1988 Salt Lake Trappers

Here's a sampling of the 30 card set from BASEBALL CARDS, etc (Utah). This is the 1988 Salt Lake Trappers. Most notable of the individuals pictured are Bill Murray and his brother, Brian Doyle Murray. They were two of the owners of that year's team.

The cards themselves aren't quite standard. They stand 3-1/2" tall but only 2-3/8" wide. I purchased this set via mail order in 1989. I thought, "How cool is that, to have a Bill Murray baseball card?" Cool enough to get married that year.

Somehow, I don't think my wife married me because of that set.
