Cool Stuff #2 - Vinsanity

A SHORT ONE TODAY BECAUSE I HAVE NO TIME BUT WANTED TO SHARE COME COOL STUFF

2018-19 PANINI CONTENDERS VINCE CARTER


MY FIRST VINCE CARTER CARD IN A HAWKS UNI AND I LOVE IT. GAZE UPON THAT GIMUNGOUS PAC-MAN LOGO EATING UP VINCE'S RIGHT LEG. IT'S REALLY REAL NOW. VINCE CARTER IS AN OFFICIAL HAWKS LEGEND JUST LIKE HALL OF FAMER SIDNEY MONCRIEF. NORMALLY WHEN HAWKS GET AGING STARS THEY ARE OLD AND BUSTED LIKE ELTON BRAND AND DWIGHT HOWARD BUT THIS TIME WE GOT VINCE FFREAKINN CARTER. IT WAS SUPER FUN WATCHING HIM THROWING UP THREES WITH MORE RECKLESS ABANDON THAN EVEN TRAE YOUNG AND DUNKING AND JUST BEING VINCE. I HOPE HE COMES BACK FOR ONE MORE YEAR

AH - THERE'S VINCE'S LEG. I'M PRETTY CLUELESS ABOUT PANINI PRODUCTS OTHER THAN MOST OF THEM ARE RIPOFFS OF OLD DONRUSS, PACIFIC OR IN THIS CASE PLAYOFF BRANDS. CONTENDERS ALWAYS HAS THAT TICKET STUB MOTIF THAT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT EATS UP TOO MUCH OF THE CARD REAL ESTATE BUT IN THIS CASE I KINDA DIG IT? PROBABLY HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY HOPELESS LOGO FETISH. NO STATS BUT WHO NEEDS STATS WHEN THERE IS BASKETBALL-REFERENCE DOT COM. I WOULDN'T MIND BUILDING A SET OF THIS STUFF. WELL, MAYBE OPENING SOME PACKS. DOLLAR STORE PACKS.

I WON'T MIND WHEN ALL THE DIME BOX CARDS FROM THIS SET END UP IN A FIVE DOLLAR JUNK BOX AT MY LOCAL SHOP IS ALLS I'M SAYING

IT'S NICE TO BE HAVING FUN WITH THIS AGAIN, MORE POSTS IMMINENT!

THINGS I LEARNED ABOUT 2018 TOPPS THANKS TO A PACKAGE FROM GROGG

I BOUGHT ONE PACK OF 2018 TOPPS. IT WAS A WAL-MART RACK PACK AND THE REASON I BOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE I SAW AN ENDER INCIARTE CARD ON THE BACK

I DIDN'T LIKE IT

LIKE, A LOT

THE ENDER HAD A ROLLER MARK ON IT AS WELL

DIDN'T BUY ANOTHER FLAGSHIP PACK ALL YEAR. STILL HAVEN'T BOUGHT ANY THIS YEAR. HAVE MOSTLY NOT PICKED UP ANY TOPPS AT ALL OTHER THAN A FEW PLAYERS I LIKE OUT OF DIME BOXES LIKE JASON HEYWARD AND ADRIAN BELTRE. THEN @GROGG ON TWITTER (YOU SHOULD FOLLOW HIM IF YOU LIKE BASEBALL) SENT ME A GINORMOUS PACKAGE FULL OF GOODIES AND INSIDE THE PACKAGE WAS WHAT APPEARED TO BE MOST OF A BOX OF 2018 TOPPS SERIES 1

GROGG HAS A TRADITION OF RIPPING OPEN A BOX OF SERIES 1 TOPPS SO HE CAN FEEL ALIVE KNOWING BASEBALL IS NEAR. GROGG ALSO HAS A MASSIVE VINYL RECORD COLLECTION AND A SMALL APARTMENT AND WHEN NEW WAX COMES IN, SOMETHING GOTTA GO. THE CARDS NOW HAVE A NEW HOME AND I NOW AM UNWITTINGLY BACK IN THE TOPPS FLAGSHIP COLLECTING GAME



I..... HAD FUN SORTING ALL THESE CARDS. I ALSO LEARNED A LOT ABOUT 2018 TOPPS. HERE IS WHAT I LEARNED.


