    When I was 9 or 10, I broke apart three 1980 Mint sets (D, P and even S!) to buy cards. Maybe the only time anyone ever used a 1980 S Susan B Anthony at a card shop.
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    You see a license plate with the 3 letters "TDF" and think topps donruss fleer

    You see a t shirt with FCB logo and don't realize it's soccer at first.

    Every time you see the word Panini in a menu, you think of cards.

    When you go on a cruise and check to see if the gift shop has cards because you want to do a break. So you prepare yourself ahead because you know they won't have and pack a couple blaster boxes!

    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    Bad: When you hit refresh on an ebay card search less than 5 minutes after the last time you hit refresh on the same search.

    Worse: When you see that a card on your wantlist has appeared within the last 5 minutes, rush to buy it, and then tell yourself that this justifies the obsessive behavior described above.

    Worst: When you have repeated this behavior often enough that you truly believe this is healthy and normal.
    Collecting Roberto Alomar cards. Got rare ones? PM me and let's make a deal!
    Some key cards still on the wantlist:
    1992 Star Promo - 1993 Pinnacle Cooperstown Promo
    1995 Score Rules Jumbo - 1996 Aficionado First Pitch Preview
    1996 Select Mirror Blue & Gold - 1997 Fleer Ultra Platinum Medallion
    1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Platinum Gold - 1997 Topps Stars All-Stars
    1997 Score Platinum and Premier Club Teams - 1998 Bowman's Best Atomic

    There's a joke about John Ryno in here somewhere...give me some time, it'll hit me.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Laughing hard as hell. Or when your wife realizes that she could have had a second property in her native country of Colombia. I just keep telling her one day when the kids are grown. One day. LOL.

    when you get angry a card arrives sandwiched between two toploaders when there are readily available toploaders for thicker cards.

    I don't know why so many ebay sellers are being lazy lately - I've gotten 3 packages in the last 2 weeks with 108pt cards smashed between two normal single-card toploaders. If you charge $3.25 or $3.50 shipping, don't be a tight ass by not using a 20 cent 108pt toploader.
