Hobby in a half-shell...

First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone who has brought me 1000+ page views!
I'm grateful for y'all taking the time to stop by.

Now, on to my first completed twitter trade!

My twitter account had lain dormant for years, until I got back into it mainly to keep up with sports stuff.
Very soon thereafter, I started following hobby related accounts.
I'm not sure who followed who (first) but I met a fellow Cardinals fan from across the pond; Andy, author of The Wax Fantastic.(He's also an Orioles fan, but I'm alright with that)
Andy does a great job of keeping up with product reviews, and if you're not following his blog...
Well, I highly recommend it.

I sent some Cardinals his way (you can read the story here), he reciprocated with some cards of another variety:

I know you can't tell it from the scans, but all these cards are foil!

This 100-card set has foil parallels, and thanks to Andy; I'm only 9 cards away from completing that set!
(If you have some of these, and want to know which ones I need; check the "Wants" page in the top bar.)

When I was in college I got 100 booster packs for $25, and I've been working on trying to piece the set together ever since. 
Via some forums, I made trades with other collectors in Spain and New Zealand! 
Now I've added the UK to that list, my international stardom is growing! (Thanks Andy!)

Thanks for stopping by!
Staying unabashed and interested, 

PS- For a record of hits I already have, there is a link on the right-hand side of the blog!

Turtle Power!

Have I mentioned that I really like that he's doing monthly contests this time around?
Because I am.

Thanks for stopping by!
