ON WHATEVER DAY OF CARDMAS THIS IS

I GOT THE BINDING OF ISAAC DLC AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MYSELF AND AS A RESULT HAVE SPENT ALL MY FREE TIME TRYING TO BEAT GREED MODE WITH EVERY CHARACTER AND FAILING SPECTACULARLY AT THE DAILY CHALLENGE.


TIME 69TH AWWWW YEAH
OTHER RUNS HAVE NOT BEEN AS SUCCESSFUL
I'VE HAD TO UNINSTALL STEAM SO I CAN TYPE NONSENSE ABOUT BASEBALL CARDS FOR FIVE MINUTES

TWELVE CARD PACKS ARE BORING SO HERE'S 6 PACKS FEATURING TWELVE CARDS FOR THE TWELFTH DAY OF CARDMAS EVEN THOUGH IT'S LIKE THE 19TH DAY NOW. i'M NOT DIGGING UP ANY MORE PACKS TO FILL OUT THE POST SO ENJOY THESE ONES ANYWAY

UNKNOWN HARRY POTTER CHOCOLATE FROG PACK CARD


AM COMPLETELY SICK OF THE BOOKS AND WISH PEOPLE WOULD MAYBE PICK UP A DISCWORLD NOVEL FOR A CHANGE OF PACE. AT ONE POINT THOUGH I READ EM ALL AND STOOD IN LINE AT MIDNIGHT FOR MY OPPORTUNITY TO FATTEN JK'S BANK ACCOUNT AND BOUGHT ALL THE OVERPRICED TCHOTCHKES LIKE A SMALL PIECE OF FROG SHAPED CHOCOLATE FLAVORED FOOD PRODUCT AND A TRADING CARD FOR LIKE FOUR BUCKS. LUCKILY I GOT THIS LENTICULAR CARD OF GOTH ICON SEVERUS SNAPE FIGHTING A PURPLE SNAKE. LATER ON HE KILLS DUMBLEDORE, NORMAN IS HIS OWN MOM, BRUCE WILLIS IS DEAD THE WHOLE TIME AND ROSEBUD IS A SLED. ROWLING SHOULD HAVE CUT SOME OF THAT STUFF OUT OF THE 7TH BOOK IT WAS WAY TOO LONG. THE PACK IS CLEAR SO I CAN JUST SCAN IT UNOPENED AND I AIN'T TAKING IT OUT AND YOU CAN'T MAKE ME


2013 GARBAGE PAIL SERIES TWO DOLLAR TREE PACK


GOOD OL CHEAP GPK PACKS. MY SAVIOR WHEN DOLLAR TREE IS OUT OF THE THIRTY FOR A BUCK JUNK WAX BASEBALL PACKS. I HAVE TO ADMIT I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE BUT KUDOS ON THE FOOD PUN


THIS JOKE I GET. CUT THE CHEESE. AAAAAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. FARTS

FOOD JOKE HOT PACK WITH BRAINS BONUS. GRAPES ARE NOW TEN THOUSAND PERCENT MORE DISGUSTING

AND HERE WE ARE. THE MOST HORRIFYINGLY DETAILED GARBAGE PAIL KID ART I'VE EVER SEEN. MAKES JUNJI ITO LOOK LIKE HELLO FUCKING KITTY. TWISTED INDEED


TWO CONNECTING PUZZLE PIECES! FUCK YEAH! WITH MORE BONUS BRAINS!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! HIPPIES MAKE ADAM BOMB SAD. THIS IS WHY TRUMP WON. WELL, THAT AND ALL OF THE DIRTY CRIIIIIIIMES


HERE'S A CERTIFICATE FOR THE FURRY IN YOUR LIFE. THESE ALWAYS REMINDED ME OF MAD MAGAZINE WHICH IS APPROPRIATE SINCE A BUNCH OF THE ARTISTS WHO PAINTED GPKS CONTRIBUTED TO THE MAGAZINE. DIG THOSE CRAZY MARGINS


2017 MCDONALD'S POKEMON

ANOTHER CLEAR PACK I NEVER BOTHERED TO OPEN. BUT THIS TIME THERE'S SOME SUSPENSE!!! UNLESS YOU SCROLLED TOO FAR, THEN YOU KNOW IT'S A DIGLETT

...

DAMMIT


SPARKLY ALOLAN DIGLETT WITH SPECIAL SPELUNK MOVE. THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING SPELUNKY ON STEAM WHILE IT'S ON SALE BUT I'D JUST END UP PLAYING BINDING OF ISAAC FOR 400 MORE HOURS WHILE IT SAT UNLOVED IN MY LIBRARY. I WISH I WAS PLAYING ISAAC NOW INSTEAD OF WRITING ABOUT VIDEO GAME TRADING CARDS. BUT I DIGRESS. THESE CARDS WERE INCLUDED IN HAPPY MEAL TOYS, MY KIDS TOOK THE TOYS AND THREW THE CARDS ASIDE SO I SNAGGED EM. THE KIDS WANTED COOL POKEMON AND GOT THE BATTERY BUGS INSTEAD. BZZZZZT! NO SYLVEON FOR YOU!

