Here is Pags’s Topps rookie card. It’s weird seeing him without his mustache so this will be the only pre-1987 card shown here.
1987 Fleer League Leaders
The pinstriped design here looks great on a Yankee card.
Always glad to throw in a Sportflics card.
1987 The Press Box
This was an unlicensed 7-card set I got around 1987 or 1988, I think in a blister pack of random Yankee cards I got in a stationary store.
Good-looking card on that era’s classic baseball card design.
1987 Topps Glossy Send-Ins
These cards were a big deal at the time – nice to see Pagliarulo get one.
The red-white-and-blue design is one of my favorites from this era. Looks like a home run swing at Fenway Park.
I’m not much of a Donruss fan. This is probably my favorite Donruss design of the era, due to the colorful borders.
Overshadowed by Upper Deck, Score had some pretty good photography back in the late 1980s.
1989 Upper Deck
Upper Deck was coming up with shots that hadn’t been seen on cards before. Nice shot of Pagliarulo charging a ground ball, although his face is covered in shadow.
