Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band 10-card promo set
I just spotted these while browsing the net. Not sure if they've ever been talked about here or listed on Jeff's site so I figured I'd post pics. 10-card promo set from the very first configuration of "Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band". My mother is actually a huge collector of "The Band" stuff (Rick Danko in particular) and I believe she has 1 or 2 of these sets in her collection. They were made in 1985. The set also came with a stick of bubble gum. Pretty cool cards!

Nice, they must be part of a larger set as they are numbered 25 - 33.

I picked up that little Ringo set off the bay several yrs ago - lots of talent there.

I was just talking about this set with someone whose brother was a roadie for the James Gang. She brought it up after we agreed that the cards could not have been printed in 1985, even though that date is on the card backs. I approached the set from being a fan of the Eagles and Joe Walsh, knowing a little of their history. You're right about the set showing the first incarnation of the band because that's the only time Joe Walsh and the late, great Billy Preston were in the band together. This set promotes the band's first album which was released in 1990 so the unwritten date must be 1989-1990.

I think the 1985 date on the cards has to do with the photographer's credit.

The gum has the same generic type of wrapper as the Foot Locker athletes promo set.

P.S. Joe Walsh isn't on many cards and neither is Billy Preston. The Ringo Starr All-Starr Band card is probably the best photo of Preston. I think the Sgt. Peppers cards show him from more of s distance.

The set is only 10 cards. I don't know why the numbering is that way but Big League Cards printed a lot of small issue promo sets and that might just be its company numbering accounting for all the cards on a sheet or for all the different cards they printed that year.

Why, I'm insulted. I remember your comments for at least five minutes, wolfie.

The current Ringo band is also very talented.

He sings that song "I'm the Greatest" which reminds me of myself.

No brag, just pure (totally) unjustified egomania!

Well, I wanted to choose my words carefully and there's also the fact that I type slow.
