1989 Topps Baseball Talk #117

Card Review: 9.0,  the only knock on this card, besides the "record" on the back is it's size.  It's about twice the size of a regular card.  As far as I know Topps only did these for one year, 1989.  I bought the little record player (which is long gone) and one pack of these.  I'm pretty sure they came in packs of 3.  I don't remember for sure.  In any event, the Wallach is the only one that survived.

I listened to this a few times though I can't remember details (I'm tempted to get on ebay and buy a player, but then I'm sure I'd discover the card no longer works).  I know Wallach talked about not really knowing who the Montreal Expos were when they drafted him and that they weren't really on his radar.  I believe it also went into stuff like favorite food (mexican), number of kids, and the like.  If anyone knows where to get these recordings on mp3, please let me know.

  1. Great card. I agree... the size is sort of a pain. Before I found 4 pocket pages, I was struggling with a way to store these.
