BurnCardBurn — 1987 Topps — 800 Count Box — Watch This – Sweet !!!!

Ok it’s been a while since I posted a burn video. I have been busy moving and now that I’m settled in it’s time to get back to this project. This video is from my old house. You could say I dug it out of the archives. My new house has a gas fireplace so going forward I’ll be looking for new ways to burn cards.

I acquired this 800 count box of 1987 Topps Baseball cards on ebay.  It was advertised as a box of commons so I didn’t spend too much time checking them out. 

The burn went well but I would have liked for the cards to be fully burned. Next time I’ll start the fire with a smaller set of cards or some kindling wood.

With this 800 card burn we cross well into the 1000 card mark for cards burned and are quickly approaching 2000.  Let me know what you think.

On the Move

Well, I recently sold my house and will be moving to some new digs in the next couple days. Unfortunately the new home doesn’t have a wood burning fireplace so I’ll need to get even more creative this project — don’t worry I’ll be moving full steam ahead.
 
I’m looking forward to taking this project to a whole new level over the upcoming months. For today’s post: a tribute to where it all got started. I’ll miss you fireplace.

BurnCardBurn Update 5/26

So when I started this project I was focused on burning 1987 Topps baseball cards in my fireplace. That hasn’t changed but I’ve found a couple ways to branch out and continue the spirit of BurnCardBurn:

  • Mustache Cards— For these mustache cards I find a 1987 Topps baseball card with a clean shaven mug and give them an awesome looking mustache. There are all kinds of styles from the watson to the santana . There are some more inbetween and even more styles coming.
  • Road Rash Series — This is a very limited series and is about our favorite 1987 Topps baseball cards going out for a run or a car ride and the chaos that ensues.
  • Power Tools — Power Tools is a new series with only one post currently. But this takes the BurnCardBurn Project to a whole new level. Check it out.

I’ll be adding more burncards to the above categories as I continue my quest towards restoring respect for 1987 Topps baseball cards.

If you’ve got ideas for more categories I’d love to hear them.
