Oops. Looks like one of these ten cello packs of 1988 Topps is actually a cello pack of 1989 Topps.
Mark Grace - If you haven't heard Gracie and Sutton calling a DBacks game, you've missed out on some fun. I liked Grace as a player. I love him as a color analyst.
Ruben Sierra (P.R.) - He hit 30 HR as a 21-yr old. He never could get his OBP up enough to dominate.
Chris Sabo - Rookie Cup = scan. I would have loved this pack in '89. Gracie plus Sabo already.
Jose DeLeon (D.R.)
Atlee Hammaker (Carmel, CA)
Keith Hernandez (San Fran) - Obilgatory Seinfeld link.
Ozzie Smith - Woohoo, a Bama Boy! Just another HOFer from Mobile, Alabama. So what if his family moved to L.A. when he was six? He's still from Mobile. So are Hank Aaron, Billy Williams, Willie McCovey, and Satchel Paige. Maybe you've heard of them, too.
Mike Moore - Does this guy look like a baseball player, or like an extra from a movie about itinerant miners?
Oswald Peraza (Venezuela)
Mario Diaz (P.R.)
Donn Pall - Birmingham on the Back
Gary Carter (Culver City, CA) - HOF = scan.
Tony Oliva - Turn Back the Clock - I should start a petition to bring this subset back. If it worked for Stadium Club, it can work for...wait, no, Topps would find a way to mess it up. It's best to let it live unmarred in the realm of nostalgia.
German Gonzalez (Venezuela)
Luis Rivera (P.R.)
Expos Leaders - I like these so much more than two boring pictures of a hitter and a pitcher side by side.
Luis Aquino (P.R.)
Darnell Coles (San Bernardino, CA)
Mets Leaders - Strawberry/ McReynods / Hernandez - Challenge: Find the game that this photo is from.
World - 7
Cali - 4
The World closes the gap a bit, but they have a lot of ground still to make up in the last four packs. The score is now Cali 34, World 22. The Bama Boys finally get on the board, and in style, with the Wizard of Oz.
Edited: Added scan of Birmingham on the Back for Don Pall
