I LOVED THESE CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(btw, I did the adopt-a-player thing too... i had a thing for the a's back in the 70s)

Great post! I had some of the 1983 set. As a 7 year old Phillies fan it excited me to no end to pull out the Pete Rose card and pin it to my wall.

The Jim Rice card always stuck out to me for some reason. He just seemed like a really nice guy.


I'll never forget when I pulled this Jim Palmer card out of the box. For some reason, after I found this card waiting for me in my morning cereal, I adopted Jim Palmer as my favorite player at the time and became a big Orioles fan.

LOL....I remember getting a Joe Pepitone card and becoming a fan of his, although his short stay with my favorite team, the Houston Astros, was a disappointment.
