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.

My goal is to get at least one card from every person with an NBA, NASCAR or NHL card.
