I'm not really sure why I even purchased this. I guess because I didn't have any 1991 Bowman and it was only 50 cents. That's a pretty weak reason.
14 cards plus 1 nasty 20-year-old stick of gum, which I didn't dare eat.
Definitely my favorite card in the pack. The first 5 cards in the set are all Carew, a small subset commemorating his induction into the Hall-of-Fame in '91. Rod was elected his very first time on the ballot.
1991 was Winfield's only full season with the Angels, and he turned in a pretty solid campaign, clubbing 28 home runs and 86 RBI.
From what I found online I believe this is an uncorrected error. Griffey Jr. is actually card 246 in the set, and his father is supposed to be card #255, although the back indicates number 246.
Look how ripped Jose is in this photo. How were we all so naive?
Alomar was the lone damaged card in the pack, as the left edge was ripped along the back of the card. I'm not ashamed to admit that I threw it in the garbage...
All in all these aren't bad looking cards, and I made out pretty well with this pack. Still, I find myself asking why I bothered with this one.
