*sits down and takes a sip. Mmmm coffee. nothing hits home better than coffee on an early morning of not a lot of sleep. But, with some coffee and some cards to do, it's time to wake up and get this thing done*
I have been slacking on posts on here as of recent but as I stated before, my main focus is on Matt's Wonderful Blog Of Hobbies as this one is just a side blog for when I have time.
I sometimes wonder if I am making a mistake trying to keep up on three blogs and I may be, but for now I will see how it goes.
I will admit that somedays trying to keep up makes me feel like this.
All I know is that this blog has given a few opportunities that none of my others have so I sometimes feel I owe it to this blog to continue on.
One of those great opportunities it has given me is being able to trade with reader Oren. I think Oren discovered Cards Over Coffee back at the beginning of the year and about that time we began our trading and as of recent, that trading has really revved up recently as I am more than one behind on posting. Today's mail day is actually turning out to be two trades ago, so I figured it was time to finally get this posted.
*takes a sip, begins to show off the mail day*
Our trades usually have a theme to them, well to an extent.
The main focus of today's mail day was 90's baseball inserts.
1997 Upper Deck Rock Solid Foundations, both helped my set chase.
1998 Upper Deck National Pride Rey Ordonez
1997 Donruss Longball Leaders Mo Vaughn
And then there were a few other cards involved in this trade including that Disney Villains base above.
1996 Summitt Premium Stock base
2002 Topps The Simpsons Maggie Sticker (I loved watching The Simpsons in the 90's, really need to get back into watching them again)
Another big thanks goes out to my buddy Oren for this trade.
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
I hope to get caught up on some other mail days along with the next Oren one as well soon. It can sometimes be tough to figure out which blog to post what on which is where some of the frustrations of running so many come into play. Which is why it's so much easier to run just one.
The only thing that is great to have more than one of, is cups of coffee.
