Card of the Day: 1989 Fleer Box Bottom Mike Greenwell

1989FleerMikeGreenwellBack when I was a kid, I used to go to the card shop hoping that they had a few empty boxes around. The reason: The Box Bottom cards. I loved these things. I mean they were FREE cards, and sometimes the players were pretty darn good. In 1989, I happened upon a box bottom of 1989 Fleer, one that contained the Mike Greenwell shown here. While this card is hardly worth the paper that it is printed on, this card reminds me of a simpler time in collecting, and this is evidenced by the happy-go-lucky way I apparently went about cutting this Greenwell. Look at those razor-sharp edges and corners, and even borders. /sarcasm.
