Posted By: <b>Joe D.</b><p>I purchased this box full of unopened packs when I was a kid. <br /><br />The box was probably 7 or 8 years old when I purchased it. <br />It is now 31 years old (Copyright 1976 - Funky Sales Corp).<br /><br />Does anyone remember these? <br /><br />The Wierd World of Baseball.<br /><br />Some interesting trivia question/answers on each card.<br /><br />Looking at the box and some of the unopened packs - some of the questions are....<br />--What Hall of Fame pitcher started his career as a Kansas Bloomer Girl?<br />--Who stole 1st base from 2nd base?<br />--What team lost a triple header?<br />--What home run record is held by Babe Ruth's cousin?<br /><br />I am tempted to rip open the packs. <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br /><img src="http://www.internetville.com/stuff/box1.jpg"><br /><img src="http://www.internetville.com/stuff/box2.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Tom Russo</b><p>Very interesting questions. I don't remember those cards. Kind of funny that the product misspells "weird".

Posted By: <b>peter chao</b><p>Looks like a pun from the manufacturer, it's a Weird spelling of Wierd.<br /><br />Or it's an error box.<br /><br />Peter C.

Posted By: <b>Chris Wassmuth</b><p>I'm sure everyone knows this already but Germany Schaefer is the one that stole 1st base from 2nd in order to set up a double steal. <br /><br />Chris
