Halloween Spooktacular

Here are some cards "dressed up for Halloween" (photoshopped to look weird).

- - ---o

Now it's time for a ghoulish pack skirmish.

2007 Topps Hollywood Zombies Trading Card Pack
1989 Topps GhostBusters II Trading Card Pack

Got these both in a recent combined-shipping eBay purchase. As for the Hollywood Zombies pack, the only interest I have is trying to hit a glow-in-the-dark card. And I've got 14 cards left to complete the Ghostbusters II set, so I'm hoping to pull at least one of those needs.

Heads-up, these Zombie cards are very gross. Proceed at your own risk.

A fine woman enjoying a glass of wine wins this round.

Here's a quick look at the backs. I thought it was fitting that this Hollywood Zombies card happens to have a Ghostbusters reference on the back.

Gotta go with sexy-times on the couch.

Wow, that "Drew Burymore" is disgusting. Gotta go with the boring logo card here.

The Lindsay seems to be a foil parallel. Sure, let's give a pity point for the shininess.

I'm not even gonna waste my time straining my eyes on that tiny text. The only Ghostbusters sticker I need at this point is #1, and sadly this is #3.

Ok, that George W. might be the absolute worst trading card of all time.

There is no winner here.

More Ghostbusters cards than Zombie cards. Hey, the gum looks ok.

*crunch crunch*

(I ate the gum. That might be the grossest part of the post to some of you!)

Final bone-chilling result?
I pulled zero glowing cards from the Zombies pack.
I pulled zero cards I needed from the Ghostbusters pack.

Well, that was a frightening waste of $3! Boo! All of these are available, so if you'd like to trade for any, please get in touch to take these off my hands. PLEASE! I don't care what you send me in return, just get these out of my house.

I figure it won't hurt to post my Ghostbusters 2 wantlist here:
Needs: 6, 28, 33, 34, 48, 52, 54, 68, 70, 72, 75, 76, 81, Sticker #1


World Series stuff!

Back in my World Series preview post, I totally forgot to include the Zack Greinke auto I've got. He nearly had himself a Game 7 to remember, but Houston took a chance on going to the bullpen instead of sticking with him out there. It didn't work out for them.

Congrats to my guy Stephen Strasburg on the Championship and being named World Series MVP! Proud times for SDSU alumni like myself.

OK, that's it for the Spooktacular. (I'm sorry I didn't finish my big "glow-in-the-dark cards" post in time [I had been planning on posting it today], but it'll be done one of these days.)
Happy Halloween!


  1. That was some cool stuff you did with the photos of the cards. Hope you can find some more glow in the dark cards for your collection. I will keep my eye out for some for you.

  2. That is a perfect example of why I can't tell people that I collect non-sports, I have to say "Some" non-sports. Cause that is a waste of paper. I'm disappointed in Topps for printing such trash, to be honest.

    I like the special effects you did at the start of the post. I really like the Musial look in particular.

  3. That Fabulous Four Ghostbusters card is awesome! Congratulations on your SDSU alums! They were talking about that on the radio yesterday morning. Very cool.

  4. If no one else has already claimed it, I'd be interested in the Slimer sticker.

  5. I need to chase down all of the Ghostbusters cards from the older sets for my collection. Still need to sit down and make a long list of needs for my inserts for the newer stuff.
