1988 Topps File Folder

 I don't know how many of these were done, obviously fewer than the 792 cards that make up '88 Topps set, but more than a handful.  I'd guess in the neighborhood of about 25.  I remember having a few of these as a kid (never the Wallach), though for the life of me I can't remember who.  I think I had a few of the '89 ones too.  As far as I know this was the only one put out of Wallach.  I currently have 14 of them.  13 kept in the box they came in, and one that I stuff other odd-ball Wallach related items in.

I picked up my first one sometime in undergrad.  It was a period of time during which my collecting was almost non-existent.  I had other ways to waste time then that I found much more entertaining.  I lugged one of these around for a couple of semesters until it finally fell apart.  After Law School, I slowly resumed collecting, as my previous ways of wasting time were no longer acceptable, and stumbled upon a guy selling these and I gladly took them off his hands.

  1. There were at least two Reds in the series, Eric Davis and John Franco. It would be nice to see a full checklist sometime.
