Oops I did it again...

I really can't help myself.

I've quickly become addicted to it.  I can't get enough of it.

It sort of consumes my every waking moment.

I may need a 12 step program to get over it.

What is IT?  IT is my trips to the retired LCS owner's house.  I went again yesterday.  I spent a couple of hours looking through cards and telling stories with my friend.

Oh yea, I bought a few cards too.

Most of the stuff I picked up was just a variety of Rangers.  I love these old Flair designs.  The cards feel nice and the uniform number in the background is very interesting.

He has a whole mess of these Topps Tek cards.  I picked out all the Rangers I could find.  This set is more confusing than 2008 Moments and Milestones.

This is some sort of reprint that came out in 2001.  I think he has a couple of these complete sets.

I'm always happy to pick up any Chrome Rangers.

This nifty little die cut is a Texas Rangers team checklist from 1998 Pacific.

What are you staring at?  This old thing?  It's just a 1970 Topps Nolan Ryan.

This one will sit nicely with the '68 and '69 Ryans I picked up from my friend on my visit last week.  It's not perfect and has a little ding on the top edge and a slight crease on the back right edge.  Still, I can't complain for the price I paid.

That's it for today and maybe the weekend.  I'm feeling sick again so I might just lay low the next couple of days.
