The 2015 in review
Since the end of the year is approaching, it's time for me to align all the figures and prepare the 2015 collecting balance.
This year has been pretty rich in terms of ebay purchases (the majority of them have been posted), but most importantly it's been a year rich of trades.
While in 2014 my only trading partner was Jeroen aka the dutch card guy , I reached out to some new fellow collectors, and not only the europe-based ones!
In fact, I'm now a proud trading partner of Kevin,aka the card papoy , with whom I already exchange a couple of nice packages.
I've also crossed the ocean, reaching collectors such as Tony at offhiatusbaseball , John at johnnnystradingspot, and Charlie from lifetimetoppsproject who posted this nice post describing the trade.
There's also Matt from the Uk, whom I was able to contact thanks to previous trades performed by Jeroen, and that's probably going to start his own blog...
As i said in one of my older posts, I'm not a social person at all, but since I found so many new friends and cards suppliers alternative to ebay, I'm happy to say that starting this blog was a very cool idea! I really enjoy reading your blogs, and writing the mine as well.
I'm thinking about posting a special parade of the most cheap cards I was able to snag off ebay in 2015, in order to prove that I'm not bragging when I say that I picked up this auto or that patch for a buck or two..
Thanks to eveyone of you, trading partners and readers (past, present and future) of this humble blog!
Since I usually end every post with at least a pic from a recent pickup, here's the latest...
It's a 1999 Upper Deck Retro autograph of Steve Garvey, not numbered, and seems to have some creasings on it (or maybe it's just the picture)..but hey, a card like this for a dollar it's a no brainer for me!
Best regards, happy Holidays to all of you and keep collecting!
