Captain Marvel is Back!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.

It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.

On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!

Brie Larson

The Super actress will be a HUGE part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the next few years.

Her character, Captain Marvel, was summoned at the end of the latest Avengers movie.

But she has also helped saved people in other films she has been in.

In the suspense psycho thriller "Room", Larson plays the role of a young woman who was kidnapped and forced to captivity.  She raises her son and after over a decade confined to a single room in a shed she devises a plan to save herself and her son from the captor that took her when she was just a teenager.  It is an imcredible performance in the film by Larson.

In the upcoming film Captain Marvel we already know that the film takes place in the 90s.

Of course this would be hard for Larson to correctly portray and she was born in 1989.

Topps used the 1989 design several times in 2014 and 2015 for their Archives release and also as a mini insert set.  The set was also given a chrome version...which lead to Superfractors.

I love the pink and black backs of the 1989 set.   I remember opening up so many packs from 1989 and reading those backs over and over again.

(This is just the regular base back.  I chose to show this as the scan made it difficult to read the text through the BGS case)
Steelers got an important game today.  They need to Avenge their embarassing tie with the Cleveland Browns from Week 1.



  1. That is an awesome superfractor!

    I didn't know who Larson was before Kong Skull Island, but I liked her.

  2. I'm not sure if it's awesome or bizarre that she is named after cheese. I'm leaning towards awesome.

  3. Cutch, not sure if you've completed the lineup for last few days, but I'm watching Halloween Wars and suggest you Google "Leanna Vamp."

  4. Marvel has me hooked. I don't read the comics, but I love the movies. Can't wait to see how Captain Marvel fits into this puzzle.

  5. Great post, except for the part of the Steelers avenging their tie against the Browns. That didn't need to happen!

    1. It did tho, especially in remembrance of the tragic shooting that occurred in the city a few days ago.
