Almost two year ago, I started this humble little blog with the goal of sharing and discussing Phillies baseball cards from my collection, sharing my custom-made baseball cards using baseball card designs of yore, and finding a creative way to goof off at night once the kids were in bed. We now live in an era in which it is very satisfying to follow and root for the Phillies. I am proud and honored to be possibly one of the top 1,000 baseball card/Phillies/custom card blogs on this entire fine planet we share.
As most of you may be aware, I have made the switch to an iMac recently, rendering my PC obsolete and putting me at square one in terms of learning and adapting to a new graphic design software package.
At the advice of a few senior advisers, and after careful consideration, I have decided to try my hand at Apple's Pixelmator. The software package has received its share of favorable reviews, and I like its slogan of, "Image editing for the rest of us." As soon as my schedule permits, I'm going to sign up for one of the hip and cool "Personal Projects" sessions at my local Apple store, in the hopes of producing something that closely approximates the baseball cards presented here. [Pause for polite golf applause.]

A few of you have realized by now that the 2010 Chachi set stands incomplete at 58 cards. The masses (all three of you) have cried, "Where's our Brian Bocock card? Where are the 2010 Leaders cards?", and finally, "When will get a highlight card celebrating Roy Halladay's Cy Young award?"

I thank you for your readership, your insightful comments and your patience. 2011 is going to be an exciting year, and the 2011 Chachi set will appear at some point in our bright futures. God bless you, God bless baseball cards and God bless Chachi.
