You Can Always Get Scammed

Even hobbies have their villains. People that spend the big money on huge quantities of cards, or even the big money on just one or two cards, definitely know that the card collecting "Hobby" as its known isn't immune to dirtbags. Like...Show More Summary

Sports 'n Stuff

Red cards from Dodger Blue country. I've been having a run of lousy sports luck, which made me seriously question how much I want to invest my time and emotions into games of men I don't know and will never meet. I do this from time to time, but lately it's been a serious test. Show More Summary

A New Year is (Almost) Upon Us

Let's put 2014 Topps to bed. Even though I'm unusually excited (no more white borders!) about the soon-to-be-unleashed 2015 Topps set, I haven't looked at the checklist yet. It went live today, and I'm sure that the Cardinals were at least adequately represented. Show More Summary

Catching Up With Trade Posts

Shiny Cardinal cards from a Red Sox fan. Last month, my stash of Topps Chipz was the impetus for a Red Sox-for-Cardinals trade, this time with Catching Up With Collecting. It was my first time trading with CUWC, and it did not disappoint. Show More Summary

Contest results revealed! And much, much more! First off, a slow clap and a wave of the foam finger to Jeff of One Man's Junk (Wax) for taking the top prize in the Bowl Pick 'em Contest.

An Original Fake

Nothing fake about this package, however. I'm all caught up with sending packages out, so it's time to show off some of the stuff I've actually received lately. I do have more things to mail out, but they will be more of the "I feel like sending you cards so I no longer have these cards" variety instead of something I organized. Show More Summary

New Year, Same Old Pack

Get your Sweet Spot here. I'm still working on getting the last of the group break packages out the door. By my count, I have 4 left to ship. I'm hoping to have these in the mail by tomorrow... or Wednesday at the latest. In the meantime, I thought I'd distract myself with another pack of 2005 Sweet Spot. Show More Summary

More Sweet Spot

I'm trapped inside with sports on the TV as Noah's Ark is being assembled outside my door. Well, I don't know about you, but I'm not off to a tremendous start in the whole bowl pick 'em thing.
