I ponder this question most evenings. Spent last night working on copying team set lists over to my own list again. I started with the year 1900 and I’m only at 1922. I’m excited to get to the current years just to see if I already have any team sets. But I’m forcing myself to start where I left off and work my way to the current years because it keeps me motivated to keep working on the lists. Problem is, I have a whole slew of crap I should be doing.
- Getting trade packages ready to go out.
- Scan and write up posts for 1973, 1981, Today’s 9, ect.
- Want to change my blog template, background, ect.
- Finish team sets lists and player collection want lists.
- Shop on ebay to spend my ebay bucks.
- Put away PC cards already scanned.
- Catch up reading all of your blogs.
There’s probably more but I just can’t think of them at this point. I suppose it would help if I would concentrate on one at a time until I complete it, but where’s the fun in that.
I’ve also come to the conclusion that I need to spend my money better and I’ve heard other bloggers mention this and I think I’m going to head that route as well. I’m only going to spend money on stuff for my collections or trade bait. I’m going to try to limit my spending on buying packs and blasters. The logic I heard, and agree with is, why spend $20 on a blaster of cards and end up with a few cards for my collection when I could spend $20 on cards I want. I’m going to try to join some box breaks and get cards that way. The bad part is, that leaves me very little to trade with so I will probably have to cut back on the trading. I do love trading with bloggers because they are so generous but I won’t feel comfortable trading somebody a few cards when I know they will send me a stack. I’ll feel guilty for not sending much. I’ll still pick up trade bait here and there so I can trade, and that’ll be a good way to get hits. Pick up hits for your hits.
I guess since I try to show cards. I’ll show you a few cards my wife picked up for me. She’s really into free stuff online and coupons. She earned some points on some website and picked up 4 cards of my team. The usual with these kind of sites, advertise you can get vintage, but truth be told, we’re going to send you cards from 1986-1994. Which is what they did. 4 1990 Fleer. But it was a good purchase because it was free and I actually needed 3 of the 4. The only one I had already had was an Ozzie Guillen.
So I got to add these to my collection. Thanks baby! Oh, that’s something else I need to do. Add “Put away PC cards already scanned” of course, by the time you get down here, you would have already read it and didn’t know I added it later. Anyways, I jumped in on a 2012 Topps box break already (JABO’s) so hopefully I’ll get close if not complete a series 1 team set.
I gotta go do, I don’t know, something. Crap! Add catch up on all your blogs, I’m a few days behind on those too.
Maybe I’ll get everything done. Either way, I’m out for now.
