Whether it's airbrushed logos, terrible designs, or paper thin card stock, they just don't do much for me.
I picked up a large lot a few years back. Mixed in were a few large stacks of these RBI Prototypes, including all of the biggest starts of the early 90's (except of course Bonds, whose card I would have actually wanted).
See all of the above commentary. Paper stock that could pass as toilet paper. Designs that any modern day photoshop amateur could surpass in minutes, and...wait. A cool photo?
Most of the cards were lackluster at best. But this Nolan Ryan card just screams awesome. Clearly the photo comes from some kind of press conference. Maybe his introductory presser after signing with the team?
Either way, it was a nice little gem in a otherwise unexciting stack.
