Second, There hasn't been much going on in the Baseball card world that has me really interested right now. No affordable (Topps and Bowman Sterling for example) or well designed (i.e. Bowman Platinum) product for me to want to shell out some money.
Third, I've been dealing with my car breaking down so I bit the bullet and purchased a new (new to me) truck. Hopefully making the payments and insurance won't eat into my card budget(as small as it is already).
Trading has been rather slow recently. I guess everyone is slowly getting over their "holiday hangover". If you are interested in a trade, I'd love to hear from you. I sent a trade request or two out so I'm waiting to hear back. I should have some coming my way in the mail, so hopefully I'll have something to post about soon. Orioles FanFest is coming up at the end of the month so hopefully I'll be able to show the faithful readers some cool things from that. With the season starting up I'm sure I'll have more interesting things to write about too.
