CLEANING UP ONLINE DIME BOX CARD PURCHASES 4/4

 FINALLY THE LAST OF THESE POSTS. IT'S GETTING HARDER TO FIND GEMS ON THAT SITE SO MIGHT JUST BE WANTLIST SCROUNGING FROM NOW ON

2014 PRIZM WORLD CUP JACK WILSHIRE


ABSOLUTE ARSENAL LEGEND

WHAT DO WE THINK OF TOTTENHAM? SHIT!

WHAT DO WE THINK OF SHIT? TOTTENHAM!

THANK YOU

LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE I BOUGHT A LOT OF THIS SET BUT PRICES ON BOXES GOT REAL HIGH REAL QUICK. THANKFULLY I JUST WANTED THE TRASH FILLER CARDS INSTEAD OF SUPER MOJO HITZZZZ. I KNOCKED OFF A BIG CHUNK WITH THIS ORDER BUT STILL HAVE A FEW TO GO. JUST LIKE HUNDREDS OF OTHER SETS I INSIST I'M COLLECTING AND NOT HOARDING

2017 ALLEN & GINTER WORLD'S FAIR STATUS OF LIBERTY


2017 WAS THE BEGINNING OF MY 'I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BE RIPPING A BUNCH OF GINTER PACKS' DECLINE INTO MISERY BUT THANKS TO JUNK BOXES AND DIME CARDS I'M STILL ABLE TO SCROUNGE A FEW TOGETHER. I PICKED UP A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WORLD'S FAIR INSERT SET AND HAD TO SHOW OFF DECAPITATED LIBERTY AS IT IS EASILY THE MOST INTERESTING


COLLOSSAL NOGGIN IS SUPER DISRESPECTFUL AS IS THE SCARE QUOTES AREOUND LADY LIBERTY. SHE HELPED THE GHOSTBUSTERS DESTROY PINK SLIME DAMMIT SHE DESERVES BETTER THAN THAT 

2013 PANINI FEARLESS BRIAN MCCANN


THING ABOUT PANINI PRISM INSERTS IS THEY ALL LOOK PRETTY COOL AND YOU CAN FIND THEM PRETTY EASILY BUT I WILL NEVER TRY TO COMPLETE A SET SO THEY JUST SORT OF CLUTTER UP MY INSERT BOXES SHOVED IN WITH DONRUSS BECAUSE WHERE ELSE COULD I PUT THEM. BUT A BRAVES CARD? EASY PEASY, THAT GETS SHOVED IN THE BOX WITH ALL MY BRAVES PLAYERS. ORGANIZATION! I APPRECIATE THIS CARD FOR THE SUPER ZOOMED IN PHOTO THAT IS TRYING TO ESCAPE THE EDGE OF THE CARD AND FOR THE WONKY ETCHING ON THOSE FLAMES. THAT LICK OF FLAME ON THE TOP OF THE BALL LOOKS ESPECIALLY AWKWARD 


THE BACK: JUST LIKE THE FRONT EXCEPT TEXT AND EASIER TO SEE. THIS WAS THE IMAGE THAT BLOGGER DECIDED TO EAT WHEN I WAS MOVING AROUND THE PICS TO PUT THEM IN THE RIGHT PLACE. PRETTY SURE A DEMON HAS TAKEN OVER THIS WEBSITE AND IT DEMANDS TRIBUTE. THIS IS WHERE I WAS PLANNING TO EMBED MY FAVORITE PINK FLOYD SONG BUT EMBEDDING IS A PAIN NOW TOO SO LINKED IT IS

1993 TOPPS MELVIN NIEVES ROOKIE


28 YEARS LATER I STILL AIN'T FINISHED THIS DAMN SET DESPITE OPENING PACKS AND BOXES AND FISHING THEM OUT OF REPACKS. I'M STARTING TO WONDER IF I NEVER COMPLETE ANY SETS BECAUSE THEN I'D LOSE ALL INTEREST IN THE SET. I STILL EXAMINE EVERY 1989 TOPPS CARD I COME ACROSS HOPING IT'S THAT #$%^& CRAIG MCMURTRY CARD THAT IS INEXPLICABLY MISSING FROM THE BINDER. I COMPLETED THE 2000 SET YEARS AGO AND I JUST SHOVE THOSE GRAY THINGS ASIDE WITHOUT A THOUGHT


AIIGHT LETS CHECK OUT THESE TOP PROSPECTS

JEROMY BURNITZ - PLAYED 14 YEARS, WAS REALLY GOOD FOR MILWAUKEE, WAS EVEN AN ALL-STAR. BUT WAS ALSO A MET SO 

MELVIN NIEVES - HAS MORE BASEBALL CARDS AS A BRAVE THAN GAMES PLAYED FOR THE BRAVES. PLAYED TWO FULL SEASONS FOR DETROIT. NEGATIVE WAR

RICH BECKER - A FEW DECENT YEARS WITH MINNESOTA THEN BOUNCED ALL OVER THE PLACE. MET AND TIGER.  ENTIRE CAREER EARNINGS IS LESS THAN WHAT CHASE ANDERSON IS GETTING FROM THE PHILLIES THIS YEAR

