John Kruk Sportflics

Well, there is a lot going on in this 1987 Padres Team Sportflics card. The scan is just a mess but that's just fine. A lot of players are featured here but the most important one, the reason I got it, is obviously John Kruk. The other players in there are: Randy Asadoor, Steve Garvey, Tony Gwynn, Andy Hawkins, Jimmy Jones, Craig Lefferts, Shane Mack, Lance McCullers, Kevin Mitchell, Benito Santiago, and Ed Wojna. Should I start saying Lance McCullers, Sr.?



Then there is 1994's Sportflics 2000. A look to the future?



Scanning these cards is almost pointless because they do look a big fugly. In fact, I think Sportflics cards made for GIFing. If I knew how to do that I might try. But I'm a GIF virgin.

Do you store your Sportflics cards (or other lenticular beasts) in any special way to encourage them to stay as true and flat as possible?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I have my 1986 Sportflics stored in a binder, but they're definitely curling. I only learned about the 1987 Sportflics Team Previews a few years ago... while looking for Greg Maddux rookie cards. Very interesting cards.

    1. I like the idea of the Team cards and try to think that back in 1986 or 1987 that it was pretty neat "technology". Probably trying to predict the idea of a video card.

  2. I don't think I do anything special with them, and just accept that they are going to curl.

    1. Yeah. Seems like a lost cause for cards that probably, realistically, have very little value. At least the ones I own have very little value.
