Happy New Year! - nyyankeesfan28 - 12-31-2012 09:04 PM

Although I'm a West Coaster, it's about two hours until midnight for you East Coasters. I made my New Year's Eve fish tacos and my aunt from Massachusetts got her Chinese food, so here I am posting this thread. As it creeps up to midnight and everyone is focused on kisses, dropping mirrored balls, and singing Auld Lang Syne plus, this year, the fiscal cliff, I can't sing and have no one to kiss, so I'm here. Not even sure where I'm going with this post, by the way. Man, 2012 went by fast, I remember last New Year's Eve like it was yesterday. It was a good year, though, I guess. What is your favorite card you aquired in 2012? Doesn't have to be pack pulled or anything, just aquired by you. My favorite pack pulled card is my 2012 Elite Status Autograph of Cam Newton #7/10. My favorite card bought as a single is my first 1952 Topps card, an Allie Reynolds Black-Back BVG 3. What about you guys, and are you doing anything special for New Year's?

I'm doing the same thing I've done the past 11 years. I'm sitting at home watching tv with my wife and stuffing my fat face. One of those years(2005 or 2006, I don't remember wheny they came out and too lazy to look on Wikepedia) we sat at a WalMart to wait for a new shipment of the XBOX 360s when they first came out. That was exciting!

My favorite card that I bought would have to be my 1956 Topps Koufax. I didn't have any memorable pulls that I can think of. I don't bust too much stuff.

Happy New Year to all.

Sounds like me and the fish tacos, only no wife. Your Koufax is sweet! The Xbox 360 came out in '05, by the way. I had nothing better to do than look it up.

Happy 2013 my west coast Yankees Bro!
I spent New Year's Eve the way I've done for the last several years. My wife and I have sushi with the kids. Home by 9, she's asleep by 11, the little ones stay up till the ball drops and I watch Armageddon! until about 3am. This will be my 12th year in a row watching it .... I don't really know why I started but it has become my yearly tradition.
Favorite "pull" of the year is my signed Willie Mays card / coin from the Topps golden giveaway contest (if that qualifies as a pull)

(This is not my specific card, mine has a different #)
My favorite single purchased new card this year would have to be my 2012 Triple Threads relic of Evan Longoria that says "NOT EVA" I thought that was hilarious!

(Again not my card ... Mine is the same with a different #)

My favorite vintage single? I can't decide ... I love them all equally Smile

Happy New Year everyone!
2012 was a good year for me card-wise, got a bunch of cards that were on my Wantlist.
If I have to pick just one and being this is the Baseball forum I'd have to say it was the 1996 SPx Mike Piazza auto. No way I wouldn't pull one of these from a pack at 1:2000 odds.
