So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his […]

There’s No Team In Sets

One of my favorite early day inserts where those player specific sets that Fleer/Leaf put out. I looked forward to seeing which player would be chosen for that special 10-card tribute. So many worthy names and so many ended up getting passed over because only one per series could get that honor.

Important Trade Announcement – Introducing Charity Trades
