Collecting baseball cards for me has been a big part of my life. It has always been a way for me to get closer to the sports and players I enjoy. I quit collecting in high school out of pure frustration of the hobby and did not return for quite a while.
This junk wax oddball set takes us back to 1986. The Kay Bee Toys Young Superstars set is my new favorite. Not because of the design, but for the checklist that includes two of my favorite Minnesota Twins pitchers.
Junk wax oddball sets are an awesome piece of nostalgia. I am slowly finding these oddball sets as I go through my cards again. This time, I re-discovered the 1989 K-Mart Dream Team set.
Baseball card collectors in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s will remember the small oddball sets issued by companies during the junk wax era. These sets were over produced and maintained little value, but have recently caught my attention.
2017 Topps Heritage came out two days ago. After seeing the what everyone else was pulling on Twitter, I made the decision partake in this year’s Topps Heritage release. Sadly… I could not find any.
