I don’t really know much about Depeche Mode. Their debut album Speak & Spell was released in 1981. They had a few singles hit #1 on the US Alternative charts in the 1990s.

Fun Cards Submission: 1981 Topps Ken Griffey Jr. by Lanny Ribes!

1981 Topps Griffey

1981…the year the Reds had the best record in baseball but were excluded from the playoffs. I’m sure Bud Selig had something to do with that. Ken Griffey Jr. was still in middle school I think at this point.

Fun Cards Submissions: Cincinnati Reds 2013 Draft Picks, Rounds 11-27

TWJ contributor Patrick mixed it up with the designs used for the lower rounds of the 2013 MLB Draft, grabbing three multi-player templates from the 1970s and two from the 1980s. I’m not going to post a rundown of each draft pick…that’s what Google is for. Or you can check out the Draft Tracker at mlb.com if you just want the vitals for these guys. Who knows, one of them might be the next Mike Piazza, or Ian Kinsler, or Albert Pujols.
