The Lost Collector Jr. arrives!


Over the past week and a half, I've essentially been non-existent in the blogging world. I've done some posts, but those were all written well in advance. I haven't regularly read any of my favorite blogs. I haven't had the time to post about some new cards, including my Secret Santa haul and my first Yankees 1/1 card. And here is why: on December 28, I welcomed my first child to the world! Baby Joey was born at 12:20 am ET in New York City.

So far it's been great, just busy as many of you parents out there know. I hope to be back to regular posting shortly, but for now Joey has my undivided attention. By the way, as his first card, I gave him a Derek Jeter 1993 Topps RC. Hopefully he'll be as interested in collecting one day as I am.

  4. Congrats AJ! I've got three small boys of my own. The two older ones (almost 4 and 2) love helping me bust open packs, and they almost never immediately rip them in two :)

  9. Congrats! I'm in the same boat as Spankee, as my wife would surely trade my collection for him as well! Heck, she'd probably trade me in for him too!

  10. Congrats! Me and the missus have our first on the way in July - so I'll probably have a similar outage myself at that point.
