Earlier this week I returned to my parent's house for a little visit and I grabbed two boxes of my old cards that I hadn't looked at in years and brought them back to Kansas. One box turned out to be entirely non-baseball in nature which was exciting and shocking as to look at some of the cards I collected through the years. With some of these sets I'm not even really sure of their origin.
These cards are called NFL Huddles and I'm not sure where they came from...They are kids versions of the NFL mascots and I imagine I have a card for every team spread throughout my collection. Does anyone have any idea where these are from?
These are some of the Crunch Crew insert from the 1990 Score Football set. I love the 1960's Batman TV series feel.
These are the Think About It set from the 1991 Pro Set series which I think is still my favorite football set.
Here are some random basketball cards...I remember when Skybox first came out...I thought they were so cool.
Thinking back I don't think I've opened a pack of hockey cards in about 10 years. The main reason I stopped caring about hockey was when my beloved North Stars dropped the "North" and moved to Dallas. But I've been eyeing the O-Pee-Chee hockey cards at Wal-Mart and I might have to take a chance.
My secret hockey shame is that I didn't know that the Hartford Whalers team didn't exist until about a year ago.
Some random football cards that struck my fancy in one way or another.
Len Dawson's hands on this one scare me a little. Len is the sports guy on one of the local stations out of Kansas City and it's always weird when he is giving the score of high schools sports and I just think that's freakin' Len Dawson.
In Packer country, there is a thing called the Infante Era that was filled with sadness and dread before the glorious days of the Mike Holmgren, Reggie White, and you know who.
Comic Book Cards:
This card is a Marvel Masterpieces Canvas card and it has the same feel as the Upper Deck Masterpieces cards.
Although I've never really been a DC comics guy, I've always been interested in the Green Lantern:
I love the super villain who's power is that he's smart.
Some random cards from an X-men card game:
Every kid my age had these cards:
I can't wait for next year's G.I. Joe movie:
I can't remember if these Transformer cards came with the Transformers themselves or separately.
I don't really remember there being a Dodge Caravan Transformer but I guess there was called Ironhide:
One random Star Trek card...
The Magic version of pulling a 1990 Topps Kent Hrbek.
After looking at these last cards, can you really wonder why I collect Upper Deck X:
And last but not least:
