Only Time I Want The Edge

*sits down on this frustrating day so far. cold temps to -30, internet being down for 11 days, and other frustrations have led to a calming moment to do a new cards over coffee post with an afternoon cup of delight*

*takes a sip...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. that hits the spot*

There have been arguments since the beginning of time over the edge piece of any baked goods, especially brownies. For me it's no argument, you go for the gooey center every time. This is not just for brownies and desserts, for me, as it's the same way with pasta dishes and anything else you bake. I just am not a fan of the outer edges. I don't like the crunchiness or over cooked parts. Give me chewy over crunchy any day.

I am anti-edge.

The only time an edge is acceptable to me, is when it's a Collectors Edge which I have plenty to show off of with my recent trade with Shane from Cheap Wax Wednesday.

*takes a sip before showing off today's cards*

Shane had gone to a card show to hunt for not only things for himself, but to hunt for things for our trade. He knows how much I am always on the hunt for 90's inserts and parallels and he found plenty for me. 

Today, I am just showing off the Collectors Edge that he found, and I am not going to even comment on each card. I will let the cards do the talking for themselves. So, sit there, scroll slowly, take a sip of coffee (or another beverage if you choose) and enjoy. If it comes to it, grab a snack.

You will quickly see why this is the only time I want the edge.


How was that? I bet those made your day. I know they made mine seeing them again, I needed that pick-me-up.

A lot of those cards fit some set chases I had already begun, so when Shane had shown me what he had picked up, I knew it was a double PC find.

Thanks again to Shane from Cheap Wax Wednesday for not only having good taste in pickups, but for snagging these for me.

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

Whether you are an edge or a middle of the dish person, I think we can all agree that Collectors Edge brought a lot to the plate. See what I did there. It's too bad they didn't keep on rolling until today. For those of us that collected in the 90's, we were pretty lucky to have brands like Collectors Edge.

If any of you have any of these for my set chases, let me know and I will give you my list of needs.

In the meantime, comment below if you are an edge or middle person and your thoughts on Collectors Edge and the cards I featured today.

Have a great Thursday.

*Coffee Card Blogger Out*


  1. Generally, I want the center too. The 1 exception would be brownies.... I want the edge esp. the corners, but only if they are fresh out of the oven and slightly cooled. Once they completely cool going for the middle row.

    1. That's actually when I like the middle the most when it was warm

  2. Those are sweet cards. I know I have some Collector's Edge laying around somewhere, not sure if it's that set but I think they also made some acetate cards back then. I sure missed out on some fun cards in the 90's.

    1. I think those are from 1994 and you should take a dive back in the 90's, so much greatness!

  3. Not gonna lie, I've never heard of this "debate" before. Not being a foodie, it's hard for me to imagine that this is even a thing.

  4. Great looking cards! Can't beat those junk wax era inserts.

  5. It boggles my mind every time I see the edge/middle brownie debate and how many people emphatically say "edge!" Fine, go for it, leave the good stuff for me.

  6. When I was younger, I didn't like the edge pieces of lasagne or brownies, but these days I do. But I'll eat the center pieces too. As for Collector's Edge... the first thing that pops into my head is the serial numbering.

    1. Yes, I never quite understood the serial numbering


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!