OK I'VE COMPLAINED A LOT ABOUT THE DESIGN EVEN THOUGH IT'S BETTER THAN 2016 AND 2017 (blecch). THE ESPN GRAPHICS THAT GOT SNAPPED BY THANOS IS OK AND THE WATERSLIDE MOTIF IS, UH, DIFFERENT I GUESS. FULL BLEED BORDERS ARE BORING. THE TINY BIT OF FOIL IN THE LOGO IS USELESS EXCEPT TO DIFFERENTIATE THE SET FROM OPENING DAY AND EVEN THEN THESE THINGS LOOK A LOT LIKE OPENING DAY. BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS DESIGN THAT REALLY BUGGED THE CRAP OUT OF ME AND I COULD NEVER PUT MY FINGER ON IT.

THEN I LOOKED THROUGH MOST OF SERIES ONE AND IT FINALLY HIT ME

ALL THE TEAM LOGOS HAVE THIS BULLSHIT JJ ABRAMS LENS FLARE ON THEM
UGH I HATE IT
STILL BETTER THAN THE LONDON FOG AND STEEL GIRDER CRAP FROM '16 AND '17 THO


THE BACKS ARE FINE. SWOOPY THING, BIO, HASHTAG, FLAVOR TEXT, STATS. ALL I CARE ABOUT IS "CAN I READ THE FUCKING CARD NUMBER"

I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT YES, I CAN READ THE FUCKING CARD NUMBER, ALTHOUGH BETTER ON THE BRIGHT COLORS THAN ON YELLOWS AND GRAY. IT WOULD BE UTTERLY FABULOUS IF THEY WOULD DITCH THE UNNECESSARY SERIES 1 LABEL AND MADE THE NUMBER BIGGER BUT THESE THINGS ARE DESIGNED BY INCONSIDERATE WHIPPERSNAPPERS WHO CAN STILL SEE OUT OF THEIR EYES



THE FALSE FOIL FUTURE STARS BANNER IS KINDA QUAINT. I DIG IT. THANKFULLY THERE ARE NO BULLSHIT JJ ABRAMS LENS FLARES ON THE ROOKIE CUP



TAKING THE ESPN THANOS WATERSLIDE BULLSHIT JJ ABRAMS LENS FLARE DESIGN AND JUST SHOVING IT OVER TO THE RIGHT ON HORIZONTAL CARDS LOOKS LIKE CRAP. IT SEEMS LAZY AND IT LOOKS LIKE CRAP. I DON'T LIKE IT. BOOOO, TOPPS , BOOOO. DESIGN BETTER CARDS

LIKE YOU DID IN 2019

UM, SO THANKS FOR THAT. SOMEONE'S FINALLY LISTENING


NOT A BIG COMPLAINT, BUT I PREFER LEAGUE LEADER CARDS WITH MULTIPLE PLAYERS ON THEM. AL/NL LEADER OR TOP 3 IN THE LEAGUE. I CAN SEE PEOPLE LIKING THIS BETTER TOO. IT'S PERSONAL PREFERENCE REALLY


THERE WAS ONE DOUBLE IN THE PILE I RECEIVED, BUT! IS NOT A DOULBE AT ALL!! IS A SUPER RARE SHORT PRINT VARIATION!!! ONE OF ABOUT A HUNDRED OF THEM IN THE SERIES. I DON'T KNOW IF GROGG NOTICED THIS THE FIRST TIME AROUND BECAUSE I SURE DIDN'T NOTICE UNTIL I HAD THE WHOLE BOX SORTED


I FRICKIN LOVE THIS CARD. I'M GLAD I HAVE TWO OF THEM


SOOOOO

THIS IS A GOLD PARALLEL. THIS... IS HOW TOPPS DECIDED TO GET AROUND THE WHOLE 'LACK OF BORDER' DILEMMA. THIS LOOKS GOOFY. I DON'T LIKE. IT'S IN MY TOPPS GOLD PARALLEL FRANKENSET BINDER BUT I AIN'T HAPPY ABOUT IT. YES I HAVE A TOPPS GOLD PARALLEL FRANKENSET, DOESN'T EVERYONE?


