As I posted on Christmas Eve, my family always gets me cards for Christmas, and 2014 was no exception. I ended up getting 243 new cards, and the biggest surprise of all was a box of 2014-15 Panini Prestige Premium! I never thought I would ever get that one. I also got a handful of great singles I needed, some random packs, and several blasters. Note the stack of packs on the left hand side of this photo-
For Christmas this year I gave my family a list of people and sets not in my collection, and I got lots of cards of people who it was my 1st card of them!
I have a hard time picking favorites - I love all my cards- but the Darrell Wallace Jr. auto may be my favorite of the new cards. I've been following his career since he was 16, and I believe he will be a Cup champion someday, if he gets the right opportunity.
Getting a 1948 Bowman card is always special. This is my 7th, and the first one I've ever received as a gift. It was the first basketball set ever released. The NBA hadn't even been formed yet when this card was issued. The green around the edges is the green construction paper I put behind most cards to scan. It was the only card ever issued of Gale Bishop.
I've created a List on the Trading Card Database documenting all 243 cards I got for Christmas, and you can see it here: Cards I got for Christmas 2014 List unless I am updating it, in which case it is not visible until I finish for that session. I only have 69 of the cards posted so far, so I still have some updating to do. I would have been farther along but I hurt my back badly on the 26th- I have a bad back and have pain 24/7, but I hurt it really bad somehow and have not really been able to do much, including sit at my computer. The crazy thing is that it started hurting when I put my foot down moving a box with only a handful of magazines, and nothing more, off my scanner to start scanning my new additions.
As always, thanks for reading!
