This is a set I really, really want to like. But after a couple great releases and the loss of some licensing, I can't get into this. Don't get me wrong - I think, subject wise, UD does a great job choosing who appears. It's just a dreadful design and painful to look at. I like that is it printed on old chipboard stock - that is a plus. The images are creepy, though.
On the rare chance you get a subject that you cannot see their face, the card is nice. The framing around the person is a little too heavy. The scan may not be showing all the scroll detail in the border, also.
See. Kind of juuuuuuuuuuust missing the look of the person. At least there is no foil on these cards anywhere.
Here's the licensing issue in play. I guess that makes for unique cards with players not in their sport. One thing I do like - the fact that the subject is busting out of the center frame at the top. That's cool.
I am not sure the different color border on this card. Johnny
One mini every other pack. This is a canvas mini, limited to 99. Now these I like. I think it's the tactile feel that makes them enjoyable. I like all the sets like this though - Masterpieces and even 95-96 Fleer baseball. Before you ask - yes, it is that off center. That is not my scanner.
You get no stats on Goodwin - that's neat. I think retro sets should avoid the stat tables and have the backs feel more higher end.
