Since my job keeps me on the road a lot, I pass a lot of Dollar Trees along the way. Lately they've had packs of the 2015 Panini Americana set and I've bought a few trying to complete the 73 card set.
They are really bland looking but since I had a huge crush on Paula Abdul in the 80's, I'm not really noticing it on this card.
Like most Americana releases, it features a lot of people that I'm not familiar with. Unfortunately, thanks to my wife's love of reality shows, I'm quite familiar with her.
Next to Van Halen, Motley Crue was my favorite band in high school. I find it funny that they consider Vince Neil a musician...
...but Coolio is a rapper. I knew he wasn't a musician.
I did manage to score a couple of autos from the random packs I picked up. I correctly assumed that this was the daughter of Dr. Oz.
I also correctly assumed I had no idea who either of these two were.
I am however, missing one card. Card number 7 which is Aly Raisman.
Pardon me for a second while I find out who this is.
Turn out she's a gymnast that grew up about an hour's drive from me. Well, that was embarrassing.
So if anybody out there is doing this set and has a dupe of Aly, I'd like to trade for it. I also have a lot of dupes as well.
Hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
