2018 Card of the Day

by Billy Kingsley - 78 cards (Last updated on Mar. 20, 2018)

1. 2014-15 Panini Prizm #227 David Robinson

March 19th, another one from the box from Jon. The teal card does not have the pink and green stripes, whoever scanned it (I didn't bother to look), their scanner has damage/overuse issues. I dropped one of mine once and it put a green line on everything after that. I still have it but it's a pain to use now, however, it can do neons so I keep it around. The scanners will also develop lines when they get older in terms of usage. The one I bought in 2016 is starting to show signs of that, unfortunately.

2. 2017-18 Hoops #192 Kawhi Leonard

March 18th, from the same pack that the Bam Adebayo card came from previously.

3. 1995 Ultra X-Men #117 Shatterstar

March 17th, a trade with Shawn Norris.

4. 2017-18 Upper Deck #406 Vladimir Tarasenko

March 16th, my first card from Series 2, from a fatpack I bought at my local TRU.

5. 2011-12 Upper Deck #421 Jiri Tlusty

March 15th, from a blaster I found at my local TRU. Opened it up in commemoration of the loss of the TRU brand.

6. 2014 Panini Golden Age #143 George Gervin

March 14th, from the box from Jon @ A Penny Sleeve for Your Thoughts

7. 2000 ArtBox Simpsons FilmCardz #30 Dr. Hibbert

March 13th, from a pack from the box I bought.

8. 2009 Press Pass Stealth #10 Carl Edwards

March 12th, from a pack out of my stash. Turned out to be the only one in the pack I needed.

9. 1999-00 Upper Deck HoloGrFX - AUSome #61 AU Elton Brand

March 11th, Elton's birthday. When I had my mom go through the COMC box to pick a card for her birthday a couple days ago, I had her pick an Elton out as well, which was this one.

10. 2017-18 Panini Status #100 Pau Gasol

March 10th...our local Target didn't bother to bring these in, but the local Toys R Us did, go figure. I took a trip there for one last trip down memory lane and ended up with a whole bunch of cards.

This set is kind of unique- there aren't many sets with pink and purple pastels. This scan is washed out, but it's also got a lot of holofoil on it. I can't say I really like the set design but it has photos...kind of...from this season, the first set to do so. I bought two 20 card fatpacks and I don't know if I will bother to get any more.

Great start to the project with a serial numbered card!

Billy Kingsley

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

Cool Project Billy.

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.

Jan. 28, 2018 - 8:38AM

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!

Feb. 7, 2018 - 2:52PM

That Celtic card is epic!

Feb. 9, 2018 - 9:37PM

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.

Feb. 11, 2018 - 11:20PM

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."

Mar. 13, 2018 - 12:18PM

Good add with the Edwards, one of my favorites

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

Mar. 16, 2018 - 9:26AM

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

Mar. 16, 2018 - 7:25PM
Billy Kingsley

Cool! He's one of my favorites already.

Mar. 19, 2018 - 4:19PM
