Razor Shines

The first set I ever collected was 1985 Donruss. I remember buying Rack Packs from the Family Dollar just because I needed one of the three cards on the top. Here is the last card I bought to complete the set:

RAZOR SHINES!

Razor, the best name in baseball, has managed and coached in the minors for several organizations. This year, he will manage the Clearwater Threshers, Florida State League affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.

I am 2 cards away from completing my first set since 1991. It's only the 90-card UD Masterpiece set but boy, is it a great looking set. (missing #1 and #8) Anyway, here's to Razor Shines and the satisfaction of getting that last card.

Razor Shines! I love it, I have to get one of those cards. He could have had a killer career in Porno after baseball!

I pimped your blog in my blog links, check it out along with my all star fan-fest card give away.

Nice job on finishing the set. No better feeling to see no empty pockets in the binder. I never noticed that name before. It ranks up there with Rusty Kuntz and Oscar Gamble's fro.

I'd love to know what Razor is up to (or was) after his BB career. Just don't tell me he opened a barber shop....