SHON WALKER - PITTSBURGH'S 1ST ROUND PICK, NEVER MADE IT PAST HIGH A BALL. HIGHER WAR THEAN MELVIN


2013 GARBAGE PAIL MINI MECHANIC AL

THIS CARD IS FANTASTIC. TRASH MECHA VS GARBAGE GODZILLA. HELICOPTERS. PEOPLE FLEEING. BUILDINGS CRUMBLING LIKE GINGERBREAD HOUSES. ONLY PROBLEM IS THIS IS FROM TEH TIME PERIOD WHERE TOPPS WAS DOING A MINI VERSION OF EVERYTHING IN THE 75 TOPPS SIZE. THE SMALLER CARD SIZE DOES NOT DO JUSTICE TO THE ART ON THESE CARDS. I'M GONNA STICK TO STANDARD SIZE GPKS FROM NOW ON


I'LL BE THE FIRST TO ADMIT A LOT OF THE GAG COMICS ON THE BACK OF GPKS ARE TERRIBLE. THIS ONE IS NOT. AN EVIL WITCH SUMMONING A GOT-DAMN DEMON FROM HELL TO DO THE DISHES IS A CLASSIC JEST. ONE OF MY FAVORITE FRONT-BACK COMBOS EVER

2011 GOODWIN CHAMPIONS ADDIE JOSS MINI


I LOVE GOODWIN CHAMPIONS AND HAVE A LOT OF CARDS FROM THE EARLY SETS BUT I'M PRETTY SURE I HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN A BASE CARD OF THE STUFF SINCE 2016 EVEN THOUGH I KNOW FOR A FACT IT'S STILL BEING PRODUCED. OH WELL. 98% OF COLLECTORS HATE ART CARDS BUT I LOVE THEM AND IF YOU WANT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW BAD ADDIE LOOKS ON THIS CARD I BESEECH YOU TO GO FIND THE ORIGINAL PHOTO THIS IS BASED ON. MY BOY HERE LOOKS LIKE IF LURCH WAS A ROMERO ZOMBIE. DUDE LOOKS ROUGH EVEN FOR 1910


A SAD END FOR ADDIE AND I FEEL BAD FOR THE ZOMBIE JOKE NOW. I'M GLAD I WAS ABLE TO SCROUNGE AT LEAST A FEW GOOD MINIS OFF THE SITE ALTHOUGH I HAVE TOO MANY LOOSE MINIS NOW AND NO PLASTIC SHEETS FOR TEHM TO BE PUT INTO

ALLEN & GINTER SOME WAR BULLSHIT


I DON'T LIKE WAR AND I REALLY DON'T CARE FOR TRADING CARDS ABOUT WAR AND IF I WASN'T TRYING TO BUILD ALL THE GINTERS I WOULDN'T HAVE BOTHERED WITH THESE CARDS


JUST FUCK WARS, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT. SUCH A FUCKING WASTE

201? OPENING DAY FRANCHISE FLASHBACK JULIO TEHERAN


OK FINE OPENING DAY INSERTS ARE SUPER GREAT AND PROBABLY BETTER THAN THE FLAGSHIP INSERTS. THIS DAY-GLO MARQUEE SURROUNDING JULIO WEARING THE THROWBACK NEGRO LEAGE ATLANTA BLACK CRACKERS UNIFORM IS SUPER AWESOME. HAPPY TO SEE TEHERAN GET SIGNED BY DETROIT, I HOPE HE HAS A GOOD YEAR

HONUS BONUS NONSENSE YONDER ALONSO SILVER

HONUS BONUS ADS WERE ALL OVER THE PLACE FOR MONTHS BUT I NEVER EVER SAW A SINGLE PACK OR EVEN CARD UNTIL I SAW A HEAVILY DISCOUNTED BOX AT A CARDS HOW TWO YEARS LATER. I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THE GAME WAS OR HOW IT WORKED BUT IT'S TOO LATE NOW ANYWAY. THIS IS A SPECIAL SILVER PARALLEL CARD AS YOU CAN TELL BECAUSE IT IS SO UGLY


THE REASON I BOUGHT THIS CARD IS BECAUSE I WANTED TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE HONUS BONUS CARD IN MY COLLECTION AS A KEEPSAKE OF SUCH A HORRIBLE FLOP. IT FITS IN NICELY WITH MY DONRUSS TOP OF THE ORDER AND UPPER DECK FLYBALL GAME FAILURE CARDS. I HAD A CHOICE BETWEEN SILVER YONDER HERE WHO WAS ON THE BRAVES ROSTER WHEN I BOUGHT IT AND A PLAIN ADAM DUVALL CARD. ALONSO WAS WAIVED BY THE TIME I RECEIVED THE CARD AND DUVALL HIT A BUNCH OF BOPS LAST YEAR FOR THE BRAVES SO CONSIDER THIS ANOTHER GAME CARD FAIL

