Flashback Product of the Week: 1998 Playoff Absolute SSD

Wow!  Anyone remember these cards?  1998 Playoff Absolute SSD football cards looked really cool.  Every card in the base set had a window in it that featured a picture of the player that you could see through.  Packs of 1998 SSD were very thick and only contained a few cards.  Some of the key cards in the set would be the Randy Moss RC and Hines Ward RC.  This product didn’t stick around too long either.  Playoff came out with another version in 1999 where almost the entire card looked like a window with the player’s image on it.  All of the SSD cards are extremely condition sensitive because of the foil borders.  I think the design was great but the set should have had more key rookies from that year.  You sure don’t see cards made like this anymore.
