Zeprock Collection

RE: Zeprock Collection
I've posted several food issues since I started this thread and I also did a post on cards with an automotive theme. There were many other places to pick up oddball cards especially in the 80s and 90s. Here is a mix of cards from businesses other than the grocery store, gas station or restaurant. See if you can guess which type of business each of these cards came from.

<IMG SRC="http://www.zeprock.com/ZC/OBV-1.jpg" HEIGHT=350>    <IMG SRC="http://www.zeprock.com/ZC/OBV-2.jpg" HEIGHT=350>    <IMG SRC="http://www.zeprock.com/ZC/OBV-3.jpg" HEIGHT=350>
1986 True Value #26 Nolan Ryan (Representing the hardware industry is this card which came in a four-card panel featuring three player cards and a True Value Hardware product card. These were originally distributed at True Value Hardware stores with the purchase of $5 or more.)
1988 MSA Fantastic Sam's Discs #9 Don Mattingly (These discs were produced by MSA and given away free each time a customer visited a Fantastic Sam's, a national chain of family haircutters with more than 1,200 locations. Each disc is attached to a contest disc with a scratch-off for a potential prize. I thought it fitting to have Mattingly represent the hair care industry as he had such a "hairy" relationship with Yankees owner George Steinbrenner who benched him in 1991 because he refused to get his hair cut.)
1989 Yankees Score Nat West #32 Thurman Munson MEM (This is a tribute card issued on the tenth anniversary of Thurman's death included in this set produced by Score and given away at a 1989 New York Yankees home game. The set is sponsored by the United Kingdom's National Westminster Bank.)

1990 Aflac #NNO Ryne Sandberg (This is an Aflac card representing the largest provider of supplemental insurance in the United States. I'm guessing on the date as there is none printed on the card and I haven't been able to find any other info on it. I don't know if it's a one-off or if it is from a set.)
1990 Pan Am Team USA Red BDK #23 Frank Thomas (Printed by the BDK Card Company, this rookie year Frank Thomas card represents Pan American World Airways and is from a set featuring the 1990 Team USA.)
1994 Armco Steel Company Iron Man #NNO Cal Ripken Jr. (This unlicensed Ripken card represents the American Rolling Mill Company also known as Armco Steel based in Middletown, Ohio. It makes sense that a steel company would feature a card of the Iron Man.)

1998 McGwire Dental #1 Mark McGwire (Representing dentistry, the back of this card has advice on how to protect one's teeth. This card is a one card set.)
1999 Sotheby's Halper Auction Amazon #2 Babe Ruth/Last Bat (This is from a 16-card set issued to preview the sale of the Barry Halper collection by Sotheby's Auction House. The late Halper's collection was huge and unrivaled and prior to the auction Sotheby's released a three-volume book, The Barry Halper Collection of Baseball Memorabilia, that included over 1,500 color photographs of the collection, giving history for many of the items, details about Halper's collection through the years, and a history of baseball. I have this book as well as a sheet listing all of the items in the collection and what they sold for. Many of the items ended up in the Hall of Fame although after Halper's passing there was some controversy as to the authenticity of some of the items.)
2007 Upper Deck Holiday Inn #16 Derek Jeter (Representing the hotel industry, this Jeter card is from a 60-card set. Members of the Holiday Inn Priority Club who stayed at a participating Holiday Inn hotel between May 31, 2007 and July 30, 2007, would receive one, four-card pack for each night's stay. Each pack contained three base cards and one Cal Ripken, Jr. insert.)
I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
