1994 Triple Play

Another year of Triple Play, another nicely done set. It's funny that I didn't care much for these cheap issues back when, but now I would love to see a cheap set like this that was given its own great looking design instead of the refurbished look of Topps Opening Day and Upper Deck First Edition year after year.

The gigantic player name, use of the team logo, and prominent use of team colors all score high marks from me. That's also a cool masking effect with the player name. As someone who has spent a career in desktop publishing/printing, it's fun to notice something like that being done for the first time. But as I've noticed, Triple Play was always about fun.
