Put these characteristics together and you get a cheap & cool card of one of the greatest and most popular players in the game. I've said it before... and I'll say it again. Overproduction of cardboard in the 90's is not necessarily a bad thing. Beckett lists this poster at just $1.25. Which means you can probably find one for less than 50¢.

Happy Monday and sayonara!
