Best Picture: Wade Boggs. It seems that there are lots of cards that feature Boggs with a ball in flight. Here’s a picture of something Boggs was well known for. He clearly looks to be fouling off yet another tough pitch. He’s brought his hands in to make contact. It’s a master at work.
Hall of Famers: Wade Boggs, Jim Rice
Future Hall of Famers: Roger Clemens
Reason to Buy the Set: Once again, the three stars lead the way. Add in Oil Can, Dewey, Steamer, Gator, and Hendu, and you have a great collection of Sox favorites. It’s also another team set that, back in the day, was stacked with rookies of the future stars of the team. It just doesn’t always work out that way.
Overall Reaction: This was Score’s first entry into the baseball card market. The colors certainly make a bold statement. If you’re going to use strong colors, it’s nice that they mix it up a bit. It prevents the set from looking stall in a binder. It’s a great player selection, on an attractive design. It’s a great set.