THIS IS A RAINBOW FOIL PARALLEL. I THOUGHT IT WOULDN'T BE EVIDENT IN THE SCAN BUT IT KINDA IS? THESE ARE DUMB AND STOOPID AND USELESS UNLESS YOU GET A COOL PLAYER. ALEX BREGMAN COUNTS AS A COOL PLAYER


SO HERE'S THE BIG ONE. 1983 TOPPS IS ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE SETS EVER. THE PREVIOUS RETRO SETS LOOKED PRETTY GOOD  SO I HAD HIGH HOPES. WHICH WERE MOSTLY DASHED BY THE CARD STOCK. THE FRONTS LOOK PRETTY GOOD THOUGH! ALTHOUGH THEY SCREWED UP THE YELLOW ON THE PIRATES CARDS AGAIN


THE BACKS LOOK... OK. CARD NUMBER IS TOO SMALL. THE FAKE PRINTED CARDBOARD ON GLOSSY STOCK IS JUST WEIRD. THE REST IS... OK. I WOULDN'T LEAVE THESE CARDS BEHIND IN A QUARTER BOX IS WHAT I'M SAYIN. 50 CENT BOX, MAYBE


THESE ARE DUMB
TOPPS Y U FUCK UP BORDERS
NO BORDERS ON BASE SO YA GOTTA RUIN '83
BLUE LOOKS NICE ON A BRAVES CARD THO
BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT


B-E-S-U-R-E-T-O-D-R-I-N-K-Y-O-U-R-O-V-A-L-T-I-N-E

I COUNT THIS AS AN AARON JUDGE ROOKIE CARD. IT'S GOT THE LOGO! I DON'T MAKE THE RULES


THIS IS A HUGE INSERT SET OF SEEMINGLY RANDOM STUFF INCLUDING HOLIDAYS, LEGENDS AND ROOKIES THAT DOESN'T MAKE A LOT OF SENSE BUT I KINDA LIKE IT BECAUSE THERE ARE NO BULLSHIT JJ ABRAMS LENS FLARES ON ANY OF THE LOGOS. GOT A TIM RAINES WITH A GORGEOUS EXPOS LOGO IN MY DIME BOX POST FOLDER I'M DYING TO SHOW OFF


AN UNSCRATCHED HOME RUN CHALLENGE CARD. I DON'T KNOW HOW THESE CARDS WORK AND IT'S EXPIRED ANYWAY. LOOKS LIKE A BOWMAN DESIGN THAT GOT ABANDONED HALFWAY THROUGH


THIS DESIGN IS BAD. NOT TOPPS FIRE BAD, BUT CLOSE


THIS DESIGN'S JUST KINDA MEH. FIELDING AWARD, YAAAAY. I APPARENTLY ALSO NEED TO CLEAN MY SCANNER

OF COURSE THE ONLY TWO INSERT SETS I LIKE ARE THE 100 CARD MONSTROSITIES


 A CRUMMY COMMERCIAL. I HAVE EXACTLY ZERO SERIES TWO BUT I'M SURE I CAN BUILD MOST OF A SET OUT OF DIME BOXES, NICKEL BOXES, PENNY BOXES AND PILES OF BULK JUNK. THIS IS ALSO A CLINT FRAZIER ROOKIE CARD AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED. LISTEN THE LOGO DOES NOT LIE

THERE'S WAY MORE WHERE THIS CAME FROM, I GOT AT LEAST TWO MORE POSTS OUT OF THIS GOODIE BOX. THANKS FOR SPRING CLEANING GROGG!

Dime Box Junk - $1.70

THE HAWKS LOST THE LAST GAME OF THEIR SEASON LAST NIGHT ON A BUZZER BEATING 3-POINT FOUL AND YES IT WAS THE MOST APPROPRIATE WAY FOR THAT SEASON TO END. LET'S LOOK AT SOME DIME BOX BASKETBALL CARD PICKUPS IN HONOR OF THEIR 50TH SEASON IN ATLANTA WITH NO CHAMPIONSHIPS OR FINALS APPEARANCES

1981-82 TOPPS JACK SIKMA & SUPER ACTION


VINTAGE TOPPS BASKETBALL IN A DIME BOX IS AN INSTANT BUY - NOT EVEN GOING TO CHECK MY WANTLISTS - GIMME ALL OF IT.


