Scratch The Itch

 So today is a whole bunch of football - so I am not going to focus on those and just show them, but more so talk about the last cards.

I know scratch items like these weren't new even back then. First ones I ever got were the discount cards out of 1990 Pro Set hockey, even those weren't the first of course, but the first I ever had in hand.

So, the prize for these - a chance to meet Dan Marino! There were some other collect to win prizes which are detailed on the back, but come on - take your chance to win one of the three grand prizes - open to the US and Canada (except Quebec and Puerto Rico). The value of the prize is apparently about $10k US.

I am probably a bit late in completing these, but they are still collectible if anyone is interested. The interesting fact to me - based on the numbering on the back...there are 90 of these! 90 different questions. Good for them for going all out instead of just having a handful of questions repeated.

Wonder if anyone is collecting them as a set...

Let's end with a quick PWE trade I received from TCDB member Double B who reached out to me. Honestly, this time of year, it is those who reach out only - I just don't have time to search out trades. Heck, I have a couple pay it forward envelopes I received that I'd love to send something back in return, but it will probably wait until May as work is so busy, and I feel bad over those delays.

Anyway...Double B's envelope...

I have a couple of the 1992-93 Panini stickers, but here I get huge help for the team set. All names I know well between Hockey Night In Canada and Super Nintendo video games. I like the stats on the stickers, though up the side isn't as good as across the bottom.

Really appreciate the offer and the cards Double B!

  1. That Upper Deck always looks good. Pro Bowl game photos are always good. Michael Haynes was always a favorite of mine. While I'm a bigger fan of the classic Leafs uni but I do like the one worn on the Pearson and Buamgartner cards.
