30 Day Challenge: Day 26

Day 26: A Favorite Oddball Card From the 80s

1989 Kahn's Cooperstown Collection "Cool Papa" Bell

My Uncle Ed got me this set I believe. The card stock is flimsy, but I think design is excellent. One of the cooler things about this set is that despite the numerous Hall of Famers Kahn's/Hillshire Farms could have put on this small 11 card set, they chose to honor a Negro League star. You didn't see a lot of that at the time, so cards like this helped fill the gap in the game's history.
