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”

Javier Baez and Ernie Banks May Day Mail Day

It’s May, I think. Sometimes I forget what day it is, but more than ever with shelter in place in effect. Now I forget what month it is. Shouldn’t I be watching baseball? It’s may after all. Hopefully the reports are true, and we’ll see baseball by the Fourth of July. In the absence ofContinue reading “Javier Baez and Ernie Banks May Day Mail Day”

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”

Cubs Parallels Abound in Monday's Mailday

Monday’s mail brings in 53 more Cubs cards to the collection thanks to Opening Day Sportscards. This is our second trade, and I’ll be returning a package of Phillies. This trade package including a bunch of 2018 cards. I need to start off with the Javy Baez. Two more 2018 Bowman Platinum added to theContinue reading “Cubs Parallels Abound in Monday's Mailday”

Holy Javier Baez, Look at this Box of Cubs

A second trade package came from Ron in Maryland. We traded a few months back when I sent a box of Steelers (and had to finish the box with Yankees after I ran short on Steelers cards) to Ron. He’s a great trader, who also has a Sportlots store. Check it out. The box ofContinue reading “Holy Javier Baez, Look at this Box of Cubs”

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. There are still several of these boxes available if anyone wants one. Only $20 shipped, or I will entertain a trade for CubsContinue reading “Jorge Soler Autograph and 2018 Cubs for a Medium Flat Rate Box of Hockey 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”

Hot Hittin Javier Baez and What MVP Did Trevor Cahill Win

Javier Baez has been in the news this week surrounding his hot bat. The bat that smacked four home runs in two games against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the same bat that he flipped after a pop fly. The bat flip drew criticism from Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. “You watch their kid flip that batContinue reading “Hot Hittin Javier Baez and What MVP Did Trevor Cahill Win”

Willy, Javy, Rizzo, Ryno, and the Hoarding of a Former Cubs Prospect

Wednesday saw a pile of boxes on my counter as part of a triple mailday. Yesterday, I wrote about the nearly 2,000 cards that came from Vern in New York. Another trade that was conducted on Twitter was from Chuck in Ohio. Chuck sent over a nice mix of 76 Cubs cards which included quiteContinue reading “Willy, Javy, Rizzo, Ryno, and the Hoarding of a Former Cubs Prospect”

Oddballs and Autographs: Another Great Twitter Trade

Check off another fantastic return via Twitter trade. Plenty of oddballs and great Cubs cards from Jason (@realjtcarter). Inside the bubble mailer was a book. I have many, many books on baseball. Especially Chicago Cubs books. But…”The Cubs Fan’s Guide To Happiness,” is a new one for my library. Ironically, one of the Cubs jokesContinue reading “Oddballs and Autographs: Another Great Twitter Trade”
