Here's another pack from my Toys R' Us haul, 1989 Topps baseball. I've got maybe 70% of this set, so this pack might help me fill in some of the holes in my set. Don't know what happened, but in 1988 and 1989 I have way fewer cards than in '87 and years after.
Let's tear in.
Top to Bottom:
642 Argenis Salazar. (Horrible name, worse facial expression. I'm guessing constipation.)
238 Eric King
761 Dante Bichette (RC?)
771 Ron Kittle (Easily my favorite card in the pack. The reflection off his glasses reminds me of Michaelangelo Antonioni's Blow-Up
(An awesome film in its own right.) If I dig deep enough, I'm sure I can uncover evidence of Cory Snyder committing a crime against Tom Candiotti.
24 Larry Andersen (The "park in driveways, drive in parkways" guy.)
381 Orioles Leaders (Good to see the bat boy get in on the congratulations. Wait...that uniform was worn while sliding into a base. Where's his number? Did the commissioner give Baltimore permission to use ghost runners that year?)
562 Danny Cox
Topps Company Store Puffy-Lettered Sweatshirt (What I wouldn't give...)
726 Dickie Thon
776 Nelson Liriano
492 Alan Ashby
504 Bob Walk (Creepy high school moustache and all.)
210 Dale Murphy
630 Mike Greenwell
516 Eddie Whitson
656 Ivan Calderon
Grade: Crap-minus. Dale Murphy as the big star, unless you count a Red Sock who made the news recently for flipping out at a Little League game, means a poor pack.
