I have planned to use this headline whenever I get a list ready to go.
Maybe after work tonight I'll be more rested and intelligent, we'll see.
Big pair of days for my collecting activities. Launching a difficult collection goal tonight, visiting a new card shop tomorrow, and a few hundred new cards in Series 2 to start absorbing. Too bad work actually got worse yesterday....I should be so done with my every-day-counts busy busyness. So burnt.
To put a nice graphic on the blogrolls, here is a card for 'yas:
That is as good as it gets in the 20 or so 1990 style cards I have. So close to a masterpiece. Make the lettering boxes orange with the blue frame, and you've reversed the lettering design on Ike's uniform. Not quite sure what to then do about switching out the orange stripes in the frame then, but dang-it, that's Topps' job. How the heck to you use apostrophes correctly with the word "Topps" anyhow?
I did add a few comments on the subject to the comments section of my last post. Art-card fans should check it out.
I gotta jet, to use a 1990 expression. Let's Trade Achives:
