Last night I had the pleasure of seeing my all-time favorite band, Pearl Jam, play live at one of my favorite places on the planet, Fenway Park! I can't think of a better way to spend a warm summer evening than that.
The guys have played Fenway Park four times now, twice in 2016 and twice this past week, and I have been fortunate enough to see all four shows. Why am I bothering to mention this on a card collecting blog, though?
Pearl Jam and trading cards, two of my greatest loves, combined into one product. Let's see the cards...
took its inspiration from 1991 Topps baseball, this time it's 1990-91 Hoops basketball! A simple design to replicate, one that's instantly recognizable to most collectors, and a set that harkens back to the band's early days. Seems like a perfect choice to me.
stand-up bass as the band treated the crowd to one of my personal favorites last night, Nothingman from their Vitalogy album. Something about hearing tens of thousands of people sing at the top of their lungs in unison gets me every time.
Well, that's all I've got for today. I've got the day off from work, but I hear it's supposed to be about 175 degrees (we like to exaggerate here in New England), so I'm probably going to nurse off this hangover sorting cards in the air conditioning and listening to records.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed this mix of trading cards and America's greatest rock & roll band!
