We start off with this delightfully sunny and logo-less Tom Seaver card from the 1993 Yoo-Hoo set. That brings me up to 2 of the 20 cards on this checklist. Though, the other one is a Willie Stargell that’s currently in my Pops PC, so I’ll need another. Essentially, I’m 5% done with this set. I’m wondering if I should start a food-issue binder. At the very least, I’ll have a box out of the food issue sets I’m mildly chasing.
What’s this? 2013 Topps? I’ve been done with that team set for a long time. Something seems odd with these scans here, though. Perhaps that’s because they aren’t 2013 Topps at all, but the Topps Mini set! It was nice to put two more of these to bed.
We’ll come full circle with this pair of Brooksies to end the post. The card on the left is from the 1987 Leaf Special Olympics set, which seems ripe for an entry on Tony’s Collecting the 1980s blog. The set featured a dozen HOFers and six cards featuring Special Olympics sports. According to Baseballcardpedia, sales of the set benefitted the Special Olympics, and Leaf was an official sponsor of the ’87 Games, which were held at Notre Dame’s campus. If it looks familiar, it’s because the design was ripped from the 1983 Donruss Hall of Fame Heroes set. The 1992 Ziploc is another fantastic food issue card, and marks the second one from this set I’ve picked up in a trade this year. For now it’s in the Brooks PC, but I imagine I’ll slowly try to add the other 9 cards from the set.
Thanks again for the trade Brian!
