My Wallet Card, Three Years Later

More than three years ago (January 5th, 2015 to be exact), I did a post where I picked out a wallet card which was the fidget spinner of the trading card blogs at the time. I went with the 1980 Topps No. 623 Gorman Thomas and it has been in my wallet ever since. Here is the cards current condition (on the left) versus day one (on the right). 

Here's the reverse side which is showing some age. 


I will admit that over the past year I've sort of forgotten it was with me everywhere I go. The first year I would remember to take it out and snap a photo. I took it to the Atlantic Ocean ...


the Everglades ...


Stone Mountain ...


the Louisville Slugger Museum ...


I know some bloggers have replaced their cards over the years but I've stock with mine so far and I think it has held up pretty well. I guess that's a testament to the quality of the 1980 Topps set? I never thought I would ever type that sentence in a post. Long story short, in 2018 I'm going to try to up my wallet card game a little more and remember to actually get it out of the wallet more often.
