Time to Panik

I knew I needed to go to bed- it was midnight and, even though I had today off, I still had to get up early to take my daughter to school. But the game was in extra innings and I didn’t want to miss any magical moments. The Cubbies had already blown the lead late in the game and I just couldn’t help but think that they were on the verge of a meltdown. These are the Cubs, after all. And yes,their opponent is the team by the Bay- in an even year. So I awoke this morning to the news that San Fran did, in fact, pull off the win. Could it be time to panic in Wrigleyville?

Yes, it’s panic time- or, at least, Panik time. Joe Panik, that is.

I’ve picked up a number of the short-print photo variations from some of the Topps sets from recent years, one of which is the Panik card from 2015 Topps Series 2.

It was also time I picked up this McCtuchen card. Most of the cards I saw listed on eBay were for $10+ but I was able to pick this one up for 99 cents. No brainer at that price.

Sorry, Rajai, nothing too exciting to report on here.

Nice action shots are always a plus, but shots of players interacting with fans help keep it fun.

There are still plenty of these variations to chase after, but I’m not panicking. They’re just a nice bonus to already completed sets.
