Card companies today provide collectors with a number of “chase cards” for each set produced. We have autographs, relics, short prints, photo variations, cards with missing logos, cards with throwback uniforms, cards with players wearing no hats, and even cards with fronts that feel like the back and backs that feel like the front. No, seriously, we do. There is no shortage of non-base cards floating around in this day and age.

Well, back in my day, we didn’t have that luxury. And yes, when I typed that phrase, I pushed my glasses up on my nose, leaned back in my recliner, and asked one of my kids to turn their radio down. But that is the absolute truth. In 1989, I would sit on my bedroom floor, sorting my Topps base set that didn’t include any of the fancy frills above - all while watching the 35 channels we got on TV, and recording songs onto a cassette tape from the one radio station we could pick up in my area.
