Card companies have definitely regressed. I'd wager that their general production costs (outside of GU acquisitions and autograph contracts) have shrunk significantly. Look no further than the downsize in quality and innovation with base sets and inserts. When there are nice looking cards (high level products), they pass the buck to you!

Alright, last photo of the day!

My newest and possibly best 90's addition



This has to be my favorite set of all time.
