For many years I’ve had a lingering sense of shame about a gaping hole in my collection… A trio of cards that any collector from the 1980’s should have, and yet I did not.
I lived in disgrace for years, hiding my secret from other collectors for fear of being mocked, ridiculed, outcast.
But just like Marty McFly in “Back To The Future”, it took just one word to spur me into action…
…More specifically, San Diego Chicken.
I’ve always wanted these cards of The Chicken, but I never had any of them. This was despite the fact that I bought a lot of 1982 Donruss…
…and I bought some 1983 Donruss…
…and in 1984… well… I think I bought a pack. Maybe two.
It doesn’t matter. My lack of Chicken cards has been a tiny little grain of sand in my shorts for the past 30 years… but I finally broke down and bought all three from COMC.
Houston, The Chicken has landed.
We all have our “white whales”, but does anybody else have cards that they’d been meaning to get for years, but just never quite got around to?
