You're with me, leather.

Bonus points to those of you who know that reference in the post title.

This past Thursday, I officially moved into my new house (new to me, that is...the house...not so new). No more renting. This is a purchase, and a mighty big one at that. I'm sure many of you can relate, but now my mind weighs things such as "$20 blaster from Target? Or decent push broom from Ace Hardware for $20?"

I did splurge ever so sightly last week as a housewarming present to myself. I hadn't seen this card, and when it popped up with an affordable BIN, I decided to jump on it.

We've all seen the autographs fade off of the Sweet Spot Signature cards, but this signature looks like it's sticking to the fake leather really well nine years later. I wasn't aware there were signatures on materials other than baseballs, so I was pretty surprised when I came across it.

I won't get myself many more housewarming gifts that aren't actually for the house, but after a long move and many years of renting, it felt good to get myself a little reward.


  1. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself

  2. I wonder if it's too late to get myself a housewarming gift... :-)

  3. Note to self, buy a house as soon as possible and refrain from renting...

  4. Congratulations on the purchase of your new home. I remember one of the reasons I was out of the hobby for so many years was saving up for my townhouse... and then buying all the other necessities that go into the purchase of a new home like furniture, a fridge, washer and dryer, bed set, etc.
