SCREW IT I'M LEAVING THIS GLITCH
1985 DONRUSS ALL-STARS


THIS POST IS 100% INSERT AND RELIC CARD FREE, ODDBALL EXPOS ONLY.

I LOVE THESE JUMBO SIZED DONRUSS ALL STAR SETS AND I'D LIKE TO BUILD ALL THE SETS EXCEPT YOU CAN BUY THE COMPLETE SET FOR A COUPLE BUCKS SO YOU'RE RIPPING PACKS ONLY FOR THE PUZZLE PIECES AND ALL-STAR STAND-UPS WITH THE METRODOME IN THE BACKGROUND. I DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THIS SET THOUGH BECAUSE IN THE MID-80S DONRUSS SOLD FUN PACKS FOR A BUCK AND A HALF THAT WERE PRETTY MUCH NOTHING BUT MISCUT 1981 PACKS THEY FOUND IN THE BACK OF A WAREHOUSE AND THESE PACKS. I BOUGHT A TON OF THEM AND HAVE ABOUT 8 COMPLETE SETS ROTTING IN MY BASEMENT NOW. I DON'T CARE BECAUSE IN THE 80S A WHITE GRID ON A BLACK BACKGROUND WAS FUTURISTIC AS FUCK. THIS SET MAKES TRON LOOK LIKE A VICTORIAN PERIOD PIECE. TIM RAINES IS FLOATING INSIDE A COMPUTERY GRID. AND THERE'S ANOTHER TIM GLOWING WITH TECH POWER FLOATING ON TOP OF TIM BECAUSE COMPUTERS!!!!!1 THAT'S HOW I SAW THIS CARD BACK THEN. NOW AS WE ALL KNOW COMPUTERS ARE VERY BAD


I ALSO LIKE HOW THESE BACKS OF THE ALL STAR SETS ARE BASICALLY REGULAR DONRUSS BACKS THAT ARE ALL JACKED UP ON STEROIDS. LOOKIT THOSE STATS!!!!! THIS IS BASEBALL-REFERENCE-DOT-COM IN 1985. FIELDING AVERAGE??? SUCH LUXURY. AND EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE CARD GETS ITS OWN LITTLE WORLD TO LIVE IN. GIGANTIC NAME AND BIG, EASY TO READ CARD NUMBER GETS THE LIVING ROOM. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION IS SHOVED INTO THE UTILITY CLOSET BECAUSE YOU DON'T REALLY CARE BUT IT'S THERE WHEN YOU NEED IT. STATS IN THE KITCHEN BECAUSE ALL THE GOOD STUFF IS ALWAYS IN THE KITCHEN. CONTRACT STATUS GETS THE KID'S BEDROOM BECAUSE IT WASN'T IMPORTANT BACK THEN BUT IT SURE DID GROW UP TO BE A MONSTER NOWADAYS. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS GET TO STRETCH OUT IN THE SPACIOUS MASTER BEDROOM. NO BATHROOM BECAUSE POOPING IS FOR PEOPLE, NOT BASEBALL CARDS

1987-88 FLEER STAR STICKERS


FLEER STAR STICKERS, WHERE FLEER CARD DESIGNERS COULD SNORT ALL THE COKE AND JUST GO NUTS. HOW MANY TRADING CARD SETS HAD A PRIMARY COLOR SCHEME OF GREEN AND YELLOW. NOT VERY MANY, I'M GUESSING. ONLY ONE I CAN THINK OF OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD IS THE TOPPS INDIANA JONES SET. THERE SHOULD BE MORE OAKLAND A'S SETS OUT THERE! 2020 TOPPS SHOULD GO FULL SWINGIN' A'S GREEN AND GOLD EVERYWHERE. BUT THE DESIGNERS DIDN'T JUST STOP THERE, OH NO.... RED AND WHITE BANNERS DRAPED ALL OVER EVERYTHING! WITH STARS!!!! GOTTA HAVE STARS ON THE STAR STICKERS. BACK IS THE SAME OLD FLEER JUNK BUT GREEN AND YELLOW WHICH IS ENOUGH TO MAKE IT AMAZING. WHAT MONSTER WOULD BEND AND PEEL THIS



