A few more in another rapid-fire post...

If this is it for Bobby Abreu, I'm gonna miss the big lug, and I'm glad I got to see him have a pretty good game at Dodger Stadium back in May with Dan Epstein.

I really need to stop buying singles of these and just pick up the Series 2 and Update sets of them, but if this card was in front of you, even though this picture's been used a billion times on cards, would you have the self-discipline not to spend $.64 on it? I think not! Come on, people, it's Jackie Robinson. On an '87 Topps card. And it's a mini.

Of course, it's not a real '87 mini...even the '87 Mini Leaders aren't this real.

These were printed-on-the-box cards (I think it was 2 to a back panel). I just measured them up against the new ones, and they're the exact same scale. Here's some card backs...

Sadly, no stats on the back, but still.

Probably need to get the rest of this set at some point. Then I'll probably need to get an extra Ron Cey to send to Night Owl if he doesn't have it yet.


  1. I'd spend a buck-64 on that Jackie.

  2. Already have the Cey (and he's wearing Cubs gear anyway, which I don't acknowledge).
