It's election day. I won't badger you to get out and vote. Either you have, will, or won't. But to celebrate our civil responsibility lets go back 22 years to the first election I ever voted in. I was 18 in 1992. Had graduated high school that spring and started college that fall. The 1992 Presidential election was an interesting point in history and for the first time a third party candidate had a shot. Of course Perot ruined any chance he had by pulling out early from the race and then jumping back in.
I found a box of this Wild Card Decision '92 at Don's here in Anchorage and couldn't pass it up as I've started a new collecting emphasis on History. And for 5 bucks for the box why not.
You get 8 cards per pack and there's the Ross Perot special subset. Oh I hope I get one or two!
100 cards to the set. I should be able to put at least one complete set together.
First Up Bob Dole. I always chuckle remembering Norm McDonald's portrayal of the Senator. "Bob Dole never got caught with dead hookers in his closet!" Classic stuff.
I ended up pulling a Olive Stone with the 100 stripe! I don't remember what happened to AAA Sports the company that put these out, but I'm sure I'm a couple decades removed from being able to trade this in.
