Last of the two Topps Diamond code cards - 1983 Topps Bill Madlock and 1989 Topps George Brett

1983 Topps Bill Madlock - don't know much about him, but doing some digging around on his stats, it looks like he was a pretty good player collecting just over 2,000 hits in his playing career and winning National League batting titles in 1975, 1976, 1981 and 1983.

1989 Topps George Brett - this is a card I probably won't have delivered, though I'm hoping to get some interesting offers for it, since Brett is a Hall of Famer.

Admittedly, my early years in card collecting was spent with the likes of 1989 Topps, 1990 Topps, 1990 Fleer and 1990 Donruss - there is something I just don't like about this particular card. Maybe I've seen it too many times over the years and realize it was worth a quarter back 20 years ago and it is probably now worth a nickel in 2011.
