Completely Red: 1991 Score 100 Superstars/100 Rising Stars

The 100 Superstars and 100 Rising Stars were released as complete sets in 1991. Each could be purchased with a special binder with brief bios on each player. The design seems a bit dated for '91. It's very similar to many of Fleers extracurricular releases of the 80's. Very boxy. Heavy on the bold, crayola 8-pack colors. Despite my towering stacks of 1991 cards from my youth, I had never seen these until a Sportlots package from a year ago, or so.

My Reds grabbed more than their share of Superstars, with six, but only managed two Rising Stars. Coming off the World Series win/MVP, I'm surprised Jose Rijo didn't make the cut.


Cards: 8

RC's - 0

All Stars - 6 (Larkin, Sabo, Davis, Browning, Myers, Armstrong)

Hall of Famers - 1 (Larkin)

Reds Hall of Famers - 4 (Davis, Browning, Larkin, Sabo)


-100 Superstars-
9 Eric Davis
20 Barry Larkin
28 Chris Sabo
32 Tom Browning
79 Randy Myers
83 Jack Armstrong

-100 Rising Stars-
54 Tim Layana
98 Hal Morris

Go Reds.
