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.

New Cubs Prospects and Coozies Added on Mailday Monday

Three packages welcomed me home on Monday. As of Tuesday evening, I just tore into the first package. It’s been one of those weeks…and it’s only Tuesday! Between family commitments and catching up on Sportlots and eBay orders (many from my weekend 2018 Bowman binge), I’m a bit behind. But Charm City Autographs tweeted thatContinue reading “New Cubs Prospects and Coozies Added on Mailday Monday”

The One Million Cubs Project Has Branched Out

Recently one of my Dodgers traders, @SouthIndyCards, was inspired by the One Million Cubs Project and set out to collect one million Dodgers cards.

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.

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”

Steve Trout Pizza Party and a Stack of Scott Sanderson

As I catch up on trade reviews, tonight’s review came via a Twitter trade more than a week ago. This one was brokered by Tony Burbs (@rosterjenga) as he tweeted at me that @mjpmke was looking to unload about 800 Cubs cards. Matthew and I began exchanging direct messages and a trade was set. IContinue reading “Steve Trout Pizza Party and a Stack of Scott Sanderson”

Cubs Convention 2018 Preview

For the fourth consecutive year, I will be making the trek to Chicago’s downtown Sheraton for the annual Cubs Convention. After a career in radio (no money) and Division I college Athletics (no time), I made a career move that allowed me time each January to attend the convention. Year one was amazing and itContinue reading “Cubs Convention 2018 Preview”
