What do you want on your Tombstone?

Was going to do a Post cereal post but saw Night Owl already covered breakfast for the day so here's some lunch instead.

Mad Dog is here to serve up some Tombtstone pizza for you. This ones from 1994 and I remember pulling these out of the cold box of Tombstone and then beggin my mom and dad for more pizza so I could get more. I had a Frank Thomas one of these as well but I think I shipped off to 2x3 Heroes.

Nothing like a good '90s commercial.

Advil and Pinnacle got together in 1996 to commemorate Nolan Ryan's first and last strikeouts. I don't think these came in the Advil box so I probably saw "baseball cards" on the side of the bottle and sent in thru the mail for these. I just realized I scanned them backwards while typing.... DOH!

I was only in the Boy Scouts for one year to do the soapbox race then quit but I got this awesome Jeff Blauser card out of it, a special COLLECTOR'S EDITION apparently. I think I started Wolf Scouts after Cub Scouts but don't remember much besides the soap box race and this card.  This card is from 1997 and notes Blausers statistics thru 7/1/97 he was hitting .345 with 11 homers and 40 RBI.


  1. I've always thought those Tombstone cards were the closest the '90s got to food-issue cards from the '70s (minus the logos, of course). I've always liked them.

  2. The Tombstone cards are cool, indeed. But those Boy Scouts...I HAVE to get the Dale Murphy!!!

  3. I have several of those in my collection. They are some of my favorite more modern oddballs.
