30 Day Baseball Card Challenge

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Sing it Andy...

Not sure about you...  but I'm so excited about this year's holiday season.  Over the past week or so, I've even caught myself humming the famous song and that's even after dropping close to three bills into the slot machines in Las Vegas.

So why am I in such a holly, jolly mood?  Several reasons actually...

A.  It's that time of the year where we have back to back vacations.  One week off for Thanksgiving.  Three weeks back in the classroom.  Then two weeks off for Christmas and New Years.  It's awesome!

B.  That means I get to catch up on some much needed sleep and hang out with friends and family.  And if there's enough time, I'll hit up some flea markets and maybe even sort some cards.

C.  Awesome sales.  I'm one of the biggest cheapskates in the world, but that doesn't mean I don't like to shop.  I just like to find bargains.  And that's exactly what I did on Black Friday.  Stay tuned.  I'll show off my goodies as soon as they arrive.

D.  Last but not least... I'm excited, because I finally get to show off these holiday themed trading cards of Candace Kita...

Who's Candace Kita?  I have no idea...

But she's Japanese (at least I think she is)... which means I'll be adding her to my Japanese PC.  And just in case you're thinking that she shouldn't be part of my collection, because she's not an athlete... then feast your eyes on these...

She's holding balls, right?

And she's grabbing a stick!  That's enough proof for me.

Happy Hump Day and sayonara!


  1. Good thing my wife wasn't overlooking my shoulders when I was reading this :0

    1. What? She's not a fan of Andy Williams? ;-)

  2. Well there's something to be cheery about ;).

    1. I think she has a basketball and football card too. One of these days I'll track one down and add it to the PC.

  4. Really!? You are simply boys being boys =P

    1. You're just lucky that 99.9% of trading cards feature men. Let us enjoy the handful of trading cards with attractive women on them :)
