Parallel set: Topps Gold
Card number: 110
Beginning in 1992, Topps began inserting Topps Gold parallels into their flagship set. In 1993, the Topps Gold parallel set mimicked the regular Topps' set with only a gold foil name plate at the bottom and a ToppsGold label at the top serving to distinguish the two sets. While the Topps Gold cards were fairly rare in 1993, the parallels haven't held up well over time. In fact, in today's age of over-foilization (my word), Topps Gold parallels from 1993 look pathetically tame. In addition, like most cards that are heavy on foil, the Topps Gold set is tough to read - making this particular parallel clearly worse than the original card (and I don't particularly like the original card either). I guess you could say that 1993 was a bad year for the Topps' flagship set.
