Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Spend today being thankful for everything in your life. Even the smallest things deserve a thanks.

I know I am thankful for God, family, house over my head, food on the table, this blog, you guys, the hobby and life in general.

If we were just talking about the hobby in terms of thankfulness, I would say I am most thankful for this card:

It doesn't seem like much, but this is the very first card I posted on here (same pic too) that kicked off Sport Card Collectors. Without this blog I wouldn't have been able to see the hobby in a new way that has expanded my interest in it even more.

What's the one card you are most thankful for and why?

Topps Redemption Mail Day

My patience with redemptions is very thin, I can usually only make it the four months before I require a replacement no matter what the card is. I would rather have something in hand than nothing.

So I replaced my 2014 Topps Five Star Auto parallel of Rashad Jennings, yes I didn't want that to go because it was a Giant, but I did anyways and go this in the mail....

A 2012 Topps Five Star rookie autograph of Michael Floyd.

It's a fair replacement in my opinion. I miss out on a Giants auto, but I get a rookie auto for the PC. 50/50 to me.

Thoughts on this mail day or your Topps redemptions you know where to leave em!

Happy Birthday Junior

Today marks Ken Griffey Jr's 46th birthday! No better way to celebrate then showcasing a PC card. This is my one and only copy of this spectacular and most iconic Griffey Jr and Upper Deck card, the 1989 Upper Deck #1 Ken Griffey Jr

SCC Segment Poll Results

I did a similar poll to this one back at the end of June to see which of my segments is most popular.With some newer ones in place, I decided a second poll was in need to see if opinions on some had changed and found out that they had.

The first time the results were pretty even across the board, this time they are much different with a few surprises to me as I see the views on my end.

Let's take a look at this round and see how the segments fared. Then you will get my thoughts on it.

Hobby Topic
  7 (20%)
Caption This!
  0 (0%)
What's In The Box?
  12 (35%)
This vs That
  3 (8%)
  7 (20%)
Breakin Wax (different than reviews)

  5 (14%)
Opinion Stories
  2 (5%)
Mail Days
  11 (32%)
I Miss The Hobby
  6 (17%)
Throwback CardsDay
  2 (5%) 

What's In The Box finishing at the top spot wasn't much of a surprise. It was my highest viewed series. The sad part is I had to end it as I showed off all of the contents. Mail days coming in second was a bit of a surprise. My mail days are more top eight than second. The more highly viewed Hobby Topic finished in the middle of the pack and third best viewed Caption This! never got a vote. I guess people don't enjoy captioning the cards as much as I do.

Another top 5 in views on my blog is This vs That which nailed only three votes. Breakin Wax and my Reviews always score high but I was a bit surprised my opinion stories failed to only get two votes. Guess a lot of you don't agree with my thoughts lol.

Newcomer Reminiscing 90's did well, but 90's Flashback did even better despite being on the lower end of being viewed. Weird how things worked out.

Let me know your thoughts on these and which one is your favorite!
