A Couple of PWEs from Mark Hoyle

The always generous Mark Hoyle sent me a couple of PWE's with some Red Sox oddballs in them.  Some pretty decent harder to find stuff all the way around.

The first PWE had the complete 1981 Coca Cola team set in it.  Unfortunately this was a set I previously owned.  Not a problem though, I always appreciate cards.

The second PWE had what I assume to be the complete team set of Broder cards from 1987.  It is tough to tell the year because there are no dates or copyrights on any of the cards.  Just a photo and a name.
So here we have Marty Barrett, Steve Curry, Jody Reed, Bob Stanley, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, Jim Rice, Ellis Burks, Al Nipper, and Don Baylor.

The only way I was able to figure out the year on this set was due to one of the duplicates, Dave Henderson.  These pictures were clearly taken during Spring Training in most cases and Henderson only spent one Spring Training with Boston, 1987.  It is interesting to note that Curry, Reed, Burks, and some of the other duplicate players had yet to make their Major League debuts at the time.

Thanks Mark!


  1. You are correct. It is the 87 Broder set series one. There is a second series with another 18 cards. Has cards of a lot of the same players . It's a little more difficult to find.

  2. I have a few of the 87 Series Two cards, including likely the only Major League cards of Danny Sheaffer and LaSchelle Tarver with the Red Sox. I think a lot of the Broder stuff is somewhat hard to find. I have never seen any records for what all is out there.

    1. I remember going to card shows back in the mi to let 80's the Broder cards were everywhere
