Oh Ricky, You're So Fine

 The fact that sets like these were made just blows my mind - her Ricky!

So in 1999, Ricky Martin was a big deal in music. With The Cup of Life being the song/anthem of the World Cup in 1998, hits like Livin' La Vida Loca, She's All I Ever Had in 1999, She Bangs and Shake Your Bon-Bon in 2000 - he was at the heights of his music career.

So what do you do? Make sure to pump out as much merch as possible, including a 90 card set which had a number of inserts too, in 1999.

I have no idea how many cards are in a pack, but with 7 cards here, I am guessing this may be the contents of one such pack.

Well, at least they aren't Beiber cards.

So those aren't staying, but the next are nice...

Neither are new, but really like seeing the McD cards. These are checklist inserts from 2000-01, which I do have the completed checklist set for, and am only missing 6 of the 30 base cards, but still always enjoy seeing them.

As for the rest for today...

No surprise the 1999-2000 MVO set looks just like the Euro set we saw a good while ago in this lot.

I don't need them, but more McD cards are nice...maybe I can find the few missing base cards in this lot.

We end with some Upper Deck football...

If nothing else, this post will have me remembering some old Ricky Martin lyrics for the rest of the day....shake your bon-bon...not as crass as some others we have seen yourself!


  1. Her lips are cherry red
    Her skin the color mocha
    She will wear you out
    Livin' la vida loca

    1. That's the first one that comes to mind for me too.

  2. I vaguely remember the Topps Menudo set from the early 80's, but don't recall ever seeing this 90's set.

  3. Did someone say Bieber? I wouldn't mind those Ricky Martin cards at all.
    Trade you a Darryl Sittler Jersey card for em'

    1. Oh Bieber - reminds me of seeing the card set they did for him a few years back. As for the Ricky cards, not sure anyone will fight you for them - lol.
