No interest in this guy.
1990 Marvel #128 Journey Into Mystery #83
This card is from a different set, common this this series of posts. First appearance of Thor is nice. The back of the card gives the 1990 Overstreet NM price: $750. A CGC that earned a mere 3.5 sold for over $11,000 last week. To have a time machine...
There we go!
Back of the card says she is the granddaughter of Thanos. Looking up the character I can see that, yeah, my kids did have a Happy Meal toy of her, looking nothing like this, though.
Not enough room on the card means they’re doing it right.
The two sharing a moment of levity on the back of this one.
That’s 14 cards in a 12-card pack, can’t argue with that.

A few weeks ago I got an unexpected package in the mail from Larry the Sewing Machine Guy. I was about to ask readers to jog their memories about his blog, but it looks like I might not have to do that, as there is a post from a couple of days ago (along with some from 2020) after a long hiatus that began in 2012. Good to see him back!
Anyway, Larry heard that I was on the lookout for old top loaders, the grungy, tape-stained, nasty kind that you wouldn't dare display your cards in. I needed some of these because I have been shipping a lot of cards lately and my stock had begun to run low. (As an aside, I find it funny that COMC has even begun to post notices that they won't be shipping cards in top loaders unless requested because of a worldwide shortage. Strange dominoes fall following a global pandemic, I guess.) I opened the package to find a small assortment of the goods I was looking for. Along with them was a nice bunch of cards I guy like me would probably enjoy.

We've gotten used to shifting sports schedules over the past year, and Trade Me Anything is not immune from the same fate. This pleasant surprise arrived in the mail from Zpop earlier this week. Let's check it out.
