It's A Dawg Day X-Mas!

Sometimes,bloggers take It upon themselves to perform acts of kindness ,on a whim.Angus ,over at http://dawgdaycards.blogspot.com/  ,recently did just that.Angus put out the call and prompted everyone to send him an e-mail ,stating what players/teams they collect,so that he could send them all a nice X-Mas card filled with ..you guessed It..more cards!I stated that I was currently In late 80's , 90's Bills mode In the e-mail I sent him,and he delivered!Who does that?The gesture was genuine and with the day I was having,finding a nice little white envelope with my name on It from Dawg Day put a smile on my face!Finding 90's Bills goodness inside of that envelope cemented that smile.Then I realized that I was alone and smiling a little bit too much ,and ....well, that's  just  creepy ,so I curbed the enthusiasm and got to typing (with a straight face).I love all the cards he sent over but the Thurman Thomas Is my favs.I now have two whole Thurminator cards!A special shout out  and thank you to Angus of Dawg Day Cards !Your good deed will not go unrewarded ;)

UPDATE: Quick question,Angus.Were these Superbowl XXV available on store shelves or were they exclusively available at Superbowl XXV? 


These cards shot me right back to my childhood! 











I've been looking to put this mini card album to use.I am now a collector of  Thurman Thomas ! My goal Is to have this album filled up by summer time :)

  3. Glad you enjoyed the cards!

    From what I've read the Super Bowl cards were sold in a set in a binder, and most were sold at the Super Bowl but a good minority of them were available as some sort of mailaway.

    I love oddball cards and if I see something interesting cheap I pick it up whether or not it fits my collection - I figure somebody somewhere will want it sooner or later. This blogging has actually helped me find those someones. I don't actually remember where I found these Bills. I think they were in a store in Phoenix last spring, but they may have been at a local card store. I'm glad they have a good home.

    Thurman Thomas? I think I can find a few in all my old junk wax cards...

    1. Bills cards like this are what bring me back to my childhood,so they're always welcomed.I had a ton of Pro Set growing up.I've yet to pull out anything for you but I have some cool Mets stuff In mind and maybe a Browns card or two.Thanks again,buddy :)

  4. Early '90s football cards take me a nice mental place, too. Doesn't hurt that they're Bills cards. Looking forward to checking out the ESPN doc Saturday night about the Super Bowl teams.
