Who doesn't enjoy a good checklist card?
Okay, okay, I'm sure some of you aren't big fans, and you might even say that the only thing a checklist does is take up space. And that's totally fine.
But as an '80s kid, I grew up with checklists. And I did mark them up. Look!
The whole idea brings back a lot of nostalgia—so much so that I created and printed out checklist cards for each series of my customs. (Front and back shown):
The ink color for each card matches the ink color I used on the back of each custom card for that particular series.
Because they're checklists, though, and didn't exactly require enormous amounts of design effort on my part, I didn't want to offer them for sale on my Bonanza or eBay stores.
However, Bonanza has a cool feature:
Sellers can create and offer "freebies" in their stores. Simply put, if a buyer makes any purchase—even just one item—they can choose a designated freebie from the seller's store and add it to their cart, no charge. (One freebie per checkout.) I figured this feature would work perfectly for checklist cards.
So from here on out, if you purchase a custom card from my Bonanza store, go right ahead and add the corresponding freebie checklist to your cart.
If you buy from my eBay store, just send me a message saying that you'd like a checklist card and I'll add it to your envelope.
And if you already have some of my customs and would like a checklist card just for the heck of it, leave a comment below and I'll get one out to you.
Once you receive the checklist, you can pretend you're a little kid without any awareness of card value and mark it up all you want. It'll be just like old times.
And it brings a question to mind:
How many of you collectors have ever used a pen or pencil to mark up a checklist during your childhood days in the hobby? Do you still have any of those marked-up cards?
