On to the packs...
1988 Topps American Baseball. I guess that these were manufactured and sold in the British Isles and across Europe.
And yes, another Giants card. No, I'm not trying to tick off the Night Owl. I'm trying to be a bigger man and subtly congratulate the San Francisco Giants for winning the World Series. I was rooting for the Rangers.
Wow. Topps went all out on the backs. Year stats. Life(time) stats. Autograph. Cartoon with trivia. And some "Talkin' Baseball" which explains some of the more common events about the game. Like a Triple Play.
Then a nice pack from the 2004 National Trading Card Day.
For some reason I assumed that they'd all be baseball cards. I was wrong. 12 cards in the set. 4 sports per set. 3 cards per sport. 1 set per pack. Easy to complete the set. Good photos, a nice mix of sports and players. Decent design. Clean. Good to get the kids hooked on.
Louis. It is a Lions card. They don't get much respect.
near my town.
And that's another post from the generosity that is The Collective Troll.
Still more to come. I've got some 1988 Score, 1994 Fleer and some hot Russian Space Chicks*.
I haven't opened the SpaceShots pack yet.
I don't know if there are any cards of Russians.
Or of Russian Women.
Or how attractive they are.
It is just a tease.
