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.

2014 in Review

You all know I got stats. If you read my other blog, you know I keep a lot of stats. Most have nothing to do with this blog, but one does. We all also know that I only buy cheap cards anymore, because I’m broke and trying to buy a house, 2 things that don’t go together well.

I did keep track of all my Ebay spending this year. I don’t think I bought from anywhere else all year so that was an easy category to keep. I do plan on hitting Just Commons some time in the future, hopefully near future, and grab some PC cards or maybe even cards for the 3 sets that I’m over 50% on.

Back to the stats. I picked up 907 cards on Ebay this past year. Which is rather shocking because I never would have guessed that much. All of those 907 cards cost me a total of $252.54 which now that I read that total, makes me think I shouldn’t be spending money on cards but when it comes down to it, I only paid an average of $.28 a card.

So the rule here is, don’t tell my wife that total because as long as she thinks I’m dropping a quarter a card, she won’t realize how much since I never realized it until now.

The bad part is I had 907 new cards come into my collection, and I only had 137 posts last year. That just sucks.

I have been working on the My Sports Obsession – Index blog and the more I work on it, the more I want to add cards to this blog so they get added to that blog and it becomes more comprehensive. I think when I eventually get up to date on that blog, I’ll start adding other cards from other blogs as well but that’s way off, I should probably make that a goal for this year, to get caught up on it. It may happen, it may not. That is part of the reason that I’ve been doing the random posts, to get more pictures up.  I’ve also started linking pictures of single cards to my have lists.

So just because I haven’t been here much with new material, doesn’t mean I’m not around. I just added a bunch more blogs to my reading material that I snagged from Play at the Plates contest so I’ll have more blogs to grab great cards from. I have been pinning some of them (mainly vintage stars) to my Baseball Cards board on Pinterest.

I’ll be back with some more random posts since I haven’t purchased anything in a couple of weeks. Until next time.
