As a ten-year-old kid in the '90's, this was my favorite set I had. It was the first set that I ever felt was "premium", above all the 88-92 Donruss, Fleer, Score, & Topps that I was collecting. The glossy cards without borders, the (at the time) sharp, bright picture, the team-colored marble corner, really made these stand out in my collection. I thought the city backgrounds were great. In the time before internet was readily available, this was a glimpse into the city skylines of new cities. The only gripe would be the lack of career stats, but I think the tradeoff was worth it for an excellent card design. Being a huge Frank Thomas fan, I loved the inserts too.

As I'm travelling the US with my family, each time I notice the skylines that I stared at for so many hours as a kid, I remember the times of opening these packs of cards with my dad and brother. A few years ago in Dallas, we went to the Reunion Tower, and my first thought when we got our picture taken in the backdrop was: Nolan Ryan has the same image on the back of his baseball card.

I really love the design of this set and actually like the backs even more. Unfortunately the photography is underwhelming with repetitive, generic poses. Also, the inserts aren't that great and they pretty much missed on the entire Gold Rookie set (except Chipper).

I just broke a box of Series 2 today which was fun even though some gloss sticking happened. The truly frustratingly thing is, despite 505 cards in the box and only 220 cards in the series, I came up 26 cards short of completing the series. But I got 8 Mike Felders.

This set is probably only second to 1995 Upper Deck among my favorite baseball sets of the 1990s. I really LOVE the city skylines on the backs.
