And that’s not me speaking in hyperbole to get a couple extra clicks, either. Will you agree? I guess we’ll find out in a few minutes.
Not too long ago, Dutch Card Guy and I worked out a trade for some of my Topps Minis. He was working on the set and I was able to [...]
One of the great things about trading is that you get to pad your binders will all kinds of wonderful new & old pieces of cardboard. One of the “bad” things about trading in the blog world is that they tend to come in waves, and an infrequent poster like myself falls desperately behind.
How about them holidays, huh? I hope everyone had a good and relaxing season.
You did? Great! Now get back to work!
The time to sit on your ass and enjoy doing nothing is over.
Grab a broom and help me clean up. No need to wait till spring. I got all kinds of folders [...]
When I say “small,” I don’t mean insignificant. Not by any means. Quite the opposite, actually. And when I say “Giant fan,” I don’t mean of us. No, no, no.

I actually have a little time to write up a post tonight! Before the ghost of Community Break Present sweeps us off on our journey tomorrow, the ghost of Community Break Past is here. This ghost isn’t going to tell us what things would be like if gimmicks and SPs never existed. He’s not smart [...]
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.

It’s that time of year again! To reward you all with sticking with the blog during out down spell (and we’re not quite out of the wood yet, but soon!), we’re bringing you a big ol’ patented COMMUNITY BREAK.
The past couple of years, I’ve held an All-Fleer break and an All-Topps break. This time, [...]
