Where have you been??

I don't know if you have even realized that I really haven't been posting much lately. I know that I was giddy about being able to complete my life long dream of collecting all the Mariners cards since they started in 1977. My biggest problem is a complete lack of time, and some inspiration.

 I have really been doing so much time at work that I haven't even had time to look at cards. We have been so short handed that most days have 10-12 hours days. My wife continues to work as many hours or more that I do. My son had a very busy summer baseball season that was a blast to watch. He has now started high school and is a member of the Varsity golf team, so matches are taking time after work to watch him play. I have been looking at the piles and boxes of all the cards that I have collecting over the many years. I'm hoping that in the next couple months as work slows I can organize. I am contemplating whether to donate, sell, or sends cards as a gift to people. I think selling would be a hassle. I will come to something to do with them.

This is how I continue to feel about my Mariners year after year. Completely embarrassed...

I am looking forward to seeing how few cards my Mariners will have in the soon to come Update set from Topps. I think there might be a few rookies to see cards, but we didn't bring anyone new in. Sadly we have had another losing season, and I think it its time to change up the leadership on the bench. I'm hoping to bring in some players that can hit and get us some offense.

I am here and I'm still reading others when I can. I hope that all my great fellow bloggers will remember me when Update cards come out and can help me with the few Mariners that might come out.


  1. I'll keep you in mind! Good to see a post from you.

  2. I have some Mariners saved for you. If I ever catch up to the people I owe, I'll be sending some off.

  3. I pulled an auto of Brandon Maurer from 2013 Topps Chrome that I can send your way...
