Today was a sad day for MASH tv show fans as David Ogden Stiers, better known as Major Charles Winchester III, passed away at the age of 75. His role fit really nicely into the show earning two Emmy nominations for his performance. Back in 1982, Donruss capitalized on the success of the show with this 66-card set. The complete checklist can be found here on The Trading Card Database. Surprisingly, this pack has gum...I thought Donruss and Fleer could print cards, just not with any gum in there. Or maybe that is just for baseball. Also, did you know that there were 125 million people watching the finale of MASH in 1983? It was that popular. Anyway, grab your favorite moonshine distilled alcohol and a box of MREs....let's slice this pack open.
#46-The odds were only 9% that I would get a card of David in this pack, but here we are.....RIP!
The backs are a puzzle image, but wait there's more. The puzzle requires 121 pieces...and each of these 121 pieces can be found with two different card fronts. So a master sets of MASH cards is 242 different cards. Crazy....
There you have it. I hope your week goes smoothly!
