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 […]

Back In The Good Days

This blog used to be cooler, and more interesting. We would have various different ideas for blog posts to hopefully keep the readers engaged. Or at least I thought we did. We also used to be a we. I think it’s safe to say that Andy is retired from the blog. But that’s not what […]

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 […]

Halls Well That Ends Well

When 2013 Topps came out, I went a little overboard. For a set that I have no intention of completing, I bought way too much. A blaster or a few packs to test the waters is one thing. Buying 3 blasters that basically costs the same as a hobby box is another.

The good news […]

Group Break Trading

Right around the same time that I held my All-Upper Deck group break, Ryan H of “O” No!!! Another Orioles Blog, was holding a smaller 3-box break. He came to me with the idea of trading. We’d swap open slots in our breaks (and I think he floated a couple bucks my way to cover […]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #4: 2003 Upper Deck Victory

Victory is mine! Er…I mean ours! Baseball cards: The CCG. It’s probably not the first time it was tried. And it certainly wasn’t the last time. And it may not have been the best time. But it…wait, what was my point?

Ah, who cares. Psuedo-cards!

New designs!

It’s worth mentioning each and every time, […]

All-Upper Deck Group Break Reminder. Great Teams As Low As $12 For 8 Boxes!

You can find all the details here for my upcoming Group Break (aka Community Break).

It’s coming up faster than you may think. I’m breaking the boxes wide open in less than a week, so I’d like to get more teams claimed and paid for before then.

I know the prices may seem high, […]

Working to Lift the Ban

Self-imposed bans are tough. Quite a while back, I mentioned that I was in desperate need of cleaning up my trade posts. In an effort to facilitate that, I decided that I wasn’t going to trade anything until I was all caught up.

Well, with my two month absence from the blog due to computer […]
