We are up to scans 31-40. Thus far the 1996 cards especially those first 20 scans were some of the most creative and not so much overdone in terms of too much that we have seen. Rest assured though by the time we make our way through to 2014 there will be many more contenders. Why is that important. I think that I will hold a contest. being that this run of posts is going to take quite awhile to get through, anyone following and on the very last post which will be stated as the last one of this long running series, I will ask which card do you think was the best overall? (leave in the comments, once a card is picked it is off the market so to speak) I will then decide who I agree with and they will get a surprise package of Elway cards from me. Just to make it a bit exciting, if I still have double of the card picked I will be putting it in there too! Enough of that tease for now as we are no wheres close to the end game. So let's look at some cards.
A very much football like card. Good job Score!
That Prime Cut is super awesome.
Great parallels! Select certified was totally on their A game in 1996.
I put a sticky on the top right card as it is different from one in my doubles box. I have to see if I still have that one to figure out what the differences are. Fingers crossed.
I like the upper right, and of course if yopu have to have a "Ruby" parallel.
The top card comes real close to too much, but stays just short of it. The other two die cuts are cool, especially the gold, lol. SP and SPx are high end for a reason.
They use premium card stock, photography is usually spot on, and design is pretty much great. They do tend to use too many holo-graphics.
Many are Stadium club fans, I for one am not. They were back in the day Topps' high end set. I will say that TSC definitely had some good photography especially action shots.
Look we made it to Topps, lol. That is a wrap for today. There is one last post for the 1996 card run.
