previously. I had to go with the Lundqvist plate from Rookie Anthology, because it's my first 1/1 from the NHL! I already had a couple of 1/1s from NASCAR, including one of Dale Jr.
got a bunch of these from one of my best friends, that it would be a card from this set...the question was, which one? Although this one is slightly out of focus- most of them are- I had to go with it. The Silhouette is legendary. The real car led to a model from AMT, and was one of the Original 16 Hot Wheels in 1968, the same year this card was made. Adding to it's legendary status is the mystery of the car- it was stolen, and never recovered. It had a custom built, matching trailer, and somebody, at a motel the night before a car show, hooked that trailer up to their vehicle and drove away. It has never been seen again, and it's fate remains one of the biggest mysteries of automotive culture. I've been aware of the car for years, but I finally added it to my Hot Wheels collection in 1994, when many of the earlier issues were released for the 25th anniversary, and I later added the AMT kit to my collection, although I have not built it yet.
Five of the 12 cards so far were Card of the Day.
Here's the Top 12 from 2017 and 2016. As I've mentioned in both posts, I plan to write one up for 2015 and one for 2014, but I still have not gotten around to it yet.
