Organize some of my Marvel SkyBox cards and just realized I have allot of duplicates but missing others that I need to finish my sets. Anybody interested in trades or want to buy some? If you want to know which ones I have I can make a list. Also, I’m curious who does have a collection? #marvel #cards #tradingcards #SkyBox #SkyBoxCards #MarvelCards #ImpelCards #FleerUltra #94FleerUltra #95FleerUltra #FleerCards #94Flair #FlairCards #ComicCards #Collector #Wizard #Trad #forslae

Hey there! You have an awesome collection! Was wondering if you’re interested in trading? I’m very much interested in the Series 3 set. I’m still left with 1 Thing chase card and a few of them Team Up cards…

A rekindled obsession.

I remembered getting a stack of cards from some kid in class for $5. That stack contained bits and pieces of Marvel Universe Series 2, 3, 4, some X-Men cards and other junk. And for most of my Primary School years, I traded and bought more for my collection and was with it every single moment rereading the facts on the back of those cards and oogle on the art everywhere I went. That was how I got to know characters like Iron Man, War Machine, Quasar, etc. Sadly all of them were lost and I can’t remember where it all went somehow. It was this era that the X-Men cartoon shows were the shit.

Years later when I was in Secondary school, I started collecting again after stumbling upon comic shops. These are located near Braddell MRT, inside Bishan MRT station and one near my residential neighbourhood. I collected Marvel Series 4 cards as they were available. I was somehow in love with the base cards being jigsaw puzzle-ish. Fleer Ultra X-Men and Fleer Spiderman cards were my regular purchases too. Those cards are still with me but not the comics and seriously, I am facking pissed with myself for not taking care of them. Gone were my Spiderman comics (Maximum Carnage series, etc were amongst them), Spawn (I had the Spawn Bible) and others like X-Men, etc.

In June 2014 I stumbled upon my Marvel Series 4, X-Men and Spiderman cards when I was going through some boxes in my store room. That brought back many memories and somehow, made me want to have them again. I always liked the Marvel Series 3 card series for the art and the ‘space’ background. As such I bought a box from ebay. I still need some cards to complete, for all the series that I have.

Now I’m a proud punk in possesion of these Marvel Series 3, 4, Fleer Ultra X-Men and Fleer Ultra Spiderman trading cards. All the memories that comes with it, are priceless. Even the smell is nice. I’m planning to complete the Marvel Series 3, prototypes and all, and frame it up. Then I’ll proceed with the others. Series 3 is always my favourite amongst many.

How geeky/nerdy all this may seem, its nice to just re-live the moments where card collecting is a joy. Well it may seem like many individuals will shun on this as not cool or something (they have better ‘big brother’ things to do), I don’t give a shit.

I’m rambling all this in a sleepy manner after jotting down the cards I need for each series so that I could hunt them online or trade in the times to come. I apologise if this is too boring to you but who gives a shit anyways.

I love skateboarding. Yes I do. The fact that I wasted prolly 2-3 years being afraid after fracturing my foot, led me to do stupid stuffs, know stupid people and get involved in many stupid things. Though I’m like fucking 31 this year, guess its never too late to catch up on my skating. I’ve wasted too much time idling around.

If I could dedicate my skateboarding, I would dedicate it to my little boy Anaqi. For all that I’ve been through, the defeat and the losses, the biggest one in fact is not being able to be with that kid. And of course Abel, for being supportive and patient (I know I am rather difficult at times) and my bros (you guys know who you are).

Life is too short to get involved with crappy people and their low grade politics. I rather have fun with my board with the guys and be in crazy love with that little monster.

Props to Abel for accepting who I am and her patience, bros for all the good times and more to come. And a big FUCK YOU to ‘you yourselves know you deserve it’ asshole. Be it at work or whatever.

Like many working class citizens, I pay my taxes without hesitation. But at least spell my name right. Thanks to whoever you are.

Truth.

Truth is, one stands alone. If he or she is not, then he or she is lucky. For most of us, its the case of being in the dark and the only friend/guide is your mind and a flickering flashlight. How do you get there you may I ask. Truth is, it doesn’t matter. Because no one gives a shit what you did that landed you there. Impression sells and that you do not condone. That’s why you’re in that darkness that you’re wondering about.

I am now in that place, and I now realise that its not that bad here.

Its 2:30am and instead of sleeping, I rambling shit.

Brings back lots of memories. Marvel/Impel Series 3 trading cards are the shit. Not bad of a box. Few cards left to complete. 4 out of 5 holo cards are in it. Good shit! #geekingoutsaturday
