I bought a lot of 5 Topps mini cards from 2012 and 2013 on eBay for just 30 cents. Two cards feature the 1972 design. The other three feature the 1987 design. I grew up during the junk wax era, so I can appreciate that wood grain design. Plus, we all have a ton of this stuff in our collections somewhere. The 1987 cards feature Hanley Ramirez, Mike Stanton, and Giancarlo Stanton who is the same person as Mike. The 1972 cards feature Carlos Santana and Ian Kennedy. The design is a little too funky and colorful for my tastes. I still prefer the familiar look of 80’s junk wax.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
