About this set: So, much like Uncle Rico, when I hop in the time machine back to 1993, I will be king. I remember going to card shows where if there was even one of these things around it was a big deal. What a great set and concept. The star, 40 HR (David Justice, Jeff Bagwell, Matt Williams, Gary Sheffield, Rafeal Palmeiro, Andre Dawson, Larry Walker, Jose Canseco, Frank Thomas, Ryne Sandberg, Juan Gonzalez, Jay Buhner, Andres Galaragga, Ken Caminiti, Mo Vaughn, George Bell, and Mike Piazza), 50 HR (Albert Belle, Brady Anderson, Cecil Fielder, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Luis Gonzalez), 60 HR (Sammy Sosa), 70 HR (Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire)and HOF (Rickey Henderson, Ozzie Smith, George Brett, Paul Molitor, Tony Gwynn, Wade Boggs, Cal Ripken, Dennis Eckersley, Ryne Sandberg, Nolan Ryan, Eddie Murray, Carlton Fisk, Dave Winfield, Robin Yount, Andre Dawson, Roberto Alomar and Barry Larkin) list for this set is off the chart. Special thanks to Josh Ball and John Stevens for helping me get this set together through both sale and trade. Glad to answer emails about the set or trade offers.
