Heya! This week, I ripped open a pack (okay, I gingerly opened a pack) of 1968 Fleer Iron-ons for my weekly "Bustin' Our Wax" YouTube video. To my great delight, I managed to pull an Indians script transfer!!
Of course, there was gum stuck to the thing. There's something to ponder: gum, from 1968, stuck to the transfer. The gum is older than I am. That is pretty gross. Granted, it's not much older than I am, but I sure in the heck wouldn't want to pop gum into my mouth that was even remotely close to my age!
I am so glad I decided to grab this pack off eBay. Wahoo!!
Note: "Bustin Our Wax" is a weekly program on YouTube through my channel. It launches each Sunday at 3pm Central time. Here is the "Baseball" playlist with the series.

I'm always looking for things that aren't cardboard to add to my Indians collection. When i fond something that is "almost" akin to cardboard, I can't seem to win over the urge to splurge. That's what happened here. I saw this and had to have it.
I'm a little disappointed that the bat is not a separate vinyl sticker. But, we do get Masterson and the Block C to peel off and stick on something, if we so choose. Of course, we will not choose to do that because I prefer to keep this little guy in tact. The item is basically 5x7 inches. there were two Indians in the set: Masterson and Jason Kipnis. Looks like I'll be on the hunt for a Kipnis!
