National Catch-Up – Thomas Edition

Just like I did with Greg Maddux, and as I will do two more times after this, I am trying to use the looming NSCC as an excuse to show off some of the cards that I bought at my first National Convention back in 2015. I have a bunch of cards from 4 years […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 5 of 5

I have a couple trade irons in the fire and recently got a couple packages from people as well. I’ve been away for a couple weeks due to some work things and haven’t fully logged everything. I also need to get some return packages together when I can find a little bit of a chance. […]

Introducing the Jason Hammel Collection

This is part thirteen 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 […]

March 2019 Ebay Wins

I’ve been falling behind on a lot of card stuff lately. I’ve been heavily investing my time in video games lately. A little over a year ago, I decided to take the plunge and collect all of the U.S. released Original Game Boy games. If you’re going to collect games, you might as well play […]

Getting Ahead Of The Inevitable

Look, I know it’s coming. What’s the point in trying to deny it? There are times when I think I’m in the clear, but then when I least expect it…Blam!

Another trade package from Kerry, also known as Madding, also known as Cards on Cards arrives. It’s like he doesn’t even care that I’ve just […]

Anniversary Cards

This week saw my 8th wedding anniversary come and go. My wife and I celebrated the actual day with little fanfare. We went out to eat at this 24-hour Mexican restaurant that we went to a lot when we first started dating, which was a complete departure from our usual tactic of finding a highly-rated […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 4

You all know the deal by now. I try to figure out a way to introduce the same blogger and trade package after doing so a few times before. I post some links and then get into showing the cards.

So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his […]

February 2019 Ebay Wins

Last year, I didn’t get around to posting my February ebay wins until June of that year. I’m a couple months ahead of that schedule now, but I’ve been slacking a bit as I work to get some trade bait stuff going again, which is just about done.

This month is a light one. I […]

ROYGBIV – Oranger

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 3

I’m happy with the progress I’ve been making with the blog lately. It’s surprising how frequently I’ve been able to write (haven’t been able to read all that much). I don’t know how long that will keep up, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. It’s hard to balance my hobbies, sometimes. It’s not a […]
