It should be obvious that he is my favorite player born in the 80s. Don't forget to enter my contest of favorite player born in the 80s here.
So let's get started...
Here are 5 categories
At the end are the 80s inspired cards to show off
Later In life as an early twentysomething I bought all those Thundercats toys I wanted as a kid and had a complete set of every figure made except the ultra rare European exclusive Stinger and The Mad Bubbler. I had a few Thundertanks, Cats Lair, and about a dozen sealed figures. Unfortunately I sold them all prior to the AFA grading system (similar to PSA or BGS for baseball cards) took off and made my loose complete mint figures worth thousands.
Favorite TV Show (not animated)
I am still amazed that my parents let me watch Knight Rider at such a young age considering some of the underlying themes of the show. However all I cared about was that cool car known as K.I.T.T. and wanting to be Michael Knight.
My dad being the awesome person he is took me to the Philadelphia car show when I was just 4 years old to meet David Hasselhoff.
There's the proof.
Survivor- Eye of the Tiger
As an adult there are lots of songs I like from the 80s and they revolve around the Beastie Boys, Motley Crue, and AC/DC.
This list gets very complicated in the 90s.
Favorite Comic Book:
I didn't read many comics until the 90s, but I definitely remembering having comic books of the Inhumanoids.
Favorite Baseball Card Set:
Now to show off some of my Cutch cards using designs from the 80s.
A few years ago I showed off a bunch of these, but my collection has grown quite a bit since then and Topps/Panini has introduced even more retro designed parallels to chase.
A few years ago I had ZERO Chrome Superfractors with a design from the 80s.
Now I have 3.
Cutch didn't have a base card in the 2019 Donruss set, but he did have a relic in the 1985 inspired retro set.
Throughout the rest of this week I will show more 80s inspired cards and reveal more of my favorite things from the 80s. Please don't forget about my contest and share who some of your favorite players born in the 80s are.
