I May Be So Close, But Bo Hit The Target!

Earlier this week, I showed off some great cards Bo (Baseball Cards Come To Life!) sent a part of my Time Travel Trading Project. Every time he sends me cards I have to praise how generous of a person he is because he always goes above and beyond. This recent mailing was no exception. In addition to the Time Travel lot, he also mentioned he had a few cards from my So Close! page. He was able to shorten the list of cards considerably:

Fleer had some really cool insert sets in the late 80's/early 90's. For what it's worth, I'm down to one card needed for the 1990 Fleer All-Stars insert set (Harold Baines)!

Bo also inquired if I had any sets I was working on. I've always had it in my mind to try and complete the 1981 Topps set, and shared my list of needs with him. He sent a few of those my was as well:

I only need about 80 cards now for this set. I may actually complete it one day!

The ironic part is that Bo's blog has been doing a regular series on the 1981 Topps set. It's quite informative. I even learned about a Hall of Fame cameo on one of my favorite cards from the set - Not once in 38 years did I make the connection! Anyway, if you're not a regular reader of Baseball Cards Come To Life!, you should be. Thanks again, Bo!


  1. Now that we're approaching 30 years... I really should put together that 1990 Fleer League Standouts set together.
