You'd think that as a mostly baseball card collector, the summer/baseball season would be an ideal time for me to be collecting. But, actually, it's just the opposite. While the summer does provide new products almost every week, the summer also brings countless activities and events that conflict with collecting.
Most importantly for me, there's golf. Other then my wife and my dog, there is nothing I love more than golf. And that includes card collecting. Collecting fills the void left when I can no longer golf in the winter and fall. So, now that summer vacation is here and I have the golf course to myself, I'm not as passionately collecting cards. I'm starting to notice that this summer, most of my spare change is being spent on golf balls, golf clubs, and golf tournaments. Doesn't leave much left over for card purchases.
With that said, I did pinch a few pennies from the golf fund and have managed to pick up a card here and there.
Today I received my 58th unique 1910 Murad T51 college series card. It's a nice little card of the Michigan Agricultural College and, were I a better blogger, I'd have figure out a better way to riff off the agriculture/summer connection. But, I'm not a writer, I'm a picture poster.
It's a great card from a set that I'm getting ever closer to hitting the 50% complete mark, as I'm now at 39% of the way done.
