I had never seen these cards before, but when I was able to grab each one for a quarter a piece I jumped on the chance!!
As best I can tell, in 2001 Upper Deck put out a series of cards celebrating player achievements from yesteryear. This 3-card Andre Dawson set commemorates the following:
Card #1 – this is the base cad
Card #2 – this card celebrates Andre’s 1977 Rookie Of The Year award
Card #3 – this card celebrates the great rookies of the 1970’s as it’s tagged ‘1970’s Flashback’
Not too bad for just 75 cents…
