I LOVE stickers! I loved them as a kid, I still love them now. If you walk around my house you will see file cabinets, stereo cases, tool boxes and book shelves covered in stickers. As a kid you could buy Topps stickers and the corresponding sticker books at the snack bar at my Little League park. I think the book was a dollar, maybe 50 cents. I obsessively bought packs and traded to fill that book. I wish I still had them. By the mid-80s we were told that the stickers lost their value if they were stuck. This made them a whole lot less fun and I still have a 1984 unstuck sticker of Don Mattingly that was supposed to pay for my college tuition. Anyway, by 1989 I had stopped buying stickers. The cover price of 25 cents for 5 sticker cards seems fair. In the case of each sticker card, there is a sticker (or two) one side and a card of a different player on the other. I think I would have preferred it if the card and sticker corresponded. I can't tell who most of these guys are because there are no names on them. Here is what I got! In each case I will refer to the front side as the sticker side and the flip side as the card side.
Front side: #54 of Andre Dawson, flip side #58 of David Cone.Front side #52 of a Cubs pitcher and #192 of a Blue Jay, flip side #50 Tony Gwynn.
Front side #93 of Keith Hernandez and #222 of Henry Cotto (?), flip side #9 of Paul Molitor.
Front side #86 of a Giant and #252 of a Red Sox first baseman, flip side #57 of Benito Santiago and the fifth and final card is:
#62 of a Dodgers pitcher and #305 of a White Sox pitcher, flip side is #22 of Bob Boone bunting. I wish I had more time to look at the sticker pics and figure out who is who, but I don't. Maybe you guys could enlighten me. I want to include these in the pack break I am doing, but I am not sure which team should count for each card since on some 3 teams are represented. Any ideas?
Thanks for reading. Oh, by the way, my blog the Collective Troll turned 1 year old this weekend and naturally there is a little contest. Vida Blue fans click here. Go Rays! troll out.
