1992 Topps Stadium Club Series 3

Here's a junk wax staple that won't leave you with actual wax stains or filthy old gum. In 1991, Topps debuted their Stadium Club line and took a bit of step back the following year by overproducing the hell out of it. Like anything made in 1992, you had better just try and enjoy it for what it is instead of an investment opportunity. This Series 3 pack came in the big box o' giveaway junk wax.

826 - Steve Foster

633 - Jeff McKnight

898 - Checklist 601-700 (This is a really unsightly checklist.)

855 - Bill Swift (Swift is doing his best to look perpendicular here.)

704 - Rene Gonzales (Hey, an action shot! Is this Rene like "Renee" or Rene like "Reen"?)

848 - Mike Witt

834 - Jeff Parrett (And back to the posed photos.)

785 - Frank Viola

745 - Dave Winfield (Dave is thinking... oh man, what have I reduced myself to? Bubble gum cards?)

795 - Eddie Murray (Nice shot, but where's the ball?)

858 - Hector Villanueva

805 - Randy Myers

621 - Turner Ward

792 - Scott Fletcher

710 - Wally Joyner (Wally World rounds out the bunch.)

I don't know if you could lump 1992 Stadium Club into the junk wax era. Its production run was probably about the same as 1992 Bowman which was one of the most popular releases of the 1990's (and isn't considered junk wax either).

The main reason why 92 Stadium Club isn't that popular is because Topps chose to focus on photgraphy and omitted all the key rookie cards (Manny Ramirez, Mike Piazza, Nomar Garciaparra, Mariano Rivera, Carlos Delgado) that were available in other 1992 Topps products.
