1991 Leaf Preview #6




















Card Review:  9.5 At one time this was the single most prized card in my entire collection.  The novelty of it has faded and it likely wouldn't crack my top 25 (if I ever get around to doing a ranking) now, but it's still a card I like.  The 1991 Leaf design is my favorite of the Leaf sets after they stopped being a mirror of Donruss.  The base card from this set is actually better looking than this one, or at least I like the photo a little better.  These preview cards were sent to dealers.  I remember the first time I saw this in a dealers glass case, and being utterly shocked at the $10 price tag.  Fortunately the spoiled kid down the street bought it and traded it to me for a handful of crap (some Clemens or the like from the era).

Number of this card in my collection: 1
