Logo Card, 1988 Sportflics #112
Usually, Sportflics cards don't scan well. But there's something about this logo card featuring the always-excellent bat-swinging cartoon bird that just works. Less is more, probably. But I like that you can see the three different-sized circular logos nested in one another with a sort of bullseye pattern resulting from the orange outer borders. Or maybe it's a vortex...a vortex full of humanoid, baseball-playing birds. It's probably best not to think about.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
