Even for a side blog, Returned to Sender has been woefully neglected recently. It's not for a lack of interest in the cards posted here. And it certainly isn't for a lack of returns filling up my mailbox. In fact, the last month or two have yielded a steady stream of TTM returns and some great dimebox finds at recent shows.
The problem, more simply, is one of time and space. All my TTM returns get sent to my parent's address, since I worry that one of those mysterious thousand day returns would get lost in the address shuffle I've been doing far too frequently over the last few years. On top of that, wedding planning, work, and research have eaten up much of my time.
But I'm hoping to start posting more regularly here, and the current batch of TTM returns certainly give me enough reason.
Growing up during the 90's was a great time to be a sports fan. I don't have much memory of Bo Jackson or Barry Bonds as a Pirate, but everything after that made for a glorious sports childhood. There are some great looking cards from those years to boot.
The downside is that far fewer players from the 90's/00's seem to sign than previous decades, particularly among the bigger names. But I was thrilled to see decent success rates for two of my favorite 90's players.
Ah, to have your entire frame of reference for something be toys, video games, and Sportscenter.
