Vermont Sends Some Panini Chronicles and Kris Bryant

Throughout 2019 I have been tracking the states that have contributed to the One Million Cubs Project. Up until a couple months ago Vermont was a state that eluded me this year. Then Beth in South Burlington came through with a few packages and they were filled with some awesome Cubs baseball cards. My latestContinue reading “Vermont Sends Some Panini Chronicles and Kris Bryant”

More Than 4,500 Cubs Cards From Howard the Rockies Collector

A trade months in the making was finally completed this week. My bulk trade partner for Colorado Rockies baseball cards acquired a collection over the summer and pulled over 4,500 Cubs cards for a trade. It’s tough sorting out that many Rockies cards (or other recent expansion clubs), so it was going to take someContinue reading “More Than 4,500 Cubs Cards From Howard the Rockies Collector”

Eddie Vedder Fleer Cubs Custom and North Dakota Checks In

Another full mailbox welcomed me on Saturday. It elicited a comment from a postal clerk on Monday: “Did you get all your packages?” The postal employees at my post office are all aware of the project, and I am regularly asked how many cards I’m at. Four packages were in Saturday’s mail, including a boxContinue reading “Eddie Vedder Fleer Cubs Custom and North Dakota Checks In”

Still today I learn things all the time about shipping. Of course, technology has rapidlyContinue reading “Shipping Baseball Cards and Learning Something New”

The Unknown Bond With an Unknown Brother

Maybe it was the red, white, and blue color scheme. Maybe it was the cool logo that I liked as a youngster. Maybe it was the cool name…Expos. Youppi? Whatever it was, the Montreal Expos were my second favorite Major League Baseball team growing up. Of course, the Chicago Cubs are my number one andContinue reading “The Unknown Bond With an Unknown Brother”

Cubs Oddballs And Closing In on a Milestone

Three packages with nearly 1,200 Cubs baseball cards were delivered on Saturday. The Mailday put me to almost 349,000 Cubs cards as I close in on a milestone and reach 35% of my goal of one million Cubs cards. Glen sent another NAFTA trade package. I’ve lost count at how many trades we’ve conducted, asContinue reading “Cubs Oddballs And Closing In on a Milestone”

Tommy Likey. Tommy Sends Cubbies

Weak attempt at Tommy Boy humor with this headline. In my defense, the trade partner for today’s package of Cubs baseball cards goes by Tommy on Twitter and he lives just 90 miles from Sandusky, Ohio…setting for the movie Tommy Boy. Now it’s time to get serious. Cubs baseball card serious, which sounds like anContinue reading “Tommy Likey. Tommy Sends Cubbies”
