Completely Red: 1992 Stadium Club Dome

A 1991 copyright line, a 1991 Stadium Club design, yet released in 1992 one month after the 1992 Stadium Club base set. Because why not? Also known as the 1991 Special Stadium Set, this set was 200 cards deep and sold in a facsimile SkyDome, the site of the 1991 All Star Game. 100 draft picks, 56 All Stars, 25 Team USA members, and 19 highlight cards and, found among them, are 3 Reds draft picks and 5 Reds All Stars. 

Of the draft picks, Joe DeBerry spent 7 years in the minors without making it to The Show, Mike Harrison spent 4 years in the minors without making it to The Show, and Calvin "Pokey" Reese enjoyed an 8 year major league career, 5 with Cincy. So perhaps for DeBerry and Harrison, a nice, shiny Stadium Club release was the highlight of their careers.

STATS:

Cards - 8

RC's - 3 (Joe DeBerry, Mike Harrison, Calvin Reese)

All Stars - 5 (Tom Browning, Rob Dibble, Barry Larkin, Paul O'Neill, Chris Sabo)

  2. Any extras of the Larkin card? I don't think I have that one...
