Deciding on my favorite cards of the year was tough but determining my single most favorite of the year was easy - this Anfernee Simons card that came from Cards on Cards in February. I love this card. The emotion and background, which evoke playing ball on outside courts, are a big hit with me.
This 2018-2019 Upper DeckMarc-Andre Fleury card came to me in a random pack in April. Upper Deck really does hockey right and photos like this are a big reason why.
Baseball was much tougher to pick a winner but speaking of photos...this is a great shot of Atlanta Braves stud Freddie Freeman. Emotion is always something fun when caught on film well. This card came from a random pack of 2019 Stadium Club in September.
This Boba Fett came from a blaster of 2018 Star Wars Galaxy cards I opened in March. I really enjoyed the box but this card is a great rendering of one of Star Wars' iconic characters. I like this so much it was in the running for top card of the year. As is, it is a solid #2 and my favorite non-sport card of 2019.
I'm a big fan of the WWE Women's Division cards and this card is from a 2019 Blaster. Not a flashy card but I like how the Women's division has been spotlighted and this is just a cool card to me and my favorite wrestling card of the year.
Another card where the photo sells it. Snow cards are already a big plus and this one is just too cool with the snow being a prominent part of the picture, the white Colts' jerseys and the camera catching the look in the eyes of T.Y. Hilton. This was from a random pack of 2018 Donruss Football back in May.
And last but not least this Dale Earnhardt Jr. is tops among my NASCAR pulls this year. This great shot of Jr. looking all intense came from a pack of 2013 Press Pass in March. This is a fun exercise I really enjoy. It's fun looking back at posts from the year and even more fun, and tough, narrowing down my top cards.
Everyone have a safe and Happy New Year. I look forward to more fun with cards in 2020.
