Tino Tuesday #50: 2000 Impact Mighty Fine In '99 #MF15
In 2000, Impact put out a 40-card insert set called "Mighty Fine In '99". The set included the 25 key players from the Yankees Championship team, as well as 15 other players from around the league. It was cool to get cards of the lesser-celebrated guys like Jeff Nelson and Clay Bellinger.
Tino, in fact, was pretty good in 1999. I don't know if he was mighty fine, but he hit 28 HRs and drove in 105 RBIs. Those numbers pretty much in line with what was expected of him from around 1995-2001.
I like the design of the cards. Big, block letters that really stand out highlighting the name of the insert. The polka dots in the background are a little weird.
Overall, a pretty cool card, and even cooler set concept.
