This one is for you Billy Kingsley. I know you like the Beach Boys as do I. No other band is associated more with surfing, California, bikinis, and the beach than are The Beach Boys. When this set was printed 5 odd years ago they had already hit their 50-year mark in the music business. Crazy to think that my parents had grown up with them as well as me and my kids and likely my grandkids. This 8-card Hobby Pack has a ton of inserts card odds printed on the back of the pack and The Trading Card Database has the complete 120-card set checklisted along with all of the insert sets. I'd love to get a Brian Wilson card as I don't think I have ever pulled one of those. Grab your Sex on the Beach drink and a pair of flipflops, we are going California Dreamin.
Flannels at the Beach....say what? Must be the Oregon-coast beach they are at.
#97: Dennis Wilson leading the rush. He definitely led a troubled life later on in his career, but not due to the shirtless overalls look.
#111: Bruce Johnston is still touring these days with Mike Love.
#29: Al Jardine - He actually played football with Brian Wilson in high school.
#72: I think I got a Mike Love hot pack as this is the first of a few.
#55: A mid-1970s shot of the group. I just realized my scanner is really dirty.
Top 10 #9: Here is my first insert. Part of the Top 10 set.... Dance, Dance, Dance....not one of my favorites
Here is a sample back.
There you go. I hope this starts your week off well and anyone have any good Beach Boy stories?
