Cal Ripken Jr. 1991 Upper Deck
The 1991 Upper Deck design still offered quite a bit of similarity to the 1989 and 1990 products that preceded it.
But, I am not complaining! The 1989 Upper Deck set is a classic with a timeless design.
And the 1991 version, looks just as good.
Here is further evidence – the Cal Ripken, Jr. card:
I told you – it is a beauty!!
In today’s collecting world, this would not work as collectors demand innovation and new designs from card companies with each and every new release.
I wonder how this went over back in 1991 when collectors first discovered that the 1991 set design was just a tad different from the previous 1989 and 1990 releases…
