Yesterday I mentioned that I had a TON of cards laying around that needed to be logged in and put away. However, I don't think anyone could truly understand how bad it has become. There are cards on my desk from a show I went to last September.
Now, it's not that I don't try and put them away. I make an attempt here and there to get stuff logged in an put away but I just haven't reached the bottom of this pile. I know, I suck. The worst part of this "cardboard problem" is that I have way too many cards that I don't even want of all teams.
Maybe a year or so ago I did a cleaning where I asked people which team they wanted and they paid me only for shipping and got all the cards. That helped me clean up a little bit. I guess the question/questions that are on my mind today are the following:
Do you find yourself behind on putting cards for your personal collection away? What do you do with all the inserts, parallels, and cards of the teams and guys you don't collect?
I almost feel like we need to organize a mass trade of some sort. Like each blog would get to trade for their team. Like everyone sends me their Yankees (ONLY- Cano, Jeter, Martin, ARod) and I would send you your team. And we could get a bunch of blogs to participate and help everyone eliminate unwanted cards.
All the cards that I don't collect end up in piles on my desk until they go into boxes. Once they are in boxes, I never look at them again unless someone is looking for something of that player or that set. Sometimes I wish I were the type of person who could just throw base cards out, but I just can't do it.
