These are refugees from pack rips I was going to do but never did. These are definitely worth posting.
I'll have to wait until I get the base set completely finished off, but like Duke Ellington from the first series, this is likely my favorite base card from the set. I have a tape full of Cosmos episodes from a Science Channel marathon that I need to rewatch one of these days.
The Carl Sagan of baseball. It just occurred to me that Topps must not have wanted to pony up some extra licencing money because all the sports figures I've pulled are logoless. It works very well in the context of this set. Upper Deck should be watching closely.
I'll admit right now, that I was more of a Sesame Street youth myself, those king and queen puppets kinda freaked me out. Mr. Rogers is still a pretty fantastic guy and a great American.
Speaking of great Americans, this guy refused to sign the Constitution because it didn't have a Bill of Rights. Nothing more needs to be said.
I just think it's cool that Medgar Evers has his own trading card. Maybe it will prompt a couple of collectors to learn a little more about him.
