Finally, number one! My All-Time Favorite '90s Set...1994 SELECT!!!
There is nothing not to love about this set. I love the design. I love the colors. I love the photography. I love the nameplate. I even love that every card, except for the rookies, are horizontal!!!
Speaking of photography. There's not only two awesome pictures on the front.
There is a just-as-awesome pic on the back!!!
As you can tell from ole Chuckie Carr here, Score/Select had a great time shooting with some of the players. Thumb through a set if you don't believe me. (See John Kruk.)
Hmm...Wonder if a certain Dime Box Guy has seen this CC gem.
The overall quality of these cards are great. Kinda gives you the feel of a "high-end" set nowadays.
Chicks may dig the long ball, Mr. Glavine, but I'm just digging the guy that actually caught you batting.
The rookies in the set are quite a bit different from the rest of the base, but I love them, too!!! Check out the names in this rookie class from Series One.
Series Two, ahhhhh...Not so much.
You know it's rough when Steve Trachsel (a.k.a. Mr. I lobbed one in to Big Mac so he could break the HR record) is the biggest name rookie in the Series. Oh well. Can't win them all, I suppose.
That's all folks. The countdown is over, and I really want to know what you think. What are your favorite set from the last decade of the last millennium? And what do you think of '94 Select?
