American Pie

I am all for Canadiana or Americana - obviously depending on in which you live, one would mean more than the other. I don't collect sets centered around the topics, but they are very interesting to look at and remember the topics they cover.

Today, we touch on a few cards out of the 2011 Topps American Pie set...

Tracy and Grant were before my time, but even so, I do know the names and their importance. The Y2K dud, I lived through and remember the scare as everyone wasn't sure exactly what would happen with technology when the year 2000 hit and how the systems as a whole around the world would react. End result, not much of anything changed at all, except maybe a couple clocks showing the year 1900 instead of 2000.

I was a bit late to Facebook for someone that was around when it really started up, but I did get around to it nonetheless, and like most of the people who did at the time, I am still on it, but not overly active.

There were some other cards for trade in the pack as well...

A shame there were so many dupes in the 2012-13 Upper Deck hockey set as I was hoping there would be more to add. Was one keeper from the set though...

Ah, there we go, another one of those "great" drawing cards out of TNA. Well, may be a little more effort into this one than the last.


  1. I half-seriously aspire to be one of the last humans to never be on Facebook.

  2. I really should go out and track down one of those 2011 Topps American Pie sets. I'd love to just sit down and read each card back.
