This has been a project I have spent a year working out the details on how I wanted to approach it as I knew something had to be done to fix the mess I created back in the 90's til today. I don't plan on changing how I sort everything and where it all goes, however, I wanted to put them in binders better. For example, my baseball binders, which have not begun yet, I plan on taking the rookies out and putting them all by team. Something I stopped doing in 2005 or so and not sure why I ever did. This will be a dreaded project as I have bought so much and traded for so much baseball since, but I gotta stick with it. I may also pull out all of the "junk wax" era rookies and place those in a box instead to save binder space. But, the approach may change by the time I get to the baseball mess as my approach with today's did as well.
Today's post is all about football inserts and rookie insert binders I attacked first.
I am currently pulling out star players from the insert binders to place in my by-player boxes. This is something I haven't done in some time and I expect quite the pile when I am done. Along the way, I am also condensing them down making sure that every page is being used and not some empty slots. Hopefully by doing this it will free up some pages I can use for other parts of this project.
As for the rookie insert binders, I am just taking a gander at what I have while pulling a few key cards here and there.
Another thing I am pulling out as well is my new hobby project which I have already mentioned a few days ago, The Sets Of My Childhood. Which involves a lot of late 90's goodness.Some of that late 90's goodness can be seen here. I will have plenty of set chase updates and needs when I get through doing football.
Another fun thing about going back through these binders, some I haven't seen in years, is finding some hidden cards I didn't know about. This straggler wasn't supposed to be in the insert binders. This is Giants binder all the way.
This is just the beginning of this possible year long project. I can only fit in doing this when I am not busy or need a blog post to do instead. Which has been kinda restricted with my new blogging format of blogging daily instead of once-a-week. But, it seems the new approach is working.
