A big thank you.

You'll notice I put up a counter for this years trades.  I did one last year too.  Right now I'm sitting at 13 with a few more probably coming up soon.  Most of those came from trading stuff out of my Series 1 Jumbo box with a bunch of you.  Most of the trades were pretty simple, not that they weren't great. Just some stuff I needed or wanted for stuff they needed or wanted.  I did snag a few great cards out of the deal though.  I've since put all the cards in their respective spots in the collection and I've quickly forgot to do a trade post or even a thank you, although most of the time I do email to say that I got the cards and thank you.  So I just want to say thanks to all 13 of you who traded with me in the last couple of months and I look forward to more trades.

Next week I'm headed down to the lower 48 to see some family.  The wife and I will be taking in a Cubs game and a couple Brewers games.  It just worked out that the Cubs play the Brewers when we are going to Wrigley and that the Brewers are playing the Cubs at Miller Park.  It should be fun.  My wife is a terrible Cubs fan, but swears that they are her team, she has hats to prove it, but I doubt she could name a single person currently on the team.  I've never been to Miller Park, so I'm excited about that.  I'd been to plenty of games at County Stadium, but have yet to make it down to a Brewers game in their new home.  This will be the first time in a long time I'm down in Wisconsin during baseball season.

So I'll be hanging up the Be Back Soon sign for a couple of weeks, but hopefully should have some good stories to tell from the trip.

Thanks again everybody and thanks for reading.



  1. Have fun! I'd say I'm jealous, but I'm going to Disney in October with my family. At least you'll have some cards waiting for you in your mailbox when you return.

    1. Thanks Colbey, I'm really looking forward to the break tomorrow, especially since I also go the White Sox as my second team.
