Not A Wallet Card, But Close

My wife was clearing out a big 4-drawer file cabinet full of old receipts and tax documents, calendars and planners and such, and shredding it. She came across some old planners that she brought in to me asking whether or not I wanted to keep them. No was the answer, but two of them still had the "bookmark" in them.

I used to keep a daily planner book noting the usual stuff: doctor appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, and work-related stuff: customer events, meetings, stuff like that. I used to use a baseball card to mark the page of the current week or day.

The 1994 planner had this 1993 Cracker Jack 1915 Replicas mini card in it.
I'm still collecting this set, but unfortunately this is not the last card I need (Tris Speaker).
The card has a pretty substantial crease in it from the paper clip. I was happy to see it since I love this little set.

The old 1996 planner had this 1991 Topps Cracker Jack (paperclip shown for size). 

I'm not a big fan of mini cards, the 1915 Cracker Jack minis are cool, but the other Topps minis I barely tolerate, and I really can't stand the Topps Micro cards. Those are just plain stupid to me. Even though I'm a team collector, I actually had to remove them from my TCDB wantlist because people kept wanting to send them in trade proposals.

  1. That's really cool that your wife stumbled across these planners. The cards themselves might not be worth a lot of money, but they have a lot of nostalgic value. I have a drawer in my kitchen that I toss a bunch of random stuff into. Doubt there are any cards in there though.
