An Off Hiatus Trade !! Need help identifying a card !

Last week a yellow envelop dropped on my doorstep. Of course this means baseball cards ! Tony at Off Hiatus Baseball Cards had send a a nice stack of cards.

Here's what Tony send me !! First up, a cool pair of Rizzo cards !! the Cubs are doing much better this year and although Rizzo is not in the spotlight at the moment, given all the new additions like Bryant, he is playing his part.

Tony also added Glavine cards !!! Every package with some Glavine cards is a success !! Glavine showing off his non-pitching moves as well here !

The Flying Dutchman was also present with sevral cards. First up two signed cards (guess in person) from Topps 1978 and Topps 1982 !! Two very legit autos in my view !

More Blyleven was included ! Here's three Blyleven minis !! 1987 and 1988 Fleer and a 1988 Topps Superstar insert !

Tony also send me a strange large Blyleven, 3D like card. It does state Topps on the front, seemingly from an insert set numbered to 30 but other than that I have no clue where this one is coming from. Some pointers are very welcome !!

All in all, a cool package from Tony so thanks very much Tony for the trade !! A return package should be on its way soon !!

Thanks everyone for visiting my blog today !


  1. It is from a 1986 set:,so,ot,i100

  2. Buckstorecards is correct -- that Blyleven is from the 1986 Topps 3D set. At the last few cards shows I've attended, I've gotten a bunch of those fairly inexpensively, so I thought I'd share the largesse across the pond!

    And yes, those Blyleven autographs were obtained in person when Bert was with the Twins in 1986/1987, I believe. He was and is an incredibly nice guy who treated me as an opposing fan very well.

    1. Thanks again and awesome to hear you got the blyleven's signed yourself !! Thanks again for the trade !
