Bonne année !

I've been away much too long, so what better a day to make a come back than the 1st of January ?

That being said, I don't have any cards to show, as my scanner hasn't been working now for 3 months (and 3 months is a long time without being able to scan cards), and I don't like taking pics of cards with my phone. In the past 3 months, I've received some great trade packages from Brian, Matt, Kenny (yup, I've been zippy zapped !), some triple break stuff , some awesome 90s inserts from COMC and some supertraders packages  (thanks guys !). Sorry I haven't given proper props. I also got a bunch of packs and boxes for Xmas (nothing too exciting though, but it was fun as always).

I'm still very much collecting, even though I don't spend nearly as much now on cards as I used to. Shipping has gotten out of hand and I've pretty much opened most of the 90s products I've wanted to get my hands on. It's still mostly about nostalgia for me ! There have also been major changes in my life lately (I'm not living by myself anymore, basically, and looking for a new place to live, with a bigger room for my cards), so that hasn't helped my card-sorting.

But all in all, things are good. The baseball season was great and I'm hoping the results will still follow next year for the Blue Jays. Topps flagship will be out in exactly a month, so we'll see if I dish out for a box (but the design doesn't inspire me that much).

This year is an election year in France, so we'll see if we go full right wing like you guys in the US did...scary times.

Anyway, I've got a Lego Wall-e to build and some cards to sort ! Happy new year to all my blogging friends and I hope to trade way more this year !