201? PRIZM TEAM MVP FELIX HERNANDEZ


DESPITE THE CARD BEING LITERALLY TWO INCHES AWAY FROM ME AT THE MOMENT I AN TOO LAZY TO CHECK THE BACK AND FIND OUT THE YEAR THIS CARD IS FROM. 2013 PROBABLY. OF ALL THE PAIN THE PANDEMIC HAS INFLICTED ON ME I FEEL THE MOST REGRET THAT IT STOLE FELIX HERNANDEZ REGULAR SEASON STARTS FOR THE BRAVES AWAY FROM ME. I DID GET MY TOPPS CARD THOUGH AND IF I HOLD THE CARD BY THE TOP CORNER AND SQUINT I CAN PRETEND KING FELIX IS WEARING THAT BRAVES UNI AND HURLING A MASTERPIECE IN MAY. IT'S GOOD TO HAVE DREAMS



AND THERE WE GO ANOTHER CARD SERIES COMPLETED ON THIS BLOG AND NOT ABANDONED TO THE DRAFT FOLDER VOID. MY LATEST CANADA CARD PICKUPS ARE BEING SHOWN OFF IN A TWITTER THREAD IF YOU WANT MORE. MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER ORDER? OR MAYBE I SHOULD SORT THE STUFF I GOT

BLACK FRIDAY COMC PICKUPS - PART 5: MACCA

POSTING THIS ON GEORGE HARRISON'S BIRTHDAY BECAUSE I PLANNED IT THIS WAY AND IT WASN'T BECAUSE I'VE PROCRASTINATED SO BADLY THAT I'M NOT EVEN HALFWAY THOROUGH POSTING THESE CARDS I GOT IN DECEMBER AND IT'S ALMOST FREAKIGN MARCH

1964 TOPPS BEATLES COLOR - PAUL & RINGO


LIKE ALL OLDS, I LOVE THE BEATLES BECAUSE I STOLE MY MOM'S RECORDS AND LISTENED TO THEM ALL THEN WENT OUT AND BOUGHT THE ONES SHE WAS MISSING ON CASSETTE AND THEN WENT OUT AND BOUGHT HALF OF THEM AGAIN ON CD AND THEN WHEN I RAN OUT OF BEATLES ALBUMS I STARTED BUYING BOOTLEGS AND SOLO STUFF AND THEN I HIT COLLEGE AND DISCOVERED THE PIXIES AND THEN BYE BYE BEATLES BUT I WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH ANY SILLY CHILD WHO SAYS THE BEATLES ARE DUMB BECAUSE JOHN IS PROBLEMATIC AS FUCK NOW

I MEAN, HE IS, BUT THE MUSIC IS STILL GREAT AND NO ONE WAS BETTER AT TUNING INTO THE MUSICAL ZEITGEIST, FINDING A NEW UPCOMING GENRE, MAKING EXACTLY ONE (1) SONG IN THAT STYLE AND THEN GETTING BORED AND MOVING ON TO SOMETHING ELSE

ANYWAY, I <3 TEH BEETLES AND I HAVE WANTED ONE OF THE MANY TOPPS CARDS OF THEM FOR A VERY LONG TIME BUT THEY WERE SUPER EXPENSIVE WHEN I WAS A KID BECAUSE BOOMERS AND THEN WHEN I WAS AN ADULT I STILL DIDN'T WANT TO PAY THE 5-10 BUCKS A CARD PRICES AT THE RANDOM ANTIQUE MALLS AND MUSIC SHOPS THAT WERE THE ONLY PLACE YOU COULD FIND THE THINGS IN REAL LIFE. AND FORGET EBAY, YOU COULD BUY CARDS FROM 1888 FOR LESS THAN SOME RANDOM B&W BEATLES CARD. BUT NOW IN THE END TIMES YOU CAN FIND BEAT UP COPIES FOR UNDER A COUPLE BUCKS WHICH IS ACCEPTABLE



SO WHY WAS THIS MY CHOICE IN CHEAP 60S BOY BAND MEMORABILIA? TWO REASONS. ONE - THE SCRIBBLES ON THE BACK. EVERYONE KNOWS I LIKE MY CARDS IN THE SHITTIEST CONDITION POSSIBLE. THIS USED TO BE BECAUSE THEY WERE CHEAP AND I LIKE HAVING MORE OLD CARDS IN BAD CONDITION INSTEAD OF ONE NICE CARD. BUT AFTER DECADES OF MENTAL DETERIORATION, I ACTUALLY LIKE HAVING CARDS IN THE WORST POSSIBLE CONDITION NOW. MY DISEASED MINDS SEES CREASES, HOLEPUNCHES AND ESPECIALLY RANDOM SCRIBBLING AS ADDED VALUE THAT MAKES THE CARD UNIQUE. I SAW THIS CARD AS THE RARE 1/1 ED SULLIVAN SHOW VARIATION. AND NOT ONLY THAT WHOEVER PLACED THEIR MARK ON THIS CARD WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSED THAT THE BEATLE HAD TO RETURN TO LIVERPOOL. AS A COMLETE ASIDE, IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BEATLES ON THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, HUNT DOWN THE GILBERT GOTTFRIED AMAZING COLOSSAL PODCAST FEATURING MARTY ALLEN. MARTY GOES ON FOR A HALF AN HOUR DESCRIBING HIS APPEARANCE ON THE SHOW WITH THE FAB FOUR AND HOW HE BECAME GREAT FRIENDS WITH JOHN LENNON

