Well, I finished going through every card in my newly completed set. I found myself really happy about a few things in this set. First, it is pretty darned complete. 25+ cards per team. You can see who actually played for the team. Also, the set really focused on minor league careers, so I found myself fascinated by the path each player took to the majors. Contrast that to 2017, where I can't even see the player's whole major league career. One set of rookie cards, without a million Prospects, Future Stars, etc. Full set of post-season cards, including, gasp, cards for the games the eventually series-winning team lost!
Yes, the airbrushed hats are kinda sad. And the lack of action shots, with so many spring training pictures. But the completeness of the set really wins the day. And the little cartoons on the back...

This is a really cool set that deserves a closer look from collectors.

I was wondering if the white circle on the back of the card where the card number is located is a error/misprint if it is not printed yellow like the other cards? See card number 609 for Buck Martinez.
