First was a great lot of cards from Nick over at Dime Boxes. The main portion of the envelope was Blue Jays (of course), but Nick actually sent me one card that stood above all the others...
|The blurry baseballs are a little disconcerting|
My first card of Jim Thome from another blogger. No doubt pulled from one of the myriad of dime boxes that Nick frequents, this card becomes the 10th base card in my Jim Thome collection.
The other card that stood out for me this week was part of the envelope that Max from the Starting Nine blog sent over. It was the lone hockey card in the envelope, and seeing this instantly got my mind turning.
Seeing this card reminded me that anyone can sit behind a keyboard and a computer monitor and be negative. I've done it myself on more than 1 occasion, and even sometimes end up regretting the post later on, because of the negativity.
Hopefully the sight of this one card will remind me in the future of one of the reasons I write as often as I do.
I enjoy collecting cards, and I enjoy writing about them. The world is full of negatives, why should our hobby be one of them.
Thanks for reading, Robert
