Medium Flat Rate Box Monday

Mailday Monday saw two Cubs packages. One bubble mailer featured a Carl Edwards Jr. Gypsy Queen autograph that I was high bidder on eBay. It used the last couple eBay bucks I had left in my account. The other package was a medium flat rate box from Travis in San Diego, California. We worked outContinue reading “Medium Flat Rate Box Monday”

One Million Cubs Project Mailday Box Break of Hits Video

As I juggle a few different hobby tasks, there has been one package (actually two – same purchase) that I’ve been sitting on because I need to do a blog.

Initially, in a project such as this, I envisioned keeping detailed stats of the projectContinue reading “One Million Cubs Project Daily and Weekly Stats”

South Bends Cubs Baseball Card Clearance

For those that collect minor league baseball cards, visiting each minor league affiliate’s team store is a good place to get some discounted team sets. Typically, previous year’s sets (if still available) are much less than what you would find on eBay or a minor league dealer’s inventory.

An Unexpected Peoria Chiefs Mailday

Last week an old buddy from Galesburg, Illinois tipped me off that a package was on its way. Matt and I have made a couple swaps recently, as I’ve sent him a bunch of Tony Gwynn in return for Cubs. In the last package he filled it up with a bunch of Peoria Chiefs autographedContinue reading “An Unexpected Peoria Chiefs Mailday”
