A. Letting three days slip in between my posts. Usually I have three to seven scheduled posts, but right now I have zero. The sad thing is... I don't really have any new ideas at the moment either... except for possibly this weekend's flea market recap.
B. Not reading and commenting on your posts as often as I'd like. I try to read as many as I can during my free time, which explains why some of my comments are in the wee hours of the morning. But right now it's hard to keep up with the 200+ active blogs I follow. I promise all of you that will change as soon as summer school starts.
C. Making a bunch of you wait for your care/trade packages. As of right now, I know I owe: Dennis (Too Many Verlanders), Tom (The Angels, In Order), Tony (Off Hiatus Baseball Card), Zippy (Cervin' Up Cards), Comatoad (Bleedin' Brown and Gold), The Prowling Cat, Matthew (Bob Walk the Plank), T.J. (The Junior Junkie), Mr. Hoyle, Brett (@ CCW), The Big Kahuna (Enough Already), and of course Wes (Jay Barker Fan's Junk).
If I missed anyone... I'm totally sorry. Leave a comment below and I'll add you to the list.
D. Taking longer than usual to reply to the comments on my own blog. I used to love waking up and reading your comments, but lately I've been using that time to read all of your blogs. My normal commenting should resume in two more weeks.
Now onto a more positive note. This week I received two packages in the mail from Too Many Verlanders and Jay Barker Fan's Junk. Here are some of the highlights from their packages.
We'll start off with a package from Dennis who hooked me up with this awesome addition to my Tony Gwynn PC:
This card is awesome for a couple of reasons. First... two of my favorite baseball players are together on one card, which happens to be a small project I'm currently working on. And if that's not cool enough for you, it features one of my favorite baseball teams and Pinnacle's awesome dufex technology.
He also sent a handful of cards for my Stanford, CAL, and SJSU collections. In fact I didn't have any of the cards he sent, which is totally awesome. Thanks Dennis. As soon as things settle down, I'll send some Detroit Tigers your way.
A boatload of Japanese ball players...
Some Oakland Athletics...
And San Diego Padres...
A pair of Seahawks...
Thanks Wes! You've gone way overboard again. I think that's the third package you've sent this year. At this rate, I'm never going to be able to make things square. But don't worry... I don't give up that easy.
