48 Tony Pena
52 Bill Doran
182 Alex Trevino
198 Mark Eichhorn
202 Todd Worrell
286 John Shelby
294 Tony Phillips
306 Steve Buechele
391 Mark Davis
409 Chris James
411 Ken Dixon
473 Darren Daulton
550 Cal Ripken, Jr.
442 Gerald Young
589 Dave LaPoint
599 Gary Matthews
596 Steve Lake

Only one double in this pack, but several others that I already had, meaning I was only able to add ten cards to the set.

Not much to say. I always liked Darren Daulton, even if he is a bit... odd.

The best part of this pack? Cal Ripken, Jr. He's probably my all time favorite player. Like I said before, he played the game the way it's supposed to be played and he played every day.

Back in 1988 I don't think anyone had a clue he'd eventually break the consecutive games record. In fact, in 1987, Ripken's consecutive innings streak ended on September 14 at 8,233.

I just came across your blog thanks to Cardboard Junkie, and I'm loving it so far. 1988 Score was one of my all-time favorite sets, and you can't beat those borders! I also saw that you're completing a 1987 Topps set, which was the first that I ever purchased (and completed by hand), and still my sentimental favorite.