SECOND REASON. THE PANDEMIC INCARCERATION HAS BEEN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT FOR EVERYONE BUT HAS ALSO FORCED US TO LOOK INWARD AND FINALLY ACCEPT HARD TRUTHS WE HAVE BEEN DENYING IN OUR LIVES. MY HARD TRUTH IS THAT PAUL IS MY FAVORITE BEATLE AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN. MY MOM'S FAVORITE BEATLE IS JOHN SO I PRETENDED I LIKED HIM  BEST FOR A WHILE, AND MY DAD ACTUALLY KINDA LOOKS LIKE GEORGE IN THE RIGHT LIGHT SO HE WAS THE COOLEST FOR A WHILE ESPECIALLY WHEN HE BECAME A WILBURY. GEORGE, NOT MY DAD, ALTHOUGH HE'D BE A GREAT WILBURY. BUT NO, I ALWAYS LIKED PAUL BEST BUT REFUSED TO BELIEVE IT BECAUSE PAUL WAS THE CUTE ONE, PAUL WAS THE POPULAR ONE, PAUL HAD THE SCHMALTZY POP SOLO CAREER. I'M A DEDICATED WEIRDO CYNICAL HIPSTER, I CAN'T ADMIT LIKING THE POPULAR BEATLE. THEN SOMETIME LAST YEAR I SAW SOMEONE TWEET THIS


SO I LISTENED TO TEMPORARY SECRETARY BY PAUL MCCARTNEY

AND SIMPLY HAD A wonderful TIME

I WILL NOT LINK THE SONG BECAUSE, NO, YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE TO GO ON THAT JOURNEY BY YOUR OWN FREE WILL\

BUT IT WAS AT THIS TIME THAT I REACHED ENLIGHTENMENT

YES, PAUL IS THE CUTE BEATLE. PAUL IS THE POPULAR BEATLE. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

PAUL IS ALSO THE WEIRDEST BEATLE

LISTEN TO HIS SONGS. FOR EVERY SILLY LOVE SONG THERE ARE THREE UNCLE ALBERT/ADMIRAL HALSEY BATSHIT CLUSTERFUCKS. YESTERDAY STARTED OUT AS SCRAMBLED EGGS. THE MAN HAD THE COLOSSAL AUDACITY TO FOLLOW UP WHY DON'T WE DO IT IN THE ROAD WITH I WILL ON THE WHITE ALBUM. GO LISTEN TO RAM, THAT ALBUM WILDLY SWINGS BETWEEN STRAIGHTFORWARD INDIE ROCK AND UTTER MADNESS. IN TIMES OF EXTREME STRESS HE GOES AND HIDES HIMSELF AWAY AND STRAIGHT UP CREATES A WHOLE-ASS ALBUM ALL BY HIMSELF - MCCARTNEY 1 WHEN THE BEATLES BROKE UP, MCARTNEY 2 WHEN WINGS BROKE UP AND NOW MCCARTNEY 3 WHEN HE GOT LOCKED INTO HIS HOUSE BY THE GODDAMN PANDEMIC. HE'S EVEN GOT AN AMBIENT TRANCE REMIX ALBUM OF HIS SONGS FFS. PAUL MCCARTNEY'S MUSIC IS SUPER CREATIVE AND WEIRD AS HELL AND I LOVE WEIRD MUSIC AND PAUL IS THE BEST AND I WILL FIGHT YOU

ALSO RINGO IS ON THIS CARD AND RINGO IS FREAKIN' MR. CONDUCTOR AND THAT'S COOL AS HELL

KNEEL

 I HAVEN'T POSTED IN FOREVER BECAUSE EVERYTHING SUCKS RIGHT NOW AND I HAVE NO ENERGY, TIME OR MOTIVATION TO DO MUCH OF ANYTHING LET ALONE SOMETHING MILDLY CREATIVE. THIS SUCKS BECAUSE I DO HAVE A FEW POSTS IN DRAFTS AND A NEW FOLDER OF FRESHLY SCANNED STUFF TO SHOW OFF BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT ACTUALLY POSTING SOMETHING MY MIND GOES BLANK AND THE FINGERS CURL UP LIKE FRED SANFORD WITH ARTHRITIS AND REFUSE TO TYPE AND I END UP STARING INTO SPACE AGAIN. I FEEL BAD ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO POST STUFF BUT 98% OF MY ENERGY IS FOCUSED ON JUST KEEPING MY SHIT TOGETHER. IN AN ATTEMPT TO BREAK OUT OF THE RUT I AM POSTING A RANDOM-ASS CARD I RECENTLY FOUND THAT I THINK YOU WILL LIKE

GENERAL ZOD STICKER


I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT BECAUSE WHAT IS THERE TO SAY

