Today I decided to look a few holidays we've recently observed (or had no clue existed) and apply some trading cards to them.
1. National Siblings Day 4/10/20
1977 Topps #631-634
There are a few different baseball cards that honor brothers out there. I decided to go with these, but these were the first to pop into my head.
It's a four card subset from 1977 Topps and I'm pretty sure this is how I discovered that George Brett had a brother.
2. National Love Our Children Day 4/4/20
2014 Topps Update #153
Glad to see there's a holiday to celebrate loving your children. Anyways, when I saw this on the calendar I immediately thought of this card.
3. National Pet Day 4/11/20
1993 Milk-Bone Super Stars #4
I don't own a pet, but if I did... it would be a dog. I've written a few dog inspired posts, so I won't bore you with my Bernese Mountain Dog cards again. Instead I went with one of the most famous oddball issues featuring dogs.
One of the coolest things about these cards are they include information about the dog(s) featured on the card.
4. National Beer Day 4/7/20
2001 St. Pauli Girl Set
I told you on Thursday that I'm not a big fan of beer. However I have no problem with women who enjoy drinking beer or women in beer advertisements.
Meet Neriah Davis. She was the 2001 St. Pauli Girl and her favorite perfume is Chanel.
5. National Cherish an Antique Day 4/9/20
1909-11 T206 #399
I feel like different people have different opinions about what is considered an "antique". For the sake of this post, I'll go with something that is 100 years or older.
Corky over at Pack War donated this card to my collection several years ago. It's the first T206 I ever owned.
6. National Find a Rainbow Day 4/3/20
1970 Topps Super Glossy #9
I don't have any shiny refractor rainbows for you today, but I picked up this Bart Starr which kinda features a rainbow.
I bought this card back in February. The original plan was to feature this card on my mom's birthday. But for one reason or another, it didn't happen. Anyways, my parents were fans of the Green Bay Packers back in the 50's and 60's. I'm sure she would have liked this card with the bright colors in the background.
Well... that's it for today. I hope all of you are enjoying a safe holiday weekend with your families.
Happy Easter Eve and sayonara!
