Trader’s Backlog: The Marvelous MZentko
This rad card on the right is actually a sticker insert from the 1986 Fleer Mini set, and it is cool as hell. I’m really digging the background, and I may try to use it on some All-Star themed customs or something like that. We’ll see what the inspiration turns into, or if I even remember it by the time I get around to more customs.
Here’s some mildly uncommon 90s goodness, with a 1994 O-Pee-Chee (a great looking little set) and a 1996 Collector’s Choice Silver Signature parallel. Both were nice additions.
We’ll close out with some vintage – both of the authentic and replica varieties. The Dan Coombs on the left ought to look familiar – he was featured in one of my TTM recap posts from last year. In fact, this card replaced the ’69 Coombs in my team binder which I’d sent off for that very autograph. The Alou comes from ’02 Upper Deck Vintage, a gloriously blatant ripoff of 1971 Topps. Gotta love a black bordered card on proper cardstock!
Like I said, there are many more of these to come, but I’m determined to get caught up on this blog and make up for my previous neglect. I’ll try and make sure to sprinkle some non-catchup content in here, though. I’ve got several more post ideas at the ready outside of these.

I really liked the UD Vintage sets, but the product got easily lost in the shuffle and played second fiddle to Heritage. I think if UD had integrated retired player autos ala Heritage the product would have been a lot more successful than it was.
