There’ll only be two morning coffees this week, I think, with the holiday coming up, but no worries – I have the entire week’s non-roundup entries planned out and 90% written. I’m actually kind of excited about the whole deal. I like the idea of being able to spend time with my family and have a nice, relaxing weekend while still keeping the blog (my baby) updated.
Got some free money out of paypal this past week and got a really nice Topps Chrome Blue Refractor Jordan Zimmermann auto. I think it’ll arrive in the mail today, and I’ll definitely have to show it off here. I may eventually go for the rainbow on that set, but we’ll see how difficult that might be.
Little plug here…my girlfriend’s first book/collection was published this weekend! It’s Kindle-only at the moment, but I’ve heard from a little birdie that real paper copies are on the way very soon, and I’ll have an ad up soon (need to check with her “people” about officially-sanctioned ads and all that nonsense).
Speaking of fiction writing, finally knocked out the outline for my novel and am commencing with the first draft. I’m hoping to find a publisher after the first of the year, but only time will tell.
Picked up an Update rack pack this weekend and managed to score a 1959 card on the million card giveaway. Promptly flipped it for a 59 Senators card. All I need to do is unload the 77 Buckner card and I should have enough cards built up for another shipment of vintage goodness. The MCG has been really kind to me; I hope next year’s version is, as well.
Okay, so let’s see what everyone else was up to this weekend, as I’m running out of time:
- Capewood’s Collections began reviewing 2002 card sets.
- The Greatest 21 Days featured Steve Hosey.
- Can’t Have Too Many Cards showed off a Ron Santo rainbow.
- bdj610 updated us on the state of the card blogroll. It’s good news!
- White Sox Cards continued the Best of Topps series; so did Emerald City Diamond Gems.
- Play at the Plate showed us that Richard Simmons was once an All-Star!
- The Great Sports Name Hall of Fame informed us that, indeed, the Rusty Kuntz postcard is the greatest thing ever.
And that’s all for today. Have a good one!
