I've done baseball and hockey, but don't have enough of the other categories to make a solo post for them. So, they're all in this one.
Picking a Bills card to lead out is an easy decision for me. But when you also have some Jim Kelly cards to choose from, and the film strip gimmick is a good tie-breaker.

Another two packs hanging around the Walmart.

Much like with the recent hockey post, here's some new 2/14 content for that collection, this time with baseball content of people that have been here before.

What is the significance of the date in the title? It is the date I added this card to my Watch List over at COMC.
And I might as show off the back of the card as well. I completely forgot that the Jays got none of their 15 runs in game 4 courtesy of the long ball. But they got their power back at the best time possible for them in the series.

I'll be spending time today with the 2/14 binder, and all the hockey content in the to-be-posted box.

I've been slowly putting together a 1992 Archives Basketball set through Sportlots. As of now - only 1 card to go - the Jordan that I'm guessing flea market sellers pay a premium for to flip as his "rookie" card to gullible buyers. To get to the next shipment threshold, I'd add various cards that interested me. Here are some of them.
I barely remember Jacob Brumfield's time with Toronto. Thankfully, I have garish cards to remind me of that.

Tre Ford came to QB a program that was horrific in the early 2010s. They had a complete season wiped out after a steroid distribution scandal. When it resumed, they'd regularly lose by 50+ points. But Ford would lead the team into the playoffs in 2018 for the first time in 15 years. In 2021, he'd win the Hec Creighton award (like the Heisman), and would be a first-round pick of the Edmonton Elks.
That's a green & white Elks jersey on the card. It is certainly Tre's name - and the card is on the checklist as Tre.
But that's a Toronto Argonauts logo, and the photo is not Ford's, but that of the decidedly paler and blue-clad Nick Arbuckle. Nick was a teammate of Ford in 2022, so this photo actually pre-dates Arbuckle's time in Edmonton.
To make things worse, Ford didn't get a base card in the set. All he has are relic hits and parallels, like this patch card.
I still love this card - and it counts as part of my Warriors alum collection.

Coming off one birthday post, here's another, with some of the new members of the collection.

It is more of a birthday slider box now. Hopefully, I'll have the fortitude to keep it that way.
But here's the contents of that box. Since Mischief is a little girl, I'll start with the distaff content!
