A few folks have asked for more information on what I'm doing here with the blog. Essentially the gist is as follows.
I've decided that I will be exiting the hobby soon and that will coincide with my birthday next May which will be my 40th. Waxing and waning interest have led to much introspection. After deliberations I have decided that I will focus my free time and resources toward other avenues.
I did think it would be nice to have one big last fun day with cards and go wild one last time.
So I decided I would spend most of this year and early next year creating a horde of boxes and packs for that one big hurrah next year. Once I have had that fun a couple of things will be happening. There will be a great contest to guess how many hits I got to pull. But more importantly will be the giving away of the hits. Financially it wont be feasible to give away all the base a d I have identified a source to donate all the base cards to for charity. There will be an opportunity to claim teams prior to my break next May. I reserve the right to keep up to 10 cards from the total break. Only if it's something that really speaks to me will I keep anything as I've been diluting my PC in several ways recently. There will be contests along the way as well as updates on what I've added to my "pack stack". I thank everyone for coming along on this farewell journey and look
forward to spreading the love next May as I say goodbye. To end today here is a picture of my current vault. Top shelf is loose packs on the left and cases on the right. Shelf two is all boxes I've shared so far and shelf three are boxes I've yet to share on the blog.
In my dream home, there's a closet that closely resembles this one :)ReplyDelete
Any hints to what other avenues you'll be focusing your free time on? Or is it top secret stuff?
Oh no. No secrets. Just want to devote more time to friends and family. On the financial end I can focus on more retirement driven planningReplyDelete
That's awesome! I probably need to start shifting my focus sooner than later.Delete
Thanks for the details! It must have been a tough decision with an impressive collection like that.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the picture and all the good times!ReplyDelete
How long do ya think it will take you bust open all of those boxes?ReplyDelete
Right now I think about 6 hours. Maybe 10 when I'm doneDelete
You already know how I feel about this. Both a happy and sad day. But this should be fun to witnessReplyDelete
Are you taking donations of unopened materialReplyDelete
I would gladly accept any donations to the cause Mark.Delete
Sweet, a WCW box with DDP!ReplyDelete
We're gonna need a bigger shelf! Thanks for the pic!ReplyDelete
Good luck to you in your other endeavors and thanks for what you have done with your blog.ReplyDelete
Will there be video of the breaks? Can I want see how tired your fingers are at the end as opposed to the beginning. :)ReplyDelete
May video some of the bigger boxes. Likely wont be muchDelete
Will you be moving into the same retirement home as me?ReplyDelete
Yes I'll behind the last door on the left.Delete
That's going to be such a great last pack ripping session. Seems like a lot of people are trying to pare down their collection (myself included). This is a way to do it in style!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the boxes!ReplyDelete
