Highlighting with a dino

First, I did something painful, but at the same time, a good thing to do. I packed up about 1,500 cards, most of which I got from my sister which are junk era and not great condition, and donated them away. The condition isn't good enough that I would want to trade them away, but good enough I don't want to just throw them away, so donating works. Doesn't matter what cause you can find to donate to, if they will take cards and be able to benefit a good cause, works for me. Also, it creates a bit of space in the basement. I am not counting these in my goal this year of getting 5,000 cards traded away though - not that I consider it cheating, but this was something I had been thinking of doing since last year, just was finding it hard to get rid of them.



Remember when Pro Set Platinum did their impression of Stadium Club with the full bleed photos? Still would be nice for the name on the front, but otherwise was nice and different back in 1991-92.

So, I decided to take a look at Dino Ciccarelli's stats which made me feel old when I saw his last season was before 2000. I remember him well enough I figured into the mid 00s, but apparently not.

The rest


Well, 2007-08 Topps is down to 8 base cards being MIA as these knocked another off the list. If you are interested, the add was Jianlian which is the interesting draft day card photo.