FOR THE 88 SET I FEEL LIKE MOST OF THE DESIGN TEAM GOT CLEAN AND SOBER AND WERE BRAINSTORMING AND AGREED ON '1970 TOPPS RIPOFF' WHEN THAT GUY WHO WAS A REALLY BAD INFLUENCE CHARGED IN SCREAMING 'STARS!!!!! MULTICOLORED STARS!!!!!! EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' AND EVERYONE FELL OFF THE WAGON. LIVES WERE DESTROYED. THAT GUY DIDN'T EVEN WORK FOR FLEER ANYMORE, HE JUST RAN IN THE BUILDING. DEFINITELY NAKED AND MAYBE ON FIRE. THE SOMBER BLACK AND WHITE BACK COMMEMORATES THE DEAD. THE RED, THE BLOOD SPILLED. THE HAPPY SUN AND MOON LOGOS, WELL, THOSE ARE JUST CUTE.

THIS IS SUPPOSEDLY A POST ABOUT TIM RAINES THOUGH SO LET'S LOOK AT THOSE STATS. .300 AVERAGE FOR YEARS. AVERAGE IS MEANINGLESS, YOU SAY. HOWZABOUT MORE WALKS THAN STRIKEOUTS, CHECK OUT DEM ON BASE AVERAGES. OH YEAH, OVER 500 STEALS MEANS A WALK IS BASICALLY A DOUBLE. AND TIM'S GOT THIRTY OF THOSE A YEAR AS WELL. OH AND HE CAN POKE A HOMER OVER THE WALL OCCASIONALLY. TIM RAINES IS THE MAN. I WANT TO STICK HIM ON MY TRAPPER KEEPER BUT I CAN'T BECAUSE THE CARD IS TOO COOL

1985 TOPPS RUB-OFFS

I WISH I COULD FIND A BOX OF THESE SO I COULD RIP IT AND BUILD A SET AND MAKE BEAUTIFUL PICTURES WITH ALL THE DOUBLES. I'M GUESSING ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 42 HAS NO CLUE WHAT THESE THINGS ARE. BASICALLY: THEY'RE DECALS WHERE YOU ATTACH THE IMAGE BY PLACING THE PLASTIC 'CARD' ON TOP OF THE PAPER AND THEN USE A PEN OR PENCIL TO RUB THE IMAGE OFF THE PLASTIC AND ONTO THE PAGE WHERE IT STICKS FOREVER. I SUPPOSE YOU COULD USE A COIN OR FINGERNAIL TO TRANSFER THE IMAGE BUT IT'S FAR MORE SATISFYING TO SCRIBBLE ON THE PLASTIC WITH A PENCIL OR PEN. BALLPOINT, NOT FELT. FELT PENS WON'T WORK. IF YOU DON'T PUT ENOUGH PRESSURE THE IMAGE WON'T STICK AND YOU'LL END UP WITH BUBBLES AND TEARS IN TIM RAINES' DACE AND THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE. THIS EXPLANATION DIDN'T HELP AT ALL, DID IT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT, JUST THINK ABOUT THE TOTAL WAR ON THIS TRANSFER SHEET. THREE HALL OF FAMERS AND A GUY WHO HAD A GREAT CAREER, ONE PLAY NOTWITHSTANDING. HERE'S A CONTEST: GUESS THE TOTAL WAR OF THESE FOUR PLAYERS IN THE COMMENTS AND THE WINNER GETS TO BUY A BOX OF THIS STUFF AND SHIP IT TO ME SO I CAN MAKE PRETTY PICTURES WITH BILL BUCKNER'S FACE. INCLUDE A SASE AND I MIGHT SEND YOU A PRETTY PICTURE

I'M MOSTLY KIDDING ABOUT THIS

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IDIOTIC TO SAY ABOUT THE BACK. IF YOU DO GET YOUR HANDS ON ONE OF THESE CARDS(?) AND WANT TO MAKE YOUR OWN ARTWORK YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL. THERE'S A THIN SHEET OF PROTECTIVE PAPER ON THE BACK, PROBABLY TO KEEP THE IMAGES FROM STICKING TO THE OTHER CARDS IN THE PACK ACCIDENTALLY. REMOVE THAT THIN PROTECTIVE SHEET! UNLESS YOU WANT TIM TO BE STUCK TO THAT SHEET INSTEAD OF THE PAPER AFTER SCRIBBLING ALL OVER IT.

