Retro Beckett Baseball Card Monthly Hot / Cold – May, 1987

Share:

Welcome to a Retro Beckett Baseball Card Monthly Hot/Cold. This time, we’re taking it back to May, 1987. That month, the Edmonton Oilers dynasty was sealed when they won their third Stanley Cup, Phil Niekro made his 700th start and Eddie Murray became the first MLB player to get switch hit home runs two games in a row.

On the cover of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly? Minnesota’s Kirby Puckett, who would be even happier a few months later after the Twins won the World Series.

    Have over a 1000 baseball cards that I have been saving since the late 80s that were passed down to me. Im trying to figure out where would be the best place to take them to get them checked out. Hoping to find an honest person that will not take advantage of the situation and credit me for some of the cards. Would like to hear more about my options. Thank you

    Always found it funny that you can be on the ‘Hot’ and ‘Cold’ list at the same time.
