Completely Red: 1993 Donruss

This is one of my favorite sets, only due to memories of early collecting. It's not terribly exciting. Nameplate, team logo, white border. Seen it before. Will see it again. But I had a ton of this set as a kid, for whatever reason. I remember actually having hobby boxes of this stuff. And I built the complete set by hand, which was huge.

You'll notice we have 100% in-game action shots. Say what you want about the over-production era, but dangit, they actually did give a crap. These companies were straight moving product, son. The Joe Oliver is particularly great. And check out the rare double amputation on Dibble. Sweet.
