Up For Grabs: Michael Jack Schmidt


Next up on the list of stuff I'm open to purging are my Mike Schmidt cards. Schmidt was one of the first superstars of the golden age of my collecting era to retire, so my memories of him as a player are not the most vivid. As usual, the full list of cards available is at the end of this post. There are still plenty of cards left from previous posts as well.


The 1984 Topps set is still a classic design in my book, but it's surprising how little space is left for the player photos, especially on these All-Star cards that only feature the single photo.


This is one set that my scanner makes look better than the actual cards instead of worse.


I kind of miss the drugstore novelty sets that (mostly) Fleer used to put out. Some of them had some pretty hideous designs, though.


The always popular 1987 Topps.


Topps stickers get no love compared to Panini.


It's been awhile since I've seen a "tribute" card in a major card set like this one.
