The gauntlet has been thrown down. Erik from New York has traded me the Holy Grail of affordable 1980s cards.
Giving: 2007 Topps UH #162 Phil Hughes (RC)
Getting: 1988 Fleer #616 Sammy Stewart
*I was not aware of this card until now. It may be the coolest card of all time. There is nothing premeditated about it. There's no Roger Clemens standing against a score board; barechestedness and shoulder pads are not involved; and this guy's teammates didn't go to work on his bat with a Sharpie.
*Sammy looks a lot like Alfred Molina here.
Strangely enough, in his big scene in Boogie Nights, he can be heard asking, "You guys wanna play baseball?" as he takes a hit off his crack pipe.
Does Sammy Stewart wanna play baseball? The answer is "Yes."
Keep the trades coming!
