An Offer Too Good To Refuse!

I've always had collecting goals when it comes to this hobby for as long as I can remember. Back in 2011 when I started this blog I had set some goals that, for the life of me, I can't remember! Guess the mind is the first thing to go. Anyway, I have goals to keep me on track so that I don't wander all over the collecting universe and can feel like I can accomplish something which, in turn, allows me to not get burned out of the hobby. This past week, however, I got a little sidetracked. I've been on the fence for a long time about whether or not I should collect the Kahn's Cincinnati Reds team sets. Fellow Reds collector Red Cardboard did a weeks worth of Kahn's post last year and that got me thinking. Each year Kahn's distributes these at the ballpark to the first somethin thousand in attendance. I had always liked the sets for their simplicity and being an "oddball" type of set. I mean come on, who doesn't like weiners? Besides, Kahn's Big Red Smokeys where always a staple at my family reunions. Where was I? Oh yeah, so a few days back I came across a listing for thirteen different Kahn's Cincinnati Reds team sets 1988-1997, 2002-2003. I decided to put a bid in since that starting price was equal to a blaster of cards and to my surprise I was the only bidder for the lot. I couldn't be happier to add over 300 new Kahn's cards to my collection. I'm not quite sure yet if that makes me a winner...or a weiner.


  1. Nice find. People on ebay are usually asking for ridiculous money for those.

  2. Congratulations on that purchase. I hope you'll post a few of these up on your blog, so the rest of us can enjoy them too.

    1. Will do Fuji. Once I can get them scanned I'll post them.
