Nostalgic Box Break: 1998 Collector's Choice Series One (Part One)
Today, since it's been forever since I've done one of these, we're gonna look at Collector's Choice's last hurrah.
Yes, the penultimate Upper Deck Collector's Choice set, and the last time they could retain some of the gonzo, awesome concepts that made the set fun originally. You can see that CC's beginning to lose its way, as this is probably the most composed base set since the trial run in 1994. Plus, more kid-oriented concepts are beginning to come in, and even more inserts.
This is a changing brand, but it's still an awesome set. So, we have 36 packs, 12-per-pack. 12 packs today. Let's see how things were in 1998.
Think about that every time you see 'em win this year. Times have been worse.
I'll get around to Part 2 sometime this week, but this is a pretty cool set.
