It's been a fun ride...

After much debate and struggle, I've decided it's the end. Not just for the blog, but for my collecting overall. A post by The Night Owl the other day helped me realize that I don't even get excited about the hits anymore, it's all a chore. 

The tracking, the spending, the time spent organizing, the posting, the mailing. It all just adds stress to my life that has become too full of other things. So it's time to shut it down and focus on those other things that are more important to me.

SuperTraders, you will all be getting a package from me in the near future. If you have sent me cards or not, you will be getting a package that I hope you all will enjoy. Anyone with a pending trade with me, email me and let's get it finalized. 

For those who have been faithful trading partners, thanks. For those who read this crap through the past few years, thanks even more! I hope the hobby continues to nurture new and excited collectors! Thanks to the friends I've made in this time and I'll still be reading your blogs, there are a bunch of great ones and I sure hope that for a small time you all thought I was at least one of the decent ones.

  1. Won't be the same without you, but I understand. You still have a couple cards you were holding onto for me (Jim Abbott and Devin Funchess autos) and I have some things I was gonna send your way (cards you picked out from COMC, a couple Silks, other stuff). Can I still send those your way to get the two we discussed?

    Thanks for being such a great blogger and trader!

  9. Oh man... 2nd blog in the past 15 minutes that's shutting its doors. Hope you find something else to keep you entertained. Your second paragraph definitely hit home. There are days where I seriously have the same exact thoughts.

  12. You still get all my Astros. Permanently. That's not up for discussion. Also, when are you coming to town. We need to get drinks to toast your retirement. lol.

    Seriously though, thank you for reintroducing me to this hobby. I credit you with a large percentage of my collection at this point. Thank you my friend, it was a ton of fun!
