One Card Challenged - 1987 Kraft Home Plate Heroes Wally Joyner

Today debuts a new series on my blog, called "One Card Challenged". I've seen on Night Owl's blog the "One Card Challenge", where people who only need one card to complete a set will post there hoping that someone has the card they are looking for and will send it to them.

This is the exact opposite of that.

Since I buy a lot of repacks, boxes of commons and the like, I have a collection of sets where I only have one card from it. Now I could just probably package these orphans to bloggers who could use the cards, but we don't have time for rational solutions. I have these cards and I must tell you about them.

The first post in this series features a 1987 Kraft Home Plate Heroes Wally Joyner.

This was cut out of a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, hence the back is blank.

It was a forty-eight card set, which apparently is very difficult to find in good condition.

According to here is the checklist:

1 Eddie Murray
2 Dale Murphy
3 Cal Ripken, Jr.
4 Milt Scott
5 Jim Rice
6 Jody Davis
7 Wade Boggs
8 Ryne Sandberg
9 Wally Joyner
10 Eric Davis
11 Ozzie Guillen
12 Tony Pena
13 Harold Baines
14 Johnny Ray
15 Joe Carter
16 Ozzie Smith
17 Cory Snyder
18 Vince Coleman
19 Kirk Gibson
20 Steve Garvey
21 George Brett
22 John Tudor
23 Robin Yount
24 Von Hayes
25 Kent Hrbek
26 Darryl Strawberry
27 Kirby Puckett
28 Ron Darling
29 Don Mattingly
30 Mike Schmidt
31 Rickey Henderson
32 Fernando Valenzuela
33 Dave Winfield
34 Pete Rose
35 Jose Canseco
36 Glenn Davis
37 Alvin Davis
38 Steve Sax
39 Pete Incaviglia
40 Jeff Reardon
41 Jesse Barfield
42 Hubie Brooks
43 George Bell
44 Tony Gwynn
45 Roger Clemens
46 Chili Davis
47 Mike Witt
48 Nolan Ryan

You can imagine how easy it would be to have them have some sort of damage or creasing. 

If anybody has any of the other forty-seven cards, I'm interested in trading for them.
