This has been a crazy summer. Lot of things going on. Tribe is making their move toward the World Series. My son and his family is moving back home from Illinois. He is taking a sports writer position with the Ashland Times Gazette. Only 30 minutes from here, that's makes Grandma and Grandpa very happy !!
My desk and whole baseball room is in shambles right now, from lack of attention. I need to get on track and get back to work so I have to clear away the trade packages and get other packages sent out.
It looks like Chief Wahoo's long time reign as the symbol of the Cleveland Indians is going to come to an end. I have mixed emotions about it, but I am not of American Indian descent, and may feel differently if I was.It would be nice if they could modify the image somehow to make it acceptable to both sides.
Logo cards have long been part of our cardboard baseball team collections and here are few of mine.
These are Fleer cloth stickers from from 1968-72
These are die-cut so the center section
with team and logo can be peeled off.
The top and left stickers are from 1984.
The one on the right has part of a
puzzle picture in the back, year unknown.
Lower left sticker is on the back
of 1980 Fleer Famous Feats card.
The other two, again are die-cut and come from 1984
These are from 1982 and also
have puzzle pieces on the back
No year on these either.
Bottom sticker cards come with
various team combinations.
I do know these are from 1991 !
Bright blue logos from 1989.
The mini logo year is unknown.
The other three are from 1991.
Some of the newer logo cards.
On the right from 1999 is
Upper Deck Victory
2001 Topps on the left.
Finally, one I know very little about.
It has a Genuine MLB Merchandise logo.
Produced by U-Seal-It,
That's pretty much it for my Tribe logo collection. If you have any you don't see here, you know I'm always up for a trade. If you have any further info on any of these, it is greatly appreciated !!
When I started this blog 5 1/2 years ago, I never dreamed it would add so many new friends and Indian baseball cards to my life. My many thanks to all of you !!
I don't really like to combine trade posts, but I have received so many packages lately that I need to, to get caught up. I have a huge stack of Tribe cards I need to sort and put away so I can update want lists and continue to work on return packages ! All the generous bloggers and readers listed here sent many more cards than pictured. I appreciate every one of them, but just don't have time to post each one. Plus, it may not be very interesting to anyone but the one who sent the cards !
So here we go !
