The 1991 Classic Best set was my first real exposure to minor league cards, other than some team sets. I don’t believe it was the first nationally released-in-pack set, but it was among the first. Who else remembers opening these bad boys thinking they were a gold mine?
If you shop online and haven’t signed up and used ebates yet, you’re missing out on FREE MONEY. I also use it on eBay to get money back from purchases there. Between referrals and cash back, I’ve gotten over $300 since I joined in October 2016 between purchases and referrals. FREE CARDS!
I remember busting open packs of this stuff when I worked at my LCS. It was cool finding cards of our beloved San Jose Giants and of course looking for the Ivan Rodriguez card.
I’m sure that had to be fun. During the 1990s Minor League baseball boom, I always wondered why and hated that my hometown didn’t have a minor league team. That would have been SO fun. Morgantown finally got a team, after I moved away.
