Well, one way that helps be get through...looking at some new sports cards every day!
Down side - just one...up side - keeps moving the 1991-92 Pro Set Platinum set. The bonus - Joel Otto always reminded me of Otto the bus driver on The Simpsons. I can't believe how long running that show has been, though I watched plenty in the 90s and early 00s, I feel out of regularly watching in university and never got back to it.
First Edition - I have just seen a couple of these cards from Upper Deck basketball though Topps, Fleer and Upper Deck produced sets at one time or another. I don't mind the design, and I can appreciate the simplicity of the gold parallel set. The string of 2007 Topps All Pro players isn't too shabby either.
Troy's card would have been much better without a helmet, and with a bit of wind in his hair, but again, I digress.
