What am I going to do?? I'm going to make it official!!! A Prince Fielder post!
AJ over at his blog The Lost Collector posed an interesting question. What do you do when one of your favorite players or a player you have a PC for goes to a new team? And it's great timing because when I heard the news yesterday it's exactly what I thought about my Prince Fielder collection. I never officially had him as a personal PC. If you've read the blog before you'll notice I didn't have him up on the Who I Collect. Sure he gets collected by default since he was a Brewer. It got me thinking why when he was obviously one of the two best players on the team didn't I have a PC for him? I don't know. I mean it's not like I didn't collect him, I have a huge stack of Prince Fielder cards and some really nice stuff too. Maybe it's that I didn't need another focus. But I've decided to make it official and I've made my decision on the fate my collecting Prince Fielder. He shall be added! And I do plan to keep collecting his cards. So it's official. Prince now has his name officially up on the side board of Who I Collect. I really don't know why it took him signing with another team to get me to take the plunge. I guess it also begs the question if he had gone to another team would I still feel the same way? I guess we'll never know. I wish him all the best and I hope he has a great long career with the Tigers.
