Are you thirsty? Part 1
I picked this up along with a bunch of other cards you've seen and will be seeing on this blog. Your favorite watered down chocolate drink released card sets in 1993 and 1994 (pictured). All the players in the sets are retired, and most are in the hall of fame. Obviously, the logos are airbrushed off, leaving for plenty of blank grey space. This set was issued along with Rawlings, and all the 1994 players are Gold Glove winners. The 1993 set was just named "Baseball Legends" and contains Pete Rose. An interesting addition to the 1994 set were randomly inserted autographs of Carl Yastrzemski. Both sets are pretty inexpensive, and the Yaz auto is valued around $30.
Yoo-Hoo is the only card set that starts with the letter Y.
