I have to like these one day work weeks and things slowing down.
The second half of 2006 for me was definitely a shift in priorities as trading cards took the back burner to the day job, health, family, and all that other good stuff.
And we still had a bunch of people sign up for OpenChecklist !
Last week, as my Xmas present to myself in cards (only 3rd card purchase in 6 months) I got the 2006 Topps baseball base set with the Mantle GU. Not a lot .. but always a fortune to have it shipped here in the UK.
I thought .. what has this world come to ? Everyone can get a Mantle Game worn and a complete base set for under $100 ? No more opening up hundreds of packs to try for the base set .. and thousands of packs to get the HOF game used ?
Way to go topps for bringing cards back to reality and in the hands of newer and more casual collectors !
Now I'll have to troll through the 250,000 posts since I was most active here and see that others think about the release - while I wait my weeks for it to come here and I can complain about customs tax and all that (will end up being a $50 premium instead of just going to my local Target)
happy holidays to all .. 2007 is around the corner.
