touch on all of them here. Let’s get started in no […]

Surviving The Polar Vortex

I’m sure we’ve all heard about the polar vortex that hid the midwest this week. I’ve been through a few harsh winters, a couple of them have damaged my home and I’m just hoping that I’m protected well enough now.

As I write this, it is only -11 degrees F with a wind chill of […]

Introducing the Pedro Strop Collection

This is part ten 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 […]

Not Jesting About This Mostly Retail Exclusive Trade

I think it may be about time to put up another round of trade bait. My second, and most recent wave, was a decent success. I also need to try to sell some bigger value cards (since those are tougher to trade). In short, I’m anxious to get stuff out of my house, but haven’t […]
