Over on the FreedomCardBoard.com message boards, yours truly won a box of 2010 Topps. Now, being stationed in Germany just makes the win even sweeter, since I have nowhere to go to get hobby boxes (there is a little retail stuff at the AAFES (kind of a military WalMart), but there is a poor selection), so this will be my first taste of in person 2010 Topps.
Not sure of the SP's or the odds of pulling a game used or autograph card, but if anyone needs anything from Series I (besides Astros and Million Card Giveaway), feel free to let me know.
In other news, I head out into the field next weekend for a three week training exercise preparing our unit for our upcoming deployment. Now, we don't deploy until sometime in mid-June, but every unit needs to make sure they are prepared and game planned (think of it as our Spring Training). Sadly enough, I will not have internet out there, so there will be no new posts in that time frame (unless I can knock out a few to leave in the queue and just have sitting on the back burner). Not like anyone would really notice, since I have been updating the blog less regularly this month then I did last month.
Which bring me to another point: being able to come up with different content every day, week and month. I have been finding it hard to sit down and crank out a post or three, with little on my mind. The solution? Three or four posts a week...but all centered on different cross sections of baseball. I plan on having one post a week on baseball cards, another on fantasy baseball and one on the game itself, be it the current season or seasons past. Plus, if I find it interesting enough, I plan on throwing in additional posts/content weekly on just random things going on inside my head or in my own personal life.
Anyways, here's hoping I get the box in by Friday, so I can have a juicy post full of scans of the latest of Topps flagship product.
