The 1994 SP Baseball Holoviews are a prime example. If you've never seen them, they're absolutely stunning (in my humble opinion) and pretty affordable. I'll pick up singles whenever I see them in bargain bins at card shows. But recently I dug deep into my wallet and grabbed a card I've wanted for several years:
1994 SP Holoview Blue #33
I've never been a huge Alex Rodriguez fan. However the guy was one of the best hitters of his generation (yeah... I know he used PED's)... and the combination of beauty and nostalgia kept this card on my radar over the years.
It wasn't cheap. I'm pretty sure it's the most I've ever spent on a card that wasn't a vintage hall of famer, a graded rookie card, or a high-end autograph. I'm not really sure what even possessed me to bid as much as I did. But that's okay. I love this card and it's officially crossed off my wantlist.
Okay... it's your turn:
What are some of your favorite 90's insert sets?
By the way... today marks the 25th anniversary of A-Rod's MLB debut. Who doesn't love a little baseball trivia every now and then.
Have a great week! Happy Monday and sayonara!