SIKMA'S A HALL OF FAME CENTER FROM ILLINOIS-WESLEYAN, PLAYED WITH THE SONICS AND THE BUCKS SO ENJOYED AN ALL-GREEN NBA CAREER. APPARENTLY THE HALL OF FAME ANNOUNCEMENT WAS 5 DAYS AGO AND I HAD NO CLUE. I WOULDA BEEN CROWING ABOUT ATLANTA HAWKS LEGEND SIDNEY MONCRIEF GOING INTO THE HALL ON TWITTER OTHERWISE


SO THE BRIEF PERIOD OF TOPPS BASKETBALL CARDS FROM THE LATE 60S TO THE EARLY 80S WAS FILLED WITH LUDICROUS GIMMICKS AND THIS SET IS NO DIFFERENT. THE BASE SET WAS 66 CARDS IN SIZE AND THEN TACKED ON ANOTHER 44 CARD SET FOR THE EAST, MIDWEST AND WEST MARKETS. THE 'HIGH NUMBERS' CONTAINED ADDITIONAL PLAYERS AND THESE ACTION CARDS FROM PLAYERS IN THE MAIN SET. THIS SOUNDS CONFUSING AS HELL BUT IT'S REALLY ONLY 198 CARDS FOR THE SET AND IT'S NICE TO SEE SOME OF THOSE BENCH PLAYERS GET SOME CARDS WHO WOULDN'T HAVE OTHERWISE

1994-95 UPPER DECK SPECIAL EDITION DOC RIVERS & JEFF HORNACEK GOLD


UPPER DECK BASKETBALL SETS FROM 1993 TO ABOUT 1996 ARE CONFUSING AS HELL. THERE'S REGULAR SETS, SPECIAL EDITION SETS, SP SETS, SPECIAL EDITION INSERTS, IT'S ALL A BIG MESS. BUT THESE ARE FOILY AND SHINY AND THAT STUFF TURNS BRAINS TO MUSH WHEN DIGGING THRU DIME BOXES SO I HAVE THESE NOW


DOC RIVERS WAS MY FAVORITE HAWKS PLAYER NOT BORN IN FRANCE* WHEN I WAS A KID SO ANY SHINY CARDS WITH HIS MUG ON IT IS COMING HOME WITH ME. THE HORNACEK, WELL, GOLD CARDS ARE HARD TO PULL OK

I SHOULD PUT TOGETHER A '90S BASKETBALL PARALLEL FRANKENSET, I'VE GOT SO MUCH OF THIS STUFF AND NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM

1997-98 TOPPS ALLEN IVERSON BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME PARALLEL


I COMPLAIN ABOUT PARALLELS 24-7-365 AND THEN I PICK THEM UP AT CARD SHOWS LIKE I'M SNARFING DOWN BAR PEANUTS. WELL, YEAH. THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE IN PULLING USELESS PARALLELS OUT OF A PACK OF EXPENSIVE CARDS AND SNAGGING A HALL OF FAMER PARALLEL FROM A TIME PERIOD WHERE THERE WAS ONLY ONE - MAYBE TWO - PARALLEL SETS IN A PRODUCT


BESIDES THIS IS A SECOND-YEAR CARD OF ALLEN FRIGGIN IVERSON, THE MAN WHO SINGLEHANDEDLY DRAGGED A TEAM TO THE FINALS. SOME PARALLELS ARE GOOD

2008-09 TOPPS TREASURY COURTNEY LEE SHINY RC SERIAL NUMBERED REFRACTOR THING


TOPPS TREASURY WAS A ONE-SHOT PRODUCT FROM TOPPS WHERE THE GIMMICK WAS A RIP CARD PER BOX AND SOME RIP CARDS HAD ACTUAL MONEY IN THEM. IMAGINE SPENDING $70 ON A BOX AND OPENING A RIP CARD AND YOU GET A $50 BACK. THE CARDS WERE SORTA SILLY LOOKING AS THEY HIT HARD ON THE CURRENCY THEME BUT THERE WERE BIRD AND MAGIC CARDS ALL OVER THE PLACE SO IT WAS MOSTLY A FUN PACK TO RIP


