Before we get into the post, I want to make an announcement/request.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND PACKAGES TO THE ADDRESS YOU HAVE FOR ME UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
If you have something we’ve talked about, leave a comment or email me before sending it but, barring some sabotage, I will be closing on a house this [...]
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 any [...]
While everyone’s busy posting away with their brand new shiny, special 2013 Topps cards, some of us realize that there are other equally viable collecting subjects. What’s wrong with older cards? What’s wrong with talking about a 1986 Donruss card for instance?
I mean, it’s not like we’re journalists. Why do we have to write [...]
In my most recent post, I sung the praises of the #TwitterTrade. Well…second verse, same as the first.
This time, I’m talking about Charles, aka @SWLVGUY. He’s another must-follow on there. Not only is he a great trader, as you’re about to see, but also a fantastic twitter ambassador for the hobby.

How about them holidays, huh? I hope everyone had a good and relaxing season.

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 [...]
The good news is that I’m back. I have a new laptop to replace my randomly shutting down desktop and I think it’s all set up to handle what I need it to do. I also am 2 weeks into my new job working from home. I currently have tons and tons of extra time [...]
Finally, the answer to the question that’s been burning a whole in your unrelenting hearts is here.
When you heard the news that Ryan Dempster was traded to the Braves Dodgers Yankees??? Rangers, I’m sure the first thing that popped into your head was “What’s this going to mean for Jon’s Ryan Dempster collection? Doesn’t [...]
Our blog was down for who knows how long for who knows why after I posted the first of these. Here’s hoping the same fate doesn’t befall round two.
If you missed the first part, and don’t feel like going back, just know that I’m very grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of bloggers and [...]
Still want to punch that smug face
Extry! Extry! Read all about it!
Breaking news! Chicago Cubs opening day starter Ryan Dempster exercises his player option and will be back with the team next year!
Okay, it’s not exactly breaking news. This happened a couple weeks ago. I was still in the middle of [...]
