You've Got the Cutest Lil Baby Face: Baseball Card Nostalgia

Last Saturday, after a nice brunch at a local diner, Blake and I found ourselves on a mission to get me a new dresser. While we didn't find a suitable one, we did find bags and bags of baseball cards at a local thrift shop.

Most of the cards were from the '80s and '90s and it was a trip back to our childhoods as we dug deeper and deeper into each plastic Key Food bag.

The lady who runs the store into the ground wouldn't let us buy any cards at first because she hadn't priced them. We found a few gems that probably have no value other than sentimental for us, including an Al Leiter Rookie card - worth a whopping $2 on eBay!

The crazy is in the eye, even in '91

Both cards worth about 25 cents.
