Last week I was in Tulsa, Oklahoma at a used record/cd/comic/trading card store. I went there looking for records and cd's. There were some pretty strange characters in the shop as you might imagine and I really was trying to stay away from the "geeky" side of the shop. However, I happened to stroll by a bargin bin near the collector's cards section and low and behlod was an un-opened box of USA World Cup 1994 Soccer Trading Cards. I'm not a card collector at all, aside from the old baseball cards that I somehow have managed to keep from the late 70s and early 80s. I think I paid $20 smacks for the box of cards. I halfway thought about leaving them unopened and preserving them, then thought twice and went ahead and opened each package. BOY did the memories start flowing. I was most interested in cards of retired players who were in their prime back in the mid 90s. I did end up with a couple classics such as an el Pibe card, a Hagi card, and some others. I found it interesting that out of this entire box I didn't have ONE BRAZILIAN player. Some of my other favs included the USMNT player cards. Some were produced of players who were national teamers at the time, but didn't appear on the US roster for the WC in 1994 (ie Peter Vermes, and Chris Henderson). One other US player card that caught my interest was a Lalas card. The back had him in an action shot with a little write up about him. However the front had him with red curls flowing, holding a guitar. CLASSIC!! One other cool card was one that was packaged in the set that was entitled "future stars" or "Young Stars" or something like that with a VERY YOUNG looking Ryan Giggs. I'm just wondering if anyone has any of these things left over from the older days. The box broght back memories of some of my favorite players.
