Saturday Afternoon Old School Card Porn

I have been collecting since 83 and really hit my collecting stride in 85-86. I post a pic of the binder because Fleer used to have an offer on the back of their packs that if you sent in a certain number of wrappers and a few bucks, they would send you a binder, sheets (crappy), and a few cards. One of the cards they sent was Ellis Burks (RC). At the time, that was a sweet card, still is in my opinion. Ironically, or not, I keep my old Topps cards in there. Almost all the cards pictured 83 and newer I got out of packs. A few I picked up as singles over the years. There was this card show that they used to hold in the basement of the red lion in Springfield, OR. This guy would sell 84 topps team sets for a couple of bucks. Orioles, Red Sox, Cubs Etc. You will notice some 86 - 87 topps glossy send aways. Still remember checking the mail for those.

Enjoy!
