1991 Jumbo California Sunflower Seeds #23




















Card Review: 9.6  Call me nuts, but I really like this card.  As far as these cereal box type give aways go, this one is great.  Simple clean design, with a very vintage feel to it, plus complete career stats without any goofy product info.
Fun Facts: *I know next to nothing about this card, I assume these came in bags of sunflower seeds.
*This was an ebay purchase
*I never pulled a Tim Wallach card from a box of cereal, cracker jack box, or any other food product, though I was given a few by friends who were lucky enough to do so.  I tended to always get George Brett or Robin Yount for some reason.
Number of this card in my collection: "1"  this is my one and only.  I am on the look-out for more.

Update 3/23/12: picked up a 2nd one, and its in as good of shape as I've ever seen any card, much less one that was supposed to be in a bag of sunflower seeds.  I'm guessing a few of these found their way directly into the secondary market.
