What Do You Want For Christmas?

Christmas truly is a great time of year. After all the hustle and bustle of the shopping malls and excess traffic of course. As a collector and avid eBay shopper, I've had to cut back so I can spend any discretionary income on friends and family. That's actually fine by me. It's awesome sniping out a cool card on eBay or busting open a pack, but it's even better to see the smile on someone else's face as they open a gift. A gift that you have your fingers crossed they like no less. So because of a redirection of hobby funds, I'm going to need Santa to come through for me to get me my card fix.

That brings me to the always popular, "What Do You Want For Christmas?" blog question. It sure would be nice to get a pack or two to open on Christmas from Santa, but all I really want is to spend some time with family. Getting cool stuff is always fun, but without getting too religious, Christmas is about family and faith for me.

So what do you want for Christmas?

P.S. Santa, I'm serious about the cards. I want a pack or two in the stocking. Not even playing around!!!


  1. A little elf informed me that I will be getting two of the hobby boxes on my wishlist. I got married this year, so for me, spending time with my wife is all I want.

  2. I want cards. I know better than to expect hobby boxes or vintage off the bay, so I'll settle for a few retail packs and be happy.

  3. nice!!! I here you guys on the hobby boxes.

  4. Here are the top 5 cards I want Santa to bring me:

    #1 - 1982 TCMA Hawaii Islander Team Set (w/Gwynn minor league card)
    #2 - 1977 Topps Steve Largent rookie
    #3 - 1985 Topps Tiffany Kirby Puckett rookie
    #4 - 07/08 The Cup Devin Setoguchi rookie
    #5 - 96/97 Topps Chrome Kobe Bryant rookie

    Happy holidays Charles!
