Vintage, Graded, Ryno, and Roederer

Friday’s Cubs mailday was a potpourri and the widest selection of new cards for my collection. Vintage, graded, oddball, and a new Cole Roederer for my PC. A flat rate box was sent by Dust Hobbies on Twitter, and he added a plethora of new Cubs to my collection. On top of the box insideContinue reading “Vintage, Graded, Ryno, and Roederer”

New Mike Bielecki and Dwight Smith Cards Added to the Cubs Collection

How many baseball card blogs have Mike Bielecki in a title? Sure, Dwight Smith was the runner-up for National League Rookie of the Year for the Cubs in 1989 (won by teammate Jerome Walton), so his name may pop up. But Mike Bielecki? Thanks to Alex in Aiken, South Carolina for a box filled withContinue reading “New Mike Bielecki and Dwight Smith Cards Added to the Cubs Collection”

Boxing Day Box from New Jersey

The day after Christmas, Boxing Day, yielded a large box of Cubs cards from Josh in New Jersey. Inside the large box were three boxes of Cubs totaling 1,449 additional cards to my count.

Christmas Cubs and Hobby Presents

When asked what I wanted for Christmas, my response was: “Anything Cubs or baseball cards.” When that was met with a side eye, I added, “or an eBay gift card. A web cam for my box breaks….and I could always use socks.” Seriously…I asked for socks. I must have made the nice list this year,Continue reading “Christmas Cubs and Hobby Presents”

Bowman Draft Break Results Part of Four-Package Mailday

Four more packages came in on Friday, including the disappointing results of the one 2018 Bowman Draft break I bought into. It wasn’t disappointing because I didn’t pull any hits, it was disappointing because the breaker didn’t send my base. That was the one reason I bought into the break, and wasn’t buying into anyContinue reading “Bowman Draft Break Results Part of Four-Package Mailday”

2018 Elite Extra Edition Case Break Results

It has been a while since I’ve entered a box or case break. With the box prices on Elite Extra Edition and Bowman Draft, it just didn’t make sense for me to buy any. Both products are loaded up with Cubs, so I was on a mission to find some Pick Your Team (PYT) caseContinue reading “2018 Elite Extra Edition Case Break Results”

Trades From Ohio, Michigan, and Arizona in Thursday's Mail

Last week was a slow mail week for the One Million Cubs Project. Things have certainly changed this week as four packages arrived on Thursday. Three trade packages came – from Arizona, Ohio, and Michigan, and the fourth package was from a case break of 2018 Elite Extra Edition. I’ll include the count (24 cards)Continue reading “Trades From Ohio, Michigan, and Arizona in Thursday's Mail”

Another Cole Roederer and a Box from a Former Monmouth-Roseville Titan

A Cubs-Cardinals trade was completed Tuesday when Cody from Monmouth, Illinois sent me a box of Cubs. Cody and I got the trade going on a Facebook group, but we know each other from his high school basketball playing days with the Monmouth-Roseville Titans. I worked at the local radio station in Monmouth (AM 1330Continue reading “Another Cole Roederer and a Box from a Former Monmouth-Roseville Titan”
