Ok, I'm not impressed. 1987 was great - for Donruss and Fleer. Not so much with the fake wood-grain paneling around the card. In other words, I'm not off to a great start: Yay for Tracy Jones!
Nice - MUCH better! Other than the pre-war stuff I have (1909 to 1911), I don't own a SINGLE card from the 50's, 60's, or 70's (Although I do have a very nice Bud Padgett Remar Bread card - if you're a higher-end collector, you know what I'm talking about - I should do a post on that card - I think some of you might really like how I obtained it). I actually like this card - kinda neat:
Steve Avery, 1993. This card is going out the door to a Braves collector whom can be found on my sidebar. In fact, I think this was the last year that I bought cards before I quite the hobby.
Sigh....another 1987. Good god. I'd burn every card made in 1987 if I could - or at least find a way to grind them all into some kind of pulp and recycle the freaking paper. I remember Dempsey as a kid. Barely.
Salazar. From the 1988 set. Which I spent all my lunch money completing. I GAVE UP A LOT OF REALLY GOOD TASTING FUCKING CAFETERIA BURRITOS FOR THIS TOPPS SET. Ah, regrets...to live and learn. Never ever do a base Topps set again......
Stan Williams - much better. Kind of makes up for the 1987 Dempsey, BUT DOES NOT MAKE UP FOR MY LOST BURRITO FROM THE 1988 SALAZAR CARD!
Tommy Helms - you know, I've always had a fascination with the black bordered cards - I remember as a kid seeing this at card shows, but most were beat up or in bad shape because of the black border.
Card #8 (last card)
Sigh...I give up...I'm putting the rest of these stupid cards up on Ebay or for trade.
