Stay In School!

I've been having a couple issues with blogger lately...and with my own scheduling. I try to keep a few post ahead, but sometimes blogger scheduling gives me some problems. Bottom line, oops, I had a post go up too early last night...but problem fixed. If you didn't notice - perfect! If you did, keen eye. Regardless, consider it an early preview. As life can just come up at times, I like making sure the blog is good to go.

Well, not the way I wanted to mark one year down, bu oh well! With that behind us, on with year two, and at least the traders bring along something new.


A good turn out today in the Santa Lot 20 with two nice McDonald set cards. The nice motion Koivu card is pretty darn good - it may not be high tech, but appreciate it just the same.

The rest

Joe Girardi - decent as a player and doing alright now as a manager. I like the mid swing Schofield though the bottom looks very slightly damaged.


Interesting that this is what I have most to say about today. Two items here..first...stay in school. Cute message which was the thing to do in the early 90s so fit right here in 1991 Upper Deck. I wonder how successful a campaign this ended up being - when it really started or ended, but it was all the rage. Maybe it still is and being older now I just don't notice these things...

Second - that is a fine looking Kobe Bryant card. It is much better in hand than scanned, and I have never seen any of the Brilliant set cards before - definitely a two thumbs up front design. Also, as I say, any new set is a good set here!

  1. Careful with that Brilliants card- they get sticky. And greasy. and if you try to get the dust off them that invariably sticks to them, the coating chips off.

    1. Noted - and for such a pretty card - a bit of special treatment until I find it another home isn't a bad idea.
