I loved it all. It was great to see the enthusiasm over the new product. The base cards really do look good.
Despite all that, I think I'm going to pass. It's not fitting into the plans right at the moment. Don't let me spoil the party though, I need to see those cards on your posts/tweets. Yes, it's difficult for me to see everyone out there having a blast with the new toys, but I'm going to do my best to stick to my 1st goal that I posted on January 1st.
1. 2013 will be the year of Heritage, and nothing else. Why Heritage only? Well, this year's design will mimic the '64 Topps set, which is one of my favorites. And if I'm going to go after only one set this year, it's got to be something I like, correct?Now that I reread the goal, I probably should clarify and say that Heritage will be the only 2013 product I attempt to build. The less I spend on current baseball products, the more I will have to spend on the vintage sets that I really have enjoyed building over the past several months.
Sets such as 1973 Topps:

There are also some more modern sets that I'm working on, such as 2008 Masterpieces:
|Thank you Jeroen!|
Not to be outdone, there's always the Blue Jays to keep me busy...
|Brian, thank you for the Jays!!|
Who knows? Maybe I'll cave in later on this year and chase the flagship. I have a reputation for being weak.
At least I got through day 1 without my truck making a left turn into the Wal-Mart parking lot. There's hope for me yet.
Thanks for reading, Robert
