The weather is becoming more tolerable in the Chicago area. That means more time outside and less time indoors staring at baseball cards and eBay.
Welcome to Mail Bag #5! I seem to surprise myself each week that my blogging has lasted this long. By now I usually have lost steam and my blog has entered hibernation. Anyways, this week’s bag is light compared to previous mail bags, but it has some serious punch.
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.
Well, I made it another week. I cannot believe the mail bag has made four posts. Thankfully, I have been able to acquire enough cards to keep this going.
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.
