As Promised: Late '80's Rummage Sale Insanity

See, I wasn't kidding. Here are the first nine Greenwells. 
The back is also full of Greenwells and there are yet more rolling around elsewhere.
This is but a single sheet from a stack about 8 inches high, plus a shoebox holding about 1000 more cards (mostly football, sadly). I don't need these but couldn't resist because I got the whole thing for $7!!!

I cannot, for the life of me, put these things into a coherent narrative of who those person was or why/what they collected, and anyone wanting to offer something up should feel free. There are the 35+ Greg Vaugn RCs, the beautiful:

Old HOFers:

HOFers as young prospects:

Banned players:

Warnings to baseball card prospectors:
Surprisingly great cards:

And one perplexingly bad one:

And these are scant selections from a MASSIVE stack.

  1. It's interesting to see the sheets like that. And a little psychedelic.

    Hm. Why would anyone pick that Mattingly photo for a card? He looks like a Cornish game hen.
