It's Christmas!

*sits down, takes a sip with some newer Christmas cards to post nearby. the spirit and joy of Christmas is in the air and I am ready*

It's Christmas!

This means many things to many of us. 

For me, it means the birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus. It also means spending time with my family eating a big breakfast and sharing gifts and love. And finally, it means the end of Mariah Carey's reign of terror on the season until next November. 

I know we all feel the last one.

I am technically not blogging this live today as I am as I stated spending time with family, but other than that, another thing that I do on Christmas day is open up card packages I had gotten for the month. One of my favorite openings every year is my massive mail day from Wes from JBF/Area 40 blog fame, which I always save for last.

Even though I won't be posting this year's cards yet, I have been holding the cards I will feature today in drafts for a whole year waiting for this post.

*takes a sip and gets ready to show off the cards*

One of the most iconic Christmas cards to collect I believe is this 1998 Upper Deck Holiday-Worn Jersey of the man himself Kris Kringle. This was very unique for the time it was released. This was a very exciting add.

You're a mean one! Not talking about Wes either. Somehow, he must have known I wanted this card since I had already added the autographs from the set. Is this in a weird way Jim Carrey's rookie?

I don't care if you put a piece of pizza on a prism card, always shines.

I hadn't been able to land this card last year as it was a part of Panini's Black Friday set in the past. Glad to have this one knocked down finally.

And finally, after penning all of those letters to Santa over the years, he finally gave me an autograph in return.

Thanks again to Wes for the mail day of Christmas cards.

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good cup of coffee.

In comments today, tell me what you hope to see under the tree.....other than coffee of course.

*Coffee Card Blogger Out*


  1. Wes is still dropping JBF bombs? Oh I can't wait to see that!

    These Santa Claus relics are all new to me. The 98 UD issue is especially sharp.

    Merry Christmas, and here's to not having to hear Mariah Carey for another 320 days :D

  2. Merry Christmas to everyone. Thankful for the birth of Jesus, his saving power and coffee. I need a refill!

  3. Merry Christmas! I didn't have a tree this year... but if I did, I would have loved to see some cards under it. That Kris Kringle relic is awesome!


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
