Kicking it old school…

Last night I was wondering around the internet and found my way to a page about the old indoor soccer league from the mid ’80s.

In particular I was checking out the Minnesota Strikers.

When I was a youngster I remember my folks taking me and some friends to Striker games on Friday nights at the Met Center.

I wasn’t a big soccer fan but it was something to do and as a kid I loved the energy of being at a sporting event. My parents weren’t big soccer fans but I would imagine Striker tickets were much cheaper than Twins or North Star tickets.

I also remember a couple of the players coming to do a little clinic at our block party on year.

I found a few scans of Striker cards.

I don’t remember even having any of these but I kinda want some now.

I think they are from the 1987 MISL set, but have no idea who made them.

I really like this one.

There is something about the green border that strikes me, no pun intended, well maybe a little intended.
