Sometimes, work requires me to travel and stay overnight. Usually, I get to stay overnight in towns that I actually enjoy. This time, I am not so lucky. I'm in Wichita Falls, Texas, and I am bored to death. I have no cards to open. I have nothing new to share.
Except one thing.
This morning, Topps was kind enough to send me an e-mail to let me know that 2014 Turkey Red Baseball was available online for $20 a box. I've seen some cards from the last Turkey Red run (2012, I believe). I like the design, so I jumped.
Then, when looking over the checklist, I noticed that some boxes are already listed on eBay for $50-$60. Who the hell would actually pay that when they can just go to the Topps website and get a box for $20? Oh well, not my concern I suppose.
Also in news for the day, I was approached by a company who wanted to advertise their website on my blog (a single post, no more). They offered $40 for a one-time mention. I haven't given them an answer, I've been trying to determine if it would be detrimental to the blog to do so. Would you stop reading if you felt like I was trying to peddle a company's product via a paid endorsement?
I thank you in advance for your input. (And I apologize for the random, rambling nature of this post)
