I continue to make progress going through boxes of cards from the purchase I made several months back. I have yet to strike a balance between blogging and sorting/exploring, hence the large gaps in posts at time.
A couple days back I was sorting through a boring box of 1990 Fleer and noticed two slightly oversized cards on the side. I slid them out and was pleasantly surprised to see they had a little age on them, they looked vintagey, 1970s vintage.
Then I took a closer look at the first one, here it is:
A cool, slightly oversized cartoon card from Fleer and R.G. Laughlin. These look similar to the World Series cards that were put out in the early 70s, this set is a 42 card set of Baseball's Wildest Days and Plays. I love these types of cards. I got more excited seeing the pinstriped NY on the had and turned the card over and saw this was a Giants card that I needed for my collection. Very cool!
The second card was the same size, looked to be about the same age but was of the football variety:
I don't know what the chances are that both of these fun finds would fit right into my collection but I am sure glad they did. Off to the binders they go.
