Just a quick bit of curiosity today.
I got a package from Lifetime Topps not too long ago. It came with a few nice items, but when it came down to the cards that I was most interested in, those could be broken down into pairs.
A pair of reds.
A pair of greens.
(Suddenly I'm aware of all the Christmas shopping yet to be done).
And a pair of these Baseball Talk cards.
These have intrigued me for a long time. I already have the Orel Hershiser Baseball Talk card, but I have never played the reverse side, which resembles a record, because I don't have the player.
These came out in 1989, a year in which I was very active in buying cards. But I was pretty much focused on the Topps base set and I never knew these existed until a few years ago.
I'm not really dying to own the record-player that goes with these. But I am dying to know what each of these cards says when it's played.
Does anybody have these cards and has played them in the past?
Can you tell me what they say?
If not, I'll just have to find one of the players.
And explain to people in the house why I still need a record player.
