Big, Sticky, and Fun
Last night I had to venture to Wal-Mart to pick up a few oddball items like light bulbs and Draino. Of course my route led me by the card aisle as I was hoping to find some 2016 Topps. It seems some Targets and Wal-Marts get flagship Topps before it hits the hobby stores. I did not have any luck, but at least I had a trade package waiting for me from yesterday's mail. This was package from a Trading Bases member that involved 2 Orioles cards from my recent EBAY spending spree.
The big in the package were these 2 1984 Donruss Action All Stars. Donruss put out these sets during the mid 1980s that featured cards about twice the size of a normal card. If you look closely at the Hendrick card it may seem like the logo on his helmet was photoshopped off, but I am guessing it may have been spring training game. If not, I suppose it was foreshadowing of things to come 30 years later.
