1995 Collector's Choice, or the Collector's Choice brand on the whole, is a prime example of how awesome 90's products were. Keep in mind, this brand was partially geared towards kids, which is an area Topps had a lot of problems, and still does have problems, relating to. The reason CC succeeds, is that not only does this set work as a kid-centric, but it works as a collectable, fun, rippable set. I enjoyed ripping this box, and I enjoyed the degree of photography. Plus, since it's Upper Deck, there are awesome photos on the front AND back.
Unlike the last few breaks, I'm not going to post every card from every pack. I'll be focusing on inserts, star cards, cards that would have been important in 1995, and really awesome photography.
So what are we waiting for? Let's begin.
However, I heard, before I ripped this box, that there was one particular card that I should be looking for. A card so cool, so pricey, and so monumental that I would know it when I'd see it.
My gosh. A card so...epic, so grand, that it totally erases the fact that Michael Jordan was a sucky baseball player. Jeez, that may be one of the greatest shots I've seen in a while, especially out of Collector's Choice. I mean...WOW.
I mean, can this box get any better?
Baseball Reference.com, McGriff did not hit a homer that day, though the Braves won.
I will continue the break throughout the week, as this is such a fun set.
