Merry Christmas From Upper Deck And Ken Griffey Jr.

First off, I wanted to show off this really cool 90's card I picked up off eBay for my Griffey PC. This isn't something I have seen before on there or even knew of. It seems Upper Deck came up with the Christmas hat idea long before Panini had since this card is from 1999.

The card itself is a 5X7 with a swatch of Griffey worn Santa hat.

This may be my newest favorite addition to my PC.


I hope you guys agree that this is pretty cool. I couldn't believe I scored it for much cheaper than most were going for on eBay.

While I also have your attention, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday depending on how you look at it. I hope you enjoy time with your loved ones and find yourself some wax under the tree. May all of you also have a safe holiday as well.

Have a great one guys and remember if you have time today, this blog will be flooded with a new Random Card On My Desk post EVERY HOUR!

Twas The Night Before Christmas And In My Mail Box Was....

It has been a strangely odd winter thus far and an unexpected green Christmas will take place tomorrow. Another thing that was very unexpected and odd was finding a package in the mail box today when I wasn't expecting one. It was also odd to see where the package came from cause I had never received a package from this person before. But when I read the label and saw @BossHardy202, I knew something good was hiding within.

As with all of my packages, even the expected ones, I couldn't get it home and ripped it open in front of my mail box..

Revealed inside was a NY Giant mail day. Not only a NY Giant mail day, it was an extra bonus as it contained my two favorite products in Topps Chrome and Contenders.

Some great rookie cards right here. Pugh is a solid tackle who the Giants have flexed all over the line this season. I think Moore has a career ahead but only if he can get his head straight. He is with the Dolphins now so best of luck to him. Hankins has been a beast as always.

Everyone knows him now. Even non-sport people who hide under rocks. I think what Odell did was wrong, but I think there was also something that Norman did to cause this. I haven't yet this season see Odell drop a wide open pass and be overly aggressive with an intent to injure. There has to be more to this story. I wished Norman got the suspension too but at least he got a fine.

Either way, without any argument, Odell is one of the Top 5 most exciting and best players in the NFL. I didn't have this card so it's a fresh sight to the PC.

SHINY!! I love shiny!! Randle refractor rookie!

And finally a sweet Shane Vereen Contenders autograph. He may be suited in the awful Patriots uniform, but he was one of the Giants best Free Agent signings. I just wished they would use him more. Every time he has had his hands on the ball this season it alerted defenses taking off some of the pressure from the WR's.
A big thanks goes to @BossHardy202 for this sweet surprise. I really appreciate your kindness and hope you and your family has a Merry Christmas. Also, you never know when you may have to watch your mail box ;)

Tis The Season To Be Griffey

Last week or so, I saw a tweet from The Lost Collector about 2000 Pacific Ornaments. It wasn't like I hadn't seen one before because I had, I just had forgotten all about them. I also didn't have one so that not only reminded me about them but that I needed one as well.

Who else would I go for, well, Ken Griffey Jr of course! I got a great deal on it finding it for under $5. It's simply in mint condition. String for the ornament intact. No dents,scratches or creases. Picture perfect.

I like the creativity, design and sparkle to the card too. Once again there was a lot more creativity to inserts in the late 90's early 2000's. If only companies could find that spark again.

With today's post and newest Griffey addition, I gotta ask a few things...
  1. Do you own one of these inserts?
  2. What card or cards has someone brought up that you had forgotten about that you needed for your PC?
  3. Did you buy the card or cards that you had forgotten about?
Answer these or just simply let me hear your thoughts on my newest PC addition.

Also, Happy Christmas Eve!
