Heavy Metal

 Well...these are ugly...

So this bugly set is 1995-96 Fleer Metal. Not much to say about it, but the rusty colouring of the fans, and harshness of the cards are not a great look in my opinion. Luckily they are not cards that will stay around with me long - basketball and all, but still...yikes.

This is a little more up my alley...

1997 Upper Deck baseball. A couple nice looking subsets, but not a set I am collecting at this point, and no Jays, still, a decent set...hope we get to see more.

Another bunch of 1999-2000 Upper Deck Swedish League cards which brings us up to somewhere around 150 cards of the 220 card set...may have to look at how much is left if I get another bunch.

We then end with...

1994-95 Collector's CHoice German version. I have to say, I didn't really like Charles as a player, but really enjoy him on the mic these days as he does have a great personality. Love the emotion of the pose at least.


  1. I love the Metal set! I'm pretty close to completing it. Not just the first year but all 5 years it was produced in the NBA. I've already completed 1996-97, 1998-99 and 1999-00.

    1. My dislike for the set is the scanning aspect. It's okay in hand - not one I love, but it is different.

  2. I opened a lot of mid 90's Metal... and enjoy that set. There were some pretty cool inserts sets from that product too.

  3. Smoltz wins the round.

    I'm with you on the Metal cards.

  4. I was always fascinated with the Metal set. I think it started with Marvel cards and then all of a sudden it was being used with sports.
