I have been posting quite a bit more on the Garage lately because of all the weird cards I have been finding. Soccer cards, Johnny Mize HOF cards, some of the first custom cards of all time, and some crazy holograms have all been discussed. But, what about my normal collection? Just because I have half the free world's worth of cards in my garage doesn't mean I haven't been working on my own collection.
I don't have a whole lot to post as far as pictures go. In fact, I have none. I was going to take the time to scan in a bunch of my cool pulls from this year's hockey releases thus far but what is the saying...the road to failure is paved with good intentions? That's me. Actually, nothing has really gotten me that excited to be honest. But again, that's not to say that I am not doing my part for the hobby.
As a set builder, you would think I was well on my way to a complete set. Well you would be wrong. In fact, at this point, I think I have more doubles than I do toward my set. Good Grief! I think I need a couple hundred cards still. In the two boxes I opened from my LCS, half the second box was dupes of the first. Don't even get me started on the "glossy" vs. regular cards that you have to tilt at a 45 degree angle to tell what set it comes from. I know it is supposed to be a low end product but come one, Panini! As far as I'm concerned, you burned me twice.
Since my head hurts, I'm sick, falling asleep, and relishing in the fact that the Eagles are getting beat by a horrible Vikings team, I will continue this little rant later with my foray into Black Diamond, Artifacts, and O-Pee-Chee.
To Be Continued....
