I liked my pack of 1988 Panini stickers so much I dug up my sticker album and ripped three more packs. Lets see if these packs have any stickers I need!
211 foil Blue Jays uniforms
228 Willie Randolph and Wade Boggs All Stars
259 Leon Durham
327 Tim Wallach
10 an action shot with #20 from the Yankees I think
225 Lloyd Moseby
Stickers I needed: Leon Durham and the mystery Yankee
I have about 75% of the album filled so 2 out of 6 ain't bad. The mystery Yankee sticker is actually one half of the Baltimore Orioles' action picture with Cal Ripken. I'm not going to bother looking up #20 because some fanatic out there will know and post it in the comments. Here's the full shot:
Leon Durham is the last Cub player I needed, all right! I'm still missing the logo and and action sticker but it's nice to complete something. Check out Sandberg's 'stache!
J-1 Yankees Logo and Pennant
395 Curt Ford
267 Jerry Mumphrey
268 Rafael Palmeiro
79 Mel Hall
140 Gary Gaetti
Stickers I needed: The Yankees Logos and Curt Ford
Two more I needed including the last Cardinal. I'm only missing their big foil logo now. Curt looks a little bit worried to be stuck in between Vince Coleman and Willie McGee.
The Yankees sticker is a two-parter. There's a small pennant that goes on the useless pennant page:
And a circular logo that can be stuck on a mini poster:
I'm not sure what the pluses and asterisks I wrote in mean, they're pretty much on every page. My best theory is I ordered some stickers from Panini to complete my collection and I never mailed it off, or forgot to stick them in or actually hit puberty or something and stopped collecting stickers. Screw puberty, it's overrated. I'm going to display my unfinished pennant in my favorite place and HAVE FUN!
317 Expos logo
437 Tony Gwynn action
231 Rickey Henderson and Dave Winfield All Stars
54 Bob James
121 Greg Brock
355 Lance Parrish
Stickers I needed: None, zippo, nada, bupkis
Man. I already have all these stickers. Now I feel like this guy:
Of course this setback only encourages me to find more of these packs. Here's the rest of the unstuck leftover stickers for your viewing pleasure. Anyone need 'em for YOUR sticker album?