1990 FLEER BASEBALL MVP


WHY DID I SCAN SO MANY CARDS? WHAT WAS I THINKING? THIS IS A WEIRD ONE FOR ME BECAUSE I'M PRETTY SURE I SAW NOT EVEN ONE OF THESE FORMERLY UBIQUITOUS FLEER BOX SETS FOR SALE AFTER 1988. I DON'T KNOW IF PRODUCTION WAS CUT OR IF THEY GOT BOUGHT UP IMMEDIATELY BY SPECULATORS OR IF I JUST IGNORED THEM BECAUSE I ALWAYS BOUGHT THEM ON DEEP CLEARANCE. MY BRAIN HAS TROUBLE PROCESSING THE LEFT TO RIGHT GRADIENT, OH SWEET A BLACK BORDERED SET......OOOOH NO IT ISN'T.


BACK IS BORING, EVEN THE Melb LOGO. NEXT

1988 FLEER SUPERSTARS

I KINDA LIKE WHEN A SPECIAL COLLECTOR SET IS JUST A SLIGHT VARIATION OF THE BASE SET DESIGN. THE CARD LOOKS CLASSY AND TIM LOOKS HAPPY. LET'S END ON A HAPPY NOTE.

THAT'S ALL, THERE IS NO MORE. HAPPY INDUCTION WEEKEND!

Hall of Fame - Ivan Rodriguez

OH GOD, THIS POST IS A MESS. I DIDN'T WRITE ANYTHING FOR IT EITHER. AND I'M SUPER BUSY TODAY. OH WELL, GOTTA SUCK IT UP AND GET THIS ISH DONE. IVAN HO!!!!!!!!

fxghjxfghjhsgfhsgh HTML EXPLODED MY EXPLANATION SO ALWAYS WONDER ABOUT WHAT THIS IS
1993 UPPER DECK


HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THIS CARD

LOOK AT IT

THIS IS WHY 1993 UPPER DECK IS THE BEST OF THE 90S.

NO ARGUMENTS

HALL OF FAME CARD FOR A HALL OF FAME PUDGE


WHEN I WAS A KID ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLAYERS WAS CARLTON FISK PROBABLY BECAUSE I WAS MILDLY OBSESSED WITH HIS 1981 TOPPS CARD. WAS A BIG ENOUGH FAN TO UNOFFICIALLY ADOPT THE WHITE SOX AS MY AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAM FOR A WHILE. FISK'S NICKNAME WAS PUDGE AND WHEN I FOUND OUT IVAN'S NICKNAME WAS ALSO PUDGE HE ALSO BECAME A FAVORITE. ALSO REALLY LIKED RUBEN SIERRA BUT I NEVER CONSIDERED THE RANGERS AS MY AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAM. WHY NO, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE ABOUT BASEBALL CARDS ANYMORE, WHY DO YOU ASK


1992 FLEER ROOKIE SENSATIONS


I DIDN'T PUT THE SCANS IN ORDER EITHER SO SHOWING THE BACK FIRST BECAUSE WHY NOT? THESE CARDS WERE CAR-AAAAAAA-ZY BACK IN '92 BECAUSE THEY WERE ONLY FOUND IN THE BIG FAT JUMBO PACKS YOU COULD ONLY FIND AT THE ECKERD ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN AND THERE WERE NO ODDS ON THE PACKS BACK THEN SO NO ONE KNEW IF THEY WERE IN EVERY OTHER PACK OR IF YOU'D HAVE TO BUY THE WHOLE DISPLAY AND MAYBE STILL WOULDN'T GET ONE. NO ONE WENT CRAZY OVER THE TEAM LEADER CARDS THOUGH AND THEY WERE EVEN HARDER TO FIND BUT THEY WEREN'T ROOKIES I GUESS. NOT THAT ANY OF THESE THINGS WERE ROOKIE CARDS, EVERY LOST THEIR MINDS FOR THE FRANK THOMAS CARD AND HIS ROOKIE WAS IN 1990.


