Looking Back At Hobby Masters

Over the years there have been tons of various insert cards placed into packs.  Some stick around and others exit faster than you can blink your eyes.  The Hobby Masters inserts have been around for over 10 years and are probably one of my favorite insert cards that aren’t game used or autographed.  I can remember back in 1996 when I was just beginning to collect, I pulled a Frank Thomas 1996 Topps Hobby Masters insert.  This card wasn’t like anything I had seen before.  I can still remember looking up the book value and seeing $15.00 next to that card back in 96.  The Hobby Masters inserts changed designs over the years as they branched out into other sports such as football, basketball, and hockey.  The 1996 design is my personal favorite.  Depending on the year and sport, each set can range from 10 to 20 cards.
