After a two month break, I have actually been working on some card stuff the past few days. I reached a standstill in my modeling due to two factors- running out of supplies and my local hobby shop was closed for vacation, and it got too hot to do anything else, 92 degrees as I type this...too hot for my health to handle. Too hot for the paint also, it specifically says 90 is it's upper limit.
I finally finished cropping the scans of the blaster of 2021 Donruss I got for Easter....which I made back in April! But that wasn't all. I also labeled the scans I had made in full, cropped and edited, back in either late March or early April, I no longer remember. And it wasn't all NBA, NASCAR or NHL either, there was some Star Wars, even some baseball.
While cropping images is still causing me a significant amount of pain from my arm injury (which I rehurt badly the other night...usually rehurt it every night but that one was bad) I did discover that typing the cards into my Excel chart where I keep track of what I scan hardly hurt at all. I am not going to say it didn't, but I'm used to living in pain, I can handle this level of hurt. So I decided I was going to do some typing...remember a while back I said I would be doing the typing when I finished scanning everything? Change of plans.
Hopefully my arm will go back to normal and I can go back to scanning when it's too hot, too wet or too cold to work on models, but I don't know when that will be...IF that will be. For now I'll type, there's probably too many to expect to finish this year. But I literally have nothing better I can do right now.
However, typing requires unplugging my scanner, and before I did that, I had some stuff that needed scans, mostly oversized stuff that wouldn't fit into one of the white boxes I use for everything, or, in this case, standard sized cards where the issue number is only printed on the package.
Also in the bag were 3 retail and 2 hobby packs of 2007 High Gear. The last two years of High Gear is a huge gap in my collection...other than a couple of numbered parallels I picked up on COMC over the years these 5 packs make up my entire collection of 2007...21 cards out of a 90 card set, and some of those 21 are inserts. I have about the same number from 2008.
