I am going to go out on a limb and say that over the next week, as I go through a bunch of 1992-93 Upper Deck hockey cards, that I am going to have a completed set when this is done. As it stands, I have about 230 cards from the set. It looks just about right for a set in the box, and I know there are hologram variations again (card 1-440) on this set, but let's see how it start with the first 100 cards of the 640 card set.

I always like seeing new sets show up when going through card lots, and today we get a cool one.
Great way to end the day.

Sometimes when pulling through an assorted lot of cards, you don't get too much. That's where we are at today. Just a single card I am keeping in the bunch - at this point.
Wasn't the only card from the set either today, just the only one I needed.

I was always a Star Trek fan. I have grown to enjoy Star Wars as well, and the two can co-exist in fandom, but Star Trek was my first interest.
I remember as a kid of 8-9 years old, Saturday mornings at my grandparents while my mom and grandmother went out shopping, one of the shows on I'd watch was the original Star Trek series in reruns. About the same time, Next Generation was in the first couple seasons, but I didn't get to start watching it until the early 90s, shortly after I then watched all of Deep Space Nine and Voyager.
Anyway, my point is, whether I get a set to keep or just ditch these cards, really cool to take a look at them.
As for the rest, some damager Pinnacle hockey still...

I have no idea if this is going to impact Canada - but I am sure many of you have heard that Walmart and Target in the US are not selling some sports or trading game cards (originally I thought it was all, but appears only certain ones) until further notice. I fully appreciate the reason given - safety of their staff and patrons - but still surprising it has come to this.
No idea how this will play out long term - if it will go back to normal at some point assuming the current boom goes away, or it may help the boom go away, but no real impact for myself as the cards I really want, I get from 401games for Magic and for sports cards, since I don't have a big interest on current, I get through lots like the one I am still working through now!
Yup - now sitting at 8,000 cards in on the "20 in 20" lot which I have been going through in '21. I call it the 20 in 20 because I expected it was about 20k cards and I picked it up late in 2020, but that mark may be on the conservative side...only time will tell.
Today's cards which get us to that 8k number are really a bit of everything, which is always cool.
The cards that survived...

So, I am going to fast forward through one other part of this lot as there was another sizeable amount )let's say 300 cards or so) of a set I have covered before and have no interest to collect...
1991 Upper Deck Football.
Just not any keepers for me...
