- England were not there.
- Indoor football - a first for a world cup
- It was really hot.
- and Alexi Lalas!
Yes Alexi Lalas. The Ginger, long haired, goatee bearded, musician. What a character. What a player.There was 210 cards in the set with some inserts 3D holograms, International All stars and Postcards from Pasadena. The last two inserts were a way to make collecting the set more interesting for those countries not at the World cup. Another notable feature was that they were bi-lingual. They came in English/German, English/Spanish and English/Italian. If memory serves me correctly they cost £1.99 a pack.
There were three USA squad members who plied their trade in England at the time- John Harkes, Roy Wegerle and Juergen Somer. Also members of the squad were Brad Friedel and Claudio Reyna, they were part of Soccer America?
I will bust two packs.
14 Eric Wynalda USA! USA!
An interesting set of cards that I'm not sure set the world of card collecting on fire.
Again if your interested in some packs I have about 8 more.
Hope you enjoyed.
