My KBO type collection just about doubled in size recently thanks to a trade package from Dan. But it's also a good indication of how few cards there are actually out there, or at least available.
My earliest KBO cards come from circa 1983, but they're all takji - similar to milk caps (remember POGs?). But the first card below might be just as old.
The blue-ink back has the player position, name, and then team name in parenthesis. Below that is his date of birth, birthplace, current address (yes, really), height and weight, something I don't understand, and finally where he went to school. Actually, I'm not exactly sure what that last bullet point really is. The starred question translates as "lucky hits?" so maybe the five baseballs can be used in a game.
In my next post, we'll jump ahead a decade and look at the most-recent line of sets!
Until then... Thanks Dan!
