I’m slowly trying to get caught up on reading everybody’s blogs again. The section I’m in at work doesn’t allow me much time to read and my foreman’s been a dick about me reading on the line anyways so once again, I’m behind. I haven’t really had as much time to sit on the laptop at home lately, Boy and Girls scouts seem to save up all their activities for March and April. I see I missed some contests again, damn it. That’s the real reason I need to stay current.
I’ve got some cheap Ebay pickups stuff to scan, hopefully today and I would like to get my team want lists finished sometime this weekend. Plus I always have more 1981 and 1973 posts to get ready. And I still have a few of my random PC cards already finished to throw up on here. I also received a trade package in the mail on Thursday that I need to scan. While I love receiving packages of Sox cards, it’s such a task to get them all organized and put away. I’m not as creative as all of you so I will be posting the trade package in a new way, maybe the Ebay pickup as well. Of course, now that I’ve got a new system to post trade packages, I won’t be trading as much. I haven’t bought any packs of cards yet this year for myself. I’ve received a few packs as a gift and bought my son a few packs so my lack of trading from here on out isn’t because I hate trading, because I love trading. It’s more because I just don’t have the cards to reciprocate the packages you guys send me. What few cards I do have, I list on Ebay just to get rid of and whatever I make off of those, I turn around and buy cards for myself. I’m not selling anything high dollar, and I only list 50 cards a month because every seller now gets 50 free listings a month. I think out of the 50 cards I listed last month, I ended up with just under $5 if that tells you anything. I mainly listed vintage at $.79 starting bid with free shipping. They were all common vintage so I wasn’t expecting much to begin with. Most of the cards I have to list aren’t anything I could probably sell charging $2 to ship because they aren’t that good. But it’s something and it’s less money out of my pocket that I get to spend on cards I do want.
When I said I wasn’t as creative as a lot of you, what I meant was my posting tend to basically be what I have gotten for my PC’s. You all have great subjects and post about a lot of different things about cards, that’s why I read so many of your blogs. I tend to just stick with PC stuff because that’s all I know or have to talk about. I throw out a little bit about my sports teams on occasion Which is why I’m amazed I have any readers at all, but I still get comments here and there which I love to receive. So for those of you who do still read along, many thanks for following and sharing in my passion.
