Day 13: One Of Your Favorite Cards From The 1990s

When your a kid collecting, it was one thing to collect current stars from your favorite team. It was usually another to get cards from an All-Time Great that stopped playing well before you were even born. That's what made cards like this cool:

1992 Upper Deck - Ted Williams Heroes  #30 Ted Williams
As a Red Sox fan, it was easy enough as a kid to collect the stars from the 70s, 80s, and 90s - Yaz, Rice, Boggs, Clemens. The greatest player in Red Sox history however was not something most kids would find opening up a pack. Ted Williams last played in 1960, and his last card for Topps was 2 years prior. This Upper Deck subset was my first real opportunity to own a Ted Williams, and I didn't care if it wasn't from when he played.
