This post, like most of the others on this blog, is going to be very simple.

This is card #8 from the 93-94 Premier set,  It is the gold parallel that features Kevin Miller.

This is the 8th card in a stack of cards from the 2018-19 SP retail only set, a blue parallel featuring Sam Steel of the Ducks.   I wish I had bought more of it when it came out a month or so ago...

This is the 8th card in a stack of hockey cards on my desk that need to be added to the TCDB.  This 95-96 Select Certified Gold card features Kelly Hrudey, one of my favorite intermission analysts on the Hockey Night In Canada telecasts.

This is the 8th card in a stack of baseball cards that is right next to the stack of hockey cards.  It also needs to be added to my trade list on the TCDB.  2017 Opening Day #75 featuring the Millville Meteor, Mike Trout.  Maybe the player of this generation?

This was the 8th card in a tin of jersey cards that I have sitting in my card closet.  06-07 Sweet Shot featuring Luc Robitaille of the Kings.  I don't know how I was so lucky to obtain the last card in the print run of 200.

This is the 8th card I own of the 1962 Topps set, featuring Dick Donovan of the Indians.  This is the only set that I have started that currently does not boast a want list either on my blog, or on the TCDB site.

This is the 8th card I have in a hard 100 count plastic case that features nothing but Joe Sakic duplicates.  100+ unique Joe Sakic duplicates.   Yes, I've been collecting Burnaby Joe for a very long time.

This is the 8th and final card of this post, my favorite $1 box find of all time.   Don't care about the heavy crease in the center, or the soft corners.   I was able to purchase a '67 Topps Ernie Banks card for a dollar, and that is the story I will always be able to tell.  It sits at the base of the monitor I look at every time I write a post.

You may have noticed a pattern on this post...today is the 8th anniversary of the day I started this blog.  I've slowed down quite a bit for the most part over the past 3 to 4 years, but when I get the urge, I still enjoy writing and sharing cards with everyone.   That's one of the big reasons I still do this. 

I enjoy it.   It's my hobby.

Thanks for reading, it is appreciated!!

    A dollar for that Ernie Banks card is awesome!
