Who cares? Yeah, that's exactly my point. I have been back into buying cards since last summer or so and they have been accumulating on my desk since. I have a stack of McDonagh cards and various other Rangers in a stack, and on my floor an empty binder that was purchased who knows when to put them in. Collecting is work as much as it is fun, unless of course you don't care about wasting money buying doubles and triples of things because you have no record of what you have.
A couple of weeks ago Sooz and I went to see Dave at the Baseball Card Store in Midland Park, NJ, and I bought a bag of cards. They are still in the bag. I haven't even looked at them. I feel like this makes me a "bad" collector or that I waste my money since I clearly don't get the same enjoyment out of the work part.
Surely I can't be the only one who does this all the time. I wish I had an elf to help me. Even if he was an angry elf.
P.S. I am bored at work and this is what I am thinking about. Stay tuned, I may have more random thoughts soon...
