Oops! Missed my 5-year blog anniversary...

Oops. I missed my blog’s five year anniversary last week. That’s a bummer. Or it’s not. It’s not that big of a deal.

Regardless, I’ve been at this little old blog Yankees card blog for five years, since February 10th, 2011. I’m glad I’m still going. I took one prolonged pause, but that’s really it. Otherwise, I’ve been posting fairly regularly, which is a nice accomplishment given two little ones running around. Mind you, I had this blog before we were pregnant with my son, and now he’s got a 22-month old sister. It’s weird to think that my blog is older than my kids.

As you may have noticed, I don’t post earth-shattering stuff or overly thoughtful content. Maybe once in a while. Otherwise, it’s my form of cardboard show-and-tell. That’s ok. It’s how I do it. My wife doesn’t want to see my cards, so I show them to you. Your call if you click the link or not.

I don’t have any set plans or big blog goals for the next year or two or five. I don’t have any plans to shut it down or introduce anything brand new. I’m just going to stick to what I do, because it’s been working out for me just fine. I’ve made a lot of collecting friends, and my collection has grown to the point where it’s probably too big now.

Anyhow, thanks for regularly or periodically checking in. I do appreciate it. Equally, thanks for keeping me top of mind when you pull your unwanted Yankees cards. It means the most to me when someone sets something aside knowing I’ll like it. That’s something that I find to be really meaningful, and just plain cool.

So from everyone over here at The Lost Collector (aka just me): THANK YOU!

p.s. Napkin Doon, come back. 

p.p.s. Here's a card, because it's a card blog.


  1. Congrats on 5 years TLC. You started blogging right around the time I first entered this hobby. How time flies...

  2. Congrats on your 5th year in the Blogiverse. One thing I try to do to remember things like that, when I think about it and actualy at on it, is to set up a scheduled post a few months in advance. OK maybe just a few weeks. That is IF I remember it at all.

    1. I just out the date in my Outlook calendar as a recurring yearly reminder. Let's see if it works for Year 6...

  3. Happy 5th. I started blogging when my daughter was playing with Bratz dolls and Webkinz (anybody remember those?). She's graduating from high school this year.

  4. Goin' Jake? That saying was actually a thing? Huh.

    Congrats on the 5 years!

  5. AJ, Congrats on the big 5.0! Keep doing it your way.

    p.s. NO: I loved playing on WebKinz world, still have my youngest daughter's cards and stuffed animals too!

  6. Congrats on hitting the five year mark!

  7. It's an enjoyable blog you've got here. Congrats on 5 years!

  8. Congrats on the Anniversary. Keep doing what you want, the way you want.

  9. Congrats on the five years! you've done a great job with this blog! Come back and do what?
