Billy Williams & Ernie Banks – #3/50
This is card #8 of my recent 9-card purchase of modern-day Billy Williams cards.
What’s not to like about this card? 2 of the greatest Chicago Cubs players of all time on the same card… And to be limited to just 50 cards made and I now own #3. SWEET!!!
The only thing I don’t understand about this, is why they would use 1 color and 1 black and white image for this card. That really doesn’t make much sense to me…. If both were the same, and ideally in B&W format, this card would be even more special!!!

I don’t remember this game as a kid. By the looks of it, it appears to be a game issued in the mid-to-late 1980’s!!! I imagine that by today’s standards this game would be classified as being pretty lame. Still, the concept seems pretty unique.
Have any of you ever played this before????
