My holiday mailing list
I'd like to start things off today by wishing all of my fellow bloggers a very happy Thanksgiving.
May your plates be as plentiful as Ed Kranepool's on this great holiday.
I am truly thankful for all the great people I've met during my blogging career thus far. I still maintain that starting this blog is one of the greatest life decisions I've ever made.
Now, admittedly, I haven't exactly lived up to the "giving" part of this happy holiday as far as the blogosphere goes. I've once again fallen massively behind in mailing out trade packages and the like.
So, what I'd like to do today is hand out my own little holiday list of people that should be expecting mailers from me soon. Some of these are "just because" packages, and others are return goodies for trade packages I've received lately. (If you think your name should be on this list, please contact me.)
I'd like to take care of everyone by Christmas, at the latest. Hopefully my budget will cooperate.
I've included the teams (and a few other things) that each of the people below collect. So, if you happen to have anything of anything you think these people might enjoy, go ahead and contact them. This is a season for giving, after all.
And, as always, if you're new to the blogosphere and/or would like to drum up a trade, please feel free to shoot me an email.
So, in no particular order, here's what I'm calling my "holiday mailing list".
Mark of "This Way to the Clubhouse..." (Mets)
Marcus of "All the Way to the Backstop..." (Padres)
Duff of "Bleedin' Brown and Gold" (Padres)
John of "Johnny's Trading Spot" (Braves)
Ethan of "Playing With My Cards" (Dodgers)
Michael of "Nomo's Sushi Platter" (Dodgers)
Greg of "Night Owl Cards" (Dodgers)
Jim of "Garvey Cey Russell Lopes" (Dodgers)
Weston of "Fantastic Catch" (Cardinals)
Mark of "Chronicles of Fuji" (A's/Japanese Players)
William of "Foul Bunt" (Orioles)
Douglas of "Sportscards from the Dollar Store" (Blue Jays/Mets)
Robert of "$30 A Week Habit" (Blue Jays)
Jeff of "2 by 3 Heroes" (White Sox)
Tom of "Waiting 'til Next Year" (Cubs)
Ana of "Hobby Cards Europe" (Yankees/Reds/D'Backs/Astros)
Mark of "Battlin' Bucs" (Pirates)
T.J. of "The Junior Junkie" (Ken Griffey Jr.)
Matt of "Red Cardboard" (Reds)
In fact, I encourage you to pick a few names off this list (or any other blogger, for that matter) at random and mail them some cards this holiday season.
After all, few gifts are better than cardboard. If any.
