Elf Week: The Yellow Ones Don't Stop

JediJeff suggested another great line.
While on his date with Jovie he says to Zooey Deschanel's character "Watch out! The yellow ones don't stop" referring to taxis as they approached an intersection.

Now I could simply show off this 2014 Bowman Yellow parallel
 Numbered to 99 copies
 to wrap this quote up.

It's good to know where this line originated.

When Buddy first came to the city from the North Pole he was completely unaware of all modern traditions.
Like don't play in traffic or how to wavedown a taxi...
The slow motion of Buddy getting hit by the taxi legit made me cry from laughing so hard the first time I saw this scene.

It helped set the stage for "Watch out! The yellow ones don't stop"
The same can be said for this yellow printing plate.  This 1/1 yellow plate...
Didn't stop until this card was produced...
 Here is the yellow plate next to the yellow parallel

How did I do with that one Jeff?


  1. My mind is blown. You have a yellow printing plate used to make your yellow parallel? That's a really interesting collecting idea.

  2. I have a quote for you: "Francisco! That's fun to say! Francisco." Cutch was with the Giants for part of 2018.

  3. Yellow parallels for Pirates cards will always look awesome. The printing plate is a nice added touch.

    1. It's why 1991 Fleer is one of the best designs of all time.
