2020 Card-vent Calendar: December 24

December 24, 2020:
1970 Topps #365 Zoilo Versalles
With a new year just around the corner, maybe we all have a thing or two we could learn from Zoilo here.  He looks a bit unsure, and definitely has his guard up.  Try to hover somewhere between healthily skeptical and cautiously optimistic.  We do not know what the future has in store for us, but all of us who have made it this far have proven that we can handle anything.
My advice: Give yourself one thing per day to look forward to.  
Just keep plugging along, you are doing a great job.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happiness in whatever holiday you choose to celebrate.  I also want to give a special thanks to @porterman20 for retweeting darn near every post this Card-vent, and to Fuji, who left a comment on darn near every Card-vent post.  It really means a lot to me.

Keep your eyes on this space.  The plan is to keep going strong through the end of December with a new feature called "Pre-Opened Packs," and once the calendar changes you'll get to see the top pulls of the year.  Maybe one of them won't be a wrestling card.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas! It has been a pleasure reading your blog regularly again.

  2. A. Pretty sure I learned about Zoilo from his 1982 Kmart MVP card (just a few years ago).

    B. After reading "cautiously optimistic", it immediately took me back 45 minutes ago when we were watching a Fleetwood Mac concert on Amazon and "Don't Stop" came on. That song automatically makes me think of President Clinton... but I feel like it totally fits our current situation too.

    C. Glad to hear the posts are going to continue. Card blogs are a huge part of my interest in the hobby. And your blog would routinely bring a smile to my face.

    D. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you and your family.
