Andy and I just took in a Cubs game together. The Cubs defeated the reigning champion Giants 4-3, but not after some come-to-be-expected drama from the Cubs bullpen.
We entered the 9th inning leading 2-0 thanks to solo homers by David DeJesus (which the announcer pronounced Da-Hey-Juice) and Starlin “Still No Walks” Castro. You may [...]
Not for a while at least. I have some packages due to Cards on Cards and Cardboard Junkie, and I’ll be sure to send some stuff off to them, but after that I’m going to go on a self-imposed hiatus.
It’s not anything to do with my impending move, either. Well, partly, I guess. Really [...]
We’re just about a week away from baseball’s opening day.
It’s a wonderful time of the year. Spring is starting to rear it’s pretty little head. New baseball cards start coming out faster than a Vin Diesel driven car. Hope and optimism is in every fan’s head.
The future is now.
But sometimes before you [...]
Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a case of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects last year as well.)

The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]

Hopefully one of many hit leader-ings
Like this one, and a bunch more that you’re about to see.
I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were players [...]
There have been a lot of trade posts on here recently. Don’t worry, they’re going to slow down soon. I’m juuust about caught up with my trade posts. Then the no-trading ban will be lifted and all will be right with the world again.
How many of you remember my Topps Community Break from a [...]
Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a case of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects – highlights forthcoming after it’s opened.)
Since Bowman is all about the [...]
Keep watching this space, because on Sunday I’ll be unveiling something that will keep this blog occupied for some time starting in late October. Once that starts up, I won’t want to stop everything to wedge in a trade post.
Luckily, I have no qualms about squeezing one more in before the announcement. Then I’m [...]
