That's why I was extremely excited to find out that Panini was going to produce cards featuring some of the main characters from The Bad News Bears. And as soon as I saw fellow bloggers post their copies, I knew I'd have to track some down for my own collection.
But as you're probably aware... I'm not a huge fan of busting current wax boxes. That's why I turned to Just Commons which offers free shipping if you spend over $10.
Amanda Whurlizer, Ahmad Abdul-Rahim, and Kelly Leak
Toby Whitewood, Rudi Stein, and Mike Engelberg
I was able to purchase all six of the base set singles for $1.25. Hopefully they'll eventually release cards of Buttermaker and two of my favorite Bears: Timmy Lupus and Tanner Boyle.
American Caramel Blue Back Mini's
They also had five out of six of the American Caramel Blue Back mini's, so I grabbed them for an additional $3.15. Now if I can only get my hands on card #148 which features Toby Whitewood.
Carolina Brights Green Back Mini
I actually have a mini of Whitewood, but it's part of a different set: Carolina Brights Green Back's. I'm going to attempt to build this team set too.
Tip Top Bread Labels
By the way, if anyone out there has any of the mini's I need for my set and is looking to trade them, please contact me. Otherwise, I'll eventually pick up the ones I need on eBay, Sportlots, or Just Commons.
In the meantime...
Who's your favorite Bad News Bear character?
Happy Friday and sayonara!
