1992 Stadium Club Series 2

Woooo! Stadium Club! Back before Topps rooned it with short prints and autographs an nonsense. Got this pack from Motherscratcher in a box-o-stuff. May as well open it!

What the hell is Tim Wallach doing there? Seriously. What is he doing.

Not too bad for a series 2 pack! Dave Stewart, the unceremoniously dumped Tom Glavine and a Member's card of Needles Rocket. The Rob Dibble card is pretty interesting too just for the contortions. The best part about these cards are the backs with the rookie cards on them. Unfortunately about half the pack had those stupid "Topps Debut" rookie cards from 1990 and '91. The oldest rookie card in the pack is right here:

Pretty cool Bull logo on the Darwin and Sample caps. Why didn't Topps put rookie cards on the back in last years's Stadium Club set? It might have actually made up for all those damn shortprints.

I think Tim Wallach is answering his ball.

"Can you hear me now?... Good."

If you put a baseball up to your ear you can hear your career highlights played back to you.

Man, those cards were too sweet when they came out. Overprinting be damned, I didn't know or care about that. They just felt, smelled, and looked so classy to a 12-year-old.
