Hello stranger.

When I jumped into the blogging world of card collectors, my eyes were opened to new things I had never experienced before. I started looking at all my cards differently and deciding to collect in a far different manner. I learned about player collections, oddballs and the greatness of a penny, nickel, dime and quarter box at card shows. I found a way to let go of cards I wasn't too attached to because someone else would really like it, and send me back something I would really like. I learned about dropping cards on people just because it was fun. And I found out about box/case breaks.

Getting in on group breaks have been one of the more fun things to be a part of. It's a great way to get more of what I really want at a cost that fits my needs. My favorite breaker was Sam at The Daily Dimwit. Sam's a rare breed, being an Astro fan. You don't find too many of them. Sam and I have a kinship in the sense that we have each watched our beloved teams get royally screwed my Topps in recent releases, giving a card to some AA Yankee prospect over a proven daily player on either of our teams. Sam got a bit disenfranchised with it all and took a little break.  Luckily, the love of the hobby brought him back, and Sam is a great read and an even better trader.

Sam and I are each working on the 2013 Panini Golden Age set. So we were able to help each other out with some commons. Rice and Bigfoot are the last two base cards I needed for the set.

He also hooked me up with about 3 dozen minis towards the set. Oh, Jane Russell......

Thanks a bunch, Sam. Now, how about getting back into some group breaks?
