My answers by the sports asked;
Baseball- Upper Deck Authentics for the simple reason is that I loved the 16" x 20" framed pieces.
Football- Fleer Authetix because while I think the product itself missed at the time, I think incorporating tickets into cards, when properly themed and designed is a still relatively unexplored area of product content.
Basketball- Topps Tall Boys circa 1970. I think the oversized cards would be able to do wonders for the modern day sports photography of this sport today.
So while I lost to a guy who honestly thought that one of my most hated card designs of all time should be brought back (1987 Topps "woodies") I was very pleased with the package that arrived for me yesterday. In addition to some Chicago teams base cards, Gridiron Giveaway code cards, and a Gridiron Giveaway Rookie Redemption, the guys sent me these three "hits".
