Just about Christmas. Here are some festive cards.
I likely I have more red/green card siblings, but this couple pairs jumped to mind.
While the refraction on this 2021 Chrome Anniversary parallel was a bit of a letdown in hand-- barely more shine than a foilboard card-- I was still very happy to pick up a Hoyt Wilhelm Christmas Card earlier this year.
Ho Ho Hoyt!
Bruce Sutter sadly passed away earlier this year. When this card popped up on eBay in the wake of his death, I overpaid some for it, but not because he just died but because it was numbered 12/25 and so I would have overpaid for it anytime.
The rough and tough Charlie Hough!
Numbered 12/25 as well!
Last Topps Retired card for this post is a very merry Maz. Woo, that's a lovely card!
12/25 to boot!
Thanks Wes (and Amy)!
Bo hooked me up with some '92 Leaf black gold needs from a recent haul of his. Thanks, Bo!
Here's Ruby enjoying some of our recent inclimate weather.
K, guys, I know Baseball Card Breakdown had a down year-- not even nominated in the "Favorite Blogs to Read" category this year at Nachos awards, ouch!-- but I'm tryin to get on anti-anxiety meds that should hopefully help me get my shit together. Plus I may be "back to the office" in 2023, and honestly that would be good for the blog because the heyday of this blog was written during downtime at work, pre-covid. So we'll see.
Christmasy post part 2 is coming in a few hours with all the "holiday surprise" '91 Fleer doodles.
See ya soon, and Merry Christmas!
