Writing the Book on Super Trades

 Mark of The Chronicles of Fuji blog sent over one super trade. Collect-A-Books were a 1980s gem that never found their way into my collection, until now. These take the 2016 Topps Bunt Program insert to the next level- these are mini magazine cards, with articles and stats. I wasn't sure how sturdy the pages inside would be if I tried to scan them, so just take my word for it.
 This is a beautiful card.
 Some late 90s awesomeness from Topps Embossed!
 Can't beat Rollie's Stache or Pete's awful haircut, either.
 The Virtual Reality parallel showed stats that players could have had without a players' strike in 1994. Bummer, though Topps tried to make the best of a bad situation.
This is a neat acetate card, probably part of a game from Topps called hot button baseball. I think Jacque would tell you he's a little better at stealing bases than that!

Thanks Mark! These are fantastic!
