Today is National Color Day. Yup. Just another day to celebrate something and in the case of this card blog... it's an excuse to show off colorful cards.
While flipping through my binders looking for colored refractors, I noticed that the Classic cards from the late 80's and early 90's also featured colorful borders. And since Classic cards don't receive the same amount of hobby love as refractors, I decided to focus on them for this post. Don't worry, I'll probably run with the refractor idea next year.
For now... feast your eyes on my Classic rainbow:
Honestly... I didn't pay a lot of attention to Classic cards when they were in production. Yes. I wanted the famous Bo Jackson card that Nolan Ryan is holding. But when it came to spending my hard earned money, I spent it buying packs or boxes.
These days, I'll target specific Classic singles for my player collections on Sportlots and will pick up hall of famers when I find them in dime boxes. What about you?
What are your thoughts on Classic cards?
Is there a particular design or colored border that you like more than any other?
And since it's National Color Day...
What's your favorite color?
Happy National Color Day and sayonara!
