The madness of December typically means there's not a lot of cardboarding for this intrepid blogger. Which is certainly A-OK. The Card Calendar of releases doesn't hold much interest for me at this time of year either...I'm more or less just counting the days & weeks until pitchers & catchers report (6 weeks!!!).
That said, I did bust open about 6 packs of chrome goodness this month. One of my pals surprised me with three packs of Bowman chrome for Christmas...pretty awesome because, I can't think of one occasion where we've ever discussed baseball cards. There may have been a tip-off from one of Santa's Elves.
I'm reading the Jeter book "The Captain" right now, which I got as a Christmas gift last year. I am...woefully slow with the reading list.
I also snapped up a few packs of Topps Chrome at the beginning of Ho Ho season. Here are a few things from those packs.
Hope everyone's had a great holiday season & if you're going out tonight & plan on drinking - please, whatever you do, do not get behind a wheel.
