June Project Progress Report

June 29, 2011

I will start by saying that today is a disappointing day.  For the first time since I started writing this monthly Project Progress Report series of articles I have absolutely no progress to report.

It was not for lack of trying either.

While I have admittedly cut back on my spending drastically over the past in the last few months, I did in fact buy some cards on eBay in June.  First on my birthday as a small present to myself, and again last week after coming across a card for my 06-07 Upper Deck Artifacts Bronze Parallel /25 project.

The only problem is, they have still not arrived because of the suspension of postal services here in Canada that just ended on Monday, so even though they are bought and paid for, they will not make an appearance in this article since I do not yet have them in hand.

The cards that I bought on my birthday are a bit of a disappointment to have not received since the full-blown suspension of service did not occur until the 12th of June.

Unfortunately, I had been noticing delays in the pace with which mail was being delivered well before any public announcement of action being taken by the union or Canada Post, so it was not a total shock that they did not arrive before things shut down entirely.

As I have requested my customers do for me, I will give the sellers the benefit of the doubt on those cards not getting to me before the lockout.  I just hope that the cards do finally arrive once things get back to normal.

So with that being the case, today is simply an update on the cards I am continually searching for.  Have a look below and let me know if you, or any fellow collectors you know of, might have something from my list.

Leave a comment below, e-mail me at bb_bros@hotmail.com, or connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.

Until Sunday, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
