Below is a card issued in 1992 by Topps for McDonald’s. Like many other national retailers, McD’s tried to jump on the bandwagon of baseball card collecting and use this set as a tool to keep kids coming to their restaurants. Did it work? I have no clue. But the cards look great…
Topps really did a nice job with the design of this card. We have seen many times when cards with Black borders do not hold up, like the 1971 Topps set. But that is not the case with this 1992 issue. The dark border allows for the other colors used in the design to really pop. And the Yellow which I assume was used to represent the same color as McDonald’s famous arches creates a nice border around a large picture.
With this Andre Dawson card, the full body action shot of Andre as he prepares to take a mighty swing looks great. The Gold accents add a little brightness to the card but also make the text hard to read.
Another great, new addition to my Andre Dawson player collection!!!
