Biggest pick up of the year was 2 Dark Shadows Philly Gum unused display boxes along with 2 unused Barnabas rack pack header cards. Got some nice pulls from Marvel Black Diamond boxes as well. Looking forward to DC CZX in early January 2022.

The best thing was being able to attend the Philly Non-Sports Card Show again. It was great seeing so many friends again in a nice, new setting.

Shows being a thing of the past now it seems i get most of my cards from ebay sellers or trading and dealing with other collectors in the hobby.

Best finds this year have been a set of Bassett UFO cards, Twin Peaks base and chase and a War of the Worlds promo card which research has shown maybe the only one in existance.

Looking forward to the new Hammer sets from Unstoppable which are just starting to come out now.

Come, it is time for you to keep your appointment with The Wicker Man.

The Chicago show was a lot of fun. There were a good number of vendors and I got to visit with friends and new faces.

Earlier in the year I worked on and completed some Star Wars sets. Later in the year a GOT Inflexions base set with expansion cards was completed.

Mandy Rose, never heard of her, but I like her anyway!

I made one good deal so far this year! Sold a card for some cool cash!

Best thing for me was the continued excellence of Elaine and Tony Perna's sketch sets . Can't believe it's been 10 years since the first Classic Mythology set .

Also bought my first cases in four years with the new Hammer set from Unstoppable , there is a base set for you Wolfie Smile although when we will be able to meet up so I can give it to you is anybody's guess Frown

Picked up the majority of my autograph cards this year on three titles, Picard, Women of Star Trek Art and Images and of course Game of Thrones, with a smattering of Bond. While my buying time went down, I somehow still seemed to have spent enough money on cards. Big Grin

Being able to once again attend shows was my highlight here in Canada.Had some good sales on a couple of cards.

The majority of my International purchases have been from dealers via Kickstarter campaigns although I did get sets from Elaine and Tony Perna. UK cards have come from either Unstoppable or Ebay nothing really outstanding. My favourite set was a mini master Upper Deck James Bond set.

I really had to cut back this year but I still picked up some old promos and some cards from the late 60's/early 70's. I found an unopened pack of G.I. Joe (Impel, 1991) prototypes that Bill DeFranzo was looking for years ago - not sure if he ever found one. I got an unopened pack of the Detective Comics 1000 Decade Collector Cards and an oddball pack of Dinocardz cards given out at Dairy Queen. Also received two Blue Angels sample (promo) cards. I sold a few extras too.

It's been a decent year collecting-wise as I've managed to finish off several vintage sets such as TV Westerns, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Barris Kustom Cars - Series 1 and 2, C.B. Dictionary, Truckin', Way Out Wheels, and Funny Valentines "A Set" just to name a few. I've also finished Waves 1,2,& 3 of the promotional Marvel Legends sets from Game Stop and I'm now up to 60 different DC Multiverse cards from the McFarlane action figure line. I've added lots of great Kickstarter sets as well and I'm still waiting for a few more to come in - I can't hardly wait to receive my Ultraman cards from Richard Parks!

Added several Crystal sketches to the collection. Best was someone who pulled one on ePack and immediately thought of me for it. That's the kind of community we have with non-sport cards.

I picked up 2 wonderful Andy Price sketches from the WOST release for my personal collection. Also, I FINALLY got an Elizabeth Allen autograph from The Twilight Zone. It was a good year!

I picked up a few Marvel Endgame cards that aren't exactly rare, but aren't as common as I thought.

I find myself gradually becoming more and more bored with the releases from the bigger companies so I've been drifting to the smaller ones. The purchase I've been most excited for this year has been Ultraman Series 1 from RRParks. Though I'm still waiting to receive the cards so the excitement continues to build. Next year I'm looking forward to Ultraman Series 2, Creepshow from Fright-Rags, and possibly Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone from Rittenhouse (if they come out in 2022).

I’ve been entertained by the rising profile of Marvel cards over the last year. Even seen a few dealers at smaller shows have them in their display cases. Luckily, not all of the Marvel cards has seen crazy increases in prices so I’ve been able to add a few to the collection.

I’m looking forward to Upper Deck’s AEW wrestling cards. Pretty sure when UD makes PMGs of those AEW wrestlers it will get nuts! A close second is Panini WWE especially when Prizm arrives.

That’s awesome! Hopefully there will be more shows to go to!

Mandy Rose recently went to NXT and became the champ!

That’s great to hear! Hopefully your collection will continue to grow in 2022 Thumb Up

As of late, this past year international collectors have to pay a lot more for there cards (UK and Europe) .

Its been hard to get those cards of my wish list.

It has gone crazy on shipping costs + taxes etc.

I was able to pick up some nice Star Wars widevision sketch cards and a few autographs I needed for the pc. Hoping to grab a few of the new Star Wars stellar autos in 2022

A hightlight of 2021 for me was trading with fellow Card Talk members to finish some sets. I also was happy with the newest Star Trek releases.
