Writing a post in five minutes is the latest thing with all the cool kids, so I’m going to sprint through some cards I got from a nickel box at the last show I went to.
OK, here we go…
“Combo” Heritage card of David Wright and Ryan Howard. Something about this makes me think that maybe, just maybe, they weren’t posing at the same time.
I have to admit, I’m relieved that Topps did not repeat this “MLB Wacky Packages” experiment. The whole concept suffers when the packages are not real and the jokes are not wacky.
This is the flip side of the sticker above… Would I need to collect the entire puzzle to get a Mets team set? Technically, yes. In reality… No freakin’ way.
Danica McKellar!!!!! Winnie Cooper!!!!! Yay!!!!!
A 3-D card for a nickel? Hell yeah. I miss these being in Opening Day, but I guess the expense was too much for a low-end product.
Speaking of Opening Day, TC Bear wants YOU! Please don’t ask what TC Bear wants you for… (And forgive the poor scanning that chopped off the corners).
Last year’s Stadium Club MLS. I bought a bunch of packs of these just because, and I still don’t know what I’m doing with them. I haven’t seen any this year… which is just as well. BTW, I don’t know who Clint Irwin is (besides the obvious stuff listed on the card).
Rushing through this post reminds me of Steve Martin’s routine about Vegas acts (And side note about Johnny Carson’s jacket: O! M! G!!!!)
