My 'under the radar' blog featuring my baseball card collecting endeavors and hopefully some of my autographs collected in-person / through-the-mail.

In the mail box - a 1989 ProCards Las Vegas Stars team set
The adolescent picked up this set for $5 plus shipping / handling to see if I could actually get the Keith Comstock card in-hand - I would feel bad for Comstock if the image was anything but staged, but I think the photographer and Comstock probably had a good time goofing around.
There maybe a number of rank-and-file players from this set who had already bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors as this was AAA set as opposed to a set consisting of youngsters from the low minors - though their cards in this set were not their first professional cards, the notable players in the set are Sandy Alomar Jr., Joey Cora and Carlos Baerga.
