Great start to the project with a serial numbered card!

Jan. 2, 2018 - 4:36PM
Billy Kingsley

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.

Billy Kingsley

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!

Jan. 25, 2018 - 11:44AM

Very cool project to undertake for the year.

Jan. 28, 2018 - 8:38AM

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

Jan. 28, 2018 - 3:19PM
Billy Kingsley

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

Jan. 29, 2018 - 9:46AM

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.  

Jan. 29, 2018 - 5:41PM

Good move switching to reverse order, Billy.

Jan. 29, 2018 - 5:48PM
Billy Kingsley

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

Jan. 29, 2018 - 6:04PM
Billy Kingsley

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.

Feb. 10, 2018 - 9:50PM
Billy Kingsley

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.

Feb. 11, 2018 - 10:52AM

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

Mar. 16, 2018 - 5:02AM
Billy Kingsley

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.

Apr. 9, 2018 - 6:49AM

Try here DarkSide for race day chats

Apr. 20, 2018 - 3:52PM

cool idea, to be this organized


May. 10, 2018 - 2:51PM

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.

May. 10, 2018 - 3:49PM
Billy Kingsley

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

May. 20, 2018 - 2:49AM

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!

May. 20, 2018 - 7:01AM
Billy Kingsley

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.

May. 31, 2018 - 5:28AM

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

May. 31, 2018 - 12:49PM
Billy Kingsley

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

May. 31, 2018 - 7:08PM

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.)

Jun. 21, 2018 - 10:59PM

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

Jun. 22, 2018 - 3:06AM
Billy Kingsley

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...

Jun. 25, 2018 - 9:37PM

Maybe a future member of my Discount Superstars list, Dan Fors was also an outfielder for the Orioles, Twins, and Angels.

Jun. 25, 2018 - 11:07PM
Billy Kingsley

I'm not sure it's the same guy...that would be cool if it was!


Jun. 26, 2018 - 12:58AM

YW for the Bubba card Billy. I told everyone those cards look much better in-hand than they are in scans! Seems like many people didn't believe me. I'm glad you like the card and I hope you find some blasters of VL soon.

Jul. 4, 2018 - 7:38PM

About the checklist for the 2017 BBM 1st version, sorry that was me. It was the first checklist I ever uploaded to the website and obviously, I didn't do a pretty good job with it. 

Oct. 20, 2018 - 8:02AM

@ October 19th, Darrell Waltrip card.  Yes, Billy, I'm sneaky like that.

Oct. 20, 2018 - 11:29PM
Billy Kingsley

You're the best kind of sneaky, Chuck!
