Completely Red: 1991 Reds Pepsi (Uncut Sheet)

I have no excuse at all for not having posted about this in the run of this blog. Here we have an uncut promotional sheet of a set Pepsi put out in 1991 to commemorate the Reds 1990 World Series title. My uncle was a trucker and at some point was hauling Pepsi products and some rep gave this to him, which was promptly given to my nine-year-old self. Then my pops had it framed. It's a solid decoration for the card cave.

The set is 20 airbrushed cards strong, and full of fan favorites from the greatest underdog story in the history of baseball. Ok, that might be over-the-top, but it's up there. We weren't even supposed to be relevant in 1990, much less gearing up to sweep the juggernaut A's. Anything commemorating the 1990 squad is welcome 'round here.
