800

That is a nice round number. According to the Hall of Fame, Josh Gibson hit almost 800 homeruns. Well, I'm not Josh Gibson, but I just hit 800 posts.

I'm astonished by that number to be honest with you. I've had a rough time posting consistently in the last month or so, but I finally got here.

I just want to thank everyone for reading, commenting and giving me a reason to blog in the first place. The blog started out as a way to post trades and share funny stuff (usually only to me) and it has become a fun part of my day.

I've made a ton of trades, a bunch of friends and had more fun with this hobby than in all the years before I found the blogging community. I've held a lot of contests, won more than my share and joined more group breaks than I thought possible.

Most of all, thanks to my fellow bloggers and collectors, I've been able to enjoy a hobby with my son that goes beyond video games and Ipods. It's been a great journey and I look forward to many more posts, both mine and yours.

Tomorrow I'll have the winner of the February contest and a Fairfield repack that was a pleasant surprise.

Thanks again for your support and comments.

  2. By the way I have no idea what "injkesanse" is. I don't know how I managed to misspell that word.
