Like Stealing Candy From A Baby

Wait.  Should people even give candy to babies?  I'm not a father, but I know I never gave my nieces and nephews candy when they were babies.  Anyways... whether or not you give your baby candy or not... stealing it back from them isn't very nice.

But you wanna know what is nice?  It's pretty nice when you find out that you just won the door prize to the 7th Annual Almost the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web over at Cynical Buddha's blog: Collector's Crack.

The big ticket prize was this 1991 UD Domino's Pizza Quarterback Challenge set:

If you're a fan of football and food issue oddball sets, then this set is for you.  There's everyone from John Elway to Dan Marino.  It's a shame that Upper Deck didn't have the foresight to include a Brett Favre rookie, but that's okay.  They made up for it by adding Bart Starr.

In addition the set, there were a bunch of Seattle Seahawks bonus cards included too:

I was really excited to see a memorabilia card of the Hawk's all-time leading rusher...

2002 Pacific Game Worn Jerseys #43

a super shiny, refractory kind of card of the highest rated quarterback in franchise history...

2016 Donruss Optic #89

and a promo card of the Hawk who has the 8th most receptions in team history:

2003 UD Promos #131

Thank you Cynical Buddha for holding this super easy Super Bowl contest again... and for all of these nice additions to my Seattle Seahawks PC.

Happy Saturday and sayonara!


  1. I came across a near complete UD Dominos set from a thrift store collection a little while ago - unfortunately, it looked like most of the cards were partially inserted into a shredder. Very strange. Yours looks much better!

  2. Congrats on winning the door prize! The Domino's set was one of my faves as a kid. Nice Seahawks, too - I dig that Richard Sherman blue prizm.

  3. There are some very cool Seahawks cards and any collection that includes a Shaun Alexander jersey is an awesome win.

  4. Cool prize win! just too bad Patriots won the super bowl

  5. tony - i think i have a bunch of doubles. if you email me a list of the cards you need, i'll send them your way.

    hackenbush - if they only made their pizza as good as their cards

    chris - yeah, that sherman is sweet. the shiny wilson is my personal fave.

    corky - true. i was more of a curt warner kind of guy, but there's no denying that alexander is the greatest running back in franchise history.

    sport card collectors - it's especially bad that they beat my hawks three years ago too.
