Slight Signs of Life in Trollville...

Greetings Trollites! I am not ready to declare myself back, but damn do I miss the blog-o-sphere!!!

It has been far too long! I won't bore y'all with all my personal woes, but I will say that I got a new job and things are looking up and I hopefully will be blogging away as the Rays make a run at the postseason... Sadly, they are losing 5-1 to the Red Sox right now...

I did reinstate my Post Office Box today - you can find me once again, and for the next year at: Collective Troll, PO Box 1063, Tallevast, FL 34270... The box had been locked since July and I did free up some pretty awesome packages. One of which came from the always awesome Rod Richards of the Padrographs Blog.

I need to get back to blogging just so I could thank Rod 6 billion times! It was perhaps the most amazing collection of things I have ever recieved in the mail AND it was all a surprise!!! I will try and get some photos up soon... There were cards, of course, but also autographs, memorabilia, photos, baseballs and a felt pennant! WOW and THanK You Rod!

While I was there I dropped off some packages... I am guessing all these folks thought I had dropped off the face of the earth and that they would never get any return from me... Well, I hope they are cool with "better late than never"... Packages went out to the following zip codes: 85233, 60586, 08551, 47246, 11426, 66049, 98022, 21117 and 43028. Yer patience is much appreciated... Hope ya like the cards!

If I still owe you a return on a trade you sent, PLEASE shoot me an email with your address and collecting needs. Like I said, I am not back yet, but I am working on it... I have missed this community ALOT and I have missed the wonderful people in it. Of course I still LOVE the game of baseball and I LOVE collecting cards, trading and writing about it...
Go Rays! troll out.


  1. Welcome back, the blogosphere needs its troll!

  2. Good to hear from you! Congrats on the new job!

  3. I was just thinking last night that I need to email you and the missus.
    Of course, I didn't.....
    Good to hear you're okay.

  4. Thought you had left us.

    Welcome, I won't be so hasty this time.

  5. Welcome back... or not back... or whatever the case may be...

    Congrats on the new employment, I know switching J O B's can be scary, but not always. Good luck with that. I know my last switch a roo was for the WAYYYY better.

    Glad to hear from you. Tell the Missus we said hellooo!!

  6. Super happy to hear from you. I'm glad things are going well.

  7. Good to see you back, Troll. Let's have life calm down so you don't disappear again.

  8. Welcome back - and thanks for the cards!

  9. Today donated our 1,000,000th card to kids and I just wanted to take a second to say THANK YOU for supporting us and helping us reach this amazing goal!

    By the end of December, we should have an inventory of 200,000 cards or more, so we are already a fourth of the way to the next 1,000,000!

    I sincerely mean it when I say I am appreciative of everyone who has helped us in any way possible!
