I was amazed when I went to Walmart last week..
They actually had Archives in stock.. They also had some Bowman and other product available, but Archives.. I was shocked.. SHOCKED..
So I bought some..
I like the cards this year. I'm on the fence on whether or not I want to try to complete the set or not, but it may be something I look into.
Goose Gossage's card looks more like a yearbook photo than a baseball card one..
Hey! I have a Canadian here.. Joey Votto is always nice to get.
Nice Rookie History card with Jeff Bagwell. Also nice to see guys like Catfish Hunter and John Smoltz.
This year, as we all know, Archives has The Sandlot inserts. I don't think it would be something I'd chase even if I go for the set.
Some nice names here, otherwise.. Tommy Lasorda, George Brett, Warren Spahn..
Jack Morris shows up in a card that looks like it could very well be from 1977.
I'm amazed... Shocked... That Topps acknowledged Pedro's time as an Expo here. Most of the time I see cards of him it's as a member of the Red Sox or Mets.
So there's the blaster I bought.. I'll probably buy some more at some point.
