Completely Red - 1991 Score

Ok, 1991 Score screams '90's Junk Era', but I don't care. I had tons of it. It was cheap, it had a huge checklist, it was cheap, it had tons of subsets, it was cheap, and it was cheap. It was my first complete factory set and I also had a hand-made set. A huge 893-card base set combined with a 110-card Traded set adds up to over 1,000 card of junkie goodness. Of these, we have a massive 41-card Reds selection, 24 of which feature an All Star, including 5 each of Barry Larkin and Eric Davis. How can you not love this set?

Design-wise, the base cards are very simple. Bright, solid color scheme with a very 90's template. In classic score fashion, the main color for each card changed throughout the set. Most were blue with green. My favorite are the black with red. The Dream Team subset is a collector favorite, with some infamous and dubious photography (Rickey Henderson and Jose Canseco, anyone?). The first big-heads of the brand appeared this year, three of which were Reds. The Master Blaster/K-Man/Rifleman subset, with the radical Power Point effects are sweet. I will never not love this set.
