Human Highlight Film makes for a cool card

I know in the last few years, Panini re-released Triple Play. The cards featured illustrated players. However, I found them to be a bit too cartoony for my liking. They seemed more like chariactures. Big heads and goofy grins.

Back in the '90s, there was some really cool illustrated cards. Fleer had their Provisions insert set, just to name one in particular. While the players were illustrated, it was in a more realistic way, with cool, indightful background imagery.

While digging through an old box of cards, I found these two. I think this style would make for a pretty cool insert set nowadays. What do you think?

  1. I don't know if there's any interest on his part or the card companies', but I'd love to see Neal Adams (the artist on the Classic card; also drew Batman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Deadman, X-Men, Avengers and, of course, Superman vs. Muhammad Ali) draw more sports cards.