SO I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A PARALLEL OR IF THE BASE ROOKIES WERE ALL LIKE THIS OR WHAT BUT COURTNEY PLAYED A FEW YEARS IN THE LEAGUE SO YOU'D THINK IT'D BE WORTH MORE THAN A DIME. WHERE MY WESTERN KENTUCKY SUPERCOLLECTORS AT

2001-02 FLEER SHOEBOX WALLY SZCZERBIAK


MILDLY OBSESSED WITH THIS SET BECAUSE FLEER DID NOT PRODUCE A FLAGSHIP OR FLEER TRADITION BASKETBALL SET THAT YEAR FOR SOME REASON. FLEER IS BASKETBALL CARDS AS FAR AS MY NOSTALGIA-ADDLED BRAIN IS CONCERNED SO THIS DISTURBS ME GREATLY. THIS SHOEBOX COLLECTION SET IS THE CLOSEST THING TO A TRADITIONAL FLEER SET FROM THAT YEAR AND HAS A REALLY NICE MINIMALIST DESIGN GOING FOR IT SO I'VE DUBBED IT THE OFFICIAL FLEER SET OF 01-02. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I ONLY BOUGHT ONE (1) PACK OF IT BACK IN THE DAY AND NOW I DESPERATELY WANT THE SET BUT CANNOT FIND


I HAVE NO MEMORIES OF SZCZERBIAK OTHER THAN 'WALLY WORLD' AND A BILLION TIMBERWOLVES ROOKIE CARDS.

WITH THE SEASON OVER I HAVE DECIDED TO ROOT FOR THE BUCKS SINCE THEY STOLE GIANNIS AND OUR COACH FROM THE HAWKS SO IT'S BASICALLY AN ATLANTA TITLE IF THEY WIN. I NEED SOMETHING TO DISTRACT ME WHILE I WAIT ANXIOUSLY FOR THE DRAFT LOTTERY. WE'RE TOTALLY GETTING ZION, I BELIEVE THIS. I BELIEVE IT

NEXT TIME: SOMETHING OTHER THAN DIME BOX CARDS MAYBE

* ANYONE MENTIONING BORIS DIAW IS BANNED FOR LIFE. THERE IS NO WAY TO BAN PEOPLE IN BLOGGER BUT I'LL REMEMBER DAMMIT

Dime Box Junk - WRASSLIN' EDITION - $1.00

IT'S WRASSLEMANIA DAY WOOOOOOOO

I DON'T REALLY WATCH WRESTLING BUT LITERALLY EVERYONE I FOLLOW ON TWITTER DOES SO I NOW HAVE OPINIONS ON THE MATTER. THESE CARDS ARE MOSTLY FROM WHAT WILL NOW BE CALLED THE MOSSI DIME BOX. ENJOY THE SCRIPTED GRAPPLING PERFORMANCE ENTERTAINMENT CARDS

UM... I MEAN ANIME WRESTLING IS REAL

1989 CLASSIC WWF ANDRE THE GIANT


I DON'T NEED TO TALK ABOUT ANDRE. EVERYONE LOVES ANDRE. LET'S TALK ABOUT THE CARD
NEVER EVER SAW THIS SET BEFORE A COUPLE YEARS AGO. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE UNIQUE LOGOS FOR EACH WRASSLER. THE PICTURE QUALITY IS PRETTY GOOD TOO
AM IN LOVE WITH THE MINIMALIST BACKS TOO. BIG BOLD HIGH-CONTRAST CARD NUMBER. ANDRE'S NAME IS TRADEMARKED BECAUSE OF COURSE IT IS. NO LIKES, ONLY HATES. I LOVE THAT ANDRE HATES DAMIEN THE PYTHON. THIS CARD IS WONDERFUL


1987 TOPPS WRESTLEMANIA III GEORGE "THE ANIMAL" STEELE STICKER


TOR JOHNSON!!! GEORGE SHOULDA STARRED IN A REMAKE OF THE BEAST FROM YUCCA FLATS, IT WOULDA BEEN A HOOT. I BOUGHT A BOX OF WRESTLEMANIA III CARDS BACK IN THE '80S BECAUSE IT WAS CHEAP SO I ALREADY HAVE THIS CARD. YEAH I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A CHEAP BASTARD, IT WAS A FUN RIP FOR 7 1980S DOLLARS. I DIDN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT WRESTLING AT THE TIME OTHER THAN THE AFOREMENTIONED SNAKE AND ANDRE AND A FEW OTHER THINGS BUT I DID REMEMBER LAUGHING AT GEORGE CHEWING ON THE TURNBUCKLES. HE'S NOW IN MY SMALL CIRCLE OF FAVE WRESTLERS, AS IS EVERYONE IN THIS POST


