Ultimate Super Jumbo!!!


Ever notice how the word "literally" has become the keyword for anyone who greatly exaggerates something?   "I literally ate 100 donuts this morning" No you didn't.  "This is literally an ultimate super jumbo pack" No, it's not. 

That's Melo back when I actually liked Melo.  Who doesn't love Kemp?  Stay in school, kids, so you can meet Jeff Turner.

I've decided that the next time I have to name a child, I'm buying a pack of basketball cards:

Pooh, Fat, Negele, Sarunas, Spud, and Askia.  $5 says it's pronounced "Axia". 

Maybe I could name a kid Zarley Zalapski.  At least the dude in the middle has a cool last name (Emma).  And the poor guy on the right has a last name for his entire name.

Only 9 football cards in the 2 packs, so I scanned them all.  Lucky you.

'82...not bad for Dollar Tree.  That Finest card is fantastic.  That last guy looks like a good baseball player, but the stats say otherwise...hmmm. At least his Baseball-Reference page looks cool:

Well, I guess that was fun for $2.

Don't those contain a form inside where you can send in xx wrappers and a check for a few bucks for a random auto?
