Maybe you can help me out? If I've learned anything during my blogging tenure it's these two things:
1) The blogosphere is full of generous people, like Wes from Jaybarkerfan's Junk
2) There are some really knowledgeable people out there.
What is this card?
Is there another reproduction set out there that I'm not aware of? Over-sized, glossy-ish front, blank back? Bueller? Bueller? Let's hear your best guesses in the comments section!
Let's see some cards I know more about! This is yet another package from Wes and they are always good for some interesting stuff!
Don't rub it! (Unless you're going to rub dirt in it.)
For the record that's a Hostess Ryno on the right. Mmmmm... Hostess...
I thought both of these Ryno cards were new to my collection, but as it turns out only the '94 Denny's card is new. And this picture is reason #1 as to why I need a scanner.
And lastly, proof that Wes likes to give a good Bipping.
Seven Slammin' Sammy Sosa cards!
Thanks for another wonderful package, Wes! I'm still collecting cards for a package to send your way... you have built up a bunch of good karma in my collection and I'm trying to make the return package worth your while!
No idea on the Mr. Cub, but I will say this: my hatred of the Cubs is well known. That being said, the Cubs logo on the Williams card is SERIOUSLY underused. It's classic and it's brilliant. They need to lose the crap that is on their sleeves right now and bring that logo back.ReplyDelete
I'll still hate them, but at least they will be better dressed.
Hehe... just wait until they finish somewhere in the standings other than fifth place, like they've done the last FIVE years. I'm sure your hatred will only continue to blossom as they continue to improve. :-)Delete
I've been harping about the logo for years. Bring back the cute cubbie. Aggressive logos don't win games. Good players do.Delete
The Billy Williams oddball on the left also has the State of Illinois 150th Anniversary patch on the opposite sleeve, that's pretty cool. It means the photo must have been during the 1968 seasonReplyDelete
Good eyes! I couldn't make out what that patch was. Thanks for the info!Delete
