The Card: Not my favorite design of the 70s, but it is always interesting to see how these vintage designs work with modern expansion teams. This one is borrowed from the 2013 Topps Archives set which saved starting the design from scratch as the team font looks pretty daunting.
The Project: The Project: Rockies Legacy Collection custom project to make digital cards of Rockies players who never had one issued.

It hard to believe it's almost 10 year since the Bruins last won the cup, and just as hard to believe that I haven;t picked up more of these cards. This recent lot of 2 brings me up to an unimpressive 4. Gregory Campbell was one of those players that don't show up on the statsheet, but was huge in the Bruins Playoff runs, most famously breaking his leg blocking a shot, then finishing the penalty kill against the Penguins in 2013.

I passed on buying a couple boxes of Panini Revolution and instead just bough the two autographs I really wanted, along with the Bogdanovic I found for cheap as a pending redemption. It's so nice to see Jason Williams on-card autos with the Kings in modern products and having one in Revolution, my favorite NBA product is about as good as it gets.

There were some things sitting in my account that I really wanted in hand (the previously posted Sammy Baugh coming through the mailbox program being the main one) that led to requesting a shipment without a ton of items. Starting off with some shiny gold, inspired by this post on The Collector blog I picked up some gold 2002 Pristine and wow, they are nice. More modern, but just as nice is the Gold Trevor Story from 2017 Stadium Club.

First off, thanks for all the Congratulations on the previous post. Secondly, back to the cardboard and a pretty huge addition to the Redskins collection. An on-card signature of Sammy Baugh, Hall of Famer and pretty much the first NFL superstar with the Redskins from 1937-1952 winning two NFL Championships, 6x 1st Team All-Pro, 2x 2nd Team All-Pro, 2x NFL Player of the Year and was the career leader in Passing yards and Passing Touchdowns when he retired.

Collecting has really fallen to the back-burner due to a number of things, post-xmas recovery, a serious cold streak and other family dealings, so that is why it took until February to have an actual trade post. Starting off with two former Rockies from 2017 Stadium Club, the Lucroy is just a beautiful shot while the Pomeranz is an addition to the "why do I still collect this guy" PC.
