A 20-year-old NFL retail break
This co-worker is a big San Francisco 49ers fan and at one point he bought this for his man cave. He’s not really a card guy, but more of a game-used 49ers jersey collector. So he decided to gift this blister to me.
I opened a good amount of this product in 1995, as we as the SP brand, which was high-end at the time and was one of the first sets I completed.
I digress. Yesterday during my lunch break I stopped by my locker and noticed that I still had this thing sitting on my top shelf. With the NFL kicking off this week I decided to open it for fun. There really are no hits in here, just base cards, parallels and the occasional insert.
So, the Montana C-card was cool. It shows Montana and the 49ers against the Miami Dolphins jn Super Bowl XIX, which is the last Super Bowl to be held in the San Francisco Bay Area. that Super Bowl was held at Stanford University in Palo Alro. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl and will again be in the Bay Area.
The first pack had a card that literally made me laugh out loud. I mean check out this seductive rookie card of former Jets draft pick Kyle Brady.
Pack two wasn’t quite as awesome, but it had a card if one of the newest Hall of Famers, Charles Haley, and a good-looking rookie card of Michael Westbrook. Oh, and it had TWO silver parallels. Money!
And the final pack featured a dud rookie QB card, but the last card in the pack was none other than hall of fame 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice. Heck, my co-worker might even have this Rice jersey shown on this card.