THIS CARD IS PERFECTLY MINT EXCEPT FOR THE BIG DIVOT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE WHERE THE TOY SQUASHED IT



2012 PANINI PRIZM

REMEMBER WHEN THESE APPEARED AND WE WERE ALL ARGUING ABOUT WHETHER THEY WERE BETTER OR WORSE THAN CHROME AND NOW WE'RE ALL RAIDING TARGET CHASING LUKA DONCIC MULTICOLOR PRIZMFRACTORS TO FLIP SO WE CAN AFFORD THE MORTGAGE THIS MONTH. GOOD TIMES. THIS PACK WAS A BUCK AT THE NO-LONGER-EXISTING CARD SHOP IN ALPHARETTA


GREG MADDUX ATLANTA BASEBALL CLUB HELLZ YEAH
I HAVE THAT EXACT BRAVES HAT. GOT IT FOR 3 BUCKS AT WAL-MART. LOVE WEARING THE SAME EQUIPMENT AS THE PROS

THE BACKS ARE AS SPARSE AS THE FRONT DELIGHTFULLY MINIMALIST. PANINI CAN'T DESIGN A DECENT CARD WORTH SHIT ALWAYS HAVE A CLASSIC, DISTINCTIVE DESIGN THAT LET YOU KNOW IMMEDIATELY THAT THIS IS A PANINI PRODUCT. AT LEAST THEY DON'T CURL UP LIKE PRINGLES LIKE THAT TOPPS CRAP I JUST LOVE MODERN BASEBALL CARDS AND I HOPE ALL THIS POSITIVITY GETS ME SOME FREE STUFF OR AT LEAST SOME CASH HELPS TO GROW OUR AMAZING HOBBY

OH MY GOD A ROOKIE CARD. DOES CHROME STILL HAVE THOSE? ARE THERE ANY CHROME CARDS OTHER THAN THE AUTOGRAPHS? DO THEY EVEN COUNT AS CARDS IF THEY AREN'T GRADED BY PSA OR BECKETT? NORI AOKI IS BACK WITH THE YAKULT SWALLOWS WHICH IS THE SAME TEAM BOB HORNER PLAYED FOR SO THIS CARD IS AWESOME AND I'M KEEPING IT MUCH TO THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF ALL 47 BREWER COLLECTORS I KNOW


SO TOPPS IS PRINTING CARDS OF THIS GUY NOW. TOO BAD. WE NEED A LITTLE WEIRDNESS IN THE HOBBY. DUDE'S NOW A NATIONAL AS WELL SO NOTHING LASTS FOREVER


FAB FIVE FREDDY! THIS IS THE BEST PACK OF PRIZM EVER. SUCH A GLORIOUS MONOCHROMATIC PACK OF SILVERY GOODNESS.

WAIT, NO, I DIDN'T GET A SHINY REFRIZMPRACTOR. EVERYTHING SUCKS. LET'S GET TO THE GOOD STUFF


2009 TOPPS HERITAGE HIGH NUMBER SERIES BUYBACK PACK

I DON'T KNOW HOW I WAS ABLE TO AFFORD THIS IN 2009 [CENSORED] BUT I GOT MY HANDS ON IT SOMEHOW BECAUSE I LOVE THAT COLORFUL 1960 DESIGN. THE KIDS PROBABLY WENT WITHOUT FOOD FOR A COUPLE WEEKS BUT THEY SURVIVED. WHAT BEAUTIFUL HORIZONTAL GOODNESS MARRED BY SHINY FOIL WILL WE SEE OUT OF THIS LOVELY ILL GOTTEN PACK


VERTICAL COACHES, NOT HORIZONTAL PLAYER. YELLOW AND BLUE IS STILL COLORFUL THOUGH AND LOOK AT THAT MAJESTIC TIGER ROAR. THE FOIL LOGO IS NOT SLAPPED ON ANYONE'S FACE EITHER, A RARITY FOR TOPPS ON MULTI-PLAYER BUYBACK CARDS


HALL OF FAMER ON A BUYBACK CARD. LUKE ON A TIGERS CARD HAS GOTTA DRIVE WHITE SOX FANS A LITTLE NUTS. FERRICK WON A WORLD SERIES WITH THE YANKS AND HITCHCOCK WAS THE BRAVES MANAGER FOR A COUPLE YEARS. THIS CARD IS GREAT, I SHOULD PROBABLY PUT IT IN MY 1960 BINDER

