1992 Donruss ~The Elite Series~ (#34 of 36)

Something from the "high-end" of my collection. Serial-numbered to 10,000 (!), these gems were some of the most sought after cards of the junk wax era. When cards have print runs of 300,000, it puts being #'d/10,000 in perspective...

Dick Perez not only painted, he also (apparently) worked in holo-foil.

1992 Fleer League Leaders #692

Remember when baseball card sets were like 700+ cards? I do...

Photobucket

The '92 Fleer set was 732 cards deep, not including the inserts (such as the "Rookie Sensations"). You can get a box on the 'Bay for around $15 bucks ($5 BIN + $10 shipping) or a complete, factory sealed set for around $20 shipped. Cards of value for that particular year were found in the "Updates" set (which featured Tim Wakefield's rookie card!!!!).

1991 Studio #53

Just got done watching Fab Five on ESPN. Tough to watch at times, but the truth hurts, and pain builds character. Pretty much the awesomest 2 hours of televsion I've watched in months. So let's take it back to '91...

Love the cheesy black and white, yearbook-style photo. Hate the teenie-tiny black and white Tigers' logo in the bottom left-hand corner ~~takes out magnifying glass~~...

Though I'm a Chip and bleed maroon 'n gold, I grew up watching and loving Michigan basketball... and tomorrow I'm wearing black socks to work.