1991 CHAMPIONSHIP MARKETING WCW "NATURE BOY" RICK FLAIR


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




1990 i have no idea what this thing is MACHO KING RANDY SAVAGE

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SET THIS IS FROM AND WAS UNAWARE MACHO MAN WAS ROYALTY AT SOME POINT IN HIS CAREER. THIS IS KINDA SPORTSFLIXY BUT IS ALSO SMALLER THAN A NORMAL CARD. IT IS VERY NEAT THO AND NEATO IS AN EXCELLENT QUALITY FOR A DIME BOX CARD. MR. POFFO HAS RETROACTIVELY BECOME MY FAVORITE WRASSLIN' SUPERSTAR SO FINDING A LENTICULAR MOVEY ODDBALL CARD OF HIS IS A NICE SURPRISE


2016 TOPPS WWE BATISTA


I HAVE NEVER SEEN DAVE BAUTISTA DO ANYTHING WRESTLING RELATED EVER BUT I FUCKIN' LOVE SPECTRE AND HIS CHARACTER IN THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MOVIES MAKES ME LAUGH MOST OUT OF THE CREW AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING MORE MOVIES WHERE HE PLAYS BIG GRUMPY HEART OF GOLD CHARACTER TYPES. I FOUND THIS CARD AT THE LAST MINUTE AND PANICKED AND FORGOT TO ROTATE THE SCAN BUT WHO CARES. THE 2016 TOPPS DESIGN LOOKS BETTER ON WRESTLING CARDS BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY USE PYROTECHNICS AND SMOKE MACHINES OCCASIONALLY.

THAT FUCKIN' FIGHT SCENE IN THE TRAIN THOUGH!!! SPECTRE IS AWESOME, SCREW THE BOND SNOBS



ENJOY READING THIS AFTER THE BIG WRASSLIN SHOW BECAUSE I WAS LAZY THIS MORNING AND DIDN'T WRITE!

Dime Box Junk - Fifty Cents

IT ME AGAIN

IF YOU READ THE LAST POST - AND YOU PROBABLY DID CAUSE IT'S THE SAME 6 GUYS EVERY TIME - YOU'LL REMEMBER I COMPLAINED ABOUT ENDLESS BLOG POSTS TAKING FOREVER TO WRITE. IF YOU FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER - AND YOU SHOULDN'T BECAUSE TWITTER IS DEPRESSING NOW - YOU'LL KNOW I GO ON AND ON ABOUT DIGGING THROUGH DIME BOXES FOR CHEAP THRILLS

AND THEM * KABLAM * I GOT A WONDERFUL STUPID IDEA. INSTEAD OF SPAMMING TWITTER WITH DIME BOX PICKUPS OR TRYING TO WRITE A BLOG POST WITH 100 SCANS IN IT, I'LL THROW ALL THE DIME BOX SCANS IN A FOLDER AND RANDOMLY PIC A FEW TO POST. NOW I CAN SHOW OFF ALL MY WORTHLESS CRAP WHILE SAVING TIME. GONNA TITLE THE POSTS WITH A RUNNING TOTAL OF THE AMOUNT I'VE SPEND SO ONE DAY I'LL LOOK UP AND REALIZE I COULDA BOUGHT A NEW LAPTOP WITH THE AMOUNT OF MONEY I'VE BLOWN. LET'S SHOW OFF SOME CARDS!!!!

