I recently busted a box of Panini’s new Team USA set.
I am an American so I like a nice Team USA set. This set is a little different than some of the sets released by other companies in the last few years in that it is packs and not a complete set and that it includes the collegiate and high school teams and the WBBC team. So vets AND prospects.
A few of the cards really caught my eye in that it brought back some fond memories.
When is the last time you saw a Wally Joyner card!? It had to be the ’90s. For those of you under 30 you don’t remember when he was a semi big name in the hobby. This card makes me incredibly happy.
He was the IT rookie for a spell. I hadn’t thought about him in over 20 years when I opened his card here. I think he was #1 overall. He never became a star but did retire with a winning record.
I loved Will as a kid, easily one of my top 5 players. I even had one of those caricature t-shirts of the man.
I like the blue and the die-cutting.
Will is one of those guys that never looked young.
I have a ton more of these cards to post but wanted to drop these in their own post because I love them so.
