Card About Coffee

*where would life be without coffee is what I am pondering this morning after not getting a lot of sleep last night. For a strictly decaf coffee drinker, the taste is what its all about for me so I go to a lot of dark roasts to get that flavor. otherwise it feels like I am drinking watered down milk or what I call skim milk. takes another sip, I can feel myself waking up some...*

I had never considered the thought before, but how cool would it be to own a card that involved coffee for this Coffee drinking, blogger? So I took to Twitter for help on this subject. I was shown a few examples of players drinking out of paper cups, etc. It really wasn't what I was looking for. Then I started getting some more interesting suggestions. Someone found a really cool Coffee Mug card from 1991 Star Pics Twin Peaks I really want still. Another person found suggested that maybe I should collect a few Glen Coffee cards. Then a close friend of mine sent me a picture of a card that is in today's card post and let me tell you, this card is a perfect fit.

*takes another sip. not feeling quite hungry yet, but craves more coffee. follows up with a few more sips, a gulp and a swig to finish the cup. onto cup #2*

In 2019, Rittenhouse created a Scratch and Sniff set in it's Twin Peaks Archives product. There are a few cards in that set that would fit on this blog but none more than the one I bought.
Coffee...and yes, I scratched it some just so I can sniff it and they nailed the scent.

 
I probably won't scratch it too many times as I don't want it to lose its essence.

I don't remember a lot about the show but remember watching it in the 90's. I may have to do some research or watch a few episodes to remind myself.

*takes a scratch..I mean sip before closing up today's post*

On my big want list right now is to hunt down that Star Pics Coffee Mug card. I think it would be a lot of fun to coffee card up this blog.

Also on my watch list is adding a few more of these that would fit on here such as Bacon and Eggs, Birthday Cake and especially, Donuts. No, I am not a cop.

Let me know your thoughts on scratch and sniff cards and if you own or have seen any cards that relate to coffee.

  1. You can check into a mini collection of MLB players (or just Yankees) who had a "cup of coffee" in the bigs!

  2. Go to COMC and type in coffee, then filter by non-sports, you'll find a lot of fun things (check the sold listings too).