1993 YOO-HOO WILLIE MCCOVEY


WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME YOO-HOO HAD TRADING CARDS IN THE EARLY 90S??? THERE WERE TWO YEARS OF THESE THINGS! I COULDA BEEN SOOOOOO FAT. FOR SOME REASON THESE THINGS DON'T LOOK AWFUL WITH THE YELLOW BORDERS UNLIKE 1991 FLEER. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE THE YELLOW BORDER IS SURROUNDING WILLIE MCCOVEY INSTEAD OF JOEL SKINNER. BACKS ARE PRETTY NICE TOO WITH THE RED & BLUE STRIPEY STATS. NO CARD NUMBER THOUGH, WHICH IS ODD. I WOULDA COMPLAINED LOUDLY IN 1993 WHILE CHUGGING MY EIGHTH YOO-HOO OF THE DAY.


2018 TOPPS BABE RUTH POSTSEASON PREEMINENCE

THAT DIME BOX I MENTIONED IN THE MOSSI POST HAD A CRAPLOAD OF 2018 TOPPS INSERTS IN IT. I THINK THIS ONE WAS FROM SERIES TWO MAYBE? I ONLY BOUGHT ONE PACK LAST YEAR SO I'VE GOT NO CLUE. THIS CARD IS UGLY BUT BABE RUTH IS A SEXY BEAST. RUTH CARDS DO NOT BELONG IN DIME BOXES, EXCEPT FOR THAT OLD BLACK & WHITE CONLIN COLLECTION SET THAT SEEMS TO POP UP EVERYWHERE




2018 DONRUSS ANDREW MCCUTCHEN DIAMOND KINGS


GREAT GOOGELY MOOGELY 2018 DONRUSS IS UGLY. THE FRONT DESIGN IS UHHHHH INTERESTING? BUT IT SURE AIN'T A DIAMOND KING. WHERE'S DICK PEREZ WHEN YOU NEED HIM. THE BACK HOWEVER IS THE TRUE LAZY GARBAGE. BOOOO PANINI. BOOOOOOOOO! ANDREW MCCUTCHEN IS AWESOME THO AND I WISH THE BRAVES HAD SIGNED HIM. YEAH I'M ROASTING MY PRECIOUS DIME CARDS WHAT I PICKED OUT MYSELF BY HAND. HANG ON, THAT'S ABOUT TO CHANGE



1987 RALSTON PURINA DON SUTTON


LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUS GODDAMN CARD
CROSSED BATS WITH A GIGANTIC STAR FEATURING JERSEY NUMBER
STRIKING RED BORDER
CYAN NAME PLATE WITH TEAM AND POSITION
MAJESTIC PORTRAIT OF DON WITH HIS SILVER CURLS
ANGELS CAP AIRBRUSHED WITH VANTABLACK SO NO LIGHT CAN ESCAPE THIS CARD
YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YEAR THIS CARD IS FROM
A BACK CHOCK FULLA STATS
ALL THIS AND THE CARD IS IN ALMOST NEARLY GEM-MINT 10 CONDITION
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT DIME BOXES ARE FOR GOD BLESS AMERICA


2018 DONRUSS JOEY VOTTO ELITE DOMINATORS


LETS FINISH UP WITH THE SHINIES. THAT BOX WITH ALL THE TOPPS INSERTS HAD A TON OF DONRUSS INSERTS TOO. NOW ALL WORTH A DIME! THIS SUCKER IS VERY SHINY IDEED AND WILL SATISFY THE MOST DISCERNING MAGPIE. JOEY VOTTO IS ONE OF THOSE FORGOTTEN SUPERSTARS BECAUSE HE PLAYS WITH THE REDS WHO HAVE BEEN VERY BAD FOR A WHILE BUT NOT REALLY DUE TO HIM. LIFE IS UNFAIR. AND LOOK! NUMBERS! ON THE CARD! EVERYONE LOVES CARDS WITH NUMBERS ON THEM. AND THE BACK LOOKS DECENT TOO! HEY DONRUSS! DO THIS ON THE BACK OF YOUR BASE CARDS TOO YOU LAZY FARTKNOCKERS



LOOK AT THAT! A QUICK AND EASY BLOG POST THAT WAS WRITTEN UP IN A LUNCH BREAK! YELL AT ME IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU HATE IT! AND LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE! SHOW ME HOW TO CREATE A PATREON SO YOU CAN THROW MONEY AT ME! THIS IS SOCIAL MEDIA! BE SOCIABLE ALREADY

I ALREADY HAVE THE NEXT POST ALL PLANNED OUT! HA! HA! YOU'RE STUCK WITH ME FOR A WHILE!
