Random Miscellany

Well Mrs Archives and I are are just back from an extended trip out West, which included a stop in Scottsdale for some Arizona style spring training and meet ups with some very good Friends o' the Archive.  I'm pretty tuckered out, so today is a good day to show some random baseball stuff I think.

I've always been a big fan of the 1956 Topps Baseball Button set, it's just so-o-o colorful.  I used to have a lot of Brooklyn Dodgers stuff but have divested most of it.  This is my only remaining vintage Jackie item:

Here's a 1962 Bazooka box back strip, Hank is hammerin' and I love these little sets:

1973 Topps Mail-In Team Checklist partial sheet anybody?  I still need a type example of this one, which is a little bit of an unknown premium piece:

Did you know that in 1984, Topps would print off ten extra cards for you? Yup, it was part of a promotional test offer in the Midwest as this old SCD article shows:

Back at it next week kids!

Hadn't heard of those 1984 Topps uncut sheets with extra Strawberry's and Mattingly's. Not really surprised though.
