This is where the last two cards in the pack should be but it appears we have been shorted 2 cards in this pack. Bummer!

Some of the backs.

Total Cards:
8 6 (2 cards missing)
Teams Represented: 8
Rookie Cards:
Sub Sets:
1 (4-in 1)
1 (mini blue back)
 1 (20th Anniversary Retrospective) 
Keepers for Me:
 1 (Schmidt)

Front Design: 7 out of 10 Good artwork, decent design, old style design, no backgrounds,  no team logo.
Back Design:
 6.5 out of 10 Decent layout, Only up to 5 year stats and career totals, only 1 color printing, cool old school look and feel.
Player Selection: 7 out of 10 Good, 1 HOFer and a good mix on the others.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Pop  Out to third base.  2 missing cards kills a chance for a hit. Only one keeper from a not so great insert set doesn't help either. The fact that it's Mike Schmidt gets wood on the ball but it isn't enough. I will be contacting Upper deck to see if they will make good on the missing cards.

I really have grown to like this set a lot, this particular pack just falls a little short.

Thanks for Reading!
