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.

Random PC cards from my collection

I'm pretty much spending most of my day on my card blogs. For those that don't know, I'm in the process of getting scans of all my cards in one place. That place is currently at My Personal Collections blog. I currently have 6090 cards shown there. I also have a blog set up for every collection that I have where I put scans in as well. I don't really advertise those as they are more for me but if you want to check them out, I believe there are links on my profile page under my blogs. I also link to those blogs when I post a card and say what collection it belongs to.

I'm also trying to get all my cards cataloged on a Google Spreadsheet, where I have the card info along with when, where and how much I got them for. That doc is not at 6339 items. What all is involved in this, is I'm going through all my past posts on this blog and putting down the cards I show and where they came from. That won't cover every card I've gotten because I didn't post every card, just highlights of bigger packages. So once I get everything on my blog down on that document, then comes actually going through my cards on hand and seeing what I haven't added yet and add those. It's a huge project and I've been working on it for awhile but it more or less gives me something to do when I'm just sitting on my ass in front of the TV. Anyways, that's what I'm spending my Sunday doing. I've already added 75 new photos to My Personal Collections and downloaded/scanned another 65 cards to put on there another day.

Next up, I'm going back to the last blog post I left on from January 12th, 2012 and start typing in the cards and I'll probably do that into this evening when I finally get tired of it. I gotta say I do enjoy these days when I have nothing to do. With all the holiday festivities lately, I've had lots of days off but very few where I had no plans.

Anyways, I figured I'd take a moment out of that activity and put a random post today since I didn't get much in the mail in the past week so I didn't post much. I'm going to do a random card from each of my tiers of my player collections and 1 each from both of my team collections and one from each decade of the vintage collection. So you should get 8 cards here. I've randomed, let's see what comes up.