MAAAAN THIS WAS A GOOD LOOKIN SET. DEM BLUE BORDERS. NICE UNOBSTRUCTED PHOTO. DAT CLASSY GOLD FOIL BEFORE IT GOT ENCRUSTED ALL OVER EVERYTHING. I KNOW 1992 FLEER ISN'T A FAVORITE DUE TO ITS DESIGN BUT FACTOR IN THE INSERT SETS AND IT'S A PRETTY NICE ONE TO COLLECT. ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THESE ONCE MIGHTY ROOKIE SENSATIONS CAN BE FOUND IN DIME BOXES. THIS ONE IS A HIGH-PRICED ITEM THOUGH, I HAD TO GO TO THE QUARTER BOXES TO GET IT

1998 SCORE/PINNACLE EPIX


FLEER IS CLASSY, SCORE IS SHIIIIIIIIINY. EPIX IS A GLORIOUS CLUSTERFUCK OF AN INSERT SET THAT IS SPREAD ACROSS SEVERAL PRODUCTS WITH EACH CARD GETTING FOUR DIFFERENT VARIATIONS THAT CAN BE FOUND IN THREE DIFFERENT COLORS. DIFFERENT VARIATIONS CAN BE FOUND IN DIFFERENT PRODUCTS BUT ONY ONE VARIATION PER PRODUCT AND DIFFERENT PLAYERS CAN HAVE DIFFERENT VARIATIONS IN THE SAME PRODUCT EXCEPT FOR THE MOMENTS CARDS WHICH WERE ALL INSERTED INTO ONE SINGLE PRODUCT, ALBEIT THE FIRST HALF OF THE SET IN ONE PRODUCT AND THEN THE SECOND HALF IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PRODUCT AND I DON'T THINK ANYONE KNOWS IF THERE'S ANY RARITY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORANGE, PURPLE AND GREEN CARDS. MAKES SENSE, RIGHT? I SOMEHOW PULLED TWO IVAN ORANGES OUT OF DIFFERENT SERIES SCORE PACKS AND I'M UNREASONABLY PROUD OF THIS FACT


SOMEHOW THE BACKS ARE AS CRAZY AS THE FRONTS, NO MEAN FEAT WITH THAT DAZZLING HOLOFOIL MESS ON THE OTHER SIDE. THE HIGHLIGHTS LISTED ON THESE CARDS ARE AMAZING AS WELL AS THEY COMMEMORATE PUDGE BREAKING A RECORD SET BY MICKEY FRICKIN COCHRANE AND SOMEHOW PARTICIPATING IN AN ALL STAR GAME THAT THE AMERICAN LEAGUE LOST

2002 DONRUSS FAN CLUB FRANCHISE FEATURES MATERIALS


GOTTA SHOW OFF THE LAUNDRY I GUESS
THIS WAS FROM A TERRIBLE SET CALLED FAN CLUB WHICH WAS UGLY AND HAD SHORT PRINTS AND A CHROMIUM STYLE PARALLEL SET. BUT IT ALSO HAD BIG THICK RELIC CARDS BASED ON UGLY INSERTS AND SOME OF THOSE RELIC CARD HAD PRETTY BLUE SWATCHES SO I GUESS IT'S NOT ALL BAD



NO PICTURE OF THE ACTUAL JERSEY ON THE BACK THIS TIME. THE PICTURE ON THE FRONT IS THE SAME COLOR AS THE SWATCH AT LEAST. BIG-ASS TEAM LOGOS AND THAT UBIQUITOUS SERIAL NUMBER FONT GIVE ME THE HAPPY GROOVIES AS WELL. EVEN UGLY CARDS CAN BE BEAUTIFUL

