New Year – No Retail

Posted: January 11, 2009 in Baseball Cards


The goal this year was to cut back on retail spending. Here in the middle of Indiana, there aren’t many avenues for buying hobby boxes or packs, just the other day I arrived at the shop that I usually go to, and I find nothing but an empty store, another hobby shop out of business. So last year I found my self buying alot of boxes here and there. Go to Wal-Mart grab a box of 08 Topps, hit the Meijer a couple more boxes of 08 Bowman. I think you get the point, a few auto’s here and there but not to much to speak of. So most of my spending this year will be single cards on the bay or more spending on higher end hobby boxes. WOW what a great idea, well 11 days into the new year and I fell off the wagon. I picked up my first blaster box of the year – 2008 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects. Some nice looking cards and a “big hit” if that’s what you want to call it. A Brad Salmon Signs of the Future card. Man, I need to stick to some hobby boxes like this one on the far left.
