@r6d4 and I decided to trade some art! He’s a fan of the early 80’s big beards, mustaches and afros… and Oscar Gamble’s ‘82 @topps was a memorable part of his childhood. Oscar’s massive hair may have been iconic for his time, but his words are immortal, “They don’t think it be like it is,Continue reading

When @topps stopped including gum in ‘92, the baseball card bubble began to burst due to overproduction of cards in the 80’s from multiple manufacturers (Donruss, Fleer, Score, Upper Deck). The strike-cancelled World Series in ’94 was the last pin to drop.

Flew home last night and completed the latest Bazooka… Diamond No. 28! This one features reprints of 1963 @topps Roberto Clemente and 1969 Nolan Ryan to highlight the backs of the cards that featured comic strips from the Bazooka Joe illustrators. Noticed a funny error on the back of Nolan’s card too…. “unleased” his fastball.Continue reading
