This is now retro-retro! It is how retro cards were back in the 90s.

I didn't look at the back when I first saw it (hard to do on my tablet) but I actually like the back of the card quite a bit here. I like it more than the NBA Retro set of the same time frame, in fact.

Collect for the love of the hobby! I feel that every sport should get a card set documenting it's year, with full season stats on the back.
