Milo Grummons, from Trading Bases, sent two Topps - Surf Laundry Detergent Baseball Cards Books, one for each of Chicago's MLB teams. (1987) I don't encounter promotional items very often, although I had recently added some promo baseball cards to my want list at The Trading Card Database. Pizzaria cards. How cool is it that someone could deliver a baseball card with your pizza? Or, to sit down in a pizza joint and order a thin crust veggie with a side of baseball card?! Yeah, those would be cool cards to have for any team.
So, back to these glossy picture books. Very sweet books. We had a pleasant afternoon of looking through these books and remembering cards from our childhood. I love it when Zip tells me stories of her interactions with the White Sox players, and I got to hear more stories, this time with pictures.
Thank you Milo!
