1971 Topps #118
In the spirit of Black Friday... this post is dedicated to fans of black bordered sports cards. I'm a little tired after attending my first San Jose Sharks game of the season, but to make up for the lack of words... I have provided you guys with some of my favorite songs that contain the word "black" in the title.
So pick a song, press play, and check out some chipped borders:

There are plenty of other black bordered sets out there... especially since Topps insists on creating black bordered parallels for almost every set they produce. I made the decision to leave them out... because there were just too many to scan. And there are a few that I just don't have any examples of... most notably the 1962 Topps football and 1986/1991 Toys 'R Us Rookies baseball sets. I'm a huge fan of both of these designs, but couldn't find any laying around.
I'm sure I also have some black bordered memorabilia cards or autographs, but most of that stuff is stored at my parent's house. I do have this scan saved on my hard drive:

Okay... time to head to bed. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving with their loved ones. And...
Did anyone hit the stores and take advantage of the Black Friday deals out there?
As I mentioned earlier in the post, I decided to surround myself with thousands of people... but it wasn't at any malls or shopping centers. I was at the San Jose Arena watching this:
Happy Friday and sayonara!
