I bet you think I am referencing this Bo?
No it is this Bo that is the topic of this post.
A couple of years ago we went to an antique “faire” in Alameda, CA just across from Oakland. Of course I was trolling for baseball items and with some exceptions such as boxes and boxed sets of junk wax there wasn’t much. I did run across a guy who had an open box of 1981 Fleer Here’s Bo cards selling $1 a pack-so how could I pass up two packs? The set used photos and stills from "The John Derek Scrap Book", John being her husband. Each box held 36 packs and each pack was a whopping 30 cents. and had 8 cards and a poster. A set of Here's Bo was 198 cards in total.
Fast forward to yesterday when I decided it was time to open them. I wasn’t saving them for any purpose I just put them away and my great organizing party of 2016 uncovered them.
As one would expect the gum waaassss a little stale after 25 years,
Each pack contained one poster,
I wouldn't say the card stock was poor and it did remind me of the early Fleer baseball issues which isn't a shock. So what cards did the two packs yield? How about my "favorites"first, if one could have favorites.
