This morning I had an epiphany.

I love baseball cards but I am officially over it.

I returned to the Hobby in mid-2007 and began writing at rate never seen before. It’s been less than ten months at the helm of Wax Heaven and in that time I am within reach of 800 blogs written. Think about that for a second. That’s insane.

The truth is that while I am a collector at heart, my passion lies in writing and photography. Someday I’d like to have my articles and photography published in Sports Illustrated and ESPN Magazine. I have many goals to accomplish and just not enough time in the day.

The writing is on the wall. I came in to the Sports Cards Blogosphere with two goals in mind and accomplished both of them so now is the perfect time to move on. I may never be able to build the kind of following that Wax Heaven provided but that is a risk worth taking. A coward dies a thousand deaths, the brave die but once.

On July 1st, 2008 will cease to operate. Occasionally there will be video or two added but nothing like today. I implore every single reader who has ever enjoyed Wax Heaven to give the new format an opportunity to win you over. Getting a baseball card collector to read a site about baseball shouldn’t be that difficult but you never know…

Stay tuned for more updates. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail. The minute the new site is ready will be re-directed to it. The name will be announced in the next couple of days.

Respectfully Yours,

Mario Alejandro
