Slice Of American Pie:Facebook Founded

*takes a sip, gets ready for the latest Cards Over Coffee post!*

I am doing this post a day in advance since the internet is actually working, so I can pull off two posts in a row. Especially since I am a little backed up with cards.

I have a few mail days to post about, so I thought I would start with this one.

Recently I ran into some luck in my chase for the 2011 Topps American Pie set on eBay. 

I had been watching a few of the base cards I needed for the set and they ended for $1 each. Which was way cheaper than they normally end for. I saw that the seller also had others ending in a few days so I messaged them and said I would be happy to grab more of them for that price and he said let me know which ones. HOLY SMOKES!! So I grabbed the ones that normally end for a much higher price for the $1 each and I fit as many as I could for the small budget I was working with.

Including today's card, Facebook.

The Facebook rookie card normally can be found a few bucks more so I was excited to land it for the price I did.

I can't imagine sitting around with a few buddies and creating the monster that Facebook has grown into. I don't use Facebook a lot myself, but I do daily check-ins. I find it handy to stay in touch with family you don't see often. Other than that and sharing a bunch of funny memes, that's what Facebook is for me. I don't even bother with the hobby on there, it's an ugly place for it.

But, the idea and concept on Facebook was brilliant. It's probably how the creater Mark Zuckerberg became so rich so fast. I wished I had the mind to create something so simple that it just rolls in the money.

If you have any of these cards in your collection and want to check and see if I need them for my set chase, CHECK IT OUT HERE to see my needs. I am creeping closer to completion on this one.

*takes a sip, wonders what can be done with coffee and cards...oh wait...I did a blog on that....what else...what else....*

Thoughts on my latest set add welcomed in comments and whether you use Facebook or not.

Before closing, I wanted to mention today's card adds were grabbed thanks to the Fetch App. I got another eBay gift card and am now up to $80 in them from using the Fetch app just by scanning receipts I normally throw away. If you are interested in earning gift cards for just scanning your reciepts, you can email me at and I will send you my code to earn you 2,000 free points. DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS. It's crazy easy and I didn't believe it at first either.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday.
