Default Annoying card things

It has been a long week and I need to get these things off my chest. Here goes...

Reading a PSA article where cards are referred to as "pasteboards".

Finishing a set only to find out, upon auditing, I'm still one card away from completion.

Receiving cards in regular #10 envelopes.

My wife thinking that buying a new $500 dress is the "fair-is-fair" equivalent to me buying an 1888 Goodwin Champions Bob Caruthers last month. Two words: resale value.

My wife taking the resale value argument to the next level and only wants Louis Vuitton items now.

I feel better.
Scott

Two years ago I went from Dooney to Vuitton for her, I know the feeling 3 purses and wallets later. They are approaching my Jos Hall Cabinet value....

Wives and cards..... My son had his bar mitzvah last fall, and of course my wife needed a dress equal to the occasion (and the shoes to go with the dress). Bottom line, her beautiful red dress and fancy shoes could have gotten me 75% of the hammer price on the red Cobb blank back in heritage last night! Of course, she thinks cards are dumb and doesn't understand how I can spend so much on them, but to her, her dress and shoes were well worth it and, indeed, obligatory (even though my cards can be resold and her dress will likely never be worn again). Alas, I'd rather have the wife than the cards - happy wife, happy life!

Well, let's see: I know a wife will throw out your old cards without much drama, but, to get rid of an old girlfriend...that's in a different league.

Cards know when to shut up.

Wives can sometimes cook a good meal.

You can let your friends handle your cards.

Wives can give good back rubs.

Cards are ruined if they get wet.

Wives do not like to be grouped together by age, let alone condition.

Cards are happy just to be put away someplace safe.

Wives may insist on 'salmon' colors for that 'someplace safe'.

You can donate your cards and get tax credit for them.

Wives don't like it when you attempt to donate them.

Cards can be handed down to your children and grandchildren, none of whom will appreciate them as much as you do.

...Hey...finally, that's true with wives as well.

I talked to that writer last year for an SMR article, and I begged him to stop using that term and he told me he would, since someone else told him the same thing. I guess he won't listen.

I was reading an article on the 1952 Berk Ross set and I think it was a few years old. Thank you for trying to stop the madness. I think I hate "pasteboard" as much as the word "moist" now.

I feel your pain. Received an envelope this morning with the end slit open and my cards stolen. I contacted the member (from another website) and he informed me that this isn't the first time he has had cards stolen that he mailed out. I can't blame him for someone else's actions, but it is frustrating.

He is a stand up guy though and wants to make things right and has offered to reimburse me.

Thought I would chime in and point out that there is nothing worse than "moist pasteboard". If I hear that phrase again I will self-incriminate my own self with a selfie stick.

Brian (I'm sorry, it must be raining, which would likely explain the fluid sloshing around in my brain)
