1994 Milwaukee Wave Promo Pack

This pack was likely received as an arena giveaway. It's one of those things that my parents find in a shoebox when they're doing some cleaning, and they give it to me when they stop over. There's not too much mystery about what I'll be getting, as with the cello wrapper two of the three cards are visible. Let's tear in anyway.

Top to Bottom:
#27 Victor Noguiera

Noguiera is arguably the best indoor goalkeeper of all time. He led the Wave to a string of championships and finals appearances in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

#9 Eloy Salgado

Coupon for 40 Cents Off One Palermo's Pizza (exp. 7/31/1994)

I'm pleased to report that Palermo's Pizza is still around and doing well in Milwaukee. In fact, they made good by sending me a coupon for a free pizza when I sent them this photo of unacceptable pepperoni distribution/volume last year.

All in all, not too surprised about the contents of the pack. Multiple copies of the two player cards floated around my house, as my siblings and I all probably got the same pack upon entry. Maybe Mom and Dad, too. Yeah, the only reason I remember Salgado is because of this card. I don't think I've ever seen any of the other cards in this set.