DO WHAT YOU CAN TO KEEP YOUR SHIT TOGETHER FOLKS, IT'S TOUGH OUT THERE

BLACK FRIDAY COMC PICKUPS - PART 4: KONGA

BACK TO SOME OLDY MOLDY CARDS

THE GODZILLA VS. KONG TRAILER RECEINTLY DROPPED SO THIS IS ALMOST KINDA TOPICAL

1966 MONSTER LAFFS KONGA


I HAVE FINALLY GOTTEN A BINDER TOGETHER FOR ALL THE RANDOM MONSTER CARDS I'VE PICKED UP THROUGH THE YEARS. THIS CARD FEATURES A SCENE FROM THE MOVIE KONGA, A BRITISH KING KONG RIPOFF WHERE ALFRED FROM BATMAN TURNS A BABY CHIMP INTO A RAMPAGING MONSTER WITH SOME GROWTH SERUM OR SOME SUCH NOSENSE. I HAVE NOT SEEN THE FILM UNLESS IT WAS ON MST3K OR SOMETHING AND I SHOULD PROBABLY CHANGE THAT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE JOKE CAPTION IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN WHICH IS FAIRLY COMMON ON THESE CARDS. NEVERTHELESS, SOLIDARITY WITH OUR SANITATION DEPARTMENT COMRADES. STICK IT TO THE MAN


THIS SET IS AN ODD ONE. SO THE DEAL WITH THIS SET IS THAT IT IS A REPRINT OF A PREVIOUS MONSTER LAFFS SET THAT WAS DISTRIBUTED LIKE THE 1980-81 BASKETBALL SET WITH THREE PERFORATED CARD PANELS. THIS SET IS CALLED THE 1963 MONSTER LAFFS MIDGEES SET WHICH IS A RIDICULOUS NAME. THE ORIGINAL HAS 153 CARDS IN IT, WITH A BUNCH BEING SHORT PRINTED BECAUSE OF COURSE THEY WERE. THIS REGULAR SIZED SET ONLY SWIPES 66 CARDS FROM THAT SET, MAYBE A SECOND SERIES GOT CANCELLED

THE DESIGN ON THESE THINGS IS VERY SPARSE BUT I LIKE IT. THE NUMBER TOMBSTONE WITH SKULL, MOON BAT AND EXTENSIVE CROSSHATCHING IS AWESOME, AS IS THE TITLE LETTERING. BAD JOKE IS AS DARK AS IT IS TERRIBLE. ALL THESE CARDS ARE FROM GOOD OLD AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL PICTURES. SAMUEL Z. ARKOFF AND ROGER CORMAN AND BERT I. GORDON FUCK YEAH. THIS CHECKLIST IDENTIFIES A LOT OF THE MOVIES THE CARDS TOOK PICTURES FROM AND NOW I WANT TO GO WATCH SOME CRAPPY MONSTER MOVIES AND SEE IF I CAN IDENTIFY SOME MISSING MOVIES

CLEANING UP ONLINE DIME BOX CARD PURCHASES 3/4

 I WARNED YOU ABOUT HIPPOS BRO!


I TOLD YOU DOG!*

OK TIME FOR MORE CARDS


LAST SCRATCH OFF CARD. LET'S WIN THAT GRAND PRIZE

1998 UPPER DECK ANASTASIA 3D BAT LUST


SO MOST OF YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT I HAVE A LOT OF NON SPORTS CARDS. TOO MANY IF WE ARE BEING HONEST. WHILE I LIKE THE ART CARDS AND DINOSAUR CARDS AND MONSTER CARDS AND WHATNOT I REALLY HAVE NO USE FOR A BUNCH OF CRAP LIKE CHARMED AND 24 AND A BUNCH OF DISNEY STUFF. ONE THING I AM COLLECTING THAT YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT IS THE 1998 ANASTASIA SET. I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE FILM AND HAVE NO INTEREST. BUT ANASTASIA CARDS WERE PRINTED ON THE SAME PRESS AS 1990 UPPER DECK AND ABOUT AS MANY WERE PRINTED. THERE ARE TONS OF THESE OUT THERE AND ANY RANDOM LOT OF NON-SPORTS CRAP WILL HAVE SOME PACKS IF NOT BOXES. IF NOT CASES. AS A RESULT I HAVE MOST OF THE SET AND AM ONLY MISSING A FEW SHORT PRINTS LIKE THIS LENTICULAR CARD FEATURING  TWO BATS MAKING OUT


NO INSERTS IN THIS SET, THE DIE CUTS AND PUZZLE CARDS AND LENTICULARS ARE PART OF THE SET. I HAD NO LENTICULARS SO NOW I HAVE ONE. WHY NOT? BATS ARE GREAT

1990-91 FLEER DENNIS RODMAN


1990-91 FLEER SET IS COMPLETE! EXCEPT FOR ALL STARS. AND MAYBE ROOKIE SENSATIONS. DID THEY DO THOSE THAT YEAR? THIS WAS THE SET WHERE FLEER BASKETBALL BROKE OUT AND BASKETBALL CARDS WERE FINALLY ABLE TO BE FOUND EVERYWHERE. I HAD BEEN BUYING PACKS AND BOXES SINCE 86 BUT I AM A WEIRDO. AS A RESULT THE SET IS KIND OF JUNK WAXY NOW BUT I STILL LIKE IT. I THINK THIS MAKES THE 5TH COMPLETE FLEER BASKETBALL SET FOR ME AND I'M STILL LOOKING TO MAKE IT MORE

2014 GOLDEN AGE RABBIT MARANVILLE MINI


RABBIT MARANVILLE IS A POSTER CHILD FOR SNOBBY 'EW THERE ARE A LOT OF TERRIBLE PLAYERS IN THE HALL OF FAME' BUT SCREW ANYONE WITH THAT ATTITUDE. DUDE PLAYED 23 SEASONS, WON THE WORLD SERIES, HAD A LATE CAREER RESURGENCE WITH SOME SUPER SHITTY BRAVES TEAMS AND HAS A HALL OF FAME NAME


