That's the word I see floating around the blog-o-you know what. People are bored with cards, bored with blogging and bored with the hobby in general.
Well, I'm not. Not with the hobby at least. Sure, 2010 releases are few and far between and that's a problem. I am tired of Topps Series 1, but I'm still having fun with the MCG site. Lots of trading and turning unwanted cards into wanted ones.
For everyone who was tired of too many products hitting the shelves, how do you feel now? The pendulum has swung ALL the way to the other side now and you can't find enough new product to keep you excited. Chicle isn't doing it for me (maybe because I haven't opened any).
I'm not tired of blogging even though it's been a little tougher coming up with topic ideas. As I approach 400 posts, I'm not sure if I have it in me to be around to celebrate even a one year anniversary in October, but I'm going stop worrying so much about having two posts every day and go with whatever happens. This is supposed to be fun, not feel like a chore. So far it's still fun.
I'm not tired of the hobby. This lull in new product is giving me a chance to focus on doing some organizing, put together some wantlists and sort more cards into trade piles. More importantly, I'm getting back in touch with what I really love...vintage cards. I'm in the beginning stages of putting together the '73 set and very slowly starting to pick up some '65s as well. Between those sets and trying to get a complete checklist for the Senators, that's enough to keep me from getting bored.
Still...I'm ready for Topps Series 2.
