Hobby Challenge: Make fun of your collection

Hobby Challenge: Make fun of your collection


Poking around our hockey forums yesterday afternoon, I stumbled across a thread entitled "HILARIOUS hockey cards! Post em here!" Member tha penguin opened the online floodgates and encouraged fellow collectors to join in on the fun by posting scans of their favorite funny cards with interpretive commentary.

The concept of comedic cards isn't necessarily newfangled. The guys over at Baseballcardbust.com have been at it for quite some time, and we actually run a segment entitled "Comedic Cards" in Beckett Sports Card Monthly on a semi-regular basis. But we're curious to see what collectors can dig up and dig at from their own binders.

THE CHALLENGE
- Go through your personal collection and your favorite comedic cards (intentionally funny or otherwise).
- Come up with a caption or comment with your creative interpretation (keep it clean).
- Post your submission(s) in the appropriate forum (below) or email them to readersrock@beckett.com.
- Football
- Hockey
- Baseball
- Basketball
- Racing


THE REWARD
We'll review the submissions and consider them for print along with your name/username in the appropriate Beckett magazines. Depending on the participation and interest level, the opportunity for hobby prizes could pop up in the near future. In the meanwhile, pull out those binders and start scouring for those chuckle-makers.

(still) collecting VINCE YOUNG!

I like Wally's uni-brow.

Collecting all the Ron Hextall Cards especially those
pesky 1 of 1 cards and other low print runs.
I am also collecting Bernie Parent, Pelle Lindbergh,
Antero Niittymaki & other Flyers goalies.
