Christmas Pack #38

I have already started stockpiling blasters and packs for next Christmas.  I have decided that I will open a complete blaster or box, try making a set and then document what I got.  Opening a pack a day is not working with my other card activities and this thing called life.  I am going to continue with this project, until I get my den set up and can sort the cards instead of just piling them up.  
In this pack I had heard of everyone but Bob & Justine.  The Big Bopper had a big hit with Chantilly Lace, he perished in the plane crash with Buddy Holly and Richie Valens.  Bill Haley had what many consider to be the first rock and roll hit with Rock Around the ClockSmokey Robinson has solo hits and with the Miracles.  He just performed Sunday at the 2019 Grammy Awards.  Simply Red had multiple hits during the 80's.  Donna Summer, had many hits including an awesome rendition of one of my favorite songs, MacArthur ParkAndy Gibb, was the younger brother of the Bee Gees.  He died just five days after his 30th birthday from a combination of depression and drugs.  Dee Dee Sharp a hit with The Mashed Potato and in the disco era with a cover of I'm Not in Love.

Dang. The Gibb story is kind of depressing. Looking forward to seeing what blasters you'll be busting and sets you'll be building.

Sounds like a fun project. It'll be great seeing what you come up with.
