On Saturday, I walked around the flea market and picked up some cards that included this shoebox full of randomness. It was filled with a little bit of everything and kind of reminded me of a trip through a casino buffet.
I figured I'd kick things off with something light. You know... the cardboard equivalent to a salad:
After that... it's time to try something new. Something you wouldn't typically order when you go out to eat. Let's see... how about some Dr. Who CCG's and a pair of Star Trek sets:
Okay... win some, lose some. That's what happens when you experiment at the buffet. Time to get back on track with some of your favorites. Personally that means mashed potatoes and gravy with some corn on the cob. Cardboard translation... inserts and oddballs:
And you can't have mashed potatoes without a few slices of turkey:
The idea of football coaches having rookie cards is like having dried out turkey at a buffet. Let's get to the good stuff.
The main course. The main reason you decided to go to that specific buffet. Sometimes it's the prime rib. Other times it's the barbecue ribs. In this particular situation... it was the stack of 1992 Skybox Marvel Universe cards.
This shoebox contained six cards for my Series 3 set...
And it made this entire meal... I mean shoebox... super satisfying.
The only thing left is a little dessert:
Two hearty servings of Pamela Anderson. And if Barbed Wire trading cards aren't your thing... how about comic book artist trading cards that include Todd McFarlane going topless:
Oh no. I think I just threw up a little. Sorta reminds me of the first time I laid eyes on this:
(borrowed from Google... this card wasn't in the box)
Happy Monday and sayonara!
