Autographs From Cards From The Attic

Low end autographs have been a target for my One Million Cubs Project lately. Remember…I’m after quantity, not quality. That also goes hand-in-hand with my fandom of Cubs prospects that never panned out. @Cardsfromattic had a lot of autographed Cubs for sale, and I bit. The price was right for 15 autographed Cubs cards forContinue reading “Autographs From Cards From The Attic”

The One Million Cubs Project Has Branched Out

Recently one of my Dodgers traders, @SouthIndyCards, was inspired by the One Million Cubs Project and set out to collect one million Dodgers cards. The momentum has carried over to other team collectors chasing that milestone. One of them, #TheYankeesMillion, sent a box of Cubs that arrived on Wednesday. In all, 645 more Cubs wereContinue reading “The One Million Cubs Project Has Branched Out”

The Baseball Card Set That Brought Me Back To Collecting

This week marked the release of the latest Bowman set. As I have hopped from Target to Target and Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart all week I finally found a small stash of blasters on Thursday. I’ll review the 2018 product this weekend. But tonight it’s all about the set that brought line back to baseball cardContinue reading “The Baseball Card Set That Brought Me Back To Collecting”

Mailday Monday Brings A Mix of Cubs

Monday’s Mailday saw 440 more Cubs cards enter the One Million Cubs Project collection. The one-box Mailday was courtesy of Daniel from Facebook. I sent a box of Atlanta Braves in return for the Cubs. Another 39 Ryne Sandberg cards came. Several more 1987 Topps Sandberg’s were added bringing my total to somewhere north ofContinue reading “Mailday Monday Brings A Mix of Cubs”

Inspiration in the Baseball Card Hobby

Sunday’s are a great day for reflection and today is perfect timing for a trade review built upon inspiration in this hobby. The One Million Cubs Project was not some idea that popped in my head while sorting cards one morning. It was born through multiple ideas and bloggers. I’ve always stashed Cubs cards asideContinue reading “Inspiration in the Baseball Card Hobby”

Reviewing the 1989 Marathon Oil Cubs Oddball Set

Earlier this week I reviewed the 1990 Marathon Oil Chicago Cubs set. It was part of two sets that I purchased on eBay. After submitting a best offer, I was countered by the seller giving me a small discount and saying it was the lowest he could go on the multiple sets. I was unawareContinue reading “Reviewing the 1989 Marathon Oil Cubs Oddball Set”

1990 Marathon Oil Chicago Cubs Set

A recent tweet showed off some 1991 Vineline Cubs cards. Unfortunately, they were not for trade so I sought out eBay for sets. Thinking I’d surely find some, it was a fruitless effort. However, I did come across some other oddball Cubs sets from this era that were missing from my collection. One seller hadContinue reading “1990 Marathon Oil Chicago Cubs Set”

2018 Bowman Chicago Cubs Checklist Review

One week from today 2018 Bowman is released. Shoheil Ohtani mania is pricing many collectors out of this product, myself included. In years past, I have trouble spending $75-80 for a hobby box. This year, hobby boxes are running close to $170. That is just insane. I’ll be stalking Target and Wal-Mart for some blasterContinue reading “2018 Bowman Chicago Cubs Checklist Review”

Kosuke Fukudome Brings Out the Bro Hugs

Rob in New Jersey sent a box of Cubs that arrived on Monday. This is my second trade with Rob. Just like the first deal, he sent a nice mix of cards that included many new Cubs to add to my collection. Kerry Wood is an all-time fan favorite. I’ve mentioned a few times recentlyContinue reading “Kosuke Fukudome Brings Out the Bro Hugs”
