1994 Church's Chicken

This one is deserving of it's own blog entry. I don't know anything about it other than it has a 1994 Pinnacle copyright on the back. It really doesn't do for me much as an advertisement to eat more fried food though....

9 Cecil Fielder

1994 Pinnacle

These look like Stadium Club cards. That's not meant to be complimentary and should not be taken as such. 

The 1994 Pinnacle Detroit Tigers:
10 Cecil Fielder
67 Mickey Tettleton
96 John Doherty
125 Chad Kreuter
154 Mike Henneman
183 Travis Fryman
212 Mike Moore
234 Danny Bautista
281 Lou Whitaker
330 Tony Phillips
359 Milt Cuyler
388 Eric Davis
414 Chris Gomez
429 Alan Trammell
433 Matt Brunson
453 Kirk Gibson
464 David Wells
491 Tim Belcher

I'm not usually a big fan of parallels, but Pinnacle knocked it out of the park with these. Very cool. They should have just made these the base cards and called it a day.

I've got a couple of inserts, but nothing to blog home about.

Power Surge
14 Travis Fryman

The Run Creators
11 Tony Phillips

There was also a Cecil Fielder card that looks just like his base card, but with big block letter printed across the front and back that reads "SAMPLE" 

All righty then....

1994 Score

I needed something to do this afternoon since I'm not getting to see my alma mater (Memphis) play their second round game against Maryland. Fortunately, judging by the scoreboard I'm not missing much.

I don't really have much here. These are ok. I guess for Score that's high praise. My favorite card is easily the Team Checklist. There is next to nobody in the stadium, yet the upper deck center field bleachers are packed. I'll admit that's the first time I've ever seen that many people out there without a huge cloud of smoke hovering right above......

The 1994 Score Detroit Tigers:
11 Travis Fryman

There were some inserts too, including a parallel set that looked just like the regular set, but had gold foil borders. Hmmmm, I wonder where Topps stole that stupid idea from?

Boys Of Summer
51 Danny Bautista

5 Tony Phillips

Gold Stars
40 Cecil Fielder
48 Travis Fryman

There was an update set of sorts that looks nothing like the base set.  These may rank among the worst cards I have ever seen. 

Rookie & Traded
44RT Junior Felix
84RT Danny Bautista
95RT Chris Gomez
158RT Jose Lima

Memphis wins by 19. Yay!
