back on april 1, i posted an april fool's joke regarding a new blog of mine focused on comic books. while i do still have a fair number of comics, i never intended to write about them on that blog. in the months since, i have instead picked up a few cards that are reminiscent of comic books, and i have no qualms about writing about them!
this is a 2022 donruss mookie betts "diamond marvels" insert
it may be the vector parallel, but i am not sure.
it certainly looks like a comic book cover, and an interesting touch by panini - the oct 92 date refers to mookie's birth (october 7, 1992). or maybe it's just a coincidence.
another betts comic card from 2022 is this one
bazooka comics, however, have definitely been a thing. i recently picked up another copy of this comic
speaking of scully, he was the topic of a recent release from the pop fly pop shop, and i was sure to buy a copy
showed off the awesome dave parker issue.
it's unfortunate that the scully comes with an error - his quote "it's a mere moment in a man's life between the all-star game and an old-timer's game" is left incomplete in the middle left. still, it's a great collection of quotes and i would encourage you to check out the site.
finally, i did pick up a more literal comic book card that crosses over from comics to cards in a different way than the items shown previously in this post
