Second of two mail Days!

Matthew (Twitter) sent me a surprise mail day the other week which arrived on the same day at AJ's. And like AJ's they had both John Kruk's and Darryl Strawberry's. But he stepped it up too and included two Dwight Gooden's! A positive potpourri of cards.

I'd like to point out the second row, first card: The "Stars of '88" (it's wrongly position on the card backs, sorry). It's one of those unlicensed cards that was rampant in the late 1980s and it a great new one for my collection. That Topps Big Kruk, too, was new.

Generally 1989 Bowman was ridiculed for being over-sized and reverted to normal, standard size in its sophomore issue. Does Topps Big suffer the same criticism? How do you feel about them? I remember having to buy the 8 pocket pages.

Thanks Matthew! You're awesome.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Nice cards. Those big Topps aren't bad cards but the size really throws me off. Good stuff.

  2. I'm a huge fan of Topps Big! I'm trying to put all 9 series together in one binder. I'm missing one of the 1989 series though.

  3. Topps Big is a beautiful design. Hit me up. I have a card you will like.
