Let it go...except the new completed insert set...

Another great little pickup out of the Thanksgiving cards I got - the 1990 Topps Glossy All Stars set - all 22 cards. I actually didn't have any of them from this set, so a nice quick pickup, and here they are...

The backs of a couple are a bit dirty, but good enough for considering the set done.

For today's Santa Lot...


Yeah, having a four year old daughter, there are certain words and names that I now, and will always now, associate with "that movie". Honestly, she has seen Frozen a handful of times, but she loves the toys and all the related stuff (books, CDs, etc) that are out with Anna and Elsa and of course, Olaf.

Before the movie - this was the Olaf I would always think about, but not any more.

The rest

A bit disappointed in only getting one new for me 1991-92 Pro Set Platinum card given the traders below...


A whole bunch of 1991-92 Pro Set Platinum....and just a single card to add to the collection, squeaking up to 197 of 300 now.

  1. The glossy All-Stars were among my favorites insert sets growing up. I wish MLB still had designated legendary "Team Captains" for the All-Star game.

    1. I only saw a few of them when growing up, but now looking back, I do really like them too - very solid cards and designs, with great players.
