Both films feature uplifting and rocking soundtracks.
I am not the huge fan of Transformers that I was when younger, but the scene of Optimus Prime dying still gets me misty.
Karate Kid however is a different story. Thanks to the Netflix series, Cobra Kai, I have fallen completely obsessed with every detail from the original movie and it's sequels, reboots, and current TV series.
This week I will be looking at my Andrew McCutchen collection and connecting items to this kicking franchise.
Much like some of my other themed weeks or the month long SaveSecondBase event, every item will tie into the theme in some way.
To kick it off here is a 2017 Topps Throwback Set commemorating the 1984 design in honor of players' weekend.
Everything about Danny's ability to overcome a new setting and bullies appealed to me when I finally saw it in grade school.
I chose this card, because it was the last Topps Throwback online set that featured Cutch in a Pirates uniform. Much like Daniel Larusso's character moving from a familar East Coast setting in Newark, New Jersey, following the 2017 season Cutch was on the move out west to California.
The colors of black and yellow match the colors for Cobra Kai.
I fricking love that show....
I'll talk a little about that show tomorrow.
