First Ever Give-Away

 After much hemming and hawing, I've taken the leap and decided to actually make some physical cards.  These are all cards that have appeared in this blog.  They are high quality card stock with both front and back printed. These are closer to Topps Archives type feel than the actual vintage 60s or 70s feel.  But they are NOT cheapo cardstock or paper prints.

I will be selling these for $10 a pack, plus shipping.  I am still working out the details. In the mean time. here is a tease as to what cards are in my first pack:

Now due to an error, I got twice as many of the 1982 Fleer Major League Prospect card of Sandberg and Boggs.  So I'm giving them away to 10 random people who leave a comment. Just leave a comment here, and on Friday I'll pick 10. I'll then contact those 10 for their mailing address.

I'm also giving 10 away on Twitter. Check me out @CardsThatNever. I am asking for a follow and retweet.  I will then select 10 winners there. Good Luck. 

***************************UPDATE*************************

Lots of great comments already. My first batch is done already. But I am curious which cards of mine would you like to see in the physical form?

1965 Philadelphia Bob Hayes

 


Keeping on with a football vibe, here's a rookie Card That Never Was of Bob Hayes.  On this date in 1964 he won a gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics in the men's 100m.

In his rookie season, 1965, he had 1003 receiving yards, led the NFL in TD receptions and was selected to the Pro Bowl.

1962 Topps George Blanda


Fifty eight years ago today, George Blanda tossed 6 TD passes.  The Oilers beat the NY Titans (later the Jets) 56-17.  The 1962 Topps Football set is definitely one of my favorite designs.  But in 1962 Topps made cards for the NFL and Fleer made AFL cards.  Fortunately, I don't have to follow those rules.
