1978 Donruss Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
To say I am not a Beatles fan is like saying the Cubs haven't won a World Championship in a while (for future readers, this *IS* May 2009). When I saw this pack, I grabbed it for inclusion here, but I had no idea what was actually in the pack. After opening it, I still don't.
These cards feature images that scream 70's. I sorta recognize some of the people on the cards, mainly due to the fact that the Beatles aren't on any of them. What's up with that?
Oh sure, I could look it up on Google or Wikipedia or whatever modern-day information store is popping up these days, but really, why bother at all?
The great thing here is the craptacular photos, the awful puzzle on the back of the cards, the funky design that I am sure will one day grace a throwback set of cards someday soon.
You see, the real beauty in these cards is the fact that I could very well have stumbled across one of the greatest 'Hall of Shame' packs known to mankind. Then again, you have not seen what horrors still lie ahead...
