Last week I received the two boxes of 1991-92 Skybox Basketball cards that I ordered off the eBay. My wife and I had a great time opening 72 packs of cards and sorting through the 12 cards each pack contained.
After sorting through the cards, I found that I am just four cards away from completing the set (I need cards: 74, 93, 338, 638).
It was great fun ripping two boxes worth of packs, but I quickly found out that I enjoyed the Series 2 packs much more than Series 1. Here's why:
I seriously love everything about these cards and I can remember pulling a few of these cards out of packs when I was a kid. I especially love the Barcelona '92 cards. Putting together this subset was a great trip down memory lane.
It was also an educational experience because I did not remember that the following cards were also found in packs:
I'll be posting some more of the highlights of the 91-92 Skybox set through out the coming weeks.
Now that I have two Skybox Basketball sets near completion (1990-91 & 1991-92), I'm turning my attention to the 1992-93 Skybox set. I'm having so much fun busting these boxes that I'll probably keep working my way up the Skybox ladder. The boxes are getting more expensive as I move later in the 90s, so my progress at completing sets will slow down considerably, especially as more and more inserts are introduced into the product.
