I still pick up some blasters here and there and if a product is coming out and it's got a good Twins checklist, I'll probably start buying boxes. But for right now, I'm really liking what I can get for singles. There's some good deals to be had if you've got the patience.
I'm right there with you, Jared! My retail purchasing is down. I've limited myself as to the amount of retail blasters I'm opening. My funds are going to be very limited the next several months so if I spend $20 on a blaster or $20 on a nice PC auto, I think my money is better spent on single card pickups.
Funny how that works, isn't it? I think we all love the rush of opening packs and pulling that one card you've been looking for. It's the thrill of the hunt and it's a big reason I got into this hobby. But at the same time, while you don't get that same rush, there's something satisfying about just getting what you want without having to wade through all the garbage on the way.

It's always exciting & fun 'winning' ... But it's pretty satisfying getting what you really want, especially if you get it at a decent price.
Yikes! Haven't posted any of my new adds for a while ... probably because there haven't been too many PC adds. Spent too much on Chrome Update and not enough on singles. However, I was able to add the following. Some nice new pieces through Ebay, trades, a couple of pulls and some generous members of this community!

For sure. Give my org a look and see what you can use. I've been looking for an orange Arcia and I'm always open to adding more Gibsons, too.
Great Stuff, Jared! A great way to start the New Year.
I've been busy moving my office and haven't had much time for anything.
Great Trout update Throwbacks! Some retail luck is still with you!

Streaky shows his face once in a great while. I'm gonna need him next year as I assume Max will be showing up in some 2016 product.

Streaky be with me! At least until Doc gets things back up and running.
Open offer sent. The Gibson is the Camo refractor #3/15
Here's the latest additions. Well, the highlights at least.

Gibson /15, Arcia /25, Killebrew /80, Gonsalves base, Gonsalves /99, Jay base and Arcia /10
