    On to a different part of Pence-sylvania

    I couldn't have asked for a better going away party then Monday night at the Hunter Pence signing. With 700 of some of my favorite faces and some new ones that I could only hope turn into lifetime customers, it was a great way to end my summer at Carl's Cards. I can now make the three hour journey back to Penn State knowing that the staff and customers of Carl's Cards had a great summer meeting some of sports greatest players.

    Hunter Pence was a class act all in himself. But I have to be honest, the highlight of my night was meeting Marshall Harris from Comcast Sportsnet (partly because I dream to take his job one day). With all that aside the signing was a huge success and with all the people we processed it went off without a hitch. Obviously my bias is coming through right now but what can I say, it's my job, it's my life.

    Being home for three months and having the opportunity to become more and more familiar with the customers is something I love! After the PayPal orders are filld, the phone calls are taken, eBay has been checked, and the Twitter and Facebook have been updated, it's all been fun. Its been my life since I was five years old.

    I'll miss seeing everyone's excitement build up around the signings and answering everyone's questions as best to my ability, but I'll be back, you can't get rid of me that quickly.

    Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance to prove myself at the store as someone who actually knows what they're talking about and don't always have to ask for Carl. For the rest of you that still prefer his advice, give it time.