TIM TOMORROW UNLESS I SLEEP ALL DAY, THEN IT'LL BE MONDAY MAYBE
I'LL SHOOT FOR TOMORROW

Hall of Fame - Jeff Bagwell

IT'S HALL OF FAME WEEKEND APPARENTLY. I HAVEN'T REALLY KNOWN WHAT MONTH IT IS FOR SEVERAL OF THE PAST MONTHS SO IT KINDA SNUCK UP ON ME. I'M GUESSING I HAVE SCANS OF THIS YEAR'S INDUCTEES SOMEWHERE ON MY HARD DRIVE BUT I'M TOO LAZY TO SEARCH FOR THEM. INSTEAD! HERE ARE POSTS IN MY DRAFT FOLDER FROM THE 2017 CLASS THAT I HALFWAY DID AND NEVER POSTED FOR SOME REASON. WAS IT TOO BUSY? WAS IT TOO LAZY? WAS IT SIMPLY APATHY? WE'LL NEVER KNOW!!! BUT I AM POSTING THEM NOW BECAUSE I'VE GONE ALL QUIRKY. YOU CAN DIFFERENTIATE WHAT I WROTE BACK THEN FROM WHAT I AM WRITING RIGHT THIS EXACT SECOND BECAUSE I WASN'T ALL YELLY IN 2017. WELL I KINDA WAS BUT NOT ONLINE. ENJOY

It's The National weekend!!! Why aren't you up in Chicago blowing thousands of dollars on pieces of cardboard?!? Oh, you're broke ass broke like me? Well OK then. It's Hall of Fame induction weekend too, we can enjoy that while sitting our asses at home. I've dug up some oldie moldie cards to honor the newest inductees.

1992 Donruss Diamond Kings


Some of y'all weren't born when this card came out so let me try to explain how big a deal it was back then. 1991-1992 was a weird time for baseball cards. Most companies were still in 1980s mode with their base card designs, but premium sets like Stadium Club and Pinnacle were popping up and getting a lot of collector attention. After an abysmal looking design in '91, Donruss gussied up the 1992 set, making it look more like their Leaf product and turned the long-running Diamond Kings subset into a full bleed glossy insert set. And people lost their minds chasing that Bagwell. The first boxes came out a couple weeks before Christmas in 1991 and I spent every last dime I had ripping packs trying to pull just one Diamond King, I didn't. Not till after Christmas anyway. Nowadays you can get the whole set for a few bucks (or pull it all out of dime and quarter boxes if you're willing to dig) but it's still one of the best looking insert sets of the 90s.



1995 Fleer Pro-Visions


Sticking with the Art theme for this post. I know everyone loathes the 1995 Fleer set and I really can't blame you. The base card designs range from ludicrous to hideous and the set as a whole is possibly the busiest and most confusing designs ever put on a mainstream base product. I'm not going to deny this, I'm just going to say look at the whole picture. 1995 was in the middle of Fleer's 'Insert in every pack' phases and while the base set is a mess the insert cards were very clean looking and well designed. The mess of a base set wasn't just a mess, it was a conscious design choice meant to flip the script on the trope of the boring looking base card and creatively weird inserts. So it didn't work out that well, at least they tried something new. Better than long runs of sets that all look alike (yes I'm talking about you, twenty first century Topps designs).

The Pro-Visions inserts had been around since 1991 and in '95 they were full bleed with a design that connected through all six cards in the series. The fronts are creative artwork and the backs are pure 90s purple and teal swirly cheese. Next time someone says the 1995 Fleer set sucks, show 'em Jeff Bagwell smashing the goddamn Space Shuttle out of the park and see how fast they shut up.



