The 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 26

"A favorite oddball card from the 1980s."

1988 P and L Promotions Cape Cod Prospects Frank Thomas #126 - though my collecting prime was when Thomas was neck and neck with Ken Griffey Jr. as hobby kings back in the 1990s, this card was kind of unfamiliar to me until the last 15 years.

I don't have reason to think this card isn't an original issue from 1988 since they have been graded by PSA - but besides the fact the card looks like an unlicensed Broder issue, maybe it was reprinted at some point to capitalize on Thomas' star power.

I didn't know this card existed until maybe 7 or 8 years ago. I grabbed one last year or maybe two years ago. Way too cool to pass up.
