Cards One Bringing Back the Oldies 1980's Baseball Edition

This one is like the Richard Simmons of baseball card packs. Sweatin' to Bringing Back the Oldies is a Cards One product. You can read about their other endeavors here, here and here. 20 cards for one buck... let's see what happens.

- Members Only offer (Whoa! This is how you know that this pack is legit. Only exclusive elite Members get access to this special $1.00 per month deal. Just close your eyes, don't look at the shipping costs or most of the pack wrappers in this ad.)

587 - Von Hayes 1984 Topps (Classic design. Fans of a certain show that involves Danny DeVito seem to know this guy.)

78T - Oddibe McDowell 1989 Topps Traded

- Members Only offer (Man! So exclusive that I get a second offer "card" in my pack. I doubled the 1:1 insert odds here.)

350 - Larry Sheets 1986 Donruss

535 - Marty Clary 1988 Fleer Update Glossy (A touch of class here as this card is not merely an ordinary 1988 Fleer card but an actual Glossy counterpart.)

394 - Mike Bielecki 1987 Topps

88T - Pete O'Brien 1989 Topps Traded

67 - Ken Oberkfell 1988 Donruss (That's right. 1988 Donruss.)

356 - Gus Polidor 1988 Donruss

525 - Phil Bradley 1987 Topps (Mariners de facto star for a few years...)

577 - Tom Browning 1988 Topps

620 - Cory Snyder 1988 Topps (Indians de facto star for a few years...)

87 - Mark Salas 1987 Topps (Hit .100 as a Cardinal in 20 ABs. Uh... reaching here...)

134 - Chuck Tanner 1988 Topps (Hey, a bona fide Hall of Famer... oh wait. That's not Bobby Cox.)

114T - Lonnie Smith 1989 Topps Traded

52T - Brian Holton 1989 Topps Traded (Holton looks like he could have been David Wells' fishin' - or drinkin' - buddy at some point.)

112T - Rick Schu 1989 Topps Traded (Former Portland Beaver.)

111T - Steve Sax 1989 Topps Traded (Big run on 1989 Topps Traded.)

46T - Gene Harris 1989 Topps Traded (As seen on Airbrushed Fridays. Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Beware the Cards One packs! This is quite possibly the only thing that costs as little as one dollar that could possibly cause significant buyer's remorse.

Steve Sax played for the Yankees? I still see him in a Dodgers uni. Always have, always will.

I completely missed '89 Traded, so I wouldn't have minded this. But only for that reason.

When did the 80s cards become vintage??? I like to refer to them as pure junk cardboard.

@Bigblue. I think 80s became vintage around the time that "your mom" threw out your cards from only 2 or 3 years ago.
