Pumpkin Spice And A Prize Pack That's Nice

*time for a new cards over coffee post*

You may not want to hear it, but it's pumpkin spice season.

I have already started diving into some of my favorites around this time of year. I already had a hot pumpkin spice coffee from Dunkin'.

Bought some Pumpkin Spice creamer, in today's cup, though I much rather have the CoffeeMate version as their creamer is far better than any other brands. But, apparently theirs isn't out yet. This one wasn't too bad, but not as good by any means.

And some Pumpkin Spice Oreos. These are awesome.

I am sure I will be keeping my eye out on another related treats as they release, I am most notably waiting to eat a pumpkin spice donut.

Guess you can say I am ready for fall....not winter though.

*takes a sip, then a bite of pumpkin spice Oreo*

The post title says, Pumpkin Spice which we already covered and now it's time for the Prize Pack that was nice.

I recently was lucky enough to win a prize from Johnny's Trading Spot blog just by commenting on a post.

Base card of Tony Lazzeri from Absolute. Once again, I think some Panini baseball products are very underrated.

By Storm of Pete Alonso and Alex Bregman from the same product.

And now onto some cards I don't know a lot about, but really enjoyed. 

Vintage isn't something I have much of in my collection, but I do enjoy when I get my hands onto it. I mostly don't collect vintage because I don't know a lot of players other than the big names prior to 1980 since I wasn't born until 1983 and didn't do a lot of research on them either. So, those players don't mean a lot to me unlike guys from the 90's through today.

But, vintage is very cool despite my lack of knowledge on it.
If I looked at these correct, they are from 1968.

And this Dave Lopes is from 1975 and appears to be cut from something.

These 1965 Topps Embossed are by far my favorite Vintage cards. I own one other and now can add these three to it.

I did recognize or at least heard of two of the three names here. Only one I didn't was Radatz.

I would call this a solid contest win and many thanks to Johnny's Trading Spot for the contest. Please check out his blog if you haven't yet done so!

Along with Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cider is another favorite of mine as fall goes deeper. They make some pretty good Apple Cider donuts locally and I just like a nice warm cup on a cold fall day.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday. 

In comments today, let me know your favorite Pumpkin Spice item and your favorite card from today's post!

  1. Vintage guy here! 🙋‍♂️... The Laughlin World Series cards are my favorites. Wrote a Beckett story on them. They're not from '68 (those ones are black & white). The top one is from '71 and the bottom from '70. The Hostess Lopesnwas cut from either a three-card panel or off the Hostess box. ... Wish I got in on this contest. (I don't do pumpkin spice stuff except the donuts).

    1. Thanks for the heads up on those. As i said i have the least bit of knowledge in vintage

  2. Greg is right. The Fleer World Series are Laughlin: Blue backs are 70' and black back is 71". I know the copy right says 68' but that was Mr. Laughlins copy right of the drawings.

  3. Starbucks has a really good pumpkin spice cold brew drink... that's like drinking pumpkin pie. I went to Starbucks last week and they didn't have it yet. Maybe they'll have it the next time I go.

    1. We just got a Starbucks here, now i am tempted!

  4. Totally need to find those pumpkin oreos! Laughlin cards are a favorite of mine despite hardly having any. Fun post!

    1. Thanks!! Yes, find some. I found this one at Walmart. Try there


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!
