It's nice, I mean, February through May I basically worked all weekeds to some extent. June has been busy, but getting a couple actual full weekends has been nice. I have been able to actually spend time with the kids, rather than just see them around the basement as I have been working, and it has given me a bit of time to actually get a bit caught up on some card stuff - sorting and putting cards away is very therapeutic.
Now, the weather outside is at times a bit hotter than I'd prefer, but since there is still not too much reason to go out, not much of an issue, but now that I am not working as much, I feel the pull of wanting to "go", a bit more.
Speaking of go, these all get to go right into the collection and slowly walk the percentage completion on this set closer and closer to 40%.
Best of the bunch is the Garver mid-swing one, but the best card of the pack is...
Now, let me separate - I like the card as the inserts are great. I still am not a big fan of Martinez - some things, like Zimmer throwing - just never become something easy to get over and forget. I know I am someone who holds grudges and onto things like this probably too long, but that's just me.
Would have been much easier to like the guy without that incident.
Heck, I still have a hard time letting the Alomar spitting incident go, and I like Alomar a whole lot more than I ever liked Pedro.
