Tribecards from Outer Space: Holy bits of cardboard, Batman!

Good afternoon, or evening, or whatever time of day it happens to be when this post makes it live to the interwebs. I did not post anything for Friday night because I had just driven nearly 4 hours back home and spent the evening with my family. Priorities, man!

I am hoping to get as many cards posted as possible before the Razorbacks game comes on, so let's get ripping!

I have 5 packs of 1989 Topps. Some of these are missing cards, missing gum, blatantly searched, whatever. Freakin' CardsOne is a rip-off. I'll just say it here and now:
