It has been a while...

I haven't posted in a few weeks as work and home life have gotten crazy. Have to cut somewhere and it wasn't card purchases or Facebook games (I may be addicted to Mafia Wars) so the blog suffered a little bit.

Still been focusing my collection on McCovey, Lott and USC Football. Also working on the new Topps Football set. Just made a trade to get the last base card. Still need a few cheerleader cards (what a concept!), a few Topps Town cards and a bunch of Chicle inserts. Trying to plug away with trades right now.

I have added a new area of focus to my collection. I am going to get an Auto or GU card (preferrably Auto) of each baseball HOFer that meets my dreamed up criteria. It really isn't within my budget to hunt down a Ruth, Cobb or Gehrig card so what I have decided to do is to target players who played in a season since 1950 (managers as well). I took out umps and executives and my list now stands at 99 players. My current collection has 38 of them covered with 12 of them being Autos. I have a Gaylord Perry Auto coming in a trade to replace his GU and Frank Robinson & Fergie Jenkins autos coming as well which will get me up to 40. There is some low lying fruit on my list which I will target first while also looking for bargains to replace some of my GU with Autos. I also figure I will set aside some cards of guys I think will be in the HOF soon.

Wish me luck!
