Thanks to all the well-wishers from my 7th blogiversary post last week. This cardboard community of ours is great and it's the main reason I've stuck around as I have.
Cardboard. Cardboard is nice, too!
Once a Cub, busted some Topps Opening Day and he sent me a boatload in a pair of PWEs along with some other high quality Cub offerings.
Ryno! This first one is from Panini Chronicles, which I though was a very unique concept for a set.
I'm now up to 869 different Rynos. The 900 milestone is within reach if I want to pursue it.
We'll see though, because I have other ideas on how I'm going to spend all my card money this year. For example: I need to save some dough for when The Vogelmonster goes on his inevitable homerun tear and hitting streaks. Vogelbach will be the poster child for Topps NOW before the season is over. You heard it hear first!
Matt, thanks for the nice cardboard surprise in my mailbox last week. It was very much appreciated and I'll see what I can do about evening the score before too long.
Quick Update: I'm still not back to full blogging strength because school and my baseball coaching duties are demanding much of my time. Seniors graduate three weeks from today, which means the end of the school year isn't far behind. Baseball? Well, I'm hoping that goes into late May and/or early June. We're on a nice little winning streak right now and gave an undefeated team their first loss of the season yesterday. It was a good day. Overall, our record is 15-2 at the halfway point of the regular season. I'm hoping the second half of the season and the playoffs go as well as the first half!
Happy spring, everyone!