GOLDEN AGE CAME IN RELATIVELY LATE IN THE RETRO MINIS GAME AND GOT STUCK WITH THE MONO CIGARETTE BRAND WHICH I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE. HERE'S A GOOD ARTICLE FROM NET 54 TO GET YOU UP TO SPEED. IF YOU ARE A NON-CLICKER BASICALLY IT'S A SUPER RARE PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE SET WITH A BUNCH OF RANDOM ACTRESSES IN IT. I DON'T HAVE MANY GOLDEN AGE MINIS, I WONDER WHAT OTHER ODDBALL HIPSTER BRANDS THEY USED ON THE BACK

YO MOMMA 2008 JOEY VOTTO


LOTTA YO MOMMA CARDS FROM HERE ON OUT. HERE'S A REPRINT FROM A CARD FROM TWO YEARS EARLIER FROM THE SET IT WAS INSERTED IN. A LOT OF CARDS CHOSEN FROM THE PREVIOUS DECADE FOR THIS SET HAVE ENDED UP BEING DUBIOUS CHOICES BUT JOEY VOTTO ROOKIE IS LEGIT. IF/WHEN TOPPS MINES THIS GIMMICK FOR ANOTHER REPRINT SET IN THE FUTURE I WILL NOT BE SURPRISED TO SEE JOEY ROOKIE AGAIN

DID I WIN A MAJOR AWARD???


NO! INCOMPLETE PASS. FOOTBALL FAIL

2016 TOPPS WRIGLEY FIELD JASON HEYWARD


HEYWARD INSERT FOR A DIME! I DON'T THINK THERE ARE ANY MORE OF THOSE LEFT BUT I MAY BE WRONG. THE JERSEY-TIE COMBO AND PLASTIC IVY IS ADORABLE

YO MOMMA 2007 UBALDO JIMENEZ


WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO UBALDO JIMENEZ? THIS WAS A GOOD CHOICE FOR 2010 AS JIMENEZ HAD A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THE ROCKIES BUT THEN HE GOT TRADED TO CLEVELAND AND THE WHEELS CAME OFF. PITCHING IS TOUGH, MAN

SOME DAMN YEAR AND SET GARBAGE PAIL KIDS FREAKY FRANK


TOP TEN ALL-TIME GARBAGE PAIL KID. THERE WERE (ARE?) A LOT OF CARDS FROM SOME GPK MUSIC THEMED SET ON THE SITE AND I GOOGLED A BUNCH OF THEM TO SEE WHO THEY WERE, THEN FOUND FREAKY FRANK AND WAS LIKE NOPE, THIS IS THE ONE FOR ME. DON'T EAT THAT YELLOW SNOW CONE KIDS

YO MOMMA 2003 FUTURE STARS JOSH HAMILTON & CARL CRAWFORD


REGULAR MVP AND ALL STAR MVP ON A FUTURE STARS CARD AND I BET THE ACTUAL CARD IS ALSO IN DIME BOXES OR WORSE. DOESN'T HELP THAT THEIR ACTUAL TOPPS ROOKIE CARDS ARE FROM THE 1999 TRADED SET. AND HAMILTON HAS AN ACTUAL RC LOGO CARD FROM 2007. AND THE FIRST RESULT FOR 'PEOPLE ALSO ASK' WHEN GOOGLING HAMILTON IS 'WHAT HAPPENED TO JOSH HAMILTON'. AND YOU DON'T FEEL GOOD AFTER CLICKING THAT LINK. CARL CRAWFORD PULLING AN ANDRUW JONES AFTER SIGNING A CONTRACT WITH THE DODGERS DOESN'T SEEM SO BAD

YO MOMMA 2009 DAVID PRICE


ANOTHER EXCELLENT CHOICE IN RETROSPECT. CY YOUNG AWARD, GOT A RING, HAS MOSTLY BEEN AN EXCELLENT PITCHER THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER. HE HAS SOME INJURY PROBLEMS AND BOSTON FANS HATED HIM FOR A WHILE BECAUSE BOSTON FANS, BUT C'MON. HE'S GOT 150 WINS IN AN ERA WHERE THAT'S A BORDERLINE RIDICULOUS NUMBER

YO MOMMA 1953 JOHN PODRES

NICE CARD TO FINISH UP THE FIRST BATCH OF CANADIAN CARDS. CAN'T GO WRONG WITH A '53 BROOKLYN DODGER. THIS IS ALSO A HIGH NUMBER SHORT PRINT AND THE ORIGINAL BACK VERSION MIGHT END UP IN MY 53 BINDER IF I CAN FIND IT BECAUSE I WILL CERTAINLY NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE ORIGINAL EVER AGAIN

*GO READ HOMESTUCK. IT'S ONLY ABOUT EIGHT BILLION PAGES LONG AND STILL SOMEHOW WORKS EVEN AFTER FLASH WAS MURDERED

NO REALLY, IT'S FUN

CLEANING UP ONLINE DIME BOX CARD PURCHASES 2/4

 MY EDIT BUTTON DISAPPEARED AGAIN SO MY WANTLISTS ARE TRAPPED IN AMBER AND I AM SAD. I'VE ALREADY GOT THE SITE UP THOUGH SO HAVE MOARER DIME CARDS

