1999 Skybox Thunder Florida Marlins Team Set
The hobby in the 1990′s brought us a lot of competition. Competition for market share and definitely competition for ‘the best looking baseball cards’.
I left the hobby in the late 1990′s – burnt out on all of the new stuff and not happy to fork over dollars for a pack when dollars used to buy lots of wax.
Now back into the hobby, but still not fully immersed in all that I missed, I am very excited to find new and unique cards.
I recently picked up this Marlins team set from the 1999 Skybox Thunder set. And I have to say that prior to making my purchase, I never knew that these even existed.
Here is the set:
Kind of a unique design, and certainly bold by my standards. I like the set.
It’s just too bad that it does not remind me at all of the team that won the World Series two seasons prior. But you cannot blame Skybox for that…
