After a long and stressful day, I'm low on both time and mental energy. So, here are two graded cards from the '70s that have been waiting a while now to see the light of day on the blog...
In the Topps release, the four teams that joined the NHL when the WHA folded were all combined onto a single card, which is also kind of cool in its own rite. I like that in the O-Pee-Chee release each team received their own dedicated card though.
This card is part of a renewed effort on my part heading into 2019 to better enjoy the cards I already have. A change in our household income is going to force me to make some adjustments, and a non-essential expense like baseball cards is the first thing trimmed out in these circumstances. I don't mind though, because I have so many amazing cards backlogged from my 10+ years of adult collecting that I've got plenty of content for the coming year even if I didn't buy a single new card.
For example, this Cepeda is being featured here for the first time, and I bought it back in February...of 2008. Yes, you read that correctly. Only took me a decade to get around to showing this $7.50 pick-up.
More on my upcoming adjustments to my approach to the hobby for the coming year in a future post. No time tonight. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by!

Cool logo card!
When I see Orlando I think of Ernie Banks on when tv pronouncing his last name Cepeder.
I plan on trimming my hobby budget in 2019 too. Both of my cars have reached double digits in age and although I've kept both in great running shape... it's only a matter of time before I need a new one. Plus I have a nice bank of saved scans... plus thousands of cards that haven't been scanned that are waiting to be blogged.
