I am 22 today. I am an old man. My life up until this point?
My card collecting since I re-entered the hobby about a year ago?
Much, much more successful. Which is probably why I spend much too much money on cards more often than I should.
Thank you to everyone who has entered my contest, played pimp and spread the word on it, and answered some easy bonus questions. A few quick notes on said contest. First, Bonus Questions # 2 and # 3 are still open for anyone who has yet to answer them and pick up some extra entries. If you have yet to actually enter the contest itself, you can still do that. And if you have yet to, you can still promote the contest if you'd like.
And for those of you who have read this far, there is one more opportunity to pick up another entry as this contest quickly winds its way to completion. One person can pick up an extra entry this time around, and only one. I need a favor.
I need someone to get me in contact with Nick Jacoby. You know, of Ginter cracking and Cardboard Overload fame. We have exchanged e-mails a few times about a trade, but I haven't heard back from him in about four months. And I need to know where our proposed trade stands. Because I really want what he was offering. So if anyone can reconnect me with him, I'd appreciate it. And mention to him why you're inquiring, and for him to mention your name to me, and I will give you a bonus entry.
That may seem cheap, but hey, I hate trade talks breaking down.
I understand that may make some of you uncomfortable, and I understand if you have no interest in this bonus possibility. But if you do have a direct line to him, maybe something along the lines of, "Hey, I know this cool cat who has a bunch of great Ginter stuff to offer you, you should totally hit him up." That would be just swell.
Just for anyone who may not already know, my future wife, who you see above, is the sister of Dodgers' reliever Blake Hawksworth. Needless to say, I'm simply smitten. If anyone can put me into contact with her (and perhaps get me a date) you can just have most of my cards.
They're not that important to me.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone.
