Javy and Hermanski Mailday

It’s been a busy Memorial Day weekend after breaking open a bunch of 2020 Bowman, listing in my eBay Store, shipping, and playing catch up on trades. In a recent trade with Mike from Indiana, he sent some pretty sweet Cubs hits. We have traded a few times in the past couple years, and heContinue reading “Javy and Hermanski Mailday”

Jorge Soler Autograph and 2018 Cubs for a Medium Flat Rate Box of Hockey Cards

Another package that arrived last week was from a trade with Jason in New York. The trade originated from my post selling medium flat rate boxes of hockey cards for $20 shipped.

The Legend of Gary Scott and Jay Johnstone's Headwear

Monday marked a first in the One Million Cubs Project. It was my first mailday that was packaged in a Sock Monkey box. Points for style. Inside, Adam from California sent 325 Cubs cards.

Custom Cubs Cards Courtesy of Rookies App

Until 2014, I was an Android user. The iPhone had tempted me, but enough to take the plunge. I used Mac computers for three years at my previous job and never did get used to their quirks. That was a big reason why I stuck with Android. Then the Rookies App drew my attention. ForContinue reading “Custom Cubs Cards Courtesy of Rookies App”
