2018 Card of the Day

by Billy Kingsley - 171 cards (Last updated on Jun. 21, 2018)


1. 2017-18 Panini Prizm - Prizms Green #95 Wesley Matthews


June 21st, from a repack, opened on the night of the NBA draft. I bought the repack specifically because this Green Prizm was visible on the outside.

2. 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum #41 Chris Kreider


June 20th, opened during the NHL Awards show. Purely luck of the draw that I got a Rangers card! Although my favorite team will not be winning any awards my first full season, it's nice to get one on the official end of the season day.

3. 2017-18 Panini Contenders #87 Draymond Green


June 19th, from what will probably be the only pack of this set I ever do. My local Target did not bother to bring it in, and by time I got to the Target in Wilton, NY, where I got all the sets my local store didn't bother to stock, they only had this one single pack left. Draymond is probably my favorite currently active player so no complaints here! In fact, the pack yielded 3 of my 5 favorite active players, also giving me Steph Curry and Brook Lopez.

4. 2013-14 Panini Titanium - New Wave Signatures #43 Robbie Hummel


June 18th, from my COMC box. My first card of him.

5. 2017-18 Panini Threads #43 Bradley Beal


June 17th. My health problems really acted up this day and I was mostly confined to my bed. Luckily, I had this pack from the set that was my first and will probably be only one purchased, so I knew it would be new. The standard size pack from the same retail box that gave me the Vonleh a few days ago.

6. 2017-18 Panini Prestige #75 Bismack Biyombo


June 16th, from a single pack I purchased at the local Dollar store.

Note: The card for June 15th does not have a checklist posted yet. Will be edited in at some point in the future.

7. 2017-18 Panini Threads - Box Topper Memorabilia #BTM-NVL Noah Vonleh


June 14th, from a retail box...not really a blaster I guess. Now the largest card in the project at 5x7.

8. 2018 Donruss #31 Jamie McMurray


June 13th, from a blaster.

9. 2017-18 Upper Deck #380 Craig Anderson


June 12th, from a hobby box that I bought.

10. 2013 Panini Beach Boys #36 Brian Wilson


June 11th, from the box I got from Dave & Adam's.

Great start to the project with a serial numbered card!

Yeah that was a nice bonus...but not too surprising considering my COMC habits, lol

Man I wish Fleer still made NBA cards.  Flair cards are awesome.

Thanks Kirk!

Me too Shannon. They were my favorite company for the NBA. They still owed me three redemptions when they went under, too!

Man I wish Star still made V I Model Search cards.  What is V I anyway?

Based on the copyright on the back it appears to be Venus Swimwear International, with VI standing for Venus International. Yes, I actually read the back!

Very cool project to undertake for the year.

Shouldn't #27 say "January 27th"?

I don't know what you are talking about ;)

Glad you finally got your David Robinson Electric Court!  I was looking for it online for you one day, and I remember I ended up seeing two different David Robinsons in that Electric Court checklist and I wasn't sure which one it was you needed.  I am pretty sure that after I confirmed it with you, the card I was looking at online was no longer available.

Good move switching to reverse order, Billy.

I was hoping it would make the sample image on the main page change every day, but no such luck.

Thanks Shannon, for a one-per-pack card I don't know why it proved to be so elusive!

That Celtic card is epic!

The Sample card for lists is always the #1 card. You'll have to leave the List Settings for Display as "Ascending" and resort the cards so the newest card is card #1.

I'll try it for now...not sure if I am going to want to put in that effort for the entire year, or will have the time all the time.

Chad- thanks! it has a great photo of two of the all-time greatest...and one I had never seen before.

Right now you only have 40 cards to sort into order.  After they're sorted it's only a matter of sorting (moving) one card each day.

February 11th card. Look at Dryden's mask and equipment compared to today's. He and goalies of his era and older must look at today's goalies and just mutter "Wimps."

Good add with the Edwards, one of my favorites

I didn't know you were a NASCAR fan Ian, cool!

Not as much as I used to be, but yeah. Becoming a Bubba fan.

Cool! He's one of my favorites already.

Re: May 1st - Upper Deck Overtime packs are supposed to be an in-store giveaway, like Upper Deck Winter, National Hockey Card Day, Panini Player of the Day, Panini Boxing Day, etc. But like many of the others a large number of the packs always seem to get opened by retailers and sold as singles.

Interesting, thank you. I don't think my local shop participates.

For May 19th, I think you've missed the bus with 2018 Donruss Racing. If they aren't there already, they aren't going to be there soon. Maybe next year, when the mark-downs show up on shelves. But the 'Dinger MEM isn't a bad card. I also pulled one of those from a blaster of 2017 Absolute. Mine had a small part of the Monster Energy logo on the sheet metal. Just be glad it isn't a plain one-color metal! Looks to me like it's easier to pull multi-color MEM's from retail than it is from hobby with Panini Racing cards.

I have an order in for 2 hobby boxes of the new 2018 Victory Lane cards. I hope it ends up being worth the money!

I think you are right. My local Target has only brought in two new sets since Christmas, 2018 Topps Baseball and 2017-18 Donruss Optic, which had a Target exclusive. This is bad for me since it's where I get most of my new cards.

The legend, Randy Couture. He sounded the rally siren for Vegas last night before the game, nearly ripped it off the podium.

I didn't recognize who he was, and didn't have the sound up loud enough to hear it... thanks!

One of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. Former heavyweight champion of the world. 

On to today’s card, I’ve got a ton of these for trade, if you want any, haha. Or any LCS would give em to you beyond price, almost free (Rush pun opportunity, sorry.)

Looks like my bad pun totally killed off the comments, haha. Sorry Billy!

LOL! Well, I did have the list closed off for almost 2 weeks as I was not able to get the scans made that were needed, too...
