I'm not usually one to purchase already completed sets, but in certain instances it just makes more sense (and cents) to do so.
A couple of months ago I got the complete 45 card set of 1989 CMC AAA All-Stars for a whopping $3. It was definitely more cost affective to buy this set, because there was no way I was going to find all of these singly for anywhere near 3 bucks.
I know that after looking at these, some of you might find the title of this post a little misleading as most of these guys never became household names. But, a few of them did, and "before they were stars" sounds a lot better than "before a couple of them were stars".
So let us travel back 25 years or so, and see who was tearing up the minor leagues:
Now, on to the not so exciting update to my last post regarding the 1995-96 Mystery Finest cards that still had the peels on them. Well, I now know why they were in a ten cent box in their unpeeled state...(insert drum roll)... it was because the peels seem to be permanently stuck to the fronts. I don't know if it's some sort of chemical reaction or what, but after over twenty years of being affixed to the card, these peels are almost literally fused to the front. I tried every thing I could think of, short of destroying the card in my attempt to peel them.
So I guess these truly will live up to their name of Mystery Finest:
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
