Well, now the truth comes out. I love collecting just like everyone else, but here's the REAL reasons I eased up on my buying:
1. I'm close to completing the Goodwin Relic set, so I don't need to massively buy up anymore cards. Half of the remaining cards are easily obtainable; the other half, not so much, so I'll just have to be patient with that.
2. I've been saving my money because I am truly only going to try to collect 2010's Topps Chicle - but ya'll knew this already as I had said that about a 1000 times now on my blog.
and....the 3rd reason why I've eased up ever so slightly -and the reason for the title of my blog...
I'm trying to win the ultimate auction -this: (and I found out last night, that I won)
No, I did NOT win a house for $9,000. But it IS going to cost me that much just for the down payment; I have a special loan term that I was offered that allows me to put down considerably less than the average person. So, I need to fork over well over $9K, not including closing costs, to buy this beautiful house. I got a call from my realtor yesterday stating it was a locked in deal and that my bid was accepted by the sellers.
I know, some of you all are thinking - "Dude, do you know how many cases of Ultimate I could buy with that??!!" Yes, I do know and yes, I considered spending it elsewhere instead of a house. Then I said, "nahhhhhh" lol
Ok, more later! I'm going to Target today! So I HAVE to buy a few things! I'm a card-crack addict ya know!
