congrats on 300, and i know what you mean on 2 fronts... i always dive in "all out" on a product, and lack the patience that old sets requires. I've also been grabbing old cards - all mets, really - on eBay lately... I'm not sure exactly what my "grand plan" is - but it is definitely something i am enjoying right now... except for the fact that the shipping adds so much percentage-wise to the price of the cards.Grand Plan?? Is there such a thing as a Grand Plan for collecting? It's funny how a comment from a fellow collector can make you think about the way you collect, or even what you collect.
If you've read my blog at all, you'll know that I started with working on some "older" sets that I had bought packs of while I was collecting casually over the past few years. As the past several months have gone by, I've found other sets, developed some insane ideas and been tempted by cards that have been sent to me, via trade or blogger generosity.
Kev's comment really got me thinking. Is there anyone out there that actually has a plan when it comes to collecting? I'm sure that the organized and the devoted collectors do.
Now you see, every time I sit down and say to myself that I've got to start focusing on finishing sets such as this:
|Yes, I did get this for 99 cents in case you were wondering|
|Still one of my favorites, thanks Nachos!|
I've discovered so damn much over the past months while blogging that I want to devour it all (think Cookie Monster again). Maybe a grand plan is something I need to keep my focus? I don't know, but it's funny how one comment can make you think, and come up with a blog post at the same time.
Kev, thanks for the inspiration...
Thanks for reading, Robert
