A Formal Goodbye

It’s been several months since I’ve written anything on here. I have thought about this blog many times since my last post but never could get around to writing something up. I know I promised to return in the offseason and write about current baseball-related news, but obviously that didn’t work out.

So why did I fall through on my promise? Well the biggest reason was that I had just lost all interest what-so-ever in baseball cards. None of the products that came out interested me at all, and I just didn’t care to buy any singles off ebay or make trades anymore. With no new Samardzija or Nomar cards coming out for almost a year, I just gave up. While I still have a decent portion of my collection left (My player PC’s and my ALL my Cubs cards remain) Everything else is gone and I feel alot better that way. I still like baseball cards, and I wont be getting rid of my PC anytime soon, but I certainly don’t feel that same spark I used to get when I would browse ebay or read people’s blogs, drooling over the cards they had featured.

Another big reason for my loss of interest in both cards and this blog is due to my personal life. I have had some major changes occur these past few months that have really detracted me from writing. I got offered a new job; I am now work for Iron Heart Films, a movie and commercial producing company based in Los Angeles, so I do alot more traveling now. Another great thing that has happened to me is that I am now engaged to my longtime girlfriend, and are set to get married next fall. While she is very supportive of my collection and my baseball obsession in general, collecting has just seem to have taken a back seat to the other things going on in my life.

So with everything going on in my life, I have decided to formally cut ties with the blog I have grown to love. It has been one awesome ride, while meeting many new friends and making many great trades along the way. Without all the support from my readers and fellow bloggers, I wouldn’t own some of the amazing cards that are currently sitting in my collection today. So thanks to everyone out their for making this blog such a fun and exciting success!

and who knows? Maybe I will return to part-time writing in the near future….

But until then, thanks for the memories and keep the hobby alive!
