Another Great Oddball Set ...

 I have added another great oddball set to the collection...

The 1991 Topps Babe Ruth movie set!

Stephen Lang played Babe Ruth, Pete Rose played  Ty Cobb, and Rod Carew was the baseball consultant for the movie.

This aired on October 6th 1991 on NBC.

The Chronicles of Fuji blog had brought this set to my attention.  So I went to the place I know that carries a lot of different oddball sets/items, Fritsch Cards and they had it.

Now to try and find the movie some where.  Have not found it yet.  Let me know if anyone out there knows where to look.

Thanks for looking

Mail Day !!!!!

 Got home from work and here is what I found in the mail...

FREE ( we all like free )  from Topps, they sent me a Mike Trout promo card.  I can use the promo code on the back to get 2021 Topps Now Road to Opening Day team set.  Wait and see how they look and maybe get the Royals.

Also found this at my front door.....also from Topps...

My 2021 Hobby box ....... YEAH!!!!🙌

To this date, I have yet to find any retail at any store in my area.  🙎

Hopefully soon!  I would like to open some retail before breaking into the hobby box.

Need to start looking for the Rookie Trophy Cup cards for my collection.

Thanks For Looking

Oddball sets..

 Thanks to Dan's (It's like having my own card shop) blog about his oddball 1992 Confex Baseball Enquirer cards,  there's another set I might have to look at getting.  I will have to at least get the  Royals.

So I thought I would show a couple of my oddball sets..... 

1985 Baseball Greats Caricatures..

I do not remember where I got these.

The other set is...

1989 Franklin Caramel Series 1 and 2 (Unlicensed)

I picked these up, in 1992, on a fall trip to the White Mountains in NH.  There was a card shop, in one off the small towns, that I stopped into and purchased these when I saw them.

Thanks for reading.
