60 cards from Dollar Tree

I had to go to Dollar Tree a few weeks ago for something and while they didn't have what I needed, I grabbed three repacks of baseball cards. 20 cards for $1, or a nickel a piece. Not bad, although I have plenty of cards I would gladly sell for a nickel a piece, so why am I buying more? Oh well. Here's what I got.

Pack #1 - Not much in this one besides memories of 1989 and 1990 Donruss, 1987, 1988, 1991 and 1992 Topps and 1990 Score. The 1981 Topps card of Randy Lerch was the oldest card I got from the three packs. I found it interesting that a lot of the cards are from Traded or Updates sets like the 1986 Topps Bob Ojeda, the 1988 Topps Kurt Stillwell, and 2 out of the 3 1987 Fleer cards from this pack.

Pack #2 - I bought this one because of the Javier Castillo card. I'm a "thumbs up" guy. Lee Smith was dominant. The Lloyd McClendon and Lloyd Mosbey cards were back to back which I thought was strange since Lloyd isn't a common name. The Will Clark Score Dream Team card is nice. 

Pack #3 - I bought this one because the Craig Counsel card was showing and it shows his unusual batting stance that I grew accustomed to while he played here in Arizona. The card of Glavine appears to be the only card of a Hall of Famer or future Hall of Famer out of the three packs. 


  1. Those $1 packs are fun, but not much value..mostly a cool look back

  2. Each time I buy that particular brand, I end up with all 20 cards dinged on the same corner. Boo
