Collecting the 1980s: Coming Soon

Are you a baseball card collector?

I am.

Do you like oddball baseball cards and giveaways?

I do.

And I miss them. Desperately.

Oddballs added color, interest, and baseball card collectors to the hobby. This was true from nearly the very beginning of baseball cards -- after all, the first baseball cards were giveaways to help sell cigarettes.

But especially in the 1980s, oddballs took off and became a world unto themselves.

I want to write about these sets, and learn more about these sets -- and even collect at least one card from each of these sets.

Will you come along with me for this journey through the oddball wonderland that was the 1980s? I hope so.
