Card of the Day: 1/23/16

1986 Quaker #3 Vince Coleman

     Have you ever seen a nine-year-old boy wrestle with a fifteen-year-old boy? That was the scene in our household during the summer of 1986. Mom and Dad worked and my tormentor, I mean babysitter, was my older brother. We went through extreme measures to be the first to open the new box of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars just so we could get our hands on these gems. I can't even tell you how many boxes of granola bars we consumed that summer. On several occasions, it sparked wrestling matches of No Holds Barred Battle Royal proportions. Big brother had weight and muscle that little brother couldn't match, but little brother wasn't afraid to launch a flying forearm off the kitchen chair the minute big brother turned his back. These cards certainly bring back memories and hold a special place in the Cardinal Sauce collection.
