Maddux Overload – 1999 Edition

1999.

The Denver Broncos repeat as NFL champions, taking out the Atlanta Falcons.

The San Antonio Spurs take advantage of a Jordan-less NBA and deny the New York Knicks a championship. On the WNBA side, the Houston Comets continue to dominate with their third straight title (also over New York).

Michael Johnson set a new […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 5 of 5

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link. If you missed part two…here. And three. And four.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot […]

2016 Cubs – The Second 10 Games

I had fun putting together the first of these posts, so why not make it regular feature? If nothing else, it’s another excuse to show more random cards.

I’m behind due to vacation, and getting caught up with work after vacation and then getting sick after vacation, so I don’t remember everything that happened during […]

Still Undeserved

A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]

Forgot to Set My Watch, Man

For the Greater Wood – Part 3

How long has it been since we last left my gigantic trade with reader Fred. If you missed the first part, and I imagine at this point most of you did, check out that post here. When you’re done with that, the second part can be seen here.

To conclude this particular trade (we’ll catch […]

Getting My Folders Organized

All of us have different ways to organize our respective collections.

You may sort by player, by team, by year, by set, by number, by picture quality, by uniform number, or any combination of those. You may put your cards in shoeboxes, card boxes, binders, toploaders, safes, or who knows what.

But chances are if […]

Why Who Wins the MVP Doesn’t Matter

Let’s compare something shall we?

McDonald's was a little early with the label

Frank Thomas – Two Time MVP Award Winner

2 MVP awards means 2 pictures

Versus

Not so fast, 80s graphic!

Tony Gwynn – Zero-Time MVP Award Winner

I know these two were never in direct competition for the award, […]

All For Naught

It doesn’t happen too often, but occasionally bloggers will get cards out of the blue. Typically we’re not those guys. There’s usually a reason for us receiving something from somebody. And speaking just for myself, I’m fine with that. I get so wrapped up in the various aspects of my life that I can’t spend […]
