1985 Wichita Eagle-Beacon Card Checklist Part #7

1976 Linnett Superstars-Perforated #98
Dave Concepcion
A mistake was made on my last request for microfilm, so I only have 2 updates this week.  The best player in this update is probably Dave Concepcion.  One interesting note is someone tried to use an 1986 Topps Alan Knicely card to trade up to a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.  You can read the story about that here.  He failed in that quest.  This is the last update to the checklist.  It is complete now!

This update contains a few Hall-of-Fame players: Charles Barkley (Basketball HOF 2006), Kevin McHale (Basketball HOF 1999), Robert Parish (Basketball HOF 2003), and Cal Ripken, Jr. (Baseball HOF 2007).  The Charles Barkley pre-dates his 1986 Fleer rookie card by one year.  It also contained well-known professional basketball players Danny Ainge and Maurice Cheeks. It will only be a few months until this list is complete.
