As my previous couple of posts have mentioned, I have not had much opportunity to work out trades the last few weeks. Now that my son's baseball season is over, I hope to get back in the swing of things. You know things have been slow when it has been almost 2 weeks since I recapped a TCDB trade. My latest one arrived earlier this week from member alh. He sent a huge stack of mostly 1980s Cardinals.
This may look like a regular 1987 Fleer card, but it is actually the last Glossy version I need to complete my team set. It is nice to put the 25 card team set to bed. It always seems like I need an Ozzie card to finish a team set from that time period.
I also received 16 different 1988 Fleer Glossy cards. This team set has 28 cards, of which I still need 2. Surprisingly they are Lance Johnson and a Tony Gwynn/Vince Coleman card. You may wonder why I only scanned the Tudor and Herr cards. Both of them are being inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame in August. I have mentioned it a ton of times before, but I loved the Whitey Herzog teams of the mid 1980s. These 2 were key parts of 2 World Series teams in 1985 and 1987.
