The Thrift Store Trio - Part 2

Back again with the final two bags I picked up from the thrift store. An observation before revealing the contents though ... the bag on the right is half the size of the bag on the left but yet they were the same price. Personally, I would think that the smaller bag would be cheaper but it's the thrift store so anything goes.

First up, the bigger bag:

Here's the best card that came out of this bag, this Manny Ramirez rookie card. Pretty nice looking card and I've always liked 1992 Pinnacle.

There was also this weird Ozzie Smith oddball card. Have no idea what it's out of but it reminds me of something that you might find out of the Wacky Packs.

More basketball cards? Again, not really a basketball collector so if anyone wants these (along with a bunch of other basketball cards I've got lying around from this era), feel free to let me know. The Payton may wind up with my defunct teams binder.

There was a good smattering of football commons mixed in with everything as well. Reggie White with the Eagles is pretty cool.

Some more 1992 Pinnacle. The more I think about it, the more I think I like having Charlie Hough cards. The dude pitched forever (1970-1994) and although his stats won't get him into the Hall of Fame, the fact that he hung around that long is really cool.

And now, the last pack:

The last pack was all over the place. First there these 1992 Post Cereal cards

Then there were these two Donruss Coca-Cola Nolan Ryan cards

These two cards were apparently produced by Score but I have no idea what set they are from. If anyone has any info on them, feel free to leave a comment.

This bag covered all four major sports. These were the best of the football cards in the batch ...

Followed by some more basketball. There were also three early 90s Stadium Club hockey commons that I forgot to scan.

Then there were these two random 1974 Topps Reds cards of two guys I've never heard of but they just might make the frankenset. Otherwise, they'll be part of a new project I'm working on.

Then we had some Studio cards. I like the Fred McGriff one with him balancing the bat. Hrbek's expression in the 1991 card looks like he was kind of caught off guard.

The last of the good baseball cards included. 

Trying my luck at the thrift store was pretty fun, although as I described the scene in part 1, it wasn't great. There's a big Goodwill store a few minutes down the street from the seedy thrift store where I got these so I think I'll try there next time.

  1. Hrbek was just informed there will be no pie after all.
