1995 Skybox Emotion Florida Marlins Team Set
When I hear the brand name Skybox, my head takes me to basketball cards. After all, Skybox was producing hoops cards before they were making baseball cards.
And in my opinion, that is a good thing!
Let them get the kinks worked out before shifting to another sport. Let them figure it out and then bring it to America’s Past-Time!!
In 1995 Skybox created a set called ‘Emotion’.
The set featured a border-less design and great, sharp photography.
This is the Florida Marlins team set from that issue:
I like the cards and I love all of the Teal that is represented.
If I could nit-pick for a minute, I would say that there are two issues with the set that stand out to me, and they make this set go from an ‘B+’ grade to a ‘C’ grade rather quickly.
1 – I like a set to maintain an either all vertical or all horizontal design. When layed out in a 9-count sheet like this, my eyes go crazy as I jump from one to the next – there is no continuity within the order.
2 – The 1-word phrases on each card are a bit odd – Stretching, Thinking, Calm, and my least favorite – Crack!!! Very, very odd…
