Why Do I Consider These Things?

 
*takes a sip of coffee, sits down to type his latest installment on Cards Over Coffee*

I wanted to start off today's post by saying thanks for the well wishes in terms of the kidney stones. I have yet to pass them so still not feeling that great today but trying my best just to push through. I don't get to see my urologist until the 14th so I am praying hard they pass by then. If not I could be staring down surgery once again and I don't really want to head down that road in 2020.

So I don't know if its the pain meds talking or I am going crazy or maybe it's the cards in today's post served up by The Diamond King, but I have an itch to start up an all 90's card blog again. Tell me if you have heard this story from me before.

Picture this, a blog dedicated to cards from 1995-1999 covering all sports, all of my projects, and all of my completions and of course all of my needs. Combine that with some pop culture and 90's cartoons and it sounds like a beautiful harmony. But, once again, would I have the time to make it worth my while? Or would it be another one of my projects that I start and quit?

This is the fork in the road I am at right now with the idea. 

I don't want to start any new projects without doing it right or finding time to do so. On top of all of this craving to start a 90's blog, I really want to expand and do a NY Giants one as well focusing on the biggest collection I have. There are a lot of team blogs, not sure I have seen an NFL one, so I know it would be fun but a lot also to tackle.

Why do I even consider these things?

*takes a sip of coffee, feeling like breakfast may be a good idea soon*

Regardless of which road I take with those ideas, I thought it was finally time to show off rest of the cards that The Diamond King, sent to me. They have been sitting in my drafts for way too long now originally as a mini series but I changed my mind and did this as one post.

There really isn't too much to say about these cards as the cards themselves do the talking,


































If those didn't make you want to start up a 90's card blog, I am surprised. The only way those don't interest you is if you aren't reading this post at all.

Thanks to The Diamond King for one epic mail day I am still working on sorting months later.

As for 90's Cards Over Coffee, sorry was feeling that out, I am not sure what I will do moving forward. I will say I am much wiser than I used to be when it comes to just starting up a blog or two knowing my time restrictions and patience on those blogs to build up. 

This blog isn't quite where I want it to be or even close to be yet, but it's like this raisin toast. It isn't quite as good as my cinnamon raisin bagel, but good enough to keep coming back for more.

Maybe those new ideas turn out to be raisin toast or maybe they will turn out to be slices of bread with what appears to be raisins. For now, I have time and patience to make that decision and in the meantime, I need to focus on getting the "raisin" out of me.

  1. I don’t collect basketball and I want those 1990s inserts. They are easily on a comeback from what I’ve seen. Definitely cool.

    1. A lot of the 90's inserts are, going to be fun to see how full they come back!

  2. Raisin toast! Yum! I don't like bagels. I read the post, of course but these cards don't thrill me and I began collecting in 93! Secret: basketball. It's always neat to see what excites a collector's interest. Net Burners' is a cool die-cut idea though. How could a basketball collector NOT like that?

  3. It's hard to beat 90's Finest--in any sport.

  4. I'd totally read a 90's blog! But I definitely hear you when you think about the time things take. I can barely keep one blog going at a slow pace. 2 or more would kill me.

    1. I used to run more than the two I do, it was too crazy. I attempted to run 5 at once at one point and knew I couldn't do it but tried regardless!

  5. I haven't eaten raisin bread in decades... but it was so delicious as a kid. Might need to grab some the next time I come across it at the grocery store. As for the cards... I loved mid 90's Finest basketball (and hockey). Actually 90's basketball inserts in general were fantastic.

    1. Yes go grab some raisin bread!

      90's basketball inserts may have been the top breed though all 90's inserts rocked. I just wished i had appreciated them more at the time and not the other two sports

  6. I have a few ideas for other blogs, but know that I could never keep up with them the way that I'd like to, hence my just sticking with the one blog, aka the one that I can barely keep up with.

    1. And I have a few blogs but focus mainly on one that doesn't fully interest me as much as the others do lol.
