2018 Card of the Day

by Billy Kingsley - 109 cards (Last updated on Apr. 19, 2018)

1. 1990-91 O-Pee-Chee #157 Tony Tanti

April 19th, from a pack from the box sent to me by SumoMenkoMan.

2. 1991 Wild Card #88 Rodney Peete

April 18th, a Database member who asked to remain nameless sent this to me back in 2015...and I've been holding it for this project ever since!

3. 2009-10 Upper Deck Champ's #79 Shane Doan

April 17th from a pack from my stash, Unfortunately the all the cards in the pack were damaged by pack-searchers bending them.

4. 2010-11 Panini Adrenalyn XL #271 Chris Bosh

April 16th, from my pack stash. Until 2016 or 2017 (I forget exactly when) I did not consider these game cards as part of my collection, but changed my mind and added them to my collection proper at the same time I added Panini Stickers and the International editions of Upper Deck sets to my collection. This pack came from a repack probably in 2012 or 2013 and I forgot about until I ran across it cleaning a few days ago.

5. 2010-11 Panini Rookies & Stars - Gold #107 Rod Hundley

April 15th, from my COMC box. Mine is SN 461/499

6. 1990-91 Bowman #199 Mark Messier

April 14th, a gift from Mark Zentkovich. Thanks Mark!

7. 1938 Church & Dwight Useful Birds of America Tenth Series (J9-6) #1 Meadowlark

April 13th, a gift from Database member Chad Nagel, thanks Chad!

Note: I have not listed this card as part of my collection, because there are multiple variations crammed into the same checklist. Eventually the set will be listed properly and at that time I will mark the version I have as part of my collection.

8. 2017 Donruss - Green Foil #17 Jamie McMurray

April 12th, from a pack my Mom got at Target

9. 2017-18 Donruss Optic - Rated Rookie Shock #176 Ike Anigbogu

April 11th...my first card of the player and the set! This rookie-only parallel is Target exclusive.

10. 2016 Leaf Babe Ruth Collection - Career Achivements #CA-02 Babe Ruth

April 10th, from my stash of cards. Pretty sure this pack came from Angus.

Today is the 100th day of the year.

Not only is this my first card from the set, it's also my first card of Babe Ruth.

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

Jan. 3, 2018 - 8:39AM

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!

Jan. 7, 2018 - 11:20PM

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

ahh, love to see some NASCAR talk! kinda hard finsing a place online to talk it.
