Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 3

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.

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 of stuff. So much […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]

Digital De-Cluttering – Kerry Wood Edition

The last time I did this kind of post (also the first time), it was fall of last year when I still had hopes that work wouldn’t suck my soul into the upside down. Now we’re in spring, so I can use the whole spring cleaning analogy. Hooray?

Throughout my years of collecting and blogging […]

Maddux Overload – 1998 Edition

1998.

The Green Bay Packers fail to repeat as champions, losing to the Denver Broncos.

The Bulls once again beat the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals to earn their 6th title in 8 years. The Jazz were the only team the Bulls faced twice in the finals during that run. Also, the Houston Comets […]

Back From Vacation – Unpacking Some Clothes

The blog has been silent for a little while once again. Part of the reason for the lack of activity was that I went on a little vacation. I flew down to Atlanta to visit my brother and attend Dragon Con for the first time. Then I came back home and relaxed for the rest […]

Mad(dux) Men

Don Draper ain’t got nothing on the cardboard industry. Actually, the folks at Sterling Cooper, etc. etc. are much better at placing ads than card companies. Corporations will throw ads into everything. Billboards. Guerrilla Marketing. Product Placement. Promoted Content. Commercials for one product that also has other products in it.

I actually found it kind […]

2016 Cubs – The Fourth 10 Games

Okay, now we’re slowing down. Not just blog wise. The Cubs only managed 5 wins in this batch of ten, which is the first without a winning record. That will make my job of catching up a little easier. Coming off a run of winning 9 of 10, going .500 isn’t too terrible. Maintaining our […]

Award Winner? He IS the Award!

You probably heard this already, but right before the All-Star Game Major League Baseball announced that it was renaming the batting championship trophies for each league.

On the American League side, players will receive the Rod Carew Trophy, a man who ended his career with a .328 average and 7-time batting champion. That news generated […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]

Maddux Overload – 1997 Edition

1997.

The Green Bay Packers claim the Super Bowl title over the New England Patriots, and I’m sure the commercials were better than they would be a decade later.

The Bulls repeat for the second time in their history, by beating the Utah Jazz in the NBA Finals. Also, the Houston Comets win the first […]
