It's a day off for me today and I couldn't be happier. After some non-stop work grind (coming off a nice golf vacation) my brain is in a bit of a haze. Three days to hit the reset button is a nice treat this time of year.
So what will my day consist of today? Well....I do have a lot of stuff that's been neglected here in the home. I'll at least ponder the thought of doing something about it.
In the meantime, I'll do up a nice blog post about a couple cards I traded for at last month's trader night.
Mask cards are always an eye-catcher for me. With mask sets seemingly everywhere today, you'd think that would be enough to keep me busy. Well, I'm an uber-casual mask collector. I basically won't snag cards on the wantlist unless somebody physically waves them in front of me.
So I add to the list.....but snagging cards that have a nice shot of the player's mask on the front. Over the years I've picked up a couple hundred "mask" cards and one day I might catalogue them.
For now.....they'll just go in the monster box with all the others.
I like the design and concept of this set and really the only miss is that Fuhr's photo comes from a practice. If only he was wearing an Oilers jersey.
Still, another great card to add to the box.
Now........what to do next today?
