|1955 Red Man Tobacco Duke Snider, without tab.|
The Leaf Candy City Team cards are somehow related to the Special Olympics. The set has 12 baseball players (all of which I have) and 6 Special Olympics sports cards (none of which I have). I have no idea where I got them.
Near Dad's work in the 80s and early 90s was a gas station, a very ordinary Exxon station, where the owner got in on the baseball card boom of the time and sold a wide variety of cards. They had a great selection, and I found some wax packs there that I didn't see anywhere else, especially Pacific cards. I bought all of my Pacific Legends there, and this Duke Snider is one of them.
I now have exactly 20 cards in my approximately 30,000 card collection that were made post-1994, so it's easier to keep track of where I got them all. I bought three packs of 2017 Donruss and one pack of 2016 Donruss at the dollar store last fall, and blogged about it; that accounts for 16 of the 20 cards, and one of them is this Duke Snider.
I haven't really said anything about Duke Snider here, because it seems unnecessary. Thanks for reading!
