1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #31: In Which Head to Spain!

By the time you get to read this post, I will be touring around the city of Barcelona, Spain.  I am leading an overseas trip to Italy and Greece later this spring that is part of my History of Mathematics course I am teaching.  As a way to get ready to lead my first trip, the company I am working with is sending me to a short training session in Barcelona.  I've never been to Spain, so I'm rather excited (even if part of the time will be sitting in a big conference room having meetings).  All that said, if you send me a trade request or something, I probably won't have much email access until I return home early next week.

Pack 31:
5.  SB Leaders (Veras, Lofton)
36.  George Williams
58.  Jeff Manto
122.  Dennis Martinez
135.  Dante Bichette

A little surprise this one slipped by Upper Deck's PC police (especially in a product aimed squarely at kids).
218.  Edgardo Alfonzo
342.  Midre Cummings
You Make the Play:  29.  Hideo Nomo (strikeout)

Nomo's K is the first out of the sixth inning, no big deal though since we still lead 9-5.
Silver Signatures:
124.  Eddie Murray

The silver signature looks really sharp on this card!
275.  Edgar Martinez
