Default Card Collector True Confessions

if I don't have a pile of newly acquired raw baseball cards at my bedside table every night to smell, take off my checklist, and put in fresh Card Savers, I tend to drink more.

My name is Scott and I'm a card collector.

When I see the red flag up on my mailbox I start to feel high. Then when I grad that bubble mailer I'm in 7th heaven. When I go a few days without it I start to itch and check the mail box regularly. I've been known to ask the Mail carrier if she has anymore of those bubble mailers.

It took me six months to come clean to my wife about my new hobby. Thankfully we are still married, and she thinks that Goudeys are "pretty."

My wife doesn't ask what I spend on cards and I don't ask her how much she spent on Rodan & Fields (makeup-very expensive makeup). Probably a wash. I love my wife!

USPS trucks give me instant erections.

Also, when I die, rather than a coffin, I want the guys over at PWCC to package me. They are masterful.

I was a bit disappointed the companies logo looked nothing like this



Yes, there are several reasons I'm not in the corporate logo business.

I live in Japan and collect cards here. The main set I collect each year is put out by a company called Calbee, which distributes its cards with bags of potato chips (you get 2 cards per bag, the sets usually have about 250-300 cards).

This is what my kitchen cupboards look like during the baseball season:

Better than bubble gum, I guess.

Well, better than Topps bubble gum at least.

The downside though is that the chips come on one flavor (plain) and you accumulate way more than you can ever eat very very quickly. Plus the chips themselves constitute about 80% of the value of the thing you are buying, whereas bubble gum is more or less a freebie attached to the cards (or at last was back in the day). And gum doesn't take up anywhere near as much space!
