|KIND OF A CROSS BETWEEN '89 AND '91 FLEER.|
|I CAN GET LOST IN THOSE STATS.|
WHY I LIKE IT
- It's a Brooks Robinson card and it celebrates his defensive prowess. I love that the reverse has all fielding stats. You don't see that on other cards.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
- The 16-card player set was issued in conjunction with Rawlings, honoring some of the game's Gold Glove winners. Gold-Glove-caliber defense excites me more than Silver-Slugging-caliber offense.
HOW I ACQUIRED IT
- By buying a lot of that awful tasting chocolate drink. Collecting this set reminded me how I would get my mom to buy certain cereals as a kid that had cool toys. Seemed like the ones that had the best toys also tasted the worst. Mom didn't care; she made me eat it. Same dilemma here.
