The Card Bin: What Did I Find This Time?

I really enjoyed doing this post over at The Card Bin blog and I wasn't just going to leave you all hanging with it. So without further ado, another post from The Card Bin, which is what I call this this tote right here:

I think most of us collectors have that one place we store all of our extra cards that are not PC related. This is where I stick mine. I also use this as a once-in-awhile dig through to bring back memories or for a just for fun experience. I will start posting cards from this bin to show you what's hiding in there. I honestly have no idea what is in there, I only know its autographs and memorabilia cards from the past 14 years. So this should be fun for both you and I!

Onto today's find:
2009 Upper Deck Icons NFL Icons Julius Peppers Jersey Card
Thoughts on today's find are welcomed!

The Post About Nothing

Yup, you read it. This post is about nothing.

Have I run out of ideas to write about? Absolutely not. I am just saving those for the New Year. Do I want to call this a filler post til that time comes? Yes. Why? I really don't know. I thought I had something ready to go for today, but I guess not.

So to fill up a post about nothing, I thought I would recap a few pics from way back when the blog first started since it is getting a complete makeover and see if any of you remember the pictures or the posts connected to them. Enjoy the memories of what once was. Remember also, these pics were taken when I was a rookie blogger, so some are awful lol.

And that's it. Here's to wrapping up this post about absolutely nothing but may have had a touch of something.

Break 'Em: 12 Packs Of 1991 Action Packed Football

Recently I showed off my surprise EPIC mail day from The Pack Gambler. In that article, I mentioned there were 12 packs of 1991 Action Packed Football that I would open at a later date. Well, the time has come.

Not only did I bust all 12 packs at a slow pace, it took me roughly an hour as I studied every card, but I have also put together the full gallery of all 12 packs. So sit back, take a moment back in time and enjoy!

The golden wrapper. It's sorta like the golden ticket into something wonderful. The wonderfulness of action packed field pics with embossing.

The cards!

A couple of Giants and Emmitt. As a Giants fan, I hate him. But, as a collector, I am glad to have found him.

Some BIG TIME Hall Of Famers found in this lot. Barry Sanders, John Elway and Troy Aikman.

My man Rodney! Some guy named Joe Montana as well.

Overall, a ton of fun. I was a bit disappointed not to have landed the Favre rookie after 12 packs but sometimes that's how the cookie crumbles. This also may mean I have to go and find some more :)
