Favorite Card of 2017

P-Town Tom is doing a neat thing over at Waitin' Til Next Year that most I wanted to take part in, your favorite card of 2017. It took some thought, but I came up with it, it was the obvious choice, not really a close second even. 2017 Topps High Number Heritage Andrew Albers. Not a team I collect, or a set for that matter, one of the very few Saskatchewan MLB players, and the only one born in the same town that I was.

Black Friday Box 2: 2015 Revolution

The box I was really going after on black friday, 2015 Panini Revolution. These are super shiny foily cards, something Panini has really been moving towards and making some nice looking sets, albeit maybe a little over the top.

Black Friday Box 1: 2015 Clear Vision

I don't usually do the Black Friday thing other scouring COMC for sales and buying the christmas gifts that I has saved in my amazon cart. This year I had some extra paypal funds from selling my video game collection, so I decided to try blowouts black friday thing. It was honestly kind of frustrating and I missed out on some stuff I had my eye on with the whole rotating in-stock out of stock thing they do. I did end up with 4 box, the Revolution being my main goal, the extra being Clear Vision.

Tradin With Canadians Pt 2

The second of two packages from friends in the Great White North. Coming from Sportscards From The Dollar Store, one of the more prolific package senders around. After my King-less packs of Hoops these are much appreciated, especially the Frank Mason III card, I am still a little leary of "The 3rds" one teams I like, but this guy seems pretty good so far.

Tradin With Canadians Pt 1

Part 1 of 2 featuring trading with fellow Canadians, starting with andyroy3 from TCDB. The highlight being a new acetate Dante Bichette from Collector's Choice Crash the Game. I was a big Dante fan, but he was not made for close-ups.

My First Pack Pulled NBA Auto

As usual, my rare LCS trip for supplies and my feeling of obligation to buy some packs there. I was hoping for some new NBA Prizm, nope. Rookies & Stars Football? Nope. Panini Playoff Football? No 2017, but there were packs of 2016 left. I didn't even look at the baseball, between the usual poor selection and my lack of interest in most things Topps is wasn't worth a look. 2017 Hoops was the best pick, it was newish and with lots of Kings rookies, worth a shot.
