Welcome to my latest installment of "Ripping for George Brett Submissions"
1992 Score Series II, $10 from www.bbcexchange.com
By 1992 Score was pretty we'll established in the baseball card world, but they were still a distant 5th to the
"Big Three" and Upper Deck. They sought to change that with their 1992 release. Series One featured exclusive (ON-CARD)
Autos of Joe DiMaggio. That not surprisingly was a big hit, so they had to try to top that with their second
series release. So sure enough, they did just that (imo) when they inked Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial and Carl
Yastrzemski to sign cards for their series two release. Not only did these three Legends sign cards individually,
they also produced a card that featured all three on the same card, absolutely unheard of in 1992. Score also
produced unsigned cards of the legends individually and as a triple.
Now of course the odds of pulling even the single signed cards are something that i cannot express how
difficult it was, nevermind the triple auto. There were no "odds" announced back then, and no, i was not
THAT fortunate to pull an auto.
about 9 packs in, i was happy to pull this:
i wound up getting three in the box, very nice!
Here are the "Hits":
Note: all of the cards above are base cards and part of the set.
Until Next Time,
