This Helped Make it a Good Day

This morning was difficult.  Today we started fall sports.  Lots of kids didn't show up, others were missing paperwork and another group of them proved that they are not in shape.  Lots to do with this team in the next two months.

I certainly had a different attitude when I got home.  This card was waiting for me.  Now I have two cards from this set.  I don'e envision getting many more of them because they are out of my price range.  

*** update -- I get these cards so infrequently that I didn't even remember that I have two of these plus two proofs from the collection of an Xograph employee.  I don't know if the proofs are different than the cards issued in this set.  Is that where the distinction is with the card backs?  I will need to check this out.


I really should take the time to get a good image of this card on the blog.  It really does look great.

  1. Wowza. A 1968 Topps 3D card? Don't think I have even seen one of these in person. Congratulations!

  2. Awesome: That card.

    Not so awesome: The start of school sports.

    1. I'm at the point where I keep thinking "will this be my last year coaching?". I know that I've got many more years to work, but I'm not sure if I can coach during all of those years.

    2. I would think you have to do it because of the love of the particular sport. Have a few friends who coach various HS sports.. Definitely don't get compensated for the hours that are actually worked

  3. I know as a track coach that sometimes the only thing that brings me around after a tough practice or team problems is the sight of a padded mailer in the mailbox. If said mailer contained a '68 Topps 3D card, I think I'd be able to handle anything!
