Recently I sent Shane from Shoebox Legends some Buybacks for his baseball Frankenset that I found in my local dealer's stock. He sent me a thank you gift that he described as "a few cards" but turned out to be a few hundred! Or close to it anyway- he sent me 178 new cards, which included another lucky 13 new sets and a whopping 51 new people for my collection! The cards ranged in age from 1979-80 up all the way to 2015-16. There were so many great cards it's hard to pick a favorite, I can't do it. But here are some highlights!
I think I need to lead off with what is only my third NHL relic, and to make it even more interesting- it's dual sided! It's rare for me to show a front and back of a card but here, it's a must.
I think this Quest for the Cup card came from Shane, but it may have come from Julie or one of the other two people who sent me hockey cards during the past couple of weeks. I can't keep them all straight anymore, so just enjoy the scan, LOL
Now, since hockey is actually pretty popular among card collectors, most of what he sent me is already posted to the Trading Card Database, which means I set it aside for later, when I finish scanning what has not been posted yet, I will go back and scan my copies of the cards anyway for my own website and possible blog posting. But it might be a while. So here is a photo I took showing some of them...every card on my scanner came from Shane. I highlighted the 1979-80 cards because they are vintage, but there are other 80s cards in the stacks.
Thanks for all the great cards Shane, it's very much appreciated! If you ever decide to start collecting the NBA or NASCAR I would be glad to send you a similar mailing!
