Here is what I pulled from pack #3 of the 4 that I opened today:

Pack 3A

Notable:  Harold Baines, Chris Sabo’s second year card and Wally Joyner

Pick of the pack:  This one was rough.  I’m taking the ‘Turn back the clock’ – Tony Oliva card.  I know someone who wants it…

Starting Line-Up Figurine Commercial From The 1980’s

Back in the 1980’s baseball fans were thrilled to have action figures of their favorite sports stars!

Ladies & Gentlemen – Starting Line-up.

Ticket Stub #5 – White Sox vs. Angels – 9/17/1989

Ticket Stub #5 – White Sox vs. Angels – 9/17/1989

This was the first baseball game I attended after my family moved from South Florida to Chicago in the summer of 1989.  This game was held at the Original Comiskey Park.

California Angels 6 – Chicago White Sox 3

I have 2 vivid memories from this game and neither had to do with the action on the field.  (1) The New Comiskey Park was being built right across the street so prior to the game starting, we walked the entire concourse checking out all of the old pictures and displays that were up honoring the 80 years worth of baseball played at the Original Comiskey Park.  (2) Prior to the game, all kids were invited to get their pictures taken with White Sox Rookie Robin Ventura.  Ventura was not a star yet, but he quickly became my favorite White Sox player once he took over as the full-time starter in Chicago. 

I have searched and searched but have been unable to find that picture of me and Ventura…
