My Packer Season Ticket Update Is Here [2013 Edition]

A few weeks ago I received my yearly postcard from the Green Bay Packers letting me know where I sit on the season ticket waiting list.  Here is the progress I've made since 2007:

2007: 69,193

2011:  I can’t seem to find a scan of the postcard but...
2012: 65,890 [I moved up 1,008 places over 2 years]


I've been eagerly waiting this year's postcard because it is the first to include the huge addition the Packers made to Lambeau Field. So I was expecting a big jump in my position and certainly the biggest jump I've ever seen in my time on the list.

















And I wasn't disappointed.  I'm all the way up to 60,604 which is an improvement of 5,286 spots which is 5X more that I've ever moved up before.  I'm still a long way from getting that magic letter with my chance to get my tickets.  But now that Lambeau Field holds 80,750  fans it is nice to now I'm about 25% of the way there.

The Pitch Gif


I'm not sure if that this has been posted elsewhere on other card blogs but about a month ago on the subreddit r/woahdude the user TheJoePilato posted this great gif of some 20+ odd junk wax cards showing a pitcher going through the motion of throwing a pitch. I can stare at this for an embarrassing long amount of time.

A Day of the Doctor Special Unbubbling: Opening A Doctor Who Tardis

Today is a pretty big day for Doctor Who fans and so in honor of that I'm dusting off some videos I recorded over the summer of me ripping some Doctor Who related packs and products.  The first one is a great big Tardis I found on clearance at Half Price Books.

Lawrence Public Library Banned Book Trading Cards Are Back!


I'm happy to spread the word that the Lawrence Public Library is again selling a set of trading cards commemorating banned books including The Cather in the Rye and Leaves of Grass. The 2013 will run you $7.00 with $2.95 shipping and there are some 2012 sets still available if you haven't gotten that one yet. You can find my post with full card scans from the 2012 set to give you a better idea of how great these cards are.
