Flashback Product of the Week: 1991 Wild Card Football

Photobucket

Wow!  Anyone remember these cards?  In 1991 Wild Card introduced their premier football card product.  Each box contained 36 packs with 15 cards per pack.  I think Wild Card was ahead of their time, because they had multi-tiered parallels of cards broken down into 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, and 1,000 Stripe inserts.  This all took place about two years before the first refractors were introduced to the hobby.  The key card from this set would be the Brett Favre RC.  The 1,000 Stripe version of the Favre rookie can sell for over $1,000.00.
