Just Another Cyber Monday - Toyota Owners 400

Today's NASCAR race was the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. Danica Patrick started in the 21st position, and worked her way up to 18th place for the finish. It was her second Top 20 finish for the 2017 season. She stayed in 29th place in the points standings for the year, tied in points with Michael McDowell but probably losing some kind of tiebreaker.

In other news, Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced that he will retire at the end of this season. It seems that, for me, there aren't a lot of familiar names in the races anymore, with Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, and Dale Jr. all out or on the way out.

Panini's Black Friday, Father's Day, and National card show sets are pretty popular and you see quite a few cards from them posted and listed, but the Cyber Monday sets kind of fly under the radar. I guess there just aren't a lot of people spending Cyber Monday shopping in Panini's online store relative to the number of people who qualify to obtain packs of the other products. I picked up this 2016 Panini Cyber Monday base card of Danica Patrick at some point in the last few months. The background on the card has a circuit board motif, to emphasize that this is a product that celebrates e-commerce. It has the same photo, front and back. Unfortunately, Danica isn't wearing her America-themed shoes, which are pretty flashy. I heard her mention in a video that she thinks they are cool, and that having some neat shoes makes them better for donating to charity auctions and the like.
