This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Am I back?

Hello all, remember me?  I’m going to try to get back to blogging, but before I do, I want to explain why I stopped.  There are the usual reasons, time being the main one but to be honest, the main reason I quit, scanning.  I like sharing the cards I purchased at a great price, but I dislike the scanning so much that I put off scanning them.  Then I end up with a huge stack and it’ll take even more time to scan then so I put it off more, then it just gets ridiculous.  Then when I take a whole day to get all the scanning done, I still have to log them into my collection pages and put them away.  So I stopped.

I’ve thought about getting back into it, but the scanning keeps me leery.  Then I had the great (not really) idea, most of the cards I add, come from Ebay.  So I may decide to start using the pics on the Ebay page, or maybe screen cap pics, something.  It won’t be as nice as when I scan them, but it’s something.

I realize that what it boils down to is that I’m lazy.  I admit it, so be it.  If you don’t like it then I guess you can read somebody else’s blog.  There’s a whole list on the side of this page, towards the bottom.

Lately, I’ve only been purchasing cards for my player collections, I do a search everyday for each player, max bid with shipping is $.50.  If anything comes up, I throw a bid and hope to win.  That’s pretty much my only purchases.  Occasionally I’ll do a search through each year for the vintage collection, but that takes quite a bit of time, not to mention, I end up spending more.  At least some things don’t change, I’m still broke.

So hopefully I’ll see you all tomorrow, or maybe the next day, or the day after that.  We’ll see.


  1. Pictures are pictures, so if you'll post I'll be reading.

    I've decided that I have a tremendous threshold for scanning. I still hate it, but I seem to be able to get through it more than most.

  2. Welcome back.
    Yeah the scanning thing puts me behind a lot as well. I also have a bunch of other things in life other than cards so I know the feeling about being lazy about blogging.

    Of course one can still blog without the pictures, but it is fun to see what is being talked about.
