1990 Upper Deck

Upper Deck didn't do much different in 1990 than they did in 1989. Truth be told, I didn't either. 

These are great looking cards, but they sill look too much like the year before. Much like I did too.

I was raking in 1990 though, making $9/hour, and I spent a lot of it on these cards. I did take a great vacation in Washington D.C. that year, unlike the year before.

The Phillies are about to win the pennant, with former Tiger Chad Durbin a key cog in the wheel. Congrats Chad. Joe Buck just told me that it was 20 years ago today that Gibby hit the HR off Dennis Eckersley that would forever make him famous. I was playing poker that night at a buddy's trailer in Brunswick, Maine and quit watching the game in the 8th inning. It wasn't until I got home in the middle of the night that I would see the outcome. Congrats Kirk. 

Congrats to Paul Gibson for winning the Tom Monaghan look-alike contest....
