In the early 1980s, when I first really started to watch wrestling, the Junkyard Dog was one of my favorite wrestlers. At the time there were virtually no wrestling cards besides the 1985 Topps WWF set so picking up any JYD cards during his wrestling days is very limited. I do have a number of his 1985 Topps cards and his 1987 Hostess but this was the first time I came across his 1986 Monty Gum Super Wrestling Stars card. I guess not including “Juneyard” in my search kept this beauty from showing up.
After I came across the JYD Monty Gum card by accident I looked to see who else was on the checklist and I found this amazing Hulk Hogan & Muhammed Ali card. I remember Thunder Lips fighting the ultimate meatball in Rocky III, not Ali. Maybe I am remembering the movie wrong.
