Card of the Day: 1/30/16

1987 Kay-Bee #11 Vince Coleman

     Kay-Bee Toys was the hot spot in malls across America for kids in the 80s and 90s. They had everything a kid could want, even baseball cards. Heck, they even partnered with Topps (as many stores did in the 80s) to produce sets with their own logo. As Toys R Us became more prominent, Kay-Bee's sales faltered. Kids didn't have to let their parents drag them through the mall any longer (albeit a small price to pay). Thanks to Toys R Us, kids had their own stand-alone store to visit. In 2009, Kay Bee Toys closed its doors for the last time and sold the rights of the Kay-Bee brand to Toys R Us.
