The Paperclip

I had planned on saving this post for another day or two from now, but after the mailer from Fuji I couldn't wait. Seeing all those NASCAR cards got me even more excited about the return I got last week. Having some great luck lately when it comes to the raceways. I noticed that there was one of my top five favorite tracks missing from the collection. Wanting to fix this oversight I came up with an artelope design.

I've said it a few times, and this design shows why. Some of my all-time favorite artelopes have been the ones I send to racetracks. This one I decided to go with a simple checkered pattern commonly used for the finish line, checkered flag, and the winners circle. In the end I liked the way it turned out, and the results added to the excitement.

Two cards that remind me why I have started going after racetrack cards harder ever before. The design on the back is a great image of the track during a race. Another great thing is this now puts the collection at seven tracks. Currently there is one envelope pending, and another ready to be sent out. Hopefully I hear back soon from Kansas, and can then cross them off the list. Until then I hope you will enjoy this return from the Paperclip with me.

  1. are you coming up for the show on Saturday? If so let's figure out where and when to meet. I can show you a goodwill and a card shop not too far from the show.
