There's big news here at Collector's Crack world headquarters. That news is that the wife and I are expecting our first child. Sometime around mid-March. A boy and I'm pretty excited about it. What does that mean here at World Headquarters? Well about 3 years ago we bought our first house. A small 2 bedroom in a nice quite part of Anchorage. I was excited about that since I was able to steal, err, use the second bedroom as my art studio man cave. Well now that we have a little one on the way that room will soon be his room. So I thought I'd take a moment and honor my awesome man cave.
I posted this photo way back in December of 2010 right after we started moving in. I had all intentions of posting more photos of the room after I got stuff sorted out, but that never happened. You can read that post from long ago here.
I had stuffed a lot of things in that room. And with a little elbow grease and some thrift store furniture it's been a really cozy place to blog, scan stuff, sell stuff, sort stuff, break boxes, put sets together, and occasionally draw. If you want to see some of my art work head on over to the 13 Tenets of Cynicalbuddism.
The book case holds sets in progress, player collections, Brewers and Packers team sets and other misc. stuff. The desk is a cheap thrift store buy, but it holds my large format scanner, printer and a ton of other stuff.
I built the bookshelf myself, even earthquake proofed it. Down on the bottom it's mostly extras from various years. The middle holds my Brewers team sets and small monster boxes with a few player collections and other various stuff. I also have a section of sets I'm actively putting together.
Up top we have my main player collections of Robin Yount and Brett Favre. There are also other team set binders and way up top we have some more set building boxes. I'm slowly working on finishing all the Topps sets from 1981 to 1993, I have most of my needs list up on the side bar under Help me Complete a set.
Here we have my wall of awesome. That's my complete 1975 Hostess box with my favorite player Mr. Robin Yount's rookie card on it. There is also a complete 1977 Burger Chef box, and of course my since I'm a proud shareholder of the Green Bay Packers my stock certificate.
I took this picture the other night, just to show how crowded the table can get.
