First Time....

For the first time I will be selling a large amount of surplus sports cards at a hobbies/craft show in Bloomington IL on December 7th at the Lafeete Club. I will be selling unopened packs of baseball cards, baseball card singles, football card singles, NASCAR singles, Hockey singles, and more. I'm still working on coming up with the giveaway prize.

Cubs room (progress)

This is a small update. Yes, there is still work happening in the Cubs room - Although slow. Resorting and distributing thousands of baseball cards is time consuming. Additionally I still have more bins to purchase and raisers. I'm also taking this time to re-photo my collections.

Update on Cubs HoF collection.

First on the list, Ryne Sandberg

Hall of Fame / MVP / 10x All-Star / 9x Gold Glove / 7x Silver Slugger /ML PoY
WAR 68.0 / H 2386 / HR 282 / R 1318 / RBI 1061 /SB 344

59 cards between make years of 1983 and 1996

I have not updated the blog recently on Ryne, I have purchased total of 9 Ryne Sandberg cards in 2019 and I'm closing in on completion on my Ryne Sandberg collection.  I currently have 59 cards of which 48 are unique.  Given that I don't have any 1995 cards of Ryne, there are at least 10 cards from 1995 that could be added.
