I pulled another of these 1968 Game Rookies. At least this guy is an Astro although I had to look it up to identify him.
The baseball flashbacks cards have been part of Topps Heritage forever. I pulled two of these.
I think the front border of these is very unattractive.
Another long time Topps Heritage insert is the News Flashback and I got 2 of those.
This was interesting to me as we have a niece who is very heavily involved in Special Olympics. She's a swimmer.
Someday I'm going to try and acquire a card for each US President, if that can be done. Between Topps Heritage, Allen and Ginter, various Panini releases and old Donruss Americana releases, I think I have a pretty good collection of presidents now.
Hey, another buy-back, this time with a gold stamp. Apparently, according to this, there are 5 flavors of foil stamps, bronze (most common), silver, gold, blue and red (most rare). Comparing this to the Joyner card I posted yesterday, I'm pretty sure this is a gold stamp. How excited I'm supposed to be about that is unclear to me. On the one hand, it's a 1989 Topps card of which I already have a better example. This stamped card is suffering for poor color registration, making it look muddied and out of focus. On the other hand, it's got a gold stamp. How rare is that supposed to be?
The other common inserts, like "Then and Now" and "New Age Performers" exist this year but I got none. Boo.
I did pull a good selection of Phillies and Astros at least.
