1990 Score Football Series 2


After spoiling myself with a really good pack a couple of days ago, it's time to come back to earth with a pack of really bad football cards.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
339 Mark Robinson (God, that orange is gorgeous!)

340 Frank Reich
341 Chip Lohmiller (Uh-oh, looks like we're getting sequential here.)
490 Chris Chandler
491 Mark Lee
492 Johnny Meads
566 Ronnie Lott All-Pro
580 Barry Sanders All-Pro (Barry looks none too happy about his NFL-mandated lei photograph session.)

575 Chris Doleman All-Pro
406 Mike Kenn (The guy just narrowly avoids having two first names. Thank God for that second "n".)
396 Bryan Hinkle
392 Keith DeLong
657 1990 Rookie Dexter Carter (Remember how, for like a year and a half, this guy rocked the shit?)

658 Tony Casillas
659 Joe Morris
515 Don Griffin

Grade: B-
Two HOFers, one guy who could make it someday (Doleman), Jim Kelly's backup, and the only quarterback who posted a single-game QB rating of both 0 and 158.3 (the highest you can get). The only thing bringing this pack down a notch is the Viking on the wrapper. Hate is truly an emotion that runs deep.

Man, to have won the Super Bowl trip with Franco Harris... I grew up watching the "Immaculate Reception" as it happened, thank you! :-)

If Dexter Carter had any sort of a memorable career, I could put my grandkids through college by selling the stockpile of his rookie cards amassed in my collection. Damn you Pro Set!

I loved Score football cards back in the day...cheap and easy (to find).
