Acetate Card of the Day: 1999 E-X Century Nomar Garciaparra

This card is from the first set that I ever opened and found an acetate card. I had gone to the local hobby store right between my friend Eric’s house and mine and we would go buy baseball and football cards. I had saved some lunch money over a couple days just to have enough to get some packs of cards and I opened a pack of cards with these cards in it. While I did not pull this card, I recently grabbed this card from CheckOutMyCards.

As you can see, these cards are a really cool looking acetate set. When you have the cards in your hand, the photo actually is raised off of the card which gives it more of a 3-dimensional look in person. I also really like the shadow around the last name of the player and the logo inside the logo on the left. Really a cool looking set.

And what a better player to have from this set if you’re a Red Sox fan. Nomar was hitting like crazy these years so it’s a great addition.

    I wish companies would go back to doing cards like these. This was by far one of my favorite 90′s sets. They are sweet stuff.

    Thats when base cards meant something and were worth collecting a set when they look like this.
