My Top 6 New Year’s Themed Cards

Whenever a holiday rolls around, I like to see if there are any cards floating around The Hobby which contain the theme of that specific day.  I thought I might have a difficult time with New Year’s, but it wasn’t that hard.  Christmas by far is the holiday that has the most trading cards.  After digging around, I was able to come up with my Top 6 New Year’s Themed Cards.

#1 – 1941 War Gum #24: Gum, Inc created a ton of cards between 1938 and 1941 that dealt with WWII.  This one depicts the Luzon Repels New Year’s Push.

#2 – 1999 Upper Deck Encore 2K Countdown: These were randomly inserted into packs of ’99 UD Encore Baseball.  They fall 1:11 packs.  The word “countdown” has been used a lot with cards.

Photobucket

#3 – 1995 Skybox Impact Countdown: This is a 10-card set that features all horizontal cards.  They fall 1:30 packs.

Photobucket

#4 – 2002 Atomic Countdown to Stardom: The Atomic brand is no longer around, but Pacific did create some great looking inserts.  These fall about 1:11 packs.

Photobucket

#5 – 1997 Pacific Fireworks Die Cuts: What would New Year’s be without fireworks?  These condition sensitive die cuts look cool and fall 1:73 packs.

Photobucket

#6 – Dick Clark 1993 American Bandstand: It wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without America’s oldest teenager.  This card comes from an American Bandstand set.

As you can see, there are a bunch of cards that you could say have a New Year’s theme.  I’m sure there are a ton more, especially from products such as “Turn Back the Clock”.  I could see Upper Deck including a piece of the ball that drops in New York City into their Piece of History product next year 🙂
