I mentioned the other day that I was going to touch every card I had in monster boxes and determine if it would stay or go. I didn't even mention office supply boxes, in which I found a cobra!
Yep, Dave Parker was hiding among paper clips and thumb tacks, in a top loader and ready to be removed and added to the other 18 cards I have from the '82 set. I figured if I can find a card there, the other 700+ shouldn't be that hard to find. So I added a want list for the '82 set today.
Meanwhile, I finally got around to scanning another page from the SNI set for a post; this page actually has 2 cards each from 2 of the more generous bloggers to this grandiose cause. Enjoy!

Still no Pirates, something that is "kind of" solved in page 12, you'll see when I post it in the next couple of days.
By the way, I decided to start the hockey version of SNI. The tab is up at the top, try not to hurt yourself when you roll your eyes. All the "rules" are there for your perusal, and don't be afraid to ask any questions. My objective is to post cards as they come in, 1 at a time, just to keep the blog rolling along.
This 5-6 post a month roll I've been on has got to stop. One way or another.
Thanks for reading, Robert
