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.
