Pulled out of storage: 1994 Stadium Club

1994 Stadium Club Erik PappasI wish I could’ve been there the first time Erik Pappas saw this card.  “WHAT THE–????  Are you freakin’ kidding me?!?!”  Yep, there’s no better way to be immortalized on cardboard than to be pictured sitting in the dugout eating cantaloupe out of a bowl.

Looking back on this set, it’s kind of an interesting design.  The primary design elements are scraps of typewritten paper and DYMO tape… and on the Golden Rainbow parallel, it’s shiny gold DYMO tape!  Yay!

I can’t think of much else to say about this set.  It’s your typical high-end-for-the-mid-90’s set, full bleed, foil-stamped, nicer photography than usual, but often fairly standard shots.  To be fair, these comments are based on the cards I’m looking at right now, I might not have a representative sample.

Nothing in these cards to make me want to keep them… no,  not even the awesome Pappas card.

Moved into the “outbox”:  95 base cards, 17 Golden Rainbow parallels.

Moved into the COMC-bound box:  1 Golden Rainbow John Smoltz

NOTE:  These cards are reflected in the posted-immediately-before-this Weigh-In #3.
