Jim Abbott 1992 Upper Deck – Front & Back

Jim Abbott 1992 Upper Deck – Front & Back

In my opinion, Upper Deck is the company that took the back of a baseball card to another level.  Starting in 1989 by including color pictures on the backs of their cards, it made double-checking each card a mandatory thing when ripping packs.

And in some cases, the images used on the back of the card is better than the one on the front.

I believe that is the case with this card of Jim Abbott from the 1992 Upper Deck issue.

Tell me if you agree.

First, the front:

And now, the back:

Yes, the front of the card features a vibrant and very nice picture.  But the image on the back is all about action.  And it showcases the athleticism that Abbott brought to the mound on every fourth day.

So, how about it – Front OR Back???
