Trade Me Anything XV: #1

We are now ten days away from the start of Card-vent, if you can believe that.  The world has most turned back to normal, barring the small sheets of textiles strapped to our faces while in public.  Seriously, who would have thought that I'd be using the word "mask" fifty times a day?  Just another stupid thing to fight about with 8-year-olds.  Anyway, I still enjoy bringing you the card content you desire, and at this time of year, it's a slow trickle of Trade Me Anything packages.

The first one to arrive came from longtime friend of the blog, Kerry.  

#ASG-5 Shohei Ohtani All-Star

1987 Fleer Jack Clark, Steve Lake, and Tito Landrum
Back when I first started buying cards in 1986 and 1987, the only cards I could get were Topps.  I've still never opened a pack of '87 Fleer, but I'm about 70% of the way to a full set.
2021Panini Prizm #156 Robin Yount 
I have no idea which of the 137 varieties of Prizm this is, but it look really great in person, not so much when scanned.  My Yount collecting has dropped off a cliff recently, but tastes, as they say, can change.

2012 Panini Golden Age #26 Jack Dempsey
The back of this card mentions Dempsey being a part of the first live boxing radio broadcast.  Could there be anything duller than boxing on the radio?

1994 Classic #23 Checklist/Portland Pirates 1994 AHL Champions
We're about two hours away from the start of the Portland Timbers' 2021 playoff campaign.  Let's hope for another Portland championship this year!
Great stuff as usual, Kerry!
