Almost a new year - Where I am, what I'm doing and where I'm going !

As another year comes to a close I sit here pondering the possibilities for 2013, while sipping coffee made in my new Christmas B&D coffee maker, thanks to my wonderful wife ! ( She also got me an awesome Cleveland Indians metal waste basket ! )

I don't anticipate any major changes in my buying, collecting or trading of baseball cards. I do want to keep better track of trades this year. I tried a plan last year that didn't last long, hopefully this year it will work better.

The very first thing on my agenda is to finish mailing out the free cards I promised. The holidays really took a toll on that project and I apologize to all who haven't yet received cards.  The list is right in front of me and I cross off each name as I send them out. I have three more ready to go and will prepare more this afternoon. It would have gone quicker, but I'm trying to include a few extra cards in each mailer that complements your want lists or fav team or player. Thank you for your patience !

I also have received packages from the following :

Nomo's Sushi Platter
The Sandlot
Nachos Grande
I't's Like Having My Own Card Shop
Brad's Blog
Dime Boxes
2 by 3 Heroes
Joe Average Card Collector

I will also be responding to each of these. Some were for cards already sent, some I owe cards.

Creating more, and better, wants lists is the next thing on the "to do" list.

At last count, I was approaching 14,500 Indian cards !
But I have one Indian card checklist that has over 40,000 listings and only goes through part of 2007.

 So I have a ways to go yet !!


  1. I've been wondering how many Mets cards I have lately. I don't think I'm anywhere near 14k though! That's amazing!