ARGH I ALREADY HAVE IT

NOTTAFINGA

LAST PACK, I NEED A WIN HERE



KABAYA SUPER CAT NAMENNAYO

IF THIS AIN'T A WIN THEN NOTHING IS

GOT THIS PACK FROM FUJI IN SOME SORT OF CONTEST ABOUT 100 YEARS AGO. I DON'T THINK I WON THE CONTEST BUT I'M PRETTY SURE I WHINED ENOUGH TO GET THIS PACK ANYWAY. THAT SURE WAS A BIG RED FLAG ABOUT MY MENTAL STATE THAT EVERYONE IGNORED, NOW I'M SCREAMING ABOUT TRADING CARD PACKS. TOTALLY WORTH IT THOUGH LOOKIT THAT BIKER CAT ON THE WRAPPER SO CUTE OH MY GOD


I CAN'T READ ANY OF THIS BESIDES THE NUTRITION FACTS ABOUT THE SUPERFLUOUS STICK OF GUM ADDED TO THE PACK. NO IDEA WHEN THIS WAS MADE, WHO MADE IT, WHY DOES THIS EXIST, WHERE CAN I GET MORE, HOW CAN I RAISE MONEY TO BUY ALL OF THESE CARDS. I CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES THAT THESE CARDS ARE DRIVER'S LICENCES FOR CATS. I WONDER IF TOONCES IS A SUPER SHORT PRINT

LET'S LOOK AT THE CARD


OH MY GOD

AMERICA FUCK YEAH

THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLEST SHIT EVER

AAAAAAHHH

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I DIED. I AM NOW DEAD

RIP ME, DEAD OF CUTE

HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT, YELL AT ME IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU WANT ME TO DO MORE OF THIS STUPID SHIT IN 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAAAAAAAAAR EVERYBODY

ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CARDMAS

SPENT A HAPPY FESTIVUS AT A FAMILY GATHERING

TIME FOR THE AIRING OF GRIEVENCES

NO! TIME TO OPEN PACK(S)

ALL THE 11-CARD PACKS I FOUND WERE BORING AF SO YOU GET TWO TODAY


2002 DYNAMIC FORCES BATTLE OF THE PLANETS

HISTORY LESSON: SCIENCE NINJA TEAM GATCHAMAN IS AN ANIME AS OLD AS I AM. IT'S ABOUT FIVE FEISTY TEENS WHO COSPLAY AS BIRDS AND FLY AROUND IN A SPACESHIP THAT LITERALLY BURSTS INTO FLAMES WHEN AN EXTREMELY CAMP EVILDOER STARTS SOME SHIT

IN 1978 SANDY FRANK CHOPPED UP THE ORIGINAL SERIES, DUBBED IT INTO ENGLISH, ADDED AN R2D2 RIPOFF FOR SOME NEEDLESS COMEDY SEGMENTS AND SLAPPED IT INTO SYNDICATION. THIS IS THE VERSION I WATCHED ON TBS AND IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL CANON VERSION EVER AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED

IN 2002 TOP COW COMICS DID A TWELVE ISSUE RUN BASED ON THE SERIES PLUS SOME ONE-OFFS AND CROSSOVERS. IT'S THE COMIC THAT GOT ME BACK INTO READING NEW COMICS, AND AS A RESULT I HAVE A BIG PILE OF EARLY '00S ISSUES OF STUFF I NEVER WANT TO READ AGAIN. THE SERIES ENDED ON A CLIFFHANGER ON ISSUE 12 AND WAS CANCELLED DUE TO LOW SALES. BECAUSE OF COURSE IT WAS

THIS PACK OF CARDS CAME OUT ABOUT THE SAME TIME AS THE COMIC BUT SEEMS TO BE MORE ABOUT THE TV SHOW THAN THE COMIC ALTHOUGH COMIC ARTISTS ARE INVOLVED. I ONLY BOUGHT ONE PACK BECAUSE CHEAP AND I SEEM TO BE MISSING EXACTLY ONE ISSUE FROM THE COMPLETE COMIC RUN TOO AND I REGRET EVERYTHING


GREAT TO GET THE TITLE CARD IN THE FIRST PACK OPENED. LEFT TO RIGHT, THE CHARACTERS:

TINY - DRESSES AS AN OWL, PILOTS THE EXPLODEY SHIP. THE COOLEST OF THEM ALL AND THE ONE I PRETENDED I WAS WHEN I PLAYED G-FORCE AT RECESS. I STILL WANT A NUMBER 5 T-SHIRT

