Baseball Wit Outwitted Me

1989 1990 Baseball Wit
Orel Hershiser (card # 1 - No Number variation)

I always thought that this set was from 1989. I was looking at my OH wantlist this morning and discovered that it is from 1990, according to the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards.

Now why would I think that it was from 1989?  Look at the copyright info on the back of the card.

Silly me.

I've already moved the card in my binder to the correct year.  Now I've got to go correct things at Zistle.  And add the numbered version of this card to my want list.

In other news, I went to the post office today to mail out some packages.  Here are the zip code final destinations:
  • 06828
  • 60618
  • 60706
  • 75201
  • 97355

Be on the look out.


  1. I've found the numbered variations to be quite tough to find.....have been looking for the Mike Schmidt for my own hoard for at least 10 yrs.....hope you find Orel a lot quicker!

  2. Those copyright dates are evil. Especially in the 1990s.

  3. Just sent you a link .there is one at eBAy now.

    1. Mark,
      Thanks. I got the link. I saw it last night while researching. Being frugal, I'm not ready to drop $2.95 on the card (delivered). Being hopeful, I'm looking forward to having it sent to me by a kind hearted blogger.

      Look, if 1950 Bowman cards are being passed around like Chiclets, a guy can be hopeful for a card that is 40 years newer, can't he?
