All of the posts that have been posting are backlogged ones that have been desperately needing to see the light of day. So instead of posting my few small and far in-between mail days, I have been tweeting those out and letting these backlogged posts take up the blog.
Well, except for today. I decided to pop in with something fresh and update on what I have been doing in my spare time instead of putting up new posts.
I have been sorting. Every minute I have had a chance, I have been sorting, re-organizing and tearing it down and apart. This is by far the most work I have and will be putting forth into my collection since I started in the 90's.
First off, I have been stripping apart my once insert binders. Originally I was just tossing all the inserts into binders and that was it. But, I got so sick of looking for stuff I thought I had and since it wasn't by team it would take forever to look for. Well no more!
HERE. Don't think I could have done this project without it.
BCW Penny Sleeves (which I found much more sturdy than it's rival counterpart), and BCW Trading Card dividers on hand so I can keep this project moving forward. I already had Shoe Boxes on hand.
Shoe Box Houses to keep it nice and neat. I have been labeling the outside of the boxes as I go.
This is just some of the sorting I am tackling.
I still have the following to do,
- Sort hockey rookies by team. Last sport that needs it done
- Move star players by sport from boxes into binders for easier access
- Finally combine my football rookie inserts and my football rookies. Football rookie inserts must be pulled out of binder, sort by team to be put away
- Sort hits by team
- Locate some non sport sets I have been wanting to binder
I will try to keep you guys updated on my progress when I can. In the meantime, at least until November, enjoy the backlogged posts.
Another note before I close, I have been keeping my want lists and set needs updated on here. Just in case you are looking to trade :)
