I don’t use the word love very often. I love my wife, I love my kids, I love Waffle House sausage egg and cheese wraps, and I love this card.
I was thinking about this the other night and feel confident saying it is my favorite football card all time.
’89 Pro Set is a monster set and my favorite football release. I love the design and have fond memories of busting boxes with my dad and brother back in the day. I remember one winter night we dropped my mother and sister off at the Ordway in Saint Paul for a concert and we hit Shinders and picked up a box. From my 3rd of the box I pulled 2 Sanders, including the one up top. At one point I had a full 9 pocket sheet of these guys.
Sanders was a monster on the field and even bigger in the hobby.
I have cards worth far more but this is hands down my favorite football card.
