A Card Sheet I'm Right For

I always check out the magazine section at Half Priced Books. If certain daughter is with me, we first look for dog magazines, she loves dogs, and can identify just about any breed. If another daughter is with me, it's horse magazines, she's a cowgirl at heart. But for me of course, its old issues of SI for Kids (then I'll check for old issues of Rod & Custom, or National Geographic for vintage aviation ads).

Like I mentioned in the last post, I still have a subscription to SIK and enjoy getting the card sheets. I wouldn't go so far as to say I collect them, because, being a completest, that would mean I'd have to go back and fill in all the gaps to have a complete set. I don't want to do that. I just want to enjoy getting them in the mail and hoping for an unexpected Angels/Patriots player on the sheet, or a random athlete I find interesting.

Anyhow, a recent trip turned up 2 copies of an issue from this past baseball season:
The Red Sox cover from June of this year.

I was stoked because I knew what was in this issue:
Ohtani's SI rookie card!
I already have this sheet from my subscription, but it's always fun to find a few more. Maybe I'll dare to hand-cut one out.
The bottom copy is badly off-center, but that's okay, it still looks nice as a part of the sheet.


  1. Nice! I didn't realize he had one. How is it that SIK can get a license to print cards with team logos, but other companies can't?!!

  2. Nice find. I love SI for Kids cards. Gotta see if I have any Half Priced Books in my area.

    P.S. The Williams arrived yesterday! Very stoked to add this to my collection.
