Look at all the cards I bought!
That's right, you just looked at all the cards from all the packs I've busted in the last month! Exciting huh?
No, you're computer is not messing up. I've been pack-free for over a month. It's refreshing actually. I haven't been disappointed one single time in the money I spent or the cards I got. I DID buy three rack packs, but those are for the winners of the SEPTEMBER contest, and I'll be getting those in the mail eventually.
I didn't set out to go cold turkey on the card aisle, but it did coincide with my flame out about 6 weeks ago. I can't say I've really missed pulling a bunch of cards I don't want. I don't know how long this self-imposed buying freeeze will continue either. I'm inclined to see how long I can hold out.
The good thing is I can still trade.
Trading is more fun than opening packs anyway.
You can get sweet cards like this 1973 Topps Jeff Burroughs. I was only three when these came out so I didn't bust any packs. It's nice to get these vintage Rangers in trades.
I also don't have to waste money pulling unwanted relics when I can trade for all the fake Ranger relics I can handle! Sweet!!!
The cards I just posted came from my great trading partner Jeremy over at No One's Going to Read This Blog. You should be reading if you're not.
