I'm back with the next quarter of my 1998 Sports Illustrated presented by Fleer box! As I've said in previous posts, this is a set that I'm aiming to complete via this box - both the base set itself and the mini poster insert set.
Speaking of the mini posters, let's begin with those:
Packs 13 - 18:
Each pack comes with a mini poster - my six this go around were:
5. Nomar Garciaparra
8. Barry Larkin
18. Vladimir Guerrero
24. Mark McGwire
27. Ken Griffey, Jr.
30. Roger Clemens
Of the six posters, I needed both the Nomar and the McGwire! This puts me one poster away from completing the full mini poster set - only missing #7. Frank Thomas.
This set of packs produced 30 base cards (and no inserts or parallels). Of the 30 cards, I needed 7 which I guess isn't terrible...but not quite good enough for me to think that I'll actually finish off my base set with this box.
Overall, this was a quite of quiet set of packs (though I won't dismiss them entirely since I did land two of the three remaining posters I needed)! I still love the SI set though - if/when I complete the thing I should definitely feature it in more detail on my blog. After all, I like giving love to older sets sometimes (which is probably obvious by now if you follow any of my group breaks)!
