Someone else's card show finds (mine are coming tomorrow)
Today was card show day. Since I'm writing this in advance, I am trusting that it went well. By the time this posts, I will know whether it did or not. You, however, will wait until tomorrow to make your judgment. I plan to post my show goodies then.
Today, you get to see someone else's card show goodies. They are now my goodies because they were sent to me. And that's quite some organization on the part of Cards on Cards.
Kerry sent a smattering of Dodgers, including several cards that I never see around here.
Museum Collection for instance. Not once have I obtained a Museum Collection card on my own. If I didn't run a blog, I probably wouldn't even know Museum Collection existed.
Another unnecessarily thick card. This is from 2015 Tribute. Yasiel Puig is playing in front of a marble wall. I've always wanted to know what it was like to play baseball inside a mausoleum.
Panini products. Shiny and pseudo artsy. If these products appeared on store shelves near me I missed it.
Two cards on the opposite ends of the spectrum: one you could rip out of a magazine, the other could be used to spark a small grass fire if the sun hits it just right.
Finally, I received a full Police set of one of the worst Dodger teams to ever play an entire season. L.A. was celebrating its 30th anniversary at Dodger Stadium in 1992 and decided to commemorate it with a last-place stinker of a season.
All of these guys were on that team and somehow they still finished 63-99 for the worst record in baseball.
I'm sorry to end this post on such a downer, but don't worry: I went to a card show! Lots of happiness ahead!
