I remember the 1991 Score

I don't know why but I have always liked the 1991 Score. Like I have probably said before, I used to work construction in the early 1990's. I was working in a town in western Kansas, the town had a card shop. Every night after work I would go to this card shop. Not every night just the nights I got off early enough to get there before they closed. Anyway, I bought several boxes of the 1991 Score. I transferred to another company, and over a year later I was at a card show. The dealer that ran the card shop out in Kansas seen me and remembered me. He said, "I remember you! What happened to you?" I replied., " I transferred to another company." He remembered and said, "You still collect Score?" I always thought this story was funny, as I never thought of myself as a Score collector.

It's funny which dealers remember you. I had a run in at a card show with a dealer a few years after his card shop had closed. He remembered both me and my friend and offered to give each of us a bundle of cards, even though he wasn't selling at that show.
