|I kinda really like 1986 Fleer for some reason. Probably because I have so few cards from it.. So it's like the "freshest" late-80s set for me.
|Bagwell rookies. That 91 Bowman isn't quite as bad as the subject of last week's drunken ramble-- at least, not until you look at the fingers.
|Most of these are cards that made me say to myself, "You know, I don't have any early cards of this guy. For a dime, why not rectify that?" And that's not really Omar Vizquel in that photo, right?
|I think I already had this card. Oh well, it's cool. I should limit my Carlos Delgado PC to only cards when he was a catcher.
|Some mid-80s Donruss. Who doesn't love Spike D. Owen? (The D stands for Dee.. like a Simpsons reference!) The dimebox had lots of Eric Davis' other rookies, but I only had eyes for the 85 Donruss. What a great looking card that is!
|No vintage from the dimebox.. a couple cards from 1981 are the oldest in this haul. I think I may have received this Fisk in a trade a few months ago. Oh well, look at those socks!
|I had gotten that '92 Leaf Frank Thomas off Listia a year or so ago, but the gold foil was in bad shape when it arrived. Might as well upgrade.
|Kellogg's for a dime each? Sure!..even if these aren't big names and this was the year they got lazy and didn't mess with making them have any 3D effect. (and ok, I guess there was some vintage if you count these oddballs.)
|I already have Lee Smith's '82 Topps. These 2 cards complete the RC trifecta.
|Here are some pre-rookies of guys who went on to fine careers.
|I wanted to add some more Smoltzes to my collection. The dimebox had a ton of his rookies, but I thought these 2 looked the coolest. (Really, his '89 Topps, '89 Fleer, and standard '89 Donruss are fugly cards.)
|Again, no vintage from this haul (ignoring the 73 Kellogg's), but these 3 cards will do the trick in a pinch.
|Finally, here're a couple early Vlad cards. That guy was a beast in his prime.
So there you go! 57 cards that set me back a five. No particular card to make you shoot your drink out of your nose, but I'm very happy with the transaction!
