Inspired by another post

In the middle of my daily ritual, looking at my favorite blogs, I was inspired by Bo at Baseball Cards Come to Life to post a blog about my Pepsi and Coca Cola cards.  I love to collect at least one oddball card of each set.   I really don't try to collect a whole set of each oddball.  If you have any singles of any food, retailer, minor league card or other misc. logo on a card, please let me know and I'll be happy to trade.    Let's start with the Coke cards.

  4. I love food/drink issued oddballs -- didn't know a Hardee's set existed though!

  5. I've always been a Coke guy... and I do like the early 80's Coke cards. But when it comes to soda cards... it's gonna be hard to top the 1977 MSA Pepsi discs.

  6. Great stuff. Some day I should pick up a card from the '63 Pepsi Houston Colt .45s set, those are really nice looking cards, especially when they are completely intact (unperforated).


Sports Illustrated mini collections

 I've been entering my cards into TCDB for the last couple of months.  Most for sale or trade. I came across a box of SI that has not be...