2016 ALLEN & GINTER NATURAL WONDERS AMAZON RAINFOREST


I THINK I'VE ALREADY WIPED OUT ALL THE GINTER CARDS I NEED ON THAT SITE. THERE WERE SOME 2020 CARDS ON THERE FOR ABOUT 18 MINUTES BUT I WAS NOT FAST ENOUGH


THE MISERABLE PART OF ME WONDERS IF THE FOREST ON THE FRONT HAS ALREADY BEEN BURNED DOWN SO CATTLE CAN GRAZE THERE FOR EXACTLY ONE YEAR BEFORE THE FIELD IS ABANDONED

2016 ALLEN & GINTER MASCOTS IN THE WILD MOOSE, ELEPHANT, TIGER

CAN I JUST SAY THAT BLOGGER HAS NOT ONLY EATEN THE PICTURE OF THE BACK OF THE ELEPHANT CARD BUT NOW IT REFUSES TO CENTER ALIGN THIS TEXT. PRETTY SURE GOOGLE IS SABOTAGING THE SITE SO THEY CAN DUMP IT WITHOUT TOO MUCH FUSS 


CAN'T GET ANY SQUIRREL CARDS FROM TOPPS BUT I GOT SEVERAL MOOSES

MEESES

WHATEVER. THE ONLY TEAM I KNOW WITH A MOOSE MASCOT IS A HOCKEY TEAM, I GUESS THIS IS SEATTLE'S MASCOT. THERE SHOULD BE MORE TEAMS CALLING THEM SELVES MOOSE. THOSE ARE BIG SCARY ANIMALS


NO TEAMS CALLED THE ELEPHANTS EITHER WHICH IS RIDICULOUS. ARMIES TOOK ELEPHANTS INTO WAR BACK IN THE OLDEN DAYS FOR FARTS SAKE. BIG ASS MONSTERS WITH GIANT TUSKS AND A NIMBLE SNOOT THAT COULD SMACK YOU SILLY. CARNIVORE BIAS IN TEAM MASCOTS IS DUMB. THE MEANEST ASSHOLE ANIMAL ON THE PLANET IS THE HIPPOPOTAMUS. THOSE FUCKS WILL CHOMP YOUR HEAD OFF IN ONE BITE, STOMP YOUR GUTS OUT AND THEN SHIT ALL OVER YOUR CORPSE JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE BORED. BUT IF YOU NAMED A TEAM THAT EVERYONE WOULD LAUGH, IT'S DISRESPECTFUL


EVERY DAMN LEAGUE HAS A BIG CAT MASCOT THOUGH BECAUSE BIG ASS CATS ARE COOL AS HELL. THE POOR TIGER HAS BEEN HORRIBLY ABUSED BY ROTTEN HUMANS. HUNTED TO NEAR EXTINCTION BY DUMBASSES AND THEN ASSOCIATED FOREVER WITH OTHER DUMBASSES TRYING TO EXPLOIT THE ONES LEFT THANKS TO A NETFLIX SHOW. TIGERS CAN'T CATCH A BREAK. I WILL REFRAIN FROM MAKING FUN OF THE ACTUAL BASEBALL TEAM BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN TO THE WORLD SERIES TWICE THIS CENTURY WHILE MY TEAM HAS NOT

2019 HERITAGE JASON HEYWARD


YAY HEY
I GOTTA SAY BACK TEN YEARS AGO OR SO I WAS NOT EXPECTING 2019 HERITAGE TO LOOK SO GOOD BUT IT DOES. TOO BAD THEY UPPED THE NUMBER OF SHORTPRINTS AND PUT ALL THE GOOD STARS AND ROOKIES IN THE SHORTPRINTS AND ADDED A BUNCH OF VARIATION GARBAGE AND THE PRICES ARE ALL JACKED UP AND I GENERALLY JUST HATE THE SET NOW AND WOULD RATHER HAVE ORIGINAL 1970 CARDS AT THIS POINT FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST. JASON LOOKS GOOD THO


NOT TO MENTION THAT TOPPS KEEPS FUCKING WITH HERITAGE HIGH NUMBERS AND NOW IT'S BACK TO BEING ONLINE ONLY OR HOBBY ONLY OR WHATEVER THE FUCK AND THEY BOTCHED THE CARD STOCK AND REGULAR HERITAGE PACKS ARE FLOODING BIG LOTS NOW. GOD I'M AFRAID OF HOW BADLY THEY'RE GOING TO BUTCHER 1972 HERITAGE

2014 GOLDEN AGE ARTIS GILMORE


MORE GOLDEN AGE ALTHOUGH THIS ONE WAS BOUGHT BEFORE THE GROUP I POSTED A LITTLE WHILE BACK. ARTIS GILMORE IS MY FAVORITE PLAYER NEVER TO WEAR A HAWKS UNIFORM AND WILL BE UNTIL I CROAK. I HAD A POSTER OF ARTIS WHEN I WAS A KID WHERE HE WAS RUINING STEVE HAWES' LIFE AND I'M NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED TO IT AND THERE ARE NO GOOD PICTURES OF IT ONLINE AND I DESPERATELY WISH I COULD JUST STARE AT THAT POSTER FOR A HOUR ONE MORE TIME IN MY LIFE, IT WAS SUCH A GOOD DAMN POSTER


