I think Christmas is Over

Someone was nice enough to send me these 2 holiday cards as a bonus with one of my 1956 Topps team card purchases.  Now I can add another 2019 label to my posts.

I really didn't know what to do with them since I've gotten out of the modern card game.

So I started ripping them as I tend to do now with worthless cards that I don't need.

I figured that someone else might benefit slightly with one less of their favorite card available in the marketplace.  I know I'd be happy if every collector ripped a few hundred or even thousand 1987 Topps cards.  I heard that there were too many of them produced to even make a dent.  It sounds like an excuse.  They really knew how to collect cards in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.  In the 1980s and 1990s, collectors thought they knew better than their prehistoric counterparts.  Look how that turned out.  I'm too old to put them in my bike spokes, toss them against the wall, or carry them in my pocket.  So, I rip them...       

...and burn them.  Ah, what a sweet smelling oblation to the Lord.  Don't be a card worshipper.  Remove that idol from your life.  It cannot save you.  Don't be afraid to sacrifice a few.  Post it.
