A bit of everything

So the way the box of cards were packaged, penny sleeves were used and cards were doubled up in most sleeves. Was there any rhyme or reason to what cards were together? Absolutely not.

Does make it more fun popping around and getting a bot of everything with the cards each day as I go through them.

Today, the first taste...

As I say, a nice assortment. Here are a couple "first cards" from some sets for me. Larry Murphy here is the first Donruss Elite Leaf card for my collection. Same is true about the Impact SkyBox Kirk Muller.

This is a good sign - a number of new to me Leafs as well as some dupes that are still awesome adds.

Today's newer cards include some 2018-19 Upper Deck MVP base card dupes, as well as a new addition from 2015-16 Upper Deck Portfolio with the horizontal design of Morgan Rielly.

A nice start, but some tomorrow!


  1. I was obsessed with the 95/96 Donruss Elite set back in the day. Collecting as many of the diecut and non-diecut parallels that I could get my hands on. Haven't given these much thought in recent years... maybe I'll dig up some of the ones I kept and write a post.

    1. I'd be interested in seeing that - I have only seen a couple of the base cards in hand as I was out of the hobby at the time, and not many have made it my way.
