Quarter Box Bounty - Part 6 '35 Goudey

Not much to say about these, this insert set is really the only thing I like about 2009 Goudey. I knocked 4 off my list at least. Most of the cards in the set have a theme to them, no matter how obtuse.

Red Soxes


Oh goody. SportsCenter on cardboard.

Japanese Asian Players

Chien Ming Wang is from Taiwan, Upper Deck. I guess they all just look alike to  you, Upper Deck , I SUPPOSE. What, Hideki Matsui was busy?


What the hell is this? Random All-Stars? I must figure this out. Let's see... Total Douche, Smilin' Douche, Not a Douche, King Kamehameha Dreadlocked Super Douchey Douche. Damn, Jim Thome screws the Douche theme all up. Wait! 500 Home Runs! Well that's not bad at all! I need to quit being so cynical. I wonder if fans back in the '40s thought these same things about Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx and Mel Ott?

I always wondered if you had the old guys in the 1940s diners bemoaning the current state of baseball, as it was so much better in the teens and twenties.

Also, Ming Wang? WTF? His last name is Wang, his first name is Chien Ming. So Topps just added part of his first name to his last name and put Ming Wang on there?
