Between the lack of time, and the need to reign in some of my card spending has caused me to kind of ignore the blog for the past couple of weeks. I actually had quite a bit of time on my hands last Sunday that could have been used to write a post or three, but instead I decided to follow the lead of Brian at PATP and do a little reorganizing myself.
I haven't gone completely cold turkey, there have been a couple of small purchases on Sportlots and COMC.com that have amounted to a week's worth of budget. When that is spread over a couple of weeks, you can tell that I've cut back.
I've tried to focus my purchases on sets that I would like to complete sooner rather than later. The Sportlots purchase was small, just 8 cards. But what it did is complete 2 sets, which in turn will generate a couple more posts.
I had quite the trio of cards left to complete '15 series 1. They feature 5 pretty damn good players, and getting them at the 18 cent base price each was superb.
While many others put this set to bed months ago, I put off finishing this set until I finally got sick of looking at the group of 5 #'s on my want list page. I like the Jon Jay card, and I'll be interested to see if it makes my top 5 cards for '14 series 2 post.
I need to make a more concerted effort of posting on a regular basis. When the Night Owl notices that you've been gone, and mentions it on his blog, you know you've been away for too long.
Let's see if I can get back on a more regular posting regimen....
thanks for reading, Robert
