Card of the Day: 1997 Grolier ER Trading Card


This may seem a little out of the ordinary for a “Card of the Day” post, but sometimes its good to go outside the box.  Tonight on NBC, the long running show ER will be airing its final episode after 15 years, and I will be there to watch it.

When the first episode debuted to the public on September 19, 1994, I was in 3rd grade, and had a strick 9:00 p.m. bedtime.  When I reached middle school, I discovered the show by watching reruns in the morning during the summer.  After watching the first show, I  instantley became a fan.  I even got to see it more when I had multiple foot surgeries and needed to stay home from school.  As I got older I was staying up later and finally could watch the show in primetime.  I guess I can relate to the show since I have been in and out of the hospital so much in my life.  By far, ER will always be my favorite T.V. show.  I enjoyed watching all the drama and learning about the background of the characters.  It will be sad to see it go.

As for this trading card, it was made in 1997 by Grolier.  Its card number D-11 in this educational card set.  They measure 4×6″ and could only be obtained through the mail.  These can easily be picked-up for $5.00.
