A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

I Have Been a Bad Blogger...Here Is My Penance

I have had a sort of busy week so it has been several days since my last post, which I had hoped wouldn't happen for a little while.  But it happened, so I'll not dwell on it and move on to create fantastic reading material for my millions upon millions of readers (well 12 of you anyway).  This is just going to be a Larry King-style bullet point post.

  1. The voting for the Rock Star left handed reliever is extremely close among all five nominees, closest so far.  If you haven't voted, please do so before voting ends on Saturday afternoon
  2. I have gotten several trade packages in the mail in the last month or so and I would to thank them all collectively now.  This will be my final non-posted trade thank you, due to the next bullet.
  3. I am scheduled to get my federal tax refund on Monday.  Within 24 hours of getting it, I will be buying a scanner.  Business is about to pick up.
  4. Much like last year, I still don't have 2012 Topps available in my neck of the woods.  It is one of the main reasons I haven't posted.  I have been trying to keep a low profile to avoid seeing the entire set before I have it in hand.  That obviously failed, but I'll deal with it.  There have been worse tragedies in the world.
  5. From the ones I have seen, the Rockies don't have a single great looking card in 2012 Topps Series 1.  I will get more in depth on this issue when I get my cards from Colbey's break in a week or so.
  6. Reed Johnson (and the birds) is my very early nominee for card of the year.
  7. Mail went out to several of you on Thursday.  Sorry for being a bit slow with return packages, but like I said earlier it's been a busy week.
  8. Am I the only one that will NOT be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday?  Much like last year, I have no interest in either team and don't want to root for either team.  Can't they just both lose?
  9. The commercial with the dogs barking the Star Wars theme sucks.  You can't really even hear the song that much and it is just annoying already.  And it hasn't even aired yet.

Okay not exactly Larry King-style because I stayed on point the whole time, but you get the gist.  Thanx for reading.

I don't know if you looked over my post on the box break I just did, but the Rockies kicked butt the break. You'll have to get with PlayatthePlate and see what you can talk him out of.

I totally agree with you on the Reed Johnson card. I saw it on A Rookie Baseball Card Collector first and it's still my favorite, enough so that I ordered a Cubs set just to get it. We used to live across the street from a park and the same kind of gull used to appear there but it was usually first thing in the morning rather than late afternoon.

I don't know, I like the Fowler card this year better than last year's. And, coincidentally, I like the Hochevar photo this year more than I liked last year's.
