1989 Fleer Baseball

Up tonight, a pack of cards from one of those sets that wasn't sold at any stores 10-year-old me frequented, so I don't have a ton of it. 1989 Fleer is still somewhat uncharted territory to me. Will I stumble across a Randy rookie, or the infamous Dick Tracy villain, FuckFace?

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
Giants Sticker
354 Danny Darwin

481 Wally Joyner
240 Fred McGriff (Yessssss!)

3 Todd Burns
577 David Palmer (This card was collected between 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on the day of the California presidential primary.)
247 David Wells
206 Doug Drabek
112 Dan Gladden
10 Darryl Strawberry '89 Fleer All Star Team

595 Rick Mahler
209 Brian Fisher
543 Mike Campbell (I have no recollection of this person playing baseball.)

459 Jose Oquendo
99 Lee Smith
491 Harold Baines (#HaroldToTheHall)

167 Jeff Reed
392 Luis Rivera

Pretty good pack, lots of guys that have small but dedicated followings conspiring to get their guy into the Hall of Fame. The insert was nice, too.

I love that this blog's banner has turned into an angry exclamation point, at least on my browser.

I think I need a Fuck Face card. I sold one to some old man when I was 13 for $20 and still consider it a pretty good deal, but the nostalgia lingers.

Love the 24 reference on David Palmer. Nice work.

Jeff Reed caught Tom Browning's perfect game in 1988, but of course none of his 1989 baseball cards mention that.
