So in our lockdown mode we've happily been looking at your blogs, checking eBay and Blowout, and assessing what needs to happen up in our cardboard. Yesterday we ordered a nice bunch of autographed Old Judge cards so at least we'll have something to trade when that need arises.
The card atop this post is from a Peanuts set Lucy has from the '90s.[ Isn't it strange that "1991" = twenty years ago??] Woodstock helps depicts our slightly overwhelmed card feeling that is causing our hat to fly off.
One question: did anyone like the black background cards from Topps? We found a complete set of those that we got on eBay last year. Will Topps do this again?
Why oh why do we succumb to gimmicks? Aw heck, we make the following confession: we like these; we like multi-colored game-used jersey cards; and we like autographs. Why not just admit it? The only thing that saves us from being completely shallow is that we also like vintage--the more dinged the better.
To make us feel better, and perhaps make us feel warmer, would you please confess that you kind of like regular cards, but bells and whistles make you happier? If what you do is try to complete sets and all that kind of intellectual pursuit, then keep your fancypants inclinations to yourself. This means you, Dr. dayf and your kind, although we will accept secret side enthusiasms if you care to share them.
