I remembered to exchange my wallet card around a quarter to midnight on January 1st.
Do you follow up red with green? Maybe I still have the holiday in my mind because I named Gwynn’s ’88 Score card as my 2022 wallet card. Not a great photo, but I love ’88 Score, actually more for the backs, and have been hanging out for a while. Anyone read a 1988 Score baseball complete set available for trade or sale?
After this year, just one more to round off a 9-pocket page of annual wallet cards. Then the plan is to choose a ride-or-death wallet card in 2024 and just stick to it forever. But we’ll see how it shakes out. For what it’s worth, I’ve been getting a new wallet for Christmas since my old one was falling apart, so I’ll break into a new wallet in addition to a new wallet card. (It’s kind of a satisfying life victory when a wallet is retired rather than lost or stolen, right?)
Speaking of weathered Tony Gwynn maps, stay tuned to see what the ’89 UD map I placed in a sunny spot looks like after a year of sunbathing. I think it’s coming in February or March.
And it’s a good segway to take a look at highlights from the most recent 400-count box Rod was cool enough to swing with last month.
Looks like Rod could find some current product. Nice to refresh the collection with recent cards.
Entertaining variety of non-sport.
There were some solid Lakers cards in it and a bunch of Olympic cards. Like a lot. Anyone working on that 1991 Impel Olympic Hall of Fame set?
Available for trade, limit one per person.
Additions for My Women on Cardboard Mini Collection.
And the Giles Brothers, highlighted by a ’09 vintage stock parallel.
Big thanks as always, Rod! I know your wish list is pretty tight these days, but I would hope to give the favor back sometime, and of course I would love to help with any photoshop needs. Hope to blog you again soon too.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend everyone.
