This Week in Baseball Cards: August 29

Hurricane Irene canceled a few baseball games this past week.  One thing she couldn't cancel...Bo Ronsy's "This Week in Baseball Cards".

And no...I had no idea what a Caldor is/was.

It’s been a slow baseball week, as we have been distracted by Quakes...


...and ‘Canes.


Still, it’s worth celebrating Jim Thome’s return to the team he made his debut for twenty years ago. His rookie cards included issues by manufacturers like Fleer, Pinnacle, Score, Upper Deck, and, as shown here, Ultra. None of these companies make baseball cards anymore. Of course, back then you could still fly Pan Am, purchase a Commodore computer, and buy baseball cards at Caldor.


Remember, gang, you can check out Bo's daily insights over at his site...Baseball Cards Come to Life.
