It's been a little while since I have posted anything....and was done on purpose.
I decided last month that after The Card Show at the end of May I would take a little summer hiatus.
But I wanted to wait for the announcement until I could share this unlikely little collection.
Never did I think what would happen.....would happen.
I talked to another Linden collector asking if he was chasing any of them. He said no. That got me even a little more motivated.
But still....the likelihood...nah!
I even sent the seller a message asking if he was firm on the price.
Well, it was fun while it lasted. I could now relax as the chase was over.
Seeing one of the letters locally at a show was completely unexpected. Especially when it represented the fifth out of six letters.
I didn't mince words and cut right to the chase. I made a very fair offer and the seller took it.
That meant just one more card.
To me, there are still limits. I wasn't going to pay the asking price of the final card online. But a fellow Linden collector who knew where I was sitting with this project (once again) helped me out.
He was placing an order with the store that had the card and made a deal for less than what the card was listed for.
The final piece arrived in the mail today and the unthinkable is complete.
And with that, I'm now back on my break.
I decided that I'm taking the summer off. Completely. As of right now.
No hobby boards.
That doesn't mean that I'm going away or have become tired with the hobby. I still very much love collecting cards. I just need to focus my time during the summer on other things.
Work is extremely busy and I'd like to try and get a round or two of golf in (if it ever stops raining). Plus, I have a massive list of books I want to read (not that I'm going to finish many over the summer months).
I think the time away will be good. Recharge the battery so to speak. And my wallet will like me a little more too.
So thanks for reading and I hope you'll check out some new content in a couple months.
