We start with 1995 Ultra and work our way back in time...to the 80s:
95 Ultra held some promise. The foil around last names was too thick. First names are much easier to pick out on these cards. Photography was good! Promises were broken with the card's backside. Name and stats hard to read against the two-toned pictures.
Keeping me a bit off-centered which isn't too difficult, Mark Trammelled me:
1993 Triple Play 1989 Fleer Super Stars
I can't say any of these designs are favorites but I do like the color of Score. These Trammell's were needed. Below, we have a pair from 1992 Triple Play. I believe the design catered to younger collectors. For some reason, this hot red, orange and yellow combo makes me crave sunflower seeds. Makes NO sense. I don't like them in the first place.
Here's a little splash o'green just in time for St. Patty's Day with 1993 Select. This set is probably best know for a condition sensitive Jeter rookie. Behind all the hoopla, there were the proven players making their humble appearances:
Mark, thanks for taking the time to fill an envelope. It's always appreciated! I have a little something on the way to you!
I do want to share another card I received in January. It was a kind thank you from P-town Tom at Waiting 'til Next Year. From 2013 Topps, the Kaline 1954 RC patch. I love the blue borders. The orange really stands out. The manu-patches are either hit or miss, even within the same set. This one works for me. Tom, thank you!
