NASCAR Weekends

You may remember a while back I decided to rescan my entire NASCAR collection, since the original scans I made were subpar, and not really usable. I didn't have the right tools or the knowledge I have now when I did them, that I have now. 

Well, I hadn't really worked much on them and I needed to change that, so I decided when this season started I would work on NASCAR cards exclusively when I was watching the races on the weekend. Give or take a month into the season, and I'm making some real progress:

When I started, this entire case was full. It's a Jammers 1100 card plastic box, which is what I have my "waiting to be rescanned" NASCAR collection in, or I should say much of it...there's also two 5000 count boxes. While it may not look like it's a whole lot of progress, trust me, it's about 400 to 500 cards I've done since February, because I haven't just been pulling from this box. 

When I started this in February, I didn't have a single card scanned for 1992 Maxx or more importantly, 1991 Maxx, one of my favorite sets ever. 1992 Maxx, with the red border, was the first NASCAR set I ever had completed, at 300 cards, when I got a factory set in mid-1993. No 1991 Maxx appear in this photo, I already pulled out the ones from this box and scanned them, I think. Might be a few stragglers. but I don't see any of the telltale black borders showing. 

I still have a long way to go, this isn't a project that will be completed in 2021, but I wanted to post about it now. 

A couple of times I got on such a roll with them that I continued doing NASCAR from these boxes that I continued doing them after the race was over, I'm not JUST limiting myself to the weekends, but I am ONLY doing these cards on the weekends. Hope that makes sense. It does in my head. 


  1. I think it's pretty cool that you're into scanning your collection. It's not my thing. In fact, if someone told me to scan two 5,000ct. boxes I'd either start freaking out or simply tell them "no thank you".

    1. I'm actually worried about what I'm going to do with my time when I break even!
