The pinch runner card. 20 cents for a three pack of cards. Can remember when $2 a pack was highway robbery.

Benchwarmers in Gilmer and Allan's in Longview. Those were hallowed grounds. Hadden's in Gilmer would sell individual cards out of the cardboard long sleeves for Beckett prices. A dollar could you get a lot of cards back then.

My latest obsession: those Dr. Pepper cards the Rangers use at autograph sessions - more difficult to complete a set than you might think!
