But his slider certainly sawed through a few bats in his day!! Leave it up to Nick at the "veteran" Dime Boxes blog to send me something that's going to leave me in a quandary.
One thing I've learned since I started blogging is that you have to expect the unexpected. This card that Nick sent me, is evidence of this. Take a look at this 1986 True Value Dave Stieb:
Now, here's the back of the card/envelope. As you can clearly see it's unopened.
Help a brother out here. Is the card of Dave Stieb inside, or am I going to open the envelope up and find a set of lock washers or a key of some sort? I've never seen anything like this before. With a little research I found out that the set is 30 cards, and features a good selection of players including George Brett, Andre Dawson, Robin Yount, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan and Reggie Jackson.
The first place I went to hunt for these cards is trading card database.com, where I found the image of Steve Garvey's card, front and back.
I would feel better about opening the envelope if I knew that Stieb's card is inside.
Any knowledge about these would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading, Robert
