Welcome to my blog. I want the Josh Willingham cards. All of them.

Farewell for now

First let me say congratulations to Matt from Bob Walk the Plank who took down the World Cup of Trading in walk away fashion.  Mark and Douglas will also be receiving a package from me in the future.  Thanks to everyone that participated!

It is after great consideration that I have decided its a good time to step away from blogging.  My blog has been successful at being a "look at these cards" blog and a "giving stuff away" blog.
However, providing consistent and quality posts has been spotty at best.  Deadlines I have set forth and promised on the blog have often went by the wayside and that bothers me.

The best place for me is in the shadows as a mysterious robin hood esque card guy.  That's what I enjoy the most when getting the response from someone who had their day brightened by my efforts.

I will continue to follow the blogs and have no plans of ceasing my card giving but I plan to step away from the pressure of feeling like I'm not putting a good blog product out there for everyone to enjoy.

I did graduate from the school of never say never.  I don't anticipate a return anytime soon or perhaps ever but I won't complete shut that door.

The relief of just being a reader or commenter will be therapeutic for me I believe.

I have met some incredible folks through this blog and for that I'm mighty thankful!  I want to say Thank You to anyone that has ever read this blog, anyone that's every been patient with me, and everyone that makes up this community.  It is sincerely been a pleasure.

Until next time,

Wes

  3. Glad to hear you are not losing interest in the hobby, but still hard to see another blog being shut down, even maybe temporarily. I do understand though. I'm kind of in the same position as far as posting. I still have to post the great cards you sent me last July ! It's coming soon I promise !

    1. Yes, I also still owe you. I'm still trying to build up the courage to crack into the Wampa.

      Now that you finished off the '69 set, what are you working on now? My retaliation resources have been completely depleted. Throw me a bone here!

  12. Enjoy the time away watching the Tide Roll like they did yesterday! I'm putting a package together for you as we speak. Since you said above you're in the infant stages of 1984 Topps, shoot me an e-mail with what you need.

    Take care and don't stay away long.
