Baseball Card Evolution – 1994

on April 24th, 2015 by capewood

See my post Capewood’s Theory of Baseball Card Evolution here.

Bowman – Stage 6

 Bowman’s only year a full Stage 6. It’s got the back photo, the foil, the gloss and the full bleed printing.

Donruss – Stage 6

Donruss was also at Stage 6, but not as nice a card as Bowman. The name on the front is hard to read and there are not enough stats on the back.

Fleer – Stage 5

Fleer is another year from Stage 6, but this is a nice design with an uncluttered front.

Score – Stage 4

The fronts featured good photographs and the backs are nice but that horrid dark blue border on the front ruined this set.

Topps Stage 4

The front is a bit more cluttered than the Score but it’s much more colorful and bright. I always liked the backs of this set as well.

Upper Deck – Stage 6

Pretty good except for that goofy elongated insert photo on the front.

Since I seem to have most of the mainstream 1994 Eckersley cards, I’ll show the rest that I have. There were a lot of card issues in 1994. The Eckersley cards I’m missing are Bowman’s Best (7), Finest (7), Upper Deck Fun Pack (4), Leaf (6), Pacific (6), Select (6), SP (6), and Studio (6).

Collector’s Choice – Stage 4

This is the first year for Collector’s Choice. It looks very much like 1993 Upper Deck.

Flair – Stage 7

Fleer’s attempt at a super premium card like Topps Finest. Printed on thicker card stock, with full bleed printing, gold foil and super high gloss, all on the front and the back.

Pinnacle – Stage 6

Pinnacle, in their 3rd year, jumped right from Stage 3 to Stage 6 with this pretty good effort. This is their best Stage 6 card as future years would be heavily lathered with gold foil.

Stadium Club – Stadium Club

Stadium Club started in 1991 already at Stage 6. There were some design changes for 1994, most notably going from gold foil to red foil but it remained the great brand it had been.

Triple Play – Stage 6-

This Donruss product started in 1992 mainly trying to appeal to kids. It moved to full bleed printing in this, it’s final year of it’s original run, but didn’t incorporate foil. So it’s not quite Stage 6.

Ultra – Stage 6

Ultra, Fleer’s first attempt at a premium card, started in 1991 as a Stage 3 card, but jumped to Stage 6 in 1992. In these early days of Ultra, they always had 3 photos on the back. For some reason, the foil logo on this Eckersley card is sideways, as though this was a horizontal card rather than vertical.

1994 Bowman – Ryan Klesko

It occurred to me while I was doing my series on card brand evolution in the 1990s, that I could have approached it in a different way by showing in each post, a card from each year from the 5 brands. So if you can stand to see some more 1990s cards, I…

Yesterday I presented my theory of baseball card evolution. I hope you liked it.Score didn’t so much evolve in the 1990s as stagnate and die. It debuted in 1989 at what I call Stage 3 of the evolutionary ladder. The cards were printed on white card sto…

Baseball Card Evolution in the 1990s – Fleer

Baseball Card Evolution through the 1990s – Bowman

on April 7th, 2015 by capewood

I started collecting cards in 1985. From that vantage point it seemed that baseball cards had been pretty static for years. Sure, Donruss and Fleer came on the scene in 1981, but by 1985, they were pretty set in their ways. By 1990, we had three more m…

Old glossy card yellowing

I scan a lot of cards and one thing I notice, particularly about glossy cards from the 1980s and 1990s is that the cards can yellow badly, especially on the white borders.  Here’s a recent card I scanned to show the effect.I could be wrong, but I’…

Randy Johnson Batting

on March 23rd, 2015 by capewood

I should have saved that Randy Johnson 1992 Stadium Club card from last week until I got through the rest of his cards I own.

1995 Collector’s Choice Special Edition

You don’t see a lot of cards featuring pitchers at the plate. Especially American League pitchers. What is going on here. It appears that Johnson was attempting to bunt. If you look closely, behind the second O in his name at the bottom of the card, the baseball seems to be resting on home plate. I’m guessing that the photographer caught the ball just before it bounced. More interesting is that Johnson did not have an official at bat in either 1994 (when this photo was presumably taken) or in 1995. This must have been a spring training game.

1996 SP

 You also don’t see many cards featuring a pitcher on base. But here’s Randy Johnson on 1st base despite not having any official at bats in 1995 or 1996. Another spring training photo? Was Randy used as a pinch runner?

1999 Upper Deck #301

 In 1999, Johnson was with the D-Backs so no more designated hitter to hide behind. He doesn’t look to enthusiastic here but he had 97 at bats in 1999, with 12 hits, including 4 doubles.

2001 Upper Deck #183

 Since 2001 Series 1 Upper Deck came out in November 2002 (remember when you could start collecting next year’s baseball cards before Thanksgiving?), this is most likely a photo from the 2000 season. It looks like he got a good swing but the look of dismay on his face suggests a poor result. While winning his 3rd Cy Young Award, Randy hit .157 with 13 hits, 2 doubles and 8 rbis. Not a bad performance for a pitcher.

2004 Topps #450

 According to this card, Randy Johnson is the tallest player to ever hit a home run. Randy has exactly one home run in his career and that was in 2003. Johnson is no longer the tallest player to hit a home run. In 2004, 6’11 pitcher Jon Rauch, then with the Expos, hit a home run. Rauch has 2 hits in his 11-year career. More recently,  Chris Young, another 6’10” pitcher, hit a home run for the Padres in 2008. Young is now in the American League and Rauch is a relieve, so it may be awhile before we see another real tall home run hitter.

2008 Topps #396

 After two years with the Yankees, Johnson was back in the National league in 2007. In 2007 he only had 1 hit and only 15 at bats. I guess the red bat didn’t help. 2008 was a bit better with 7 hits. For his career, Johnson hit for a .125 average with 625 at bats, 78 hits, 14 doubles and 1 home run. He walked 19 times and struck out 296 times.
