    Just Call Me A Copycat

    One of the best things about reading all of your blogs... is reading about and checking out all of your cool cards. And every now and then, I'll see something so cool... I need to run out and find one for my own collection.


    That's what happened two weeks ago over at The Five Tool Collector. The Commish was showing off some of his card show purchases, including a pair of cards from the 1956 Topps Flags of the Worldset, which I had never seen these cards before. It was love at first sight.

    I headed over to eBay and COMC to see if Topps made cards for the United States and Japan. There were a bunch for sale on eBay, so I purchased the most reasonably priced copies I could find:



    Absolutely beautiful. The flag might be the centerpiece, but the background gives the card character by highlighting items from each country. Believe it or not, the backs are just as cool:


    How many trading card sets have you stumbled across teach you a foreign language? I'm also a huge fan of the random bits of information provided for each country. Not bad for being almost sixty years old, right? Plus did anyone notice that there are only forty-eight stars on the U.S.flag? Alaska and Hawaii weren't states yet.


    Thanks Bob! Without your blog, I might have lived my entire life without seeing this amazing vintage set. Hopefully you won't fail me or assign me detention for copying off of you.


    Happy Wednesday and sayonara!

    Thanks for the Japanese lesson... I'm embarrassed to say that I had to use Google Translator to help me with your symbols.