2003 Donruss Jersey Kings


OH MAH GAWD ITZ BEEG MOJO HEETZ USING RECYCLED ART FROM 1991 BACK WHEN USED LAUNDRY CARDS WEREN'T WORTHLESS GARBAGE CLUTTERING UP DOLLAR BOXEN. I'M BEING CYNICAL BUT THIS CARD IS FUCKIN SWEET. THICK AS A BRICK, NICE DARK SWATCH FOR US GOTHY COLLECTORS, LOVELY ART AND ONE OF THE LESS-TERRIBLE DESIGNS FOR THE MID-AUGHTS



AND CHECK THIS SHIT OUT, A PICTURE OF THE ACTUAL EXACT JERSEY THAT JEFF SWEATED ALL OVER IN AN OFFICIAL MAJOR LEAGUE GAME OF BASE AND BALLS  THE DIRTY RAG PIECE CAME FROM, GUARANTEED. NONE OF THIS 'THIS SWATCH CAME FROM SOMEWHERE, SOME PLACE, SOMEHOW, PROBABLY, I MEAN THERE'S AN ACTUAL PIECE OF CLOTH EMBEDDED IN THE CARD ISN'T THERE? QUIT BITCHING, THIS IS YOUR GUARANTEED HIT FROM THE BOX, NO REFUNDS' DISCLAIMERS WE GET NOWADAYS. LOOKIT THAT BEAUTIFUL JERSEY THAT WAS SHREDDED TO BITS SO 100 OF THESE CARDS COULD GET MADE


1997 PINNACLE INSIDE DUELING DUGOUTS



YELLING DURING THE CARD DESCRIPTIONS TOO, IDGAF. THIS IS A RIDICULOUS INSERT WITH AN EMBEDDED SPINNY STAT WHEEL THAT CAME OUT OF A LUDICROUS PRODUCT THAT PUT A FLAT, RECTANGULAR PACK OF CARDS INSIDE A ROUND, CYLINDRICAL TIN CAN BECAUSE THE LATE 90S WERE FUCKIN CRAZY, MAN. THE WHEEL HAS SEVERAL YEARS OF SPINNY STATS WHAT YOU CAN SPIN TO SEE THE DIFFERENT SEASONS OF STAT SPINS. MY HEAD IS SPINNING. IT'S LATE AND I NEED TO POST THIS QUICK BEFORE I PASS OUT BUT I SCANNED ALL FIVE YEARS OF STATS FOR BAGWEEL AND I GOTTA COMMENT ON ALL OF THEM. HA HA BAG WHEEL. MY DEMENTED MIND MAKES PUNS I DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT.

THE WHEEL STARTS WITH 1992, HIS SOPHOMORE SEASON THAT MORE OR LESS MATCHED HIS ROOKIE OF THE YEAR CAMPAIGN, JUST WITH A FEW MORE BOPS AND RIBBIES AND A LITTLE PROP IN HIS AVERAGE AND ON BASE PERCENTAGE


YEAR THREE, COUPLE MORE HOMERS, COUPLE FEWER RBIS, WAY BETTER AVERAGE. A TASTE OF WHAT'S TO COME


1994 HOLY SHIT. TY COBBIAN AVERAGE, BABE RUTHIAN HOMERS AND RBIS ARE A SILLY STAT BUT HE HAD A TON OF EM. IMAGINE WHAT THIS WOULD LOOK LIKE WITH ANOTHER MONTH OF GAMES. BURN IN HELL BUD SELIG


OH NO, A SLUMP. A SLUMP FOR JEFF BAGWELL IS 4.9 WAR AND A BETTER SEASON THAN HIS ROOKIE OF THE YEAR CAMPAIGN


1996, AH JEFF IS BACK. THE FIRST OF 6 STRAIGHT SEASONS OF OVER 5 WAR. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WAR YOU SURE AS HELL UNDERSTAND .315/31/120 I BETCHA


BACK OF THE CARD HAS 1996 MVP AND BRAVES LEGEND KEN CAMINITI. REST IN PEACE KEN AND SAY HI TO JIM BOUTON AND DON MOSSI FOR ME

*LOUD SOB*

YELL AT ME IF I DON'T POST IVAN TOMORROW, I'M SERIOUS ABOUT THIS
