Welcome to my blog. Preparing for the last Cardboard Hurrah

Monday, January 28, 2019


Well, the time has come.  The final mega break packages made it to the post office today.

Today is the last blog post I will be making.  It's also the end of my active trading career.  I will be on twitter and I will still be collecting just in a much more subdued manner with a much smaller subject base. Only going to be pursuing a couple of pcs-Willingham 1/1s, Mike Wilks jersey cards, Steve Woodard and Gary Redus certified autos, and certified pro wrestling auto cards.

Maybe down the line some of my trading buddies may see a surprise package from good ole jbf- ya never know.  I want to thank everyone for the support and interaction over the years.  Wish you all the best in your collecting journey!  Please hit the lights on your way out.

Wrap Up Time

The AREA 40 megabreak has now come to a close. I must say it was more of a daunting task than I imagined but still a ton of fun!  Hundreds and hundreds of packs later and we have ended up with 351 hits.  Kudos to our winner Adam Sanders who almost nailed it on the head!

Sorting is now complete and packaging is next. I hope to start mailing next week.  I thought a good way to wrap this up might be to share some of the best hits and where they are headed.  Everyone that signed up will receive a package and I'm proud of that!  Buckle up for the top 15 imho that are headed into the blogosphere!

 A beautiful May's that is going to Ryan G

Now to finish this off...here are the cards I decided to keep

Sorting has begun as the break is now complete. I will be posting a wrap up and announcing the contest winner on Friday.  Please be patient as it will take me a while to get these in the mail but I'm hopeful for the end of next week. Happy New Years everyone!
