Fave Five

I'm going to do everything I can to make the most of this "Summer of Very Few New Cardboard Purchases".

One way I'm going to do this is by focusing more on what cards I already have rather than my usual stewing about what cards I still need.

"And how will this affect the blog?" you most certainly are asking yourself.  Well, I"m glad you asked.

The main way is a new feature where I look through my collection and find my "Fave Five" cards of a certain topic, such as my Fave Five Hochevar cards or my Fave Five Autographed cards or my Fave Five Manupatch cards or my Fave Five Cards of Guys Born in 1981.  You get the idea.

I've already come up with a couple dozen topics for my Fave Five posts, but I'd really enjoy taking requests.  I started a page dedicated to my Fave Five at the top of my blog where I will list/link to these posts. 

I don't have the largest collection in the world, but I think it will be very good for me to spend time sorting and appreciating the cards I already have in my collection.  And it will help keep my blog alive during this lull in purchasing.

This sounds like a fun idea. How about your favorite five non-hit insert cards, or on-field cards that don't feature action, or cards with players wearing facial hair, or top five cards from teams you hate, or cheap base cards, or mullets. Or top 5 cards that aren't listed in a Beckett magazine. Hm. I can really see a whole long series here!

Love this idea Eric, it's always fun to go back and see what cool stuff you have!
