  1. It sure is going strong. I'm still surprised by the amount of people out there selling, buying and trading. And the values are up! I'm also realizing how much there is to learn and watch. And then tomorrow, it could change. I'm enjoying following it. And my personal collection has grown from zero to about 100 cards in no time! I've made some rookie mistakes, too. Early on I just started buying a bunch of cards without truly researching them, or truly thinking ahead of what I want my collection to looks like. @Backdoor Slider has been an AMAZING help. It's fun to discuss and learn. Patience is now my key as a new collector. At the same time, if you know a card you 100% want, you have to be ready to pounce. I've missed out on some awesome cards/deals. There will be more, though. I think a lot of people are bored without sports and fantasy. As well as getting some stimulus cash. So the market has been up. Might see some better prices later this year and/or in the off season (if we have a season, fingers crossed).
  2. AZ has a LOT of hospital/icu/ventilator capacity and is keeping the stay home order in place until May 15 (at least).
  3. The next of the Purge movie series... The Purge: Outbreak "This is a stick up! Give me all your toilet paper!" - "oh no, please don't shoot!! I have kids!!" "it's not a gun, just need to get your temp reading"

  10. A few years ago I drafted Maikel Franco in a keeper for $28.
  11. Look, we all want to get back to normality quickly, and no offense, but it’s that kind of attitude that attributes to more super sick and dead people. And no I’m not saying it’s the apocalypse and we need to panic and hoard. But I hope you guys are following the safe guidelines and just venting here A lot of people (young and old) have underlying or serious health issues. All it takes is a healthy person showing no symptoms to touch the wrong door knob and the wrong person could catch it and hopefully survive. We have to do our best to limit the spread now and for at least another month. Acceptance. 🙏
  12. If the flu was more contagious, had a longer incubation period and higher death rate, I’m guessing it would be more hyped up.
