Old school MSU baseball cards, featuring John Cohen the player!

Let's look back upon the late 1980s and how great MSU baseball was then (via these awesome cards).

We were all a bit antsy during the Sunday night rain delay during game two of the Charlottesville Super Regional between Mississippi State and Virginia. Some of us watched the neverending Rice-NC State game, I watched Arrested Development, and then there was our friend Lori, who decided to break out the old MSU baseball cards.

From that effort by Lori came these: a glimpse at a set of 1988 Mississippi State baseball trading cards! Man, these are awesome. It should be noted that I love anything old school, and these definitely fit that bill. Let's take a look at what a few of the players looked like on that talented 1988 team, including... hey, that's our coach, John Cohen!
