The back is at an angle so you can read it while going around a turn.

This is a sharp card all around. I think the front pops more than most cards I have seen. I also like the angled back because it gives it some flare in my opinion rather than it just being basic and straight.

Eventful 1991 for Rusty. All those 0s. Did he race for another series or what? (Also I don't know racing.)

I love those Detroit Tigers. I'm not former Tiger shortstop prospect John Gamble.

I like the action shot with the crowd behind from victory lane.As for the back clearly it is turning left.

Yes. Wallace was a well-established NASCAR Winston Cup driver by this time - the highest level of professional stock car racing. The ASA series (American Speed Association) was a national touring organization, a lower-tier (though still very competitive and eventful) series, and Wallace won the championship in 1983. I don't know how many ASA races he was running in this time frame (obviously none in 1991), and this set seems to be of the commemorative and historical type, so I assume that's why he was included.

I'll never quit collecting entirely, but I am downsizing. Check out my COMC store and help me thin out what I don't want so I can buy cards that I do want.

I also usually have one or two cards up for auction on eBay. Usually auctions end on Friday evenings, and the next round goes up for 7 days right around the same time.

I watched ASA at the Minnesota State Fair Speedway. Had pit access before the races one year. Great for photo taking. Speedway has been gone for many years. sad

I never had the chance to get into ASA, but I did enjoy watching Rusty race. He was never my favorite driver but being a Missouri guy I was never upset if he won.  I once had a boss who was a big NASCAR fan and Rusty was his favorite driver.
