Merry Cards-mas

I'm going to write this post for the second straight year. When I published it last year, the blog was almost brand new and even a full year in, it boasts the lowest page view count of any post I've written. However, 'tis the season and Christmas is a treasures time in my house. Perhaps even more so this year, having just been blessed with a happy and healthy daughter just one week ago. So, here is take 2, a post sharing my Santa card collection.

I absolutely love that Pro Set Head Coach card showing Santa trimming the tree with some cardboard! I'm happy to have the rest of these in the collection, but most don't stand out like that first one. Though, Santa's Heisman pose is pretty cool. I've picked these up since the last post. In fact, I found a few of these in one if the card show nickel boxes I wrote about previously.

Seems that there a good many cards of the Christmas legend from his playing days. I suppose that Pinnacle card doesn't really count, but if you are a Cowboys fan, you've gotta dig it. Well, it's got presents, bows, and Santa hats, so it's close enough.

This one is really up my alley. It's the 'action variation' here capturing the man doing what he does best(even if he's having a bit of a tough time here).

The final card I'll share in my Christmas post this year shows the man making his (check)list and checking it twice! It's a pretty decent front, but the back is what really gets me on this one.

True, this is deep for something written on a sports card. It really is a wonderful reminder that we should treasure who and what we have and to try to take a moment to show some kindness to others.

Anyway, thanks for reading and to all who celebrate it, I wish you a Merry Christmas!
