What’s Buzz-worthy: This all-rookie brand is one that’s a bit of an oddball with short-printed base card variations and certain autos that can be pretty elusive, stock that can make these cards a bit condition sensitive but an autograph every single time. This retail-exclusive brand carried a suggested retail price of $19.99 a pack back in the day and it’s one that continues to challenge collectors taking on the battle of collecting ’em all. Don’t take my word for it now — take my word for it back in the day. (You can check out the checklist there, too, along with some crazy past sales from eBay.) If you have a player or two in here who you chase, this one’s worth a rip — and, if not, it’s worth it just for fun. With some luck, you could do pretty well.
