More 80's Brewers Baseball Card Fun


Are we sure this is Paul Householder? Because to me, it looks like it could be some County Stadium usher just hanging out in a Brewers jacket. If this man is indeed Paul Householder, he had a non-descript two year stint with the Brewers where he really didn't do much of anything. Baseball Reference.com lists his number 1 similar batter as none other than Faye Throneberry. Well, alrighty then.


In regards to the 1986 Topps set, it is pretty brutal looking. Nothing much going on here and most of the photos are of the players doing absolutely nothing baseball related (including photos of guys who look like County Stadium ushers). I guess the same could be said for the '86 O-Pee-Chee set as well, except half of that card was in French.

The best 80s / early 90s Brewer moment was when fat useless Joey Meyer got traded to a Japanese team called the Whales. He was fat and he was traded to the Whales! That's funny.

Speaking of the French... Did anyone else notice that the ad above is for a French fast food restaurant?

FAIL: Adverstisement demographic.

Next time I travel to France to purchase a white flag I'll make sure to eat at Q-Quick. Whatever the fuck that is.

I love how everything is Very Important... "Very important Beef", "Very Important Cheesy".

To bad deodorant isn't very important.
