I don't care what my teachers say...

I'll give you a minute to think about the reference in the title...as it works out, it actually references two cards in today's Santa Lot 20, and given how odd these cards are, definitely had to put them in the highlights today. Part of the reason I got the Santa Lot to begin with was for the off and unusual that I may find in the cards, even if they may not be something I collect, they would something that would entertain.


..I want to be a supermodel" is how the line of the song ends. Appropriate for the card above. This is one of a handful of cards in this basketball Bazooka set which are for non-basketball people, such as Jay-Z and Christie as shown here. Now, the song itself comes from a movie you probably know, whether you like it or hate it...Clueless. As for clueless, I am completely Clueless as it comes to this next card...

I had no clue what this card was from, and honestly, I still don't fully know. The best I can manage is that it came out of cards that were inserted, likely 9 to a page, which came in the Guinness Book of Records hardcover books in 2006-2007 or such period. If anyone has any additional information on it, please let me know. Definitely an interesting card though.

The last, and more obvious highlight - late 90s Maple Leaf.

The rest

The more I am seeing these 2005 Leaf Certified Materials cards, the more I like them. We will see if that trend continues...


I love the name Mookie. Blaylock is a good one, but personally I have to go with Wilson as my fave.

  1. I think someone on TCDB was asking about Guinness cards a while back. Was that you who posed the topic?

    1. Yeah - trying to get an idea ahead of posting about it.
