Another wonderful 90’s innovation is front and center in this card: see-through acetate windows. (Well, it’s front and back and left of center, but you get it.) Warren Sapp graces the window of this card, maximizing his visual presence with a particularly voluminous hair style. (LOL!) The first thing I always did with these cards was hold them up to a light and think “Sweet, I can see through it!” In as much as they looked cool, I did find it hard to flip through a stack. Corners of other cards would always get snagged on the die cut edges around the acetate. The back describes perfectly why I used to dread the week my Packers played Tampa Bay. They always seemed to harass Favre into a mediocre-at-best performance, even if the after the whistle back and forth between Favre and Sapp was hilarious. Funny, though, the thing I remember about Sapp’s three-sack divisional game is that the Packers won 21-7 on their way to a second straight Super Bowl. Go Pack Go!!!
(PS – Strongly resisted the urge to make any “fro” puns in this post. Wasn’t like I FROze up, just worried it might be a FRO-away joke. ;-D)
