Fun in the Sun

Alright, I'm not entirely sure there's a sun outside.  But I think there is, somewhere underneath all that snow and clouds.  But after my last couple posts were bemoaning the state of my collecting interest, I thought it was about time something a little more sunny.

I'm pretty burnt out on a lot of aspects of the hobby right now.  But that doesn't mean there aren't cards out there that still bring a smile to my face.  I've fallen madly in love with the 1998 Donruss Signature set lately.  And looking at these cards, can you really blame me?

These two are actually from the '98 Preview set, which were inserted into packs of '98 Donruss.  Both these cards are some of the more common ones at 400 copies each.  The yellow borders are definitely unique, and give the set a distinctive look.

The set has been a lot of fun to search for.  I'm still holding my budget pretty firm so some of the bigger names are still absent from my collection.  But even on a bargain budget, I'm finding much of this set is relatively easy to track down.

And better yet - I'm having fun doing so!


  1. Nice looking cards.

    I hate those "tamper proof seals" some sellers use these days.

    1. I spent a good 5 mins trying to get them off before just giving up and scanning them as is. I'll probably have to cut it with an xacto knife to get the cards free at some point, but I always worry about a slip of the hand slashing the card.
