I know there are collectors who find yellow borders a little obnoxious and over the top. However, I feel like there's enough stuff going on with this design to keep people from focusing on them. I've always felt that the 1991 Fleer baseball card design could have used a team logo to spice things up. 1991 Kenner SLU cards took care of that issue. They also utilized one of 1991 Fleer's strengths by carefully choosing solid action shots for the player's main photo. And if that weren't enough, they also took a page out of Topps' book and added a portrait shot to their design.
When it comes to the back of the cards, Kenner can't compete with Fleer...
That's why I decided to use my 1991 Kenner SLU #NNO Nolan Ryan card as my Day 27 submission into Tony's 30 Day Baseball Card Challenge which asks us to share a favorite oddball card from 1990 or later.
What about you?
What are your thoughts on these yellow bordered baseball cards? Do you have a favorite oddball issue from the 90's?
Look forward to reading your feedback and I hope everyone is enjoying their week.
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
