Exactly one week ago Dinged Corners offered up a challenge that many of you tackled quickly. For me, since I am "slow", have been called "a dollar short and a day late" many a time in my past, and just got busy with cleaning, organizing, and redecorating my home (it is for sale now and today was the first Open House)I am just getting to this challenge today.
But nonetheless here goes. The challenge was to pick a binder and find six cards in that binder that made you "happy" in 30 seconds. For those of you who did this, I don't have to tell you that 30 seconds goes quick.
My first challenge was to pick what binder. I could have easily picked my almost complete Topps 1970 binder, or any of my Chicago Cubs binders or my newest binder with the 1995 Cardtoon set or even the 1991 binder I put together for my daughter. All of which would have made for finding six "happy" cards easy. No instead I choose a binder I don't look at much; a miscellaneous binder of stars and set out to find six "happy" cards quickly.
For me, one of the first words I think of when someone says "happy" is smile. So I set out to quickly find six cards that had a smile. Here are my six "happy" (smiling) cards:
Bo Jackson; 1991 Upper Deck # 744
Kirby Puckett, 1993 Topps # 200
Ken Griffey Sr., 1988 Donruss # 202
Frank Thomas, 1993 Leaf Hotshots # 77
Barry Bonds, 1992 Upper Deck # 134
Ozzie Smith, 1990 Post # 6 of 30
So there you have it, my 6 in 30 "happy" cards . . . a nice challenge . . . better late than never.
