With the exception of 1 post in April to ask for a temporary cease and desist in shipping me packages, this is my first post since March 1st - wow 5 1/2 months. I doubt I have been missed but I have missed sharing my new acquisitions, sharing some Giants love in the blogosphere and staying fully connected with what has been going on in the hobby.
I have had a chance to periodically read some blogs, enter a couple contests and of course I have been spending my monthly card stipend. We are finally settled in Kansas and I have all my cards unpacked (although far from organized) and I have been itching to get back in the game, so I figured this weekend would be a good time to start up the blog again.
I am hoping to contribute something every so often that gets you to click and read. I owe some of the awesomely generous #supertraders members some return packages and hope to free up some space in my smaller than before card room by sending out some flat rate mailers over the next few months. I hear Kansas winters are a little more harsh than those in Southern California so I suspect the bulk of the sorting and mailing my happen in the winter.
In addition to the handful of packages since we got settled in Kansas, I have acquisitions from before my move to share as well. I am so behind that I most likely will never empty out by Blog Stuff scanned card folder but I will probably try.
I haven't been completely absent from the hobby over the last 5 months but I am behind in picking up Giants from some of the newer releases so hopefully a few trades my be in order. With my limited time due to the new job and relocation some of my purchases have shifted from larger quantity purchases to some higher dollar cards that have gotten me excited and hopefully make for a few good posts.
In the spirit of some of the those higher dollar purchases I thought I would share a pretty awesome card I picked up a couple months back:
This Mays completed my 1954 Topps team set so in my typical fashion, I will show the entire team set off:
