My second recent purchase which shows Justice in the infield. While the front of these cards are pretty sweet, the backs are rather plain- featuring no stats and no photos, only a red back with black and white lettering. It does announce Justice as the NL Rookie of the Year. This plain back is what makes it a great odd ball!
I liked the '93 Stadium Club Team sets, but the ninety-four's are just plain horrible.
Houston was chosen second overall in the 1989 amateur draft. At the time, the pick was a no-brainer. Looking back in hindsight, how good would Frank Thomas have looked sporting a Braves uni? The big hurt was taken 7th overall. Heck, even Chuck Knoblauch, taken 25th, would have been a better pick. I included this player in the challenge as a reminder of those super prospects who don't live up to the hype.
