2009 Sears Crapfest

While getting a needed appliance at Sears, I wondered if the place still sold cards. So Iwandered over to the register, and lo and behold, crappy repack boxes right in front of me. But hey, it's cards, so why not.

I'll just report on the highlights

1988 Fleer-
Braves sticker. Yee-haw.
Denny Martinez. Hey, what's this. A small bitemark on the left side? Who would do such a thing- better go get the stake.
Ed "More chins than a Bruce Campbell convention" Lynch.
Hey, waddaya know, it's Jeff Montgomery's Rookie.
