1991 Classic #T48

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Trade with Friend
Not much to say about this card. It's your standard Classic card featuring a nice photo of Bo watching his latest home run exit the park. The back features stats from the past season and lifetime stats. Also, the traditional Classic trivia returns. Who knew the Seattle Mariners hadn't had a winning season up until 1991 when they went 83-79?

1992 FLEER #701

Type: Subset
Acquired: Trade with Friend
It's been a while since the last post here on The More You Bo. The holiday's took up a lot of my time, but we're back and better for 2019! Now to this week's card...I always loved these Superstar Specials cards, because it felt like you got more for your money. Not only did you get Bo on this card, but the Big Hurt Frank Thomas joined him too! Oh and two Orioles pitchers were also thrown into the mix to show off a few alums from Auburn University.

1995 Pacific Collection #20

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Purchased Online
How can you not love the prismatic effects on this card. It is almost blinding in it's beauty! The shot could have been better, but once again we get an over the shoulder look at Mr. Jackson during his California Angels days. The back photo looks like someone just said something that mad Bo angry. You wouldn't like Bo when he's angry. Also, It's interesting to me that the English verbiage is the smaller of the two languages on the back.

1992 FLEER #86

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Pulled From Pack
I do like the color scheme of this 1992 FLEER set. I just like the way the metallic green color blends into white down towards the bottom. The picture of Bo himself though, is a lacking a little. I see what they were going for here with an over the shoulder look at Bo at the plate, but it just doesn't work for me. This is one of the few times we get to see the back of Bo's jersey and it is unique in that way. The picture on the back is the better of the 2 in my opinion.

1988 FLEER #260

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Bought at Card Show
I love the look of this FLEER card set. The red and blue stripes on the white background are classic Americana. The backs are clean, give complete stats and also give us a nice split of night/day & home/away numbers for each player. I also really dig the "candid" shot of Bo on this card. He's got a smirk on his face that says "I'm ready to crush some balls"!

1988 Donruss Baseball's Best #119

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Bought at Card Show
I didn't even know Donruss Baseball's Best was a thing when I picked this card up. I thought it looked weird and the colors were different from the regular issue set. I just thought it was some sort of special card from the 88 Donruss base set. I like the picture on the front, but the orange, red and black color scheme does little for me. I prefer the blue, red and black of the regular set.

1991 Score #692 MASTER BLASTER

Type: Base Card
Acquired: Trade
A few months ago we took a look at the 1992 Score RIFLEMAN card and just like that one I absolutely love this card! If you are a Bo collector this is a must have for your collection. The red laser graphical background was mind blowing in the 90s and it still gives me goosebumps today. The photo on the front is a nice action shot, but the back has an outstanding shot of Bo smiling while out on the diamond. Great job Score!
