#261 - Checklist, Cards 133-264

What a card: This is the second of six checklists in the set, and I already feel myself running out of things to say about this card.

My observation on the front: There is a streak of three Yankees in a row at cards 179, 180 and 181. I wonder what the longest such streak is with any team? I'm sure with the way Yankees acquired players in the '80s, three isn't even close to their best.

More opinion from me: Tilted rectangles are big part of 1985 Topps, I still don't know if I like it all that much.

Something you might know: Four names on the checklist front are now in the Hall of Fame.

Something you might not know: I'm just noticing that the colored outline is green on the top and on the right and bluish on the left and the bottom. I am now going to check if all the checklists in the set are like that.

My observation on the front: That's a lot of capital letters. It's like the checklist is shouting at you.

The blog wants to speak now: The Ballgames and News categories are updated. Baseball stuff, good and bad.

179 is An Angel and 181 is a Red Sox
