Of Beer and Baseball Cards

Another day…another empty mailbox. Sort of. I did receive some cards in the mail today, but I’m not ready to blog about it. Hopefully in a couple weeks I’ll be ready to share a minor project that grew organically recently. Until then, I’ve got little to blog about. However, I did receive a couple packagesContinue reading “Of Beer and Baseball Cards”

I Blame The Cleaners For This Lunch Break

Today, my lunch break has two different meanings. First, the logical break from work for lunch. Second, a break of a couple 2018 Topps series 2 blasters on said lunch break. I blame the cleaning ladies. Yes, a lame excuse that wouldn’t pass the wife test. We have cleaners come every two weeks. Good andContinue reading “I Blame The Cleaners For This Lunch Break”

Medium Flat Rate Box Monday Blowout Sale

Since my mailbox was empty on Monday it’s time for a blowout sale. I’m looking to blowout some bulk medium flat rate boxes as I’m running out of room. At this time I have three different deals. In the near future I’ll likely add some other bulk sales. Deal #1 – Hockey I have severalContinue reading “Medium Flat Rate Box Monday Blowout Sale”

Take Advantage of Free Money With eBay Bucks

If you are buying on eBay you are earning free money. Well, it’s not exactly “free” money because you have spent money to buy an item. But…if you did not realize eBay Bucks existed, then it is free money. I assumed everyone shopping on eBay was familiar with eBay Bucks. I was wrong, hence thisContinue reading “Take Advantage of Free Money With eBay Bucks”

An Economical Way To Shipping a Large Volume of Cards

One struggle in the past I’ve had is selling junk era complete sets. A five dollar set, of say 1989 Topps, will set you back about $12 to ship. That’s not economical. So, you bundle. The issue there is that those large Topps sets will not fit inside a medium flat rate box, nor willContinue reading “An Economical Way To Shipping a Large Volume of Cards”

A Story of Baseball Cards and Gas Station Pizza

For those of you that saw my tweets earlier tonight you may or may not be aware of the dinner I enjoyed. A dinner of pizza that is made inside a gas station. And for those outside the Midwest, it may have looked a bit odd, and based on your preferences possibly a bit disgusting.Continue reading “A Story of Baseball Cards and Gas Station Pizza”

Cubs Trade Mailday Adds Plenty of New Cards

Trade maildays have been few and far between lately with my schedule. A bubble mailer arrived today from Joe in New York, and it was packed with some goodies, and plenty of new cards for the collection. First, some new Javier Baez cards. There were five Baez cards total and two new ones including aContinue reading “Cubs Trade Mailday Adds Plenty of New Cards”

The One Million Cubs Project Sorta Monday Mailbag

One package did arrive in my mailbox Monday. Thanks to Mannis Cards for the trade. I sent him some 2018 Topps Yankees cards in exchange for some Javier Baez cards. A bulk of my Monday haul actually came in on Sunday. A few months ago I saw a tweet from SSCards16 who had acquired 50Continue reading “The One Million Cubs Project Sorta Monday Mailbag”

What's The Number One Card On Your Want/Wish List

While enjoying a new favorite beer (Sweet Sunglasses blonde ale from Hop Haus Brewing in Verona, WI) on my patio, I began thinking about Cubs baseball cards on my want list. I’ve been able to knock off a few cards from that list over the past few months. There’s one card that has always beenContinue reading “What's The Number One Card On Your Want/Wish List”
