I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, filled with plenty of family, friends and food. And if you braved the crowds this Black Friday, I hope you survived.
One common practice for many of us this time of year is to count all the blessings for which we are thankful. It’s easy to take things for granted when we have so much- and I often find myself feeling entitled, forgetting that I am owed nothing.
In the cardboard realm, I’ll use the odd-ball issues that were once common place in the Hobby as an example. The 80s and 90s were a haven for odd-ball collectors, but then, all of a sudden, they began drying up and were no longer as ubiquitous as they once were. This is especially true of Food-Issues, those tasty cards that were found in seemingly every box of cereal, frozen food and snack at the supermarket.We went from being stuffed to hungering for a new appetizer.
It was at this point I realized how thankful I was for these cardboard treats. Years later, we finally had a new food-issue to feast on this year with the release of Topps’ Marketside Pizza cards found exclusively in Walmart with their Marketside Pizza and breadstick products.
I picked these cards up on Sportlots recently and am now down to needing 13 cards to complete the set. Cards needed: 10,11,13,14,18,22,23,24,26,27,28,29.
