“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”

This morning I got a new comment on this blog. It was from William and it came to me via e-mail on my iPhone.

It read: Where have you gone? I loved reading this blog!!

So I thought, "Had it really been that long since my last post?" Answer: Nearly five months.

At one time I tried to post something every day. Then it became every other day. I woke up every morning to see if someone had commented on my latest post. Whenever they did, it gave me confidence that at least someone was actually reading this silly thing.

Five months ago, I was an eBay monster searching for poor old baseball cards and spending a good amount of money on them. Today, not as much.

It's been a while since I last bought a baseball card on the Internet.

Does this mean I've grown up and no longer care about these little pieces of cardboard? Nope, I've been collecting since I was a little kid and am not going to stop now.

In fact, William may have given me the boost to post regularly again. Thanks William.

Oh, and about that poor old old baseball card: It's a lovely Cuban card with plenty of creases, dings and even what appears to be a hole that was at one time an insect's lunch.

Just the kind of card I like.

HA! Glad I could help. I really enjoy reading it. What has helped me stay motivated on my blog is the stats feature on the dashboard. Have you checked it? I highly recommend!!

Good to see another post. I was beginning to worry.

Nice choice! Never heard of the Miami Sun Sox, though they were apparently a Dodgers farm team under (among others) Pepper Martin.
