I am part of a contingent of folk that are called collectors. In this internet age, it's a very simple process of see card, click on card, buy card. This is especially true when a some promotion is occurring like free shipping or dehydrated cookies with every purchase or event tickets to go wild turkey riding (may or may not be a real thing).
The smattering of cards I;m about to present represent some of the many different directions that I have been pursuing in my collection over the past 12-18 months. The only thing that they have in common is that they are all cards of the collectible variety.
1994 Flair Inserts: As a side project, I am trying to put together the 1994 Flair master set. There are no parallels, and I have both A-Rod rookies in my possession (both pulled from packs, score). I was really thrilled to get these hot glove cards. Remember when die-cuts were all the rage with many shapes and interesting patterns? You should, since it was just last year when this craze got started again. Have you noticed that fads and fashions are cyclical? But, if there's one thing that will never go out of style, it's the word "hot". I call everything hot, don't you? (/sarcasm).....In all seriousness, I was thrilled to be able to acquire the Maddux. Unfortunately, I still need the Ripken and Griffey for this set.
As a card blog, I find I don't talk about my collection that much. Here's a glimpse of one slice of The Other World pie, mixed with boysenberry, it just might be a crowd pleaser.
