Flashback Product of the Week: 1993 Wild Card Superchrome Football

Photobucket

Wild Card was one of those flash in the pan manufacturers that came around during the early 90’s.  They lasted a few years and then faded away.  Despite their short existence, some of their rare cards such as those popular Stripe inserts can still command insane prices on the secondary market.

1993 Wild Card Superchrome Football is basically a parallel of the regular ’93 Wild Card set, just like a lot of chrome products are today.    The main difference between the two is that the Superchrome cards have a metal finish to them.  This is one of the earliest uses of the word “chrome” in the hobby.  Boxes of this stuff can be found for $20.00 today.
