Now in Color: Studio 1992

After the first year's black and white release, Studio added some color in 1992. We've got a color pose atop a black and white action shot on the front, and color printing on the back. The set had the same number of cards as in '91, 264 and the same number of Cubs, ten.

The back again was stat free. The "Up close" section gives us a chance to learn a little about the player and I'll feature some of this.

Five of the ten Cubs were also in last year's set, while five are new to Studio.
