Back on Christmas day I posted a picture of the packaged cards I got, and today I'm going to do a little breakdown on them. I'm not going to cover every card...that would take all year...but I will give a decent breakdown on them. I hope.

A closer look at the cards I got for Christmas
Moving on to NASCAR, the Brickyard 400 box was the only one where I was any kind of disappointed...and that's because it's only a 100 card set, and I got a stack of duplicates probably more than 50 cards high, but still came up 11 cards short of a complete set. Some of the cards I got 4 or 5 copies of. That was frustrating.
cue sad trombone sound here.
As I've talked about in the past, I love the Olympic cards. Unfortunately, the box for the 2021 set was over $200, so I couldn't afford one. I got one pack and this is what I got. The April Ross card happened to be the 1000th Olympic card in my collection. which is quite a milestone. (if the numbers are correct, no guarantees). As much as I love the Olympics the sets they get aren't all that great to me. I would much rather have a card set issued AFTER the games which actually show the events and especially the winners...yes, even if they are not Americans. Until that happens (I'm not going to hold my breath) I will enjoy what is available.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a peek at what I got...I'm sorry I messed up on the repack cards, missing the picture of them proper. Especially as I love getting repacks...that was my favorite way to build my collection when I built the majority of my NBA collection...but It's taken me 2 weeks to put this post together as is and I don't want to push it back any further. Thanks for reading.
