I am out of 1990s Cardinals players that I am interested in writing about. On to the 1980s.
My favorite 1980s Cardinals card has to be the first post. The first full year that I lived in St. Louis was 1985. Vince Coleman stole 100 some bases that season. Yes, there is a 1985 Topps Traded card of Vince, but I did not own that card until I was an adult. The 1986 Topps card was the first card of Coleman that I actually had a chance to own. Every week during the summer, two packs of cards from the Manchester Dierbergs.
The store has been remodeled at least ten times since I was kid, probably too conservative an estimate, but this cool brown and orange sign is supposedly still out in front of the shopping center. I spent a summer pushing in carts at this store.
At some point during the summer of 1986 I finally pulled a copy of the card. I don't remember the exact moment, but I am sure that I was excited.
Something else I love from 1986: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
