The Perfect Design

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.
It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.
On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!

Demi Rose Mawby

In today's world of so many social media options it is no surprise that a young woman like Demi Rose Mawby has become a well known model despite not modeling anything in America.

The short and busty twenty something has taken advantage of her physical features by using twitter and Instagram to become famous.

While we haven't been privileged to see her in any American films or anything but posed Instagram photos, she is still fun to look at.
Many of her photos feature her showing off her bikini and stunning body on the beach.

After looking at Demi Rose Mawby's pictures at the request of GCA, I can clearly see why he chose this beautiful woman to help kick off the first week of SaveTheBoobies 2018 event.  He recommended her when I did a recap of all the cards I showed off last year.  He also recommended her last year, but I wasn't able to fit her in.

She looks like she was perfectly created to be stared at despite her miniature stature 5ft3
The front and back are perfectly crafted.

Speaking of miniature and beautiful designs, is there anything better than 1987 Topps in terms of classic designs?

1987 Topps is the first set I ever collected.  The wood grain borders resembled the classic 1962 set while the team logo in the corner helped young collectors quickly spot their favorite teams while sorting through packs. The player's name is also in team colors.

This particular parallel is the red/rose/maple variant, but for the same of this month the extremely limited /25 fits the "shades of pink" category.

And much like Mawby...the backside is perfect too.  It contains comprehensive career stats, the most recent year, trivia about the player, random baseball trivia, and of course all the player demographic data.

It's the perfect baseball card.

Front and back!


  1. 1987 Topps was the first product I bought in mass quantities. My mom would take me to Price Club/Costco and I'd buy one or two boxes at a time. For that reason alone... it'll always be special to me. Over the years, I've also grown to appreciate the design more and more. These days it's somewhere in my Top 10 Topps base card designs of all-time.

  2. Love 1987 Topps. One of the best sets of the 80s.

    Thanks for introducing thia young lady to us...its very much appreciated!

  3. Nice Rose and the girl ain't half bad either. She has a bit more of a caboose than I like to choose. It is out of proportion than the rest of her. It is still nice though.

    As to the card I too like the 1987 design honoring the 1962 design.

  4. 1987 is my favorite set all time. I have so many fond memories of putting that set together with my dad.

  5. 87 Topps is the also the first set I actively collected. I always wondered what would have happened if I started in 86 or 88.
