1987 Action All-Stars

What looks like Rob Broder. Smells like Rob Broder. And might or might not be a Rob Broder? Just about any card printed in the mid-to-late 80s with just about the minimum thought put into card design or text on the back. 


I'm surprised this card isn't listed as an error more often considering Strawberry's bat belongs to number 81.

These cards! Ugh. One thing I can say I like about them is that the photographs are different than what you otherwise normally see. Especially now with the the same image used on base and the 6 gazillion parallels Topps produces.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Simplicity, that's what's so great about them.

    1. I don't disagree. They are easy and simple cards and the focus was supposed to be on the photograph. And it is!

  2. I like these, because they remind me of early 90's card shows. I never bought them back then, but card shows are the first thing I think of when I see these types of cards. The card shop I worked out used to have 50ct. snap cases filled with Cansecos, Clarks, McGwires, etc. Good times.
