I have a blog???

Whoa, has it really been 4 years since I've posted here?

Let me repeat that for emphasis. 4 years???

Wow, so I guess I should make some sort of excuse for my terrible blogging habits. Um, I moved to Long Island. That's right, Met's country. With a smattering of Yankees fringe groups hanging around. I'll tell ya, it's painful. The cards got packed up in the move and just never got unpacked, I guess. A 4 year break from collecting; I thought was officially over the addiction. Well, a couple of weeks ago we started cleaning out the attic to get rid of stuff and I decided to pull down the boxes. That's exactly where I went wrong... Once I got my dirty mitts back on those cards I knew I couldn't part with them and the pack ripping, shiny card loving bug bit me again.

Which brings us to the present and this blog. I think I'll start posting again, if it's all right with all you non-existent readers. So, get ready for some cheap wax, junk cardboard, and Phillies fun (phun?). As always, if you have any Phillies cards that are burning a hole in your pocket or you're just sick of looking at, I will gladly give them a good home. And I might just have something special to stick in the mailbox for you.

It's good to be back. Even though those bums are in 4th place.


  1. Hi. Night Owl sent me.

    Since you've been gone for 4 years, you don't know me, but I go by the name of Joe Shlabotnik. I've been blogging for 2 years and also working on downsizing my collection. My advice to you is to focus on a little bit at a time, don't let the entirety of what you're working on overwhelm you.

    I'm glad to hear that Long Island can be considered to be "Mets Country". I grew up there but 17 years ago, when nobody was manning the checkpoints at the Jersey crossings, I escaped. At the time I left, it seemed like the Yankee fans were well on the way towards local domination. Can it be true that they haven't? Are there still small groups of Mets rebels holding off the Evil Empire? Please, tell me it's true!
