The wise Night Owl was kind enough to inform me there has been another 1988 Topps blog:
I want to pay respects to my predecessor, as I hadn't realized it existed. I'll go ahead and proceed with my version, since I'm "ranking" the cards from worst to first. But please check the link above as it's quite outstanding.
A few years back, before my revitalized interest in baseball cards, I threw out thousands of "common cards." The cardboard fodder wasn't good enough for binders, was cumbersome to move...I just got rid of them. Surely checklist #646 was among the casualties. Now I'm blogging about it! I regret chucking those cards, that's for sure.
All that being said, checklists are still terrible.
