On the bandwagon

Over the Christmas break I won a contest on Grand Cards. I had to guess how may Tiger Cards he would pull out of a bunch of old boxes. I guessed closest so I got all of the Red Sox from said boxes, it came up to about 200 cards. Even though almost all of it was what most would consider” junk wax” I ended up with about 40 cards I didn’t have yet. He helped me put the wraps on about 3 different early 90s team sets. I always find it amazing how many early 90 cards I still need.




Jumping on the bandwagon Collective Troll started and others jumped on, I’m going to show off an oddball card that I received in my box. It is a Carl Yastrzemski card from Hillshire Farms. Since this is the first time I have ever seen one of these I know nothing about it. Can anyone answer some of these questions?
What year is this from? I need to know where to file it.


In what product did Hillshire Farms give these cards away? Just because.

Where there more Red Sox in the set? I need to know if I need to add them to my want list

Does anyone have any of these Red Sox? Because I need them all…

Why don’t they make cards anymore? I don’t expect anyone to answer this one.

I miss getting cards in with food products. I don’t eat cereal but I would start if Kellogg’s started putting cards in there again. Ditto Wheaties. Snack Cakes? I’m on a diet but when I cheat I can guarantee I would choose a brand with cards in them. I’m partial to a few brands but I would jump ship in a heartbeat for baseball cards. My dog eats Pedigree but if Purina started inserting cards again the dog gets a new diet.

Surely some marketing guru out there will think of using cards to sell products again but until he/she does I will have to live in the past and hope I get some oddballs in trade.

Oh, and thanks for the cards…
