Never heard of that before....

Always nice to see a completely new set...


First baseball card I have ever seen from 1998 Circa Thunder. A bit typical of the later 90s - a lot going on and plenty of colour. Other than that, closing in on the complete 1991-92 O Pee Chee insert set of Sharks and Russians - less than 10 to go.

The rest

Glad to see more of the Mini Jersey set from 2007-08 - the true base set is small enough, I hope I do complete this one!


Speaking of new sets - the Future Stars In The Game card is nice - except it was heavily creased right across the card so will not be staying in my collection unfortunately.

  1. That design was used for 1997-98 Z-Force in the NBA. I got one of them in an NBA repack once. I suspect whoever was sorting them was familiar with the NBA set but not the baseball one and didn't look closely and put it in the wrong stack.

    1. I always find it funny trying to figure out how that happens - I got an early 90s Pinnacle Mask card in a baseball repack at the dollar store once. I gather the person quickly looking through thought it must have been a catcher mask...
