*cards in hand, coffee is ready and so am I for a new Cards Over Coffee*
*takes a sip*
2023 has started off hot in terms of additions to my collection and knocking off some cards I have been wanting for quite some time.
There have been some great 90's inserts and NY Giants cards I have knocked off the want list, but a lot of my bigger cards I have crossed off have come in form of non-sports.
Such as Zendaya's rookie card. I haven't ever watched the newer Spiderman movies, I am still stuck in Tobey Maguire days, but maybe I will finally watch them some day. Spiderman is my second favorite superhero.
Everybody Loves Raymond or should. There were two versions of this card to get, Jets or Giants, I think I made the better choice here. I was a big fan of his show growing up.
NO RESPECT! I feel ya somedays in the blogosphere Rodney. Easily one of my Top 5 favorite comedians.
Burt Reynolds autograph. This has been on the list for awhile now and it felt great to knock it off.
The Fonz! He also takes his time on his signature and it's great.
Let it go. Let it goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! If that doesn't get stuck in your head the rest of the day I did it wrong. I am not sure why I felt I needed this, but I did and it's a 1/1.
The first Caddyshack movie had such a great cast with Murray, Chase and Dangerfield that the second movie couldn't keep up. Oh, and these two were a big part of the cast as well.
I have John's autograph, why not add Joan too.
And yes, you are seeing that right, I added not one but two more Chevy Chase autographs to my PC of him. Now I have three and multiple relics and am beyond stoked about it.
And finally, a new relic for my Wizard Of Oz collection. I have the Scarecrow swatch and now a single hair strand from the Cowardly Lion. My hope next is to land the Yellow Brick Road relic card
Not pictured is a 1/1 Barbara Eden Leaf Pop Century autograph.
Like I said, I added some amazing non-sport stuff recently and I think you guys can see that.
I even just drooled out some coffee just seeing them again. Not on the keyboard or cards though, they are safe so no worries.
Thoughts on my additions, your favorite card from the group are welcomed in comments.
Time for another cup of coffee and to get on with my busy day.

Caddyshack to me was a classic. "Here he is the Cinderella story of the tournament". "It's in the hole. It's in the hole!" That was back in the days when I actually went to the theaters to see a movie. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Awesome stuff. I stopped seeking out celebrity autographs when the pandemic hit... and even dumped a few of the ones I had because they were selling for insane prices. I'm guessing they've come back down to Earth like most of the card hobby, so maybe I'll get back into the game.ReplyDelete
That's an amazing haul! Gonna be looking for a Rodney Dangerfield card after seeing the one you have. That's a good pic of him on the card, too. “Whoa, did somebody step on a duck?”ReplyDelete
I'd love to see a set of just stand-up comics! They could have a special podcast subset, inserts related to their specials and albums. I realize, as with most of my ideas, there is absolutely no market for that, but I think it's a neat idea of having trading cards you could have comics sign at clubs, just like athletes.ReplyDelete
