What I've Done...

As my postings become fewer and farther between, I feel the need to let all three of you know that I'm keeping myself busy. (Yes, YOU are one of the three. But really this post is just for you.) I've been making custom, vintage-ish baseball/business cards for several people. My day job is keeping me busy during the prime art making hours. After work, I have made a few posters for local shows and a couple of tours.

I'm also trying to pare down my card collection to a slightly more manageable size. So far that has consisted entirely of moving boxes from one spot to another. Occasionally, I've opened up a few of the card storage boxes and flipped through the cards. I owe some cards to people, so it is a little depressing. It isn't the thought of parting with cards that is depressing. I truly enjoy sending packages of baseball cards. The depressing part is that I owe packages of cards to people who either: A) are pissed at me because it has been so long since I should have sent the cards, B) have forgotten because it has been so long since I should have sent the cards, Thirdly) no longer read this blog because it has been so long since I should have sent the cards (that, and I never post anymore), and Last but not least) I forgot where I was going with this...

Did I mention I am easily distracted?

Well, here are a few of the posters I've done recently:






If you have any baseball cards you want, let me know. I'm thinking about only keeping my Padres cards.

EDIT: Oh,yeah! I married the girl of my dreams! Made the Save the Date postcards myself.

Wow. That's a lot to take in.

Thinking only of myself (though this comment is just for you) I would be glad to swap some Padres for Mets. Lemme know the scope of this deal.

I would love to send you Padre cards. My collection runs from about 1972 to 1990, then picks up again, sporadically, about 5 years ago. It is clear that you have an almost unhealthy affinity for Bip Roberts. Anyone else that you have a preference for?

Belated congrats on the marriage!

Love your new set too.
