(Happy Halloween, kiddies. Welcome to the day that I call "just another work night." Instead of handing out candy to children both cute and rude or hitting the party circuit, I'll be toiling under artificial light at my usual post. Have a Reese's on me. This is Cardboard Appreciation, the 191st in a series):
Don't you just hate those collectors who seem to have a card for every occasion? "Oh, it's 'Arbor Day,' here's my card of a ballplayer climbing a tree! Hey, it's April Fool's Day, here are all my Milton Bradley cards!"
I admit, I try to be that collector, periodically. But it's only periodic because most of the time I can't find an appropriate card or cards. I just don't have that varied of a collection. I also didn't collect much in the 1990s, which is a definite drawback when trying to match a card with any occasion. Trust me.
But every once in awhile, my love for Wacky Packages pays off.
This one is fantastic. It's a tribute to the very year that I collected Wacky Packages, in 1975. Topps reprinted a whole bunch of old WP stickers from '75 and various other years.
I really wish I kept all the Wacky Packs I bought in '75. I might try to re-acquire those. ... right after I finish like 7 other baseball sets.
OK, back to work.
Don't eat all your kids' candy.
