Still sorting out everything here, waiting for answers for my wife.
Another door closed over the Christmas holidays. We bought my son a full size bed to replace his twin bed and his room shrank as a result. Funny how that happened. He had to do some serious housekeeping after we put the bed together and while he was doing it, I was sitting at the computer in the office. He walked in and put all of his autographed baseballs on the desk. "I don't have room for these, do you want them?" I just looked at him, at the balls and back at him.
Long story short, he's pretty much done with collecting baseball...anything. I'm hoping it's a temporary "break", similar to the ones I've taken throughout my hobby career. I'll keep all his stuff with mine and pass it back to him down the road. Hopefully.
I'm a little sad because I was hoping to create a future collector. All things considered, I guess that's what they call a "first world problem". I'll still be collecting, sporadically buying some new stuff, but I'm a big fan of all the people going vintage this year. I think I'll concentrate on organizing, getting out many overdue packages and working on my Rangers collection.
Tomorrow, a door or three opens. Until then...thanks for hanging in there with me.
