'92 Bowman is also loaded with great rookies including Carlos Delgado, Mariano Rivera, and Manny Ramirez
Here's one of my personal favorite rookies from this set:
|A dollar at the card show - well spent.|
And here's one of the great rookie cards of the modern era:
|Not mine - this one is still on my want list.|
Yikes. There are dozens upon dozens of cringe-worthy photos of the 90's making fashion victims of us all. I get to complain because my Mom was still dressing me when this card was made, so it was all her fault I probably looked like a spaz. Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
Let's see that Griffey:
This is one of those rare sets that only has one Griffey to get; but for those of us who cannot get enough '92 Bowman, there is another. In 2010 Bowman re-used this popular design for their Bowman Throwbacks insert:
Great card, amazing photograph. I love how you can't see his eyes. I'm thinking that if you could, the laserbeam of Griffey-focus would slice your skull in twain. Best to let that stay between a man and his ball.
This entire set is available at dacardworld.com for $125.00. For that you get all the great rookies including Piazza, Mariano Rivera, and Carlos Delgado as well as 2nd-year cards for Chipper and Pedro Martinez. But what is more than that, you get tons of pictures of dudes sincerely sporting Esprit turtlenecks, stonewashed Guess jeans, and Jordache bermuda shorts. Now that is priceless.
