Last Call for Trade Bait

Get 'em while I got 'em! I was thinking I wasn't quite getting the response I was hoping for with my Trade Bait link and haven't updated it in awhile. It turns out that part of the lack of response could be that the link has been broke for who-knows-how-long. Show More Summary

Featured autograph - Bill Singer

I picked this autograph through the SCN fs/trade section for $5 along with a group of 10 other in-person autographs I needed for specific card sets - I'm not really into buying autographs, but I'll pick up a few impulsively if I canShow More Summary

Thorzul Group Break Results

Any time you wind up with a serial numbered Chuck Finley card, things are golden. Late in the spring, Thorzul held a group break where he divvied up a bit lot of craziness that he purchased online. I haven't participated in many group...Show More Summary

Signature Sundays - "Just When I Thought I Was Out...They Pull Me Back In!"

If you check in here even occasionally, it should be no secret to you that the Panini Classics Signatures autographs were my absolute favorite hockey cards released during the 2012-13 collecting season. They were really my number one...Show More Summary

Joe Thatcher

Yet Another PWE from Douglas

eBay Bargain Hunting!

The Pleasure Principle

Ricky Wright, 1987 Topps Here is Ricky Wright. Here he is again: Now, I know what you're thinking: What was the exact date that catcher Wes Westrum caught three fouls in one inning? "Wait," you say, "that wasn't the date I was thinking. Show More Summary

Random cards

During some down time 'at work,' I was hanging out next to some guys going through a discarded shoe box of cards - a person who didn't want the box of cards gave them to someone else who was going through the cards with three others to see if they could find any useful ones they needed [with the rest being given away to kids].

Trading with Waiting 'til Next Year
