Completely Red: 1995 Score Summit

I find this 200 card set to be quite nice. The design is solid, the stock is good, and there's just the right amount of foil. The design for the rookie cards is kind of goofy, though, but the regular base cards more than make up for it. I think Score was dying around this time, even though they were throwing out a bunch of 'high-end' sets. Too many years of cheapness, I guess. That's too bad, because this set shows me they were capable of being good, but were too entrenched in the low-end market.

As far as the Reds in the set, we have 8 cards, including 3 non-RC rookies (Belk and Sullivan both had cards in 1994 and Mottola had cards in 1993). The Reds team wasn't exactly stacked around this time, so it's a pretty weak talent showing overall. To most, that is. Not me. I love everybody.
