Collecting Continues

I've missed a whole week of blog reading and posting.  I was doing some collecting of a different kind this week at work - gathering chromebooks for our elementary students to use during the next month (and however longer this thing lasts) at home, and distributing them on Friday.  Needless to say it's been a tough week, and I'm exhausted.  Haven't had the energy for posts with any brain power behind them.

The flow of cardboard hasn't stemmed though, I sent several packages out this past week and have even more to go soon.

Got one from Gavin at BBC Breakdown about Wednesday or so.  Let's check it out.

He started with a few Redskins.  This one is from one of the rare sets I actually am still building - 2014 Prestige.  Cool design and a ton of inserts.

Same product, just four years younger.  Prestige seems to be the product that I'd build annually if I built football sets as regularly as I do baseball.  I would actually say that I follow football a lot closer too, but just can't get into building the sets as much in recent years.

Two Heritage short prints - always welcome.  I feel like I have a shot at completing this set in a reasonable time, unlike most of the older Heritage that I've started from bulk base lots.  2020's popularity probably helps too.

I was really excited to see these in the stack.  I vaguely recall asking if he had dupes of my player guys.  I think these put me down to only one or two more for all the players I'm looking for.

And finally, this bronze version of British-born baby love wrestler Paige from 2016.  Gotta love hotness parallels.  Might have to put some of her other nice cardboard portraits on my non-sport wants page.

Thanks Gavin!  Always good stuff from you, sir!


  1. Kudos to you for helping your students get the tech they'll need to participate in this "distance learning". I know that our administrators are working hard to do the same right now.

  2. Ahhh Paige... Those older Prestige are visually tricky but always intrigued me none the less.
