Back to your Regularly Scheduled Program!

After a week of comic book scans, its back to doing what I created this blog for- talk about my cards.  Before I can do that though, I have a few notes to pass along.  First off- I picked the worst week ever to have Comic Book week.  Sure the turnout was amazing and I loved all the feedback, but the timing was horrible.

"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue."
Next year I need to plan it better.  It ran up against one of the biggest deals of the year.  I mean that in all sincerity.  For those of you who missed it, last week was the week after Shark Week, which means one thing- Pull Tab Awareness Week!  If you have no idea what that is, then head over there now.  Seriously, click that link above (it opens a new page), read it then come back here to finish reading this.

Now if you read that you may say "You only posted that because you entered the contest".  Well, I later disqualified myself and the contest is over, so I didn't win, no big deal.

I posted it because of the amount of items I get from Listia that should heed this advice.  Whenever I open a package with a terribly shipped card I feel like Mr. Jackson.

Dang, such a harsh feeling for my first gif.
Anyways, Gavin provides a great public service with Pull Tab Awareness Week, and it should be taken seriously and promoted as much as possible.

Moving on, I also wanted to mention The Raz Blog is currently running a cool contest, and the disclaimer here is that I am gaining an extra entry by pimping the contest.  The contest is for some female Japanese wrestling cards.  If that sounds cool or are intrigued by that, then click the link (again, I can wait, the link opens in a new window).  The contest ends later this week, so act now!

I also picked a bad week for comic book week because I had no tie ins to Comic Con (besides not knowing when it began), and no tie in to Ant Man (which I like Paul Rudd, but have ZERO interest in seeing that).  So next time I'll find a way to tie it into something.

Another reason I picked a bad week was because it was the biggest weeks in terms of mail days that I've had in a while.  The good news is that I have many new posts to make this week and probably the rest of the month.  I won a couple contests on twitter, and some gracious bloggers sent some cards my way (one of which was also part of a contest win).  Throw in some Listia wins, and all I can say is that I've been busy.

So busy in fact that I didn't have a lot of time to read a lot of blogs this week.  I'm sorry about that, and will be catching up again soon.  Though I did make a dent in organizing my cards some, and things are looking better.  I had a computer issue so that gave me some time to work on it.  I even managed to fix the computer problem too, so things are really looking up.

Since I don't want to make a long intro then bury some card scans here, I think I will have a new post later today.  It might be real late tonight/early AM because of my sleep pattern, but I'll have a new post later.

I guess that will wrap it up for now, thanks for reading and have a great day.

"Crap, I forgot to show baseball cards." (I paraphrased that, enjoy!)
