Although, I do have a couple of vintage minis that are over a century old and they are absolutely the bee's knees.
I stopped by my LCS, after work today, on my way to visit my grandfather. They don't have the World Series bobbleheads yet, but the owner said, "I think I have something you might be interested in."
Yeah! These are pretty cool! Twenty-one minis of the 2016 World Series Chicago Cubs. Very nice!
But hey, that's not all! Meet Joe Tinker . . .
There were some repeats backs, but ten different ones in all.
These were sold as reprints at reprint prices, which I happily paid. For the record, these would never pass as actually T206s. There's no paper loss, fuzzy corners, stains, creases or holes. All the corners are sharp and the card stock is noticeably thicker than an actual T206.
How do I know? Well I compared the two!

Here's the two backs of the cards:
I know many of you are tired of hearing about the Cubs, but I had to share this find!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
