30 Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 13


30 DAY BASEBALL CARD CHALLENGE
DAY 13
One of your favorite cards from the 1990s



I know the 90's in terms of baseball cards are widely considered the era of junk wax, but man I loved the cards back then. Granted I was knew to the hobby and I didn't care, it was cards like this 1993 Upper Deck of Steve Avery, Greg Maddux, John Smoltz and Tom Glavine that made me love baseball cards. 

While I still love cards today, I miss some of the gimmicks and things the companies did with their cards in the 1990s. I often wonder if we'll ever see a return to this time in cards. Lets face it though, I ain't holding my breath!

  1. When it comes to our hobby... the 90's are one of my favorite eras. Unfortunately, I think it's more likely that Trump becomes the most popular President in US History than the card community returning to the peak of the Junk Wax Era.

  3. I echo Kin's thoughts on Avery. Really a shame he developed arm problems. Like Fuji, I, too, really liked the 90s. And the 80s. And the mid-late 70s for collecting. Heck, I even like the '10s. Only era during my life I didn't enjoy was the '00s.
