This Started As A Card Site, Right?: Recent Non-Sports Pick-ups

Yes, I’ve been busy doing a bunch of other things, but cards are the space from which this site originates, so let’s cover a few, in this case some non-sports stuff.

Inching closer to finishing original Garbage Pail Kids Series 1-3 (initially, I was just gonna do 2-3, but I found near-sets of both sides of Series 1 maybe a year or so ago). These were both at a table at my town flea market last weekend, along with this CD…

Yes, it was a pretty good flea market table.

For those wondering, this is what’s left of my GPK want list now:

1985 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 1a (matte preferred, last update 04/02/18): 5 (regular back), 9, 33, 41

If you’ve got any of these laying around, get in touch!

Yesterday, I hit my usual flea market, and turned up a couple more fun non-sports items…

Look at these mugs, punchin’ a kid. Those rats!

I’ve got the reprint set, but I’ll almost always pick up an original ’60s Batman card if I run into any, and I’ve got the dough.

“LOCKED SWORDS…huh-huh, huh-huh…”

If I’m being honest, I’m down for just about any ’60s non-sports stuff, as long as it’s within my fairly modest budget. I mean, Zorro cards don’t just show up every day…

As I get more and more frustrated with major sports leagues, the likelihood of me getting deeper into non-sports cards increases, though if I got really serious about it, there would need to be a focus and (likely) a cut-off date (as a lot of cards came out in the ’90s).

More cards (the kind with sports on ’em) coming relatively soon. I’ve got a small pile near my scanner, and I’m going to try and do smaller posts so I don’t kill y’all with my usual 40-different-card monster posts.

One thought on “This Started As A Card Site, Right?: Recent Non-Sports Pick-ups”

  1. There’s a couple of neat gets here. Everybody seems to love the 60’s Batman sets, and I’m no different, but it’s really nice to see someone else showing off some Zorro cards! I love the show and I love the cards. With each passing year there’s less and less people interested in them, so it’s made the cards much more affordable, non-graded cards that is, which is a good thing, at least in my mind!
