Remember the pine tar post? Well... it made me realize that there aren't a lot of pieces of cardboard in my collection that feature Mr. Brett. Sure I have a handful of base cards from different sets I own. But I don't own an autograph of him. And I'm pretty sure there aren't any George Brett memorabilia cards sitting at my parent's house either.
That's when I remembered a cool card from my childhood. It's the 1982 Spot-bilt George Brett. I never owned a copy, but one of my buddies did and he'd never trade it to me. I'm pretty sure I even begged my mom to buy me some Spot-bilt cleats in a last ditch effort to obtain the card.
In short... it has eluded me for nearly thirty years. But thanks to a quick eBay search, there's now a copy sitting in my inserts and oddballs binder. If you're interested in owning a copy for yourself, they're very affordable. I paid a dollar for my copy... and that included shipping. Yup! I paid full book and I'm proud of it.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
