The Colorado Silver Bullets were, to the general public, most likely nothing more than a novelty act running from 1994-1997. But the team featured some of the best women in US baseball, many who were top college softball stars. It wasn't until 1997 that they posted a winning record, but that may be due to playing lower-level semi-pro style teams instead of minor league teams.
Winning isn't really important, though, and I would have loved to have seen a game. A couple websites and promotional materials are all that really remain, along with the memories, and some video of course. The Silver Bullets have several team sets though, and the first one to show is this 1994 set.
I'm guessing it's 1994, actually, due to the text on the back and the other sets I now have. Speaking of the backs, these have blue ink backs that are relatively normal. The top half has biographical statistics like birthdates, with a paragraphical bio below. This text references the inaugural season, which tells me that it was issued late in the season, or at the end of the season.
Phil Niekro managed the team all four years, and as such is found in every Silver Bullets set issued over the four year span. I'm aware of six sets in all.
The complete set (as far as I know) is shown below, with 25 cards:
NPB Card Guy, who again surprised me with a package containing this and four other Silver Bullets sets. We had talked about them, but I didn't realize he was going to actually mail them! Thusly, this weekend is devoted to the Silver Bullets! Check back tomorrow for more!
