By the looks of it, many of you already know about the site Got It. Got It. Need It., but I’m late to the party.
I just posted a little bit of trade bait, and a couple of you have responded already. If I wanted, I could use this excellent resource to be more proactive. [...]
It’s a phrase we’ll hear many times throughout our lives. Most of the time the way it’s uttered is riddled with cliche. It’s small talk. You could be discussing something as mundane as your weekend plans on a Wednesday and that co-worker chimes in “Good things come to those who wait.”
Right. Thanks for that.
Hey look! There are two people who post on this blog! My name’s Andy. We may have met. I’m the one who annoys you with Royals autograph posts and less funny captions than Jon. I’m also the one prone to fits of months without posts, one of which just ended. It’s a shame, really, because [...]
No new resolutions for me this year.
I know it’s the middle of March, but I never went on the record when most of you were talking about such things. You can all exhale now.
There are two key reasons as to why I’m not setting collecting goals for 2012. One is a lack of [...]
(Post title inspired by the above song – which I argue is the best song on the entire Black Album. Thought about writing some parody lyrics, but that might be stupid, so I didn’t. Anyway, we now return to our regularly scheduled programme: “Gomme communautaire” - Community Gum)

I didn’t follow it as closely as I normally would have, because we’re [...]
The year sure does move fast, doesn’t it?
It feels like just yesterday that Series 1 came out.
Has it really been more than 2 months since our last contest? Part of that is we stopped getting boxes from Panini for whatever reason, but we can still think of something.
It’s been almost three months [...]
Do you ever get that adrenaline rush coursing through your body right before something’s going to go down? It could be a car accident. It could be people moshing a little too roughly at a concert. It could be an unexpected meeting with the boss. Your body is psyching yourself up for confrontation. It’s screaming [...]
…is currently up for auction on Ebay.
The year: 1997. My collecting days were beginning to wind down. I was 16 or 17 years old, and the work force’s call had to be answered. Normally, you would think that money from a job would mean more money for cards, but alas this was not to [...]
Well, it’s official. After a year of getting my collection whittled down and in order, I’m prepared to launch into a new stage of collecting. As a kid, I was a set collector. Sure, I jumped at trades for any and every Sandberg, Grace, Dawson, Canseco and McGwire cards I could get my hands on, [...]
