Tino Tuesday #54: 1998 Ultra Big Shots #13
For Christmas in 1997, I got a box of Fleer Ultra baseball cards. At the time, boxes were around $70, so it was pretty high end for 15 years ago. Tino Martinez had just come off of his monster 1997, so I knew he’d be featured in a few insert sets in Ultra.
One of my favorites is this Big Shots insert card. The insert feels very mid ‘90s, from the name to the design. The purple is just ok. I wish it was an actual stadium, and not a random generic cartoony one at the bottom. Plus, I don’t love the image cutting off his legs. However, I do love the “Big Shots” block letters up the side.
