National Trading Card Day

If you are going to have coffee with your cards, today is the day to do so as we celebrate one of the greatest hobbies out there.

Notice how I call it a hobby, not a money grab.

I know my coffee is ready and I have a card project to tackle today to celebrate, so this will be a very short post.

*takes a sip, hope you do too*

Today is National Trading Card Day, which is celebrated every year on February 24th. Today is a day dedicated to commemorating and enjoying the world of trading cards and as a big-time hobbyist who uses the hobby as an escape from the real world, I plan on taking advantage of every second I have today.

I recently acquired an insert for celebrating today which was included in 2022 Topps Allen&Ginter.
The card features who I believe is former Topps marketing employee Emily Kless, who was really nice and I had fun conversations with, along with lots of cards in the background. However it says it's for International Trading Card Day which from doing some research is actually in August I believe, and National Trading Card Day is today. Correct me if I am wrong.

Back of the card discusses the celebration for today and lets us know the insert name which is It's Your Special Day which celebrated many celebratory days.

I hope all of you have a great National Trading Card Day....with coffee of course. Let me know in comments how you plan to spend today celebrating.

My project involves a lot of sorting and hopefully I have enough card supplies on hand. If not, I may need to jump onto BCW and order some. Speaking of that, if you need some supplies today, SAVE 10% off by using code Matt10 at checkout. You can start ordering by clicking this link HERE. Just don't forget the code Matt10 at checkout!!

  1. Happy NTCD! I just learned that it's also National Tortilla Chip Day, which has the same acronym.

    1. Interesting. I also like tortilla chips. I should have celebrated both

  2. Happy National Trading Card Day! In a couple of hours, I'll be heading out to a local card show. Don't anticipate I'll be buying anything (unless the guy with the Japanese baseball cards is out there), but I'll hang out with some friends for a little bit. I've got some other non-card related stuff I need to take care of as well... but I'm hoping to also publish a post too.

    1. The people are really who matter when it comes to the hobby. But finding cool pickups at a show would be great too.

  3. Happy NTCD. I'll be updating Dodger binders at some point today. Also updating my '93 Upper Deck blog.

  4. Happy NTCD, Saturday and coffee day! My plans are always in a state of motion. Flexibility for changes is usually my focus. Everyone enjoy the day. Nice card featured.

    1. I know all about wrenches being thrown into the day, I didnt' quite get to the projects I had hoped to


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!
