At a recent card show in Fayetteville, I was rummaging through a dime box and finding all sorts of crap I didn’t need, yet didn’t pass because they were a dime. There was a whole bunch of product called “Action Packed” from 1993 which I was not at all familiar with. The cards had raised images on thick, strange cardboard, and there were tons of HOFs and Legends. I was certain it was more overproduced 90s offerings, and turns out I was right.
However, these are actually not bad little cards. The images are raised on the card, although you can’t tell in the scan. And the backs are pretty informative. I picked up about 25 of players I was interested in. I also thought the Abbot and Costello card was neat. I wish the older player cards had been printed in this same color theme rather than the sepia.
So even though I know these are worthless, I’m glad to add them to my collection. My call: Treasure!
