NBA, NHL, NASCAR, Star Wars, History, Military, DC Comics, Olympics, whatever interests me

Current project is trying to get at least one card of everyone to ever get one for NBA, NHL and NASCAR. Also working on getting at least one example of every set ever for the above sports. (Wantlists on Cardboard History)

At the moment, attempting to dial back on the hobbies so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of classic car ownership.

Birthday Cards + 1st Anniversary of Cardboard History Gallery

First off, sorry I've been unresponsive to the comments I got on the last two posts. I've been on an epic, 11 day, 6 state road trip that saw me knock the second of only three things off my bucket list, and then I've been working on the 8500 pictures I took on the trip...a new record in several categories. I'll have more on that in my next post. 

However, today is my 35th Birthday, and as usual, that means I got some cards. Usually, I know I'll only be getting cards from my family, but that was not the case this year. One of my friends from the Trading Card Database sent me some Birthday cards.  

Bevans, who I've mentioned a few times as a frequent trading partner sent them to me...and they are sure great! 
A Lundqvist relic card, a Joe Johnson parallel from my favorite brand, a vintage OPC Rangers card (this is the corrected version), a numbered Messier parallel, a neat wire photo card, a minor league team set based on the 1996-97 Collector's Choice design...interesting as it was issued the same year...and a Lundqvist promo insert (from Tim Horton's set)
 These here are all errors...cards that should be SN but are not.
 I don't know if they are actually errors, or if they are cards that got out when Fleer went out of business during the 2004-05 season. I DID pull a card that was supposed to be SN but wasn't, so I suppose either is possible.
 My very first ever SportsCaster card! These are huge! I am sorry about the glare, I should have taken it out of the toploader.

The cards from Brad were waiting for me at the PO box when we got home on the 16th.

On my actual birthday, my Mom gave me a jumbo pack of last year's Hoops which yielded these cards:

 Then later she gave me two blasters. I did not have a single card from Victory Lane yet- and as I type this I still don't as I scan each pack before opening, and didn't do that yet! I had gotten two packs of MVP when I was in Lake George but that's not many at all.
Actual birthday cards! Unfortunately, slightly blurry.
My brother took me to Hobby Lobby and let me have a modeling shopping spree. I've attempted a Metal Earth kit in the past but failed, hopefully I can get this one built. Although there's no gluing or painting required on these kits, they are absolutely real models and require a considerable amount of skill...so there's no guarantee I can pull it off, lol. 

Tomorrow is my model club's yearly show, and then I should be able to actually rest and recuperate for a while. 

Today also marks the 1 year anniversary of the Cardboard History Gallery...not a stretch to say my "magnum opus" in the hobby. 
I still have a long way to go but there is actual progress being made now...well, there was, before I went away for over a week. 
As you can see I've put a TON of effort into it already. As I say, there's still more to go, but I'm happy with how it's building up now.
