It Was All Yellow

 Let's bust this!

Let's do this!

Wrigley Ivy is always a nice way to start a pack, and there's a second appearance of that stadium with the bricks visible on Van Slyke's card. That swing-and-miss photo is a very unflattering photo choice for Sabo's card. Swing and a miss! And Expos content, too!
More Expos content! And a Met as well! The multiple bats makes for a rather unique BP photo for Sam Horn, and just so both Chicago ballparks get mentioned - that's certainly old Comiskey in the background of Fisk, with a photo worthy of modern Panini releases.
In contrast with the Sabo in the first group, that Thomas is a beautifully framed photo of an at-bat. And there's the first Jays appearance in the pack. Dion James works perfectly with the border and the tight cropping.
A Jays appearance and a HOFer. That's a perfectly fine grouping.
Mets content highlights the last batch of cards. A nice bunch of cards for my team PCs, and a couple interesting photos makes for a great group of cards, even if they're obnoxiously early 90s bright.
But there were stickers too! Logo stickers! A grand total of zero that are still in use in that format today. 

There you have it!


  1. I won't say that I love this set... but it's definitely grown on me over the years. Part of it has to do with the well-cropped photography on some of the cards.

  2. Always a good pack when Mackey Sasser makes an appearance. ;)

  3. I never bought packs of this and never liked it, yet I have the factory set.

  4. 30 cards and not one Dodger--D'OH!

  5. Wow, Chief Wahoo on the sticker there. I like the bright yellow. Better than the grey they had in 1989!

  6. Fleer stickers were always so dang cool. Would like to see Topps do something different like that for once.
