|McGRIFF WAS A BIG STAR OF THE '90s.|
|SCORE COULD DESIGN SOME GREAT BACKS.|
WHY I LIKE IT
- Lots of color, even though the background is quite busy and comes close to eating Fred McGriff, The Crime Dog. The All-Star Game logo is nice, too. Overall, Score did a great job with its baseball sets and is missed.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
- This 18-card set featured players from the '92 All-Star Game in San Diego and was available late in the '92 season.
HOW I ACQUIRED IT
- The set was available by mailing UPC symbols from three Proctor & Gamble products and a coupon that was in the newspaper.
- I stayed busy obtaining a lot of these kinds of sets back then. The fact it had McGriff, a Tampa guy from Jefferson High School, and Cal Ripken Jr. (5/18) made it extremely enticing.