ONE OF THESE DAYS, MAYBE MANY DECADES FROM NOW, I'M GOING TO HAVE SOME CASH TO BURN AND THE FIRST THING I'M GETTING IS A KENTUCKY COLONELS T-SHIRT. 1975 ABA CHAMPS, MOTHERFUCKERS. AND WHY THE HELL DID IT TAKE UNTIL 2011 FOR GILMORE TO GET IN THE HALL OF FAME. HALLS OFS FAMES ARE BULLSHITS

1991 PRO SET YO! MTV RAPS PUBLIC ENEMY, CHUCK D.


WHEN I SAW THERE WERE YO! MTV RAPS CARDS I IMMEDIATELY LOOKED FOR PUBLIC ENEMY AND BEASTIE BOYS. I WAS TOO SLOW ON THE BEASTIES BUT PUBLIC ENEMY WAS MY FIRST CHOICE SO I'M HAPPY TO HAVE IT. I CAUGHT A LOT OF SHIT IN HIGH SCHOOL FOR LIKING PE AND SPIKE LEE MOVIES BUT I HAD MY FUN AND THOSE THINGS ARE STILL WAY COOLER THAN WHATEVER BON JOVI BULLSHIT THOSE IDIOTS WERE LISTENING TO ANYWAY


I HAD FEAR OF A BLACK PLANET ON VINYL BUT IT GOT TRASHED AT A PARTY AND LATER DISAPPEARED SOMEHOW. I DIDN'T MEAN FOR THIS POST TO HAVE A 'BELOVED ARTIFACTS FROM MY YOUTH NOW LOST FOREVER' THEME BUT HERE WE ARE. I ENDED UP WITH ALL THE ALBUMS ON CD EXCEPT FOR IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK WHICH IS ON CASSETTE. THIS WAS A POOR CHOICE AT THE TIME BUT IS A PRETTY COOL THING TO HAVE NOW


CHUCK D. IS THE BEST. WE NEED MORE CHUCK D.S NOWADAYS


2020 THREW US ALL A HECKUVA KNUCKLEBALL LIKE PHIL'S

TOPPS SET I FORGOT THE HAME OF HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME JOHNNY CASH


SPEAKING OF WE NEED MORE OF, JOHNNY CASH. I WITH I KNEW WHAT THE FUCK OUTLAW COUNTRY WAS IN MY YOUTH AND DIDN'T JUST MOOSH ALL COUNTRY TOGETHER WITH THAT WHITEBREAD POP NASHVILLE SHIT. MISSED OTUON SOME GOOD LISTENING BUT MAYBE I CAN APPRECIATE IT MORE NOW. I LITERALLY CANNOT REMEMBER THE NAME OF THIS TOPPS NON-SPORT PRODUCT AT ALL BUT I DO KNOW THAT PEOPLE RIPPED THE SHIT OUT OF IT CHASING AUTOGRAPHS OR SOMETHING AND ALL THE INSERTS GOT DUMPED INTO SLOPBUCKETS FOR ME TO FEAST ON. I KNOW I GOT THE VINCENT PRICE VERSION OF THIS CARD FROM A DIME BOX AND THE ENTIRETY OF THAT GOOFY MUSTACHE INSERT SET OUT OF A FIVE DOLLAR JUNK BOX. CELEBRITY SETS ARE THE BEST 

1997-98 TOPPS FINEST DOMINIQUE WILKINS


DUE TO BAD TRADING CARD TIMING AT ONE POINT THERE WERE WAY MORE FINEST CARDS OF DOMINIQUE IN CELTICS AND SPURS UNIS THAN THERE WERE HAWKS FINEST CARDS. THANKFULLY IN THE LATE 00S TOPPS STARTED PUTTING LEGENDS CARDS IN EVERY PRODUCT SO BALANCE WAS RESTORED. I DON'T MIND NIQUE IN A SPURS UNI BECAUSE I ALWAYS LIKED THE SPURS. SEE: ARTIS GILMORE A FEW CARDS UP. IN RETROSPECT WILKINS ON THE SPURS WAS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO ABANDON THE HAWKS AND BECOME A SAN ANTONIO FAN SINCE I ALREADY LIKED DAVID ROBINSON. MISSED OPPORTUNITY RIGHT THERE. OH WELL LOYAL TO MY TEAMS TO A FAULT. EXCEPT THE FALCONS, FUCK THOSE GUYS AND THE ENTIRE LEAGUE 28-3 FUCK YOU ALL TO HELL. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE NIQUE THOUGH

FOR ALL OF YOU CONCERNED ABOUT THAT UGLY PROTECTIVE COATING COVERING UP POOR NIQUE'S FACE I ASSURE YOU THAT SHIT HAS BEEN PEELED OFF AND THE CARD PLACED LOVINGLY IN A BINDER. REMEMBER KIDS: FREE THAT FINEST
