Traded Set Showcase: 1991 Upper Deck Final Edition
This is the first in a new series, one I'm certainly willing to keep going for a while, as I've come into contact with quite a few overproduction-era traded sets lately. Today, I wanted to take a closer look at one of them, because you don't get to see a ton of publicity from them, especially compared to flagship sets.
This set, 1991 Upper Deck Final Edition, is different from 1991 Upper Deck High Series, which acted as a true Update set, with traded players and everything. This one was released later in the year, and had a more impressive lineup of rookies, All-Stars and traded guys. As I don't have High Series, I'm not 100% sure the difference.
Still, this is an impressive set, with a lot of great photos and great effort put in.
We'll start the Showcase with card #1...
Now, the real impressive rookies don't come in until card #2...
So, those were the highlights of that insert set- a cool, quick little foray into the last quarter of the 1991 season. A lot of good stuff in here, and a few really nice rookies. I'm glad I looked at it.