PRINCESS - DRESSES AS A SWAN, THE GIRL. BEST BIRD NINJA WHO ISN'T A PILOT, HAS A BAD ASS MOTORCYCLE

MARK - DRESSES AS AN EAGLE? FALCON MAYBE, THE LEADER. DAD LEFT FOR SPACE SMOKES AND NEVER CAME BACK AND NOW HE'S ANGSTY

JASON - DRESSES AS WHICHEVER BIRD OF PREY MARK ISN'T, THE BAD BOY. TROUBLEMAKER, RACES AROUND IN A FAST CAR AND REBELS AGAINST THE MAN

KEYOP - DRESSES AS SOME TINY BIRD I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH ALL THE BIRDS, THE SNEAKY LITTLE BROTHER. HAD A FUCKED UP VOICE AND MIGHT BE AN ALIEN OR ANDROID

ZOLTAR - THE ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS EVIL LEADER OF SPECTRA WHO SIMULTANEOUSLY FASCINATED ME AND SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME WHEN I WAS A KID. HAS A HOT SISTER

WHAT IN SAM HELL IS THAT DRAWING OF PRINCESS ON THE BACK. LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING THAT JUST GOT BANNED FROM TUMBLR


SPACE TERRAPIN! THE EVIL MONSTER ROBOT FROM THE FIRST EPISODE. I REMEMBER WATCHING THIS AND SEEING THE MONSTER FUCK UP A SHIP AND THERE WAS A SCENE WHERE THE PASSENGERS WERE IN THE OCEAN SCREAMING AND THERE WAS THIS BABY SPLASHING AROUND SEEMINGLY PERPLEXED BY THESE EVENTS AND MY THOUGHTS WERE HOLY SHIT THIS SHOW JUST DROWNED A BABY. JAPANESE CARTOONS WERE FUCKING HARD CORE


STEALTH CASEY KASEM CARD. THIS CARD MADE ME LOOK UP THE VOICE ACTORS AND HOLY FUCKING SHIT KEYOP WAS VOICED BY ALAN YOUNG. NOW I'M EVEN MORE PISSED BY THE SUBSEQUENT RE-DUBBING THAT HAD KEYOP SPEAKING WITHOUT THE STUTTER. THEY CHANGED ALL THE NAMES TOO, WHAT THE ASS


MORE MARK AND HIS TRAGIC BACKSTORY. DEADBEAT DAD COLONEL CRONUS IS A JERK


WHIRLWIND PYRAMID IS BOTH LUDICROUS AND AWESOME. JUMP UP ON EACH OTHER'S SHOULDERS LIKE A CHEERLEADER SQUAD AND THEN SPIN AROUND AND KICK PEOPLE'S ASSES. HOW DOES PHYSICS EVEN WORK


FRICKIN' MARK HOT PACK. ARE TINY AND PRINCESS EVEN IN THIS SET. TURNS OUT HE IS AN EAGLE ALTHOUGH I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS KEN CHARACTER


BAD GUYS! AT LEAST TINY AND PRINCESS GOT A COUPLE CAMEOS IN THE MARK PACK. IT AMUSES ME THAT THE HENCHMEN OF THE SERIES ARE ALL DRESSED AS BLUE-GREEN KITTYCATS WITH MULLETS

I NEED A SET OF THIS. SHOULDA BOUGHT MORE NON-SPORTS INSTEAD OF ODDBALL FLEER AND DONRUSS ONE-OFF SETS IN THE EARLY 00S. WILL TRADE PATCHWORKS AND THROWBACK THREADS FOR KEYOPS

TIME TO SHIFT GEARS


2017 DONRUSS DOLLAR TREE FUN SIZE PACK

KYLE SCHWARBER, PACK COVER BOY. THIS WAS A FATHER'S DAY GIFT IF I AM NOT MISTAKEN


THE 1990 DONRUSS SET COULD HAVE LOOKED GOOD.
IT COULD HAVE LOOOKED GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD I SHOUT TO THE HEAVENS

GOD DOES NOT LISTEN


THE DONRUSS DESIGNS THUS FAR HAVE BEEN AN ODD MASH OF 80S DESIGNS REMIXED TO LOOK LIKE 80S DESIGNS CREATED BY SOMEONE WHOSE DAD WAS BORN IN THE 80S. IT'S KIND OF THE VAPORWAVE OF CARD DESIGN, NOSTALGIC BUT SURREAL


FAB FIVE FREDDIE ON AN '83 DESIGN. EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL


AND THE BACK

EVERYTHING IS AWFUL


IS IT REALLY A MAX SCHERZER CARD IF ONLY ONE EYE IS VISIBLE. I FEEL CHEATED SOMEHOW







ALMOST DONE, ONE MORE OF THESE MY PLUMBERS SMOKIN' DAT HERB
