Ok — This is the BurnCardBurn Project kick off. I’m totally excited to be launching this project. In a nutshell, I will be burning 1987 Topps Baseball cards every week to reduce the number of cards in circulation — read more here.
First up, was one of my childhood favorites: Ruben Sierra card #261. Ruben was a rookie in 1986 so the 1987 Topps card is his rookie card. Ruben could hit for power from both sides of the plate and had great years with the Rangers, finishing second in 1989 MVP voting. I’m not sure whatever happened to him. Anyway, Ruben, you are now immortilized as the #1 card to be burned in the BurnCardBurn project.
