This time I went with a box of 1995 Upper Deck Minors. I have seen cards from this set floating around, but these are the first I've had in hand before. The front is just like the regular major league issue from 1995, with a nice swooping line separating player and team name / position.
These glossy, full-bleed photo cards seem to have avoided the fate of many Topps Stadium Club issues and did not clump in a sticky, paper tearing, surface flaking mess.
Each pack had a parallel "Future Stock" card (sort of like electric diamond parallels - just a little extra foil):
The subsets within included:
my favorite card back of the cards I pulled:
and some wonderful, terrific names:
I liked these quite a bit - there were doubles and triples of some cards. If you have a team you collect and want to add some 95 UD Minors cards to your collection, let me know! I want to keep Jordan, Jeter, and some of the other minor stars, but there should be something fun for every team.
