Pull of the Month - June 2010

I don't care if it is from the late 80s junk wax era. An early Greg Maddux card is a keeper.

1988 Donruss #539 Greg Maddux

A few months back a picked up a buffet of mixed packs at a 6/$5. one of those packs was the 88 Donruss - which may have been the last pack I went for. The Maddux made the 15 card pack worth it, other semi-stars in there included Rick Sutcliffe, Garry Templeton, and Dave Stewart.

and of course if you have a Pull of the Month, one must have...

Junk of the Month

2009 UD Piece of History - Historical Moments #177 Microwave Oven Invented

Are they serious. And this is my insert for the pack. A stinkin Microwave Oven...And I am pretty sure this is not the one that was invented either, this one looks like the one down the hall in Upper Deck's Coffee Room. Piece of History my butt more like Piece of Snot.


Click to enlarge these guys. Just wanted to point out Maddux's Rookie and Sophomore years. A collected 5.58 ERA and an 8-18 record. After that point, he was 138 games over .500 amassing s total of 355 wins. There are not many cards for which you can say after it was minted the guy won 347 games, this is one of them.

On the flip of the PoH Wave card we finally find out that Percy Spencer invented the Microwave. Still no picture of the guy but at least they mentioned him.

I agree about the microwave. We had one of the early ones, an Amana Radarange. I think it was just like this one,

Yeah Ours probably looked pretty similar. no fancy keypad on those classics.
