|1989 Score #642|
The first non-Topps cards I ever received as a kid were 1989 Score. I still remember my mom coming home from the supermarket with the packs, as a matter of fact. Once I got over my disappointment that they weren't Topps [Ed. Note: What an ungrateful kid!], I really enjoyed these cards. And, I still do, as I think '89 Score is a set that holds up pretty well. I especially liked the "Rookie" subset cards. Dwight Smith, who was left out of Topps' and Fleer's flagship sets in '89, made the cut for Score.
