A few months ago, I had found some Card Time for myself, and was sorting through a box of miscellaneous cards. I don't recall why, was I sorting them or just looking to see what was in there.
Here is one card I found:
COOOOOOOOOOOL !!!! How did I miss collecting this sub set?
It is the 1994 SP Holoview FX sub set.
The cards are highlighted with a 3D player hologram at the bottom of the card.
As you move the card, the hologram head moves and changes facial expressions.
There are 38 cards and were inserted 1:5 packs of 1994 SP Baseball.
Also comes as a Die Cut RED parallel version that was printed inserted 1:75 packs.
I'm only collecting the regular blue version of the sub-set.
The checklist includes Alex Rodriguez RC , Ripken, Griffey Jr, and Gwynn.
Micheal Jordan is also in the set, since he was in the midst of his attempt at baseball.
I than proceeded to search through other boxes to see if I had others. NONE !!
Since than I have acquired a few more cards, but still missing just under half of the set -- including the higher valued cards of Rodriguez, Ripken, and Jordan.
Here is a link to my NEED LIST for this set.
Here is a link to the complete checklist for the set.
This was a big error on my part during the collecting years of the mid 90's.
It is one of those - could have, should have, would have moments.
The collecting goes on.
Baseball Words of Thought....
Manger HUGH JENNINGS (Tigers mgr 1907 -1920) once said --- "If he's played that many games without an error, he isn't going after the hard ones. The fellow who never makes a mistake is the fellow who never does anything" -- after being told of a minor-league prospect had played 87 straight errorless games.
KEEP ON COLLECTING !!
