The growing pile of odd balls and other stuff is getting out of hand so I thought I’d try something new and start posting stuff to trade. The idea is that I’ll post it here and then move it to the trade bait page. I’m pretty mellow so if you want any of it just fire me an email and it’s yours for whatever you feel is adequate. Right now the want list page is only OPC hockey but that will be expanding.

 

1992 Kelloggs All Stars.

Now if you are from south of the border you’ve likely seen these as Kellogg Corn Flakes. Up here in Canada we like our cereal extra sugary so the cards were included in Frosted Flakes (they’rrrrreee great).

Differences:

Obv’s saying Frosted Flakes instead of Corn Flakes on the front)

French on the backĀ  (Did you know that french for outfielder was Voltigeur).

Once the Expos moved there seemed little market for french on baseball cards.

 

 

Every once in a while I get some baseball, football, basketball and other stuff in with my purchases. Although I don’t normally buy lots unless they have some OPC hockey I need, in this scenario I picked up a couple of vintage OPC baseball.

As far as I know they are the same as the Topps version but have the “printed in Canada” notification to set them apart.

Here they are in all their glory.
