Completely Red: 1994 SP Base and Die-Cut

I guess these were considered high-end at the time, right? Foil meant a premium product back in the throes of the junk era and these babies were caked in foily goodness. I don't recall owning any to speak of as a kid, but they certainly do not look premium anymore.

UD threw in a die-cut parallel, as Topps had shown that parallels were going to be the future of the hobby with their fancy golds. Die-cutting was in its infancy, so the foil + die-cut was surely largely appealing for many. They were one-per-pack, so acquiring them wasn't terribly difficult. Of the 200 cards in the set, my boys got a mere six, with none from the rookie prospect subset. The six included, though, are all fan favorites, so it's a nice little collection.


Cards - 6

RC's - 0

All Stars - 4 (Boone, Larkin, Mitchell, R. Sanders)

Hall of Famers - 1 (Larkin)

Reds Hall of Famers - 2 (Rijo, Larkin)


158 Bret Boone
159 Barry Larkin
160 Kevin Mitchell
161 Jose Rijo
162 Deion Sanders
163 Reggie Sanders

Go Reds.
